Producing plenty of supercharged horsepowers, this Scott McLaughlin Limited Edition Supercharged Ford Mustang sits perfectly on a set of Forgestar F14 flow-formed wheels
Scott Thomas McLaughlin is a New Zealand professional racing driver competing in the IndyCar Series, currently driving for the No. 3 Dallara-Chevrolet for Team Penske. The New Zealander won the Supercars Championship 2018, 2019, and 2020 series. And he loves Mustangs. Scott McLaughlin has his name written on two Ford Mustangs. One of them he drove to his third straight Supercars title this year. And then there’s the really powerful one we have here today.
While the Scott McLaughlin Limited Edition by Herrod Performance Ford Mustang – or SM17 for short – might come with street plates and leather streets instead of a complete roll cage and sponsor decals, but it’s got well over 130 horsepower more than its circuit-oriented brother. The difference in torque is even greater than that.
In this gorgeous red Ford Mustang, the 5.0 Liter Coyote V8 engine delivers monstrous power levels. This is available thanks to a 3.0-liter supercharger nested in the heart of the otherwise standard powerplant. In turn, this Ford Mustang can count on a whopping 775 horsepower and 597 lb-ft (810 Nm) of torque. The engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or a ten-speed automatic gearbox, allowing for really fast times. In turn, this allows the Mustang with the automatic gearbox to sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.4 seconds.
What a beast.
To make this rather standard looking Mustang get a little bit more understated flair, we’ve built a set of Forgestar F14 wheels for this project. For this particular build, these F14 wheels are sized 20×9.5 in the front and 20×11 in the rear. The customer went with a Gloss Black finish for his wheels. In addition, these are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires measuring 275/35/20 in the front and 305/30/20 in the rear, making the SM17s front boots as big as a standard Mustang GT’s rears.
Add the adjustable anti-roll bars and recalibrated Magneride dampers to round out the suspension changes, giving the driver improved handling and driving dynamics. And in the end, those massive rear wheels & tires, sitting snug in the large wheel arches, do a marvelous job of turning nearly 800 horsepower into forward motion and an adrenaline rush.
