Neiman Marcus is not selling a 700-hp Mustang with AWD
The 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible Neiman Marcus Limited Edition features a raft of upgrades to make it stand out from the usual pony car. And not least of them is the engine. The 5.0-liter V8 has been supercharged up to 700 horsepower and over 600 pound-feet of torque.
Though the most questionable part of the listing is the bit about the car making use of all-wheel drive. To be clear: it won't. Already called out as a misprint in other outlets, we've got calls into both Ford and Neiman Marcus to confirm this is a goof, not a pony car revolution. (To be fair, the three Ferguson prototypes built in the 1960s, prove the idea has at least been considered before.)
Back to reality. The catalog also lists an upgraded suspension, exhaust, bodywork, interior, and Brembo brakes packed inside 20-inch wheels. All that kit translated to a 0-60 time quoted at 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 195 miles per hour. Those are supercar figures, in a modified Mustang – with the wind in your hair. That is, it would be, anyway, if you can afford the $95,000 that Neiman Marcus is asking for this custom set of wheels, and manage to get your order in before 100 others do. But for all that scratch, it also comes with a two-day course at a Ford Racing School so you can learn how to get the most out of all that muscle.
