Hennessey Performance has revealed the 2021 Hennessey Venom 1000 package for the Ford Shelby Mustang GT500.

The Shelby GT500 is the Ford Mustang‘s top performance model with 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque generated from a 5.2-liter supercharged V8. The Venom 1000 package turns it up to 1,000 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque. The car features a flex-fuel tune and can run 900-horsepower on 93 octane pump gas, but performs its best on E85 fuel.

Cosmetically, the car is given Venom and Hennessey exterior badges and serial numbered plaques indicating the magic that lies below the hood. An air and oil separator system and a recalibrated transmission system are featured with additional upgrades to the fuel injectors, air induction, supercharger belt, drive pulley, fuel line & fittings, intercooler cooling brick, and more.

While introducing the vehicle, Alex from Hennessey described the car as “the best American shifting muscle car you can buy.” Put to the test against a Porsche 911 992 Turbo S, the Venom 1000 Mustang took a convincing victory in a rolling drag race.

The Hennessey Venom 1000 package will be available for the 2020 and 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500s and comes with a 3 year/36,000-mile warranty. Head over to the Hennessey Performance website for more information.
