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.
