If you have always wanted a Whipple-blown 2018 Mustang GT, Beechmont Ford in Cincinnati, Ohio, is making you an offer that’s tough to refuse. You can pick up a base GT packing a Gen 5 twin-screw blower with 800 horsepower and 10-second potential for just $39,995.
Our goal is to build cars that can accomplish the goals of everyone. — Charlie Watson, Beechmont Ford
That’s right, for under $40,000 you will get a 2018 Mustang GT optioned with the base 300A package and equipped with six-speed manual transmission. Beechmont installs a Stage 1 Gen 5 supercharger and will even finance it with zero money down if you qualify. And, if you are worried about the warranty ramifications, you can add the optional Whipple powertrain warranty for only $795.
“…Our game plan is simple: You imagine. We build. Our goal is to build cars that can accomplish the goals of everyone,” Charlie Watson, Marketing Manager at Beechmont Ford, told us. “From the weekend cruiser to the track enthusiasts, if you’re interested in something unique, we’ve got you covered! We also offer custom paint, exhaust, suspension, and anything else you can think of…”
In fact, the customer car you see here is getting a few other upgrades along with the Whipple Gen 5 before it gets shipped off to Kansas City. The customer moved from a blown Mustang to a C7 Z51 Corvette, but decided he missed that boosted ’Stang life. As such, he spec’d out this 2018 Mustang with the blower along with 800-horsepower halfshafts from the DriveShaft Shop and a Competition Series cat-back exhaust from Magnaflow.
“We sold over $500,000 in Whipple superchargers last year. They are a fantastic platform for high horsepower, reliability, and the warranty option is tough to beat! They are a great complement to our slightly smaller-displacement 2650 ROUSH TVS supercharger that makes 700 horsepower,” Charlie added. “We want to have an option for everyone! We are partnered with ROUSH, Whipple, Vortech, Paxton, ProCharger, Magnuson, Hellion, On3, and hundreds of other performance brands. There is virtually nothing performance-related that we don’t have access to. There are no limits!”
Of course, if you just want that base Mustang with a blower, that price includes a $1,500 rebate, so it probably won’t last forever. You can head over to the dealer’s official performance page here, or call Terry “Beefcake” Reeves at (513) 478-1965, and spec out the boosted Mustang of your budget dreams.
