Now that the 2015 Ford Mustang is here, it’s time to watch as aftermarket tuners and builders dig into the car. Not wanting to be left out of the fun, Ford Racing has unleashed its engineers on the new Mustang to see what sort of 1/4 mile ETs could be achieved with some basic modifications. The results have been compiled into a video called The .99 Challenge which features three modified ’15 Mustangs: two V8-powered GTs and one 2.3L EcoBoost model.
With basic performance upgrades and sticky tires, the guys got some impressive ETs out of the cars, including a 12.56 run with the four-cylinder version and a 10.97 from a supercharged GT. Take a watch and see how they did it…
