World’s Fastest 2018 Ford Mustang GT Rules the Streets, Too

By -

Turbocharged Mustang GT runs low 9s and beats everything from a roll.

The video above claims to feature the world’s fastest 2018 Ford Mustang GT, with this twin turbocharged beast running a best quarter mile time of 9.1 at 154 miles per hour. We don’t know for sure that no other 2018 Mustang has run a quicker time, but in any case, this refreshed pony car runs low 9s on the drag strip.

In this video from the Street Car Video YouTube channel, this 2018 Mustang GT shows that it isn’t just a quarter mile machine, stomping just about everything that dare lineup on the street in a series of highway roll races.

World’s Quickest 2018 Mustang

Provided that 9.1 at 154 is the quarter mile record for the 2018 Mustang GT with the 10-speed automatic transmission, it is the quickest of its type.

According to the brief details, the 5.0-liter engine is “stock”, although it has been fitted with a twin turbo setup that lifts the output from 460 horsepower to 900 horsepower. Needless to say, there have to be some supporting mods to increase the power by nearly 100 percent, but by “stock”, they likely mean that it has all of the stock internals. We can see that it has lightweight aftermarket wheels and big, sticky tires out back, with the new 10-speed automatic transmission moving the power from the engine to the wheels.

Racing Action

In the video above, the 2018 Mustang GT takes on five different high performance competitors and in every case, the world’s fastest new Ford pony car takes the win.

The first competitor is a 900-horsepower C6 Corvette ZR1 and when the two go on three, the Chevy hops out to a small early lead, only to have the boosted Ford quickly catch up and win.

The next competitor is a twin turbocharged fifth generation Camaro, and while the Chevy gets the win in the first run when the Ford goes into neutral, the next two runs show the Mustang take an early lead and walk away with ease.

Next, the Mustang takes on a YSI-supercharged C6 Corvette and this is the best competitor in the video. In the first run, the Ford takes an early lead, but the Corvette stays close in the loss. On run #2, the Corvette gets the better start and that leads to the worst loss of the video for the Mustang, but non the third run, the Ford wins another tight race.

Finally, the last two races are against a pair of Mustangs – one with another twin turbo setup and one with a Paxton supercharger. In both of those videos, the 2018 twin turbo GT takes the easy win.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
