    Cool 1,400 HP Ford GT Sets 252 MPH Standing Mile World Record

    Explore Kenny Brown Performance today!!
    The Performance Power Racing Twin Turbo Ford GT accelerates from 203 to 253 MPH in 7.3 seconds, less time than it takes most cars to hit 60 MPH. Its 252.97 MPH standing mile is a new production car world record.

    That 1,400 HP figure is at the rear wheel, not the crank, and is achieved with the aid of two turbocharges pumping 26 PSI into the 5.4-liter V8.

    The previous record stood at 231.66 MPH and was held by a modified Dodge Viper.

    That is pretty damn cool. I remember the track video of that car....was completely out of its element and fell on its face in the 1/4 mile. Clearly top end is what this thing was built for. Not sure I got the nads to do 253 mph in a car!! lol

    Big stuff continues to go right for the Ford name. Impressive numbers and better than that we beat a standing record set by a Viper.
