By and large, the machines created for the SEMA show in Las Vegas are built for lounging around under convention center lights and not much else. All those go-fast parts we see bolted on do little more than collect lustful stares from from the crowd. But Creations n' Chrome set out to discover just what their bolt on additions to its Ford Mustang were good for. Under the outrageous 3dCarbon bodykit sits a Vortech supercharged 5.0-liter V8 good for around 580 horsepower at 8 psi of boost on stock internals. KW served up a set of Variant 3 coilovers, and Hotchkis took care of front and rear sway bars.

The crew rolled the blown Mustang out the to the Mojave Mile for a top speed run. The machine racked up a final velocity of 182.4 mph, though the final seconds of the run looked anything but stable (we hear there was a 20 mph crosswind). Still, we're impressed at the machine's performance. For perspective, the Boss 302 is only good for 155 mph. Check out the video for yourself below.

      Im betting that either it's 580whp (near 680bhp) or the car's underrated to run 182.4 mph in a standing mile. A lighter, quicker shifting, more aerodynamic, and almost as powerful Ferrari 458 did 177 in a standing mile, I believe.

        You compared torque curves? In other news a high strung naturally aspirated 2.0 making 300hp is equal to a forced induction 2.0 that makes 300hp. (Try again)

      Big whoop. It's not a production car. If I wanted to modify a car for HP (etc), I'd find something better than a Mustang.

      no way in hell a stock 13 cobra will do 202mph in the standing mile those estimated 202 is for the top speed.

      Or you could just buy a 2013 cobra with the same money put into that car, and do 202 with 661 HP.

        Not sure that the 2013 will do 202 in the standing mile. Ford only said that 202 would be its top speed. Will be interesting to find out though.

        1.- 2013 cobras are not out yet 2.-the estimated 202mph is top speed, not standing mile speed. a 2013 cobra wont come colose to 202 in the standing mile

      So wait im getting confused here. Was this a standing mile, or a top speed run?

      So I'm guessing this isn't a 6-cylinder Mustang with the lightweight driveshaft.

        That makes more sense. Great run!
