Vortech Superchargers – you’ve heard of them right? ’cause if you haven’t, you’re no friend of mine – is going to present at the 2013 SEMA show, in Las Vegas, the Ford Mustang Yellow Jacket. It sounds weird, but it looks damn cool!
The Vortech Ford Mustang Yellow Jacket is the right beast to make anyone jealous – at least it’s sporting the right color. This particular Mustang is powered by a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine fitted with a V-3 Si supercharging system, which is why Vortech’s supercharged Mustang Yellow Jacket now develops 605 horsepower and 473 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to 7.5 psi of boost. Now, that’s a pretty powerful pony!
The Vortech Mustang Yellow Jacket is not all just about raw power; the Mustang comes equipped with a carbon fiber hood, a Webasto custom electronic sunroof and 20-inch iForged Icon three-piece wheels covered in Falken Azenis FK453 tires. Sweeeeeet, if I do say so myself; and I do! Vortech also fiddled with the suspension and brakes of the Mustang, ending up receiving a powder-coated Maximum Motorsports Road & Track box suspension and Baer 6S brakes with 6-piston calipers on all four wheels. However, the one thing Vortech did not disclose is the price tag of the aforementioned upgrades installed in the Mustang Yellow Jacket. Should be worth some attention, don’t you agree?!
