Supercar - slayer : meet the 825 hp fast Ford By J.News Forget the most extreme creations of Cosworth in the UK or Shelby in the US. This fire-breathing fast

This fire-breathing fast Ford outguns them all. After a visit to London-based tuner Clive Sutton, however, it emerges with nearly twice that – a scarcely credible 825 hp – catapulting this working-class hero squarely into supercar territory.

In this video we'll take a look at a 2017 Ford Mustang from Petty's Garage that makes 825 horsepower. This car was a DeDona Tint and Sound in Greensboro, NC

The Ford Mustang Sutton CS800 starts life as a standard Mustang GT coupe (or convertible) with ‘just’ 416hp. After a visit to London-based tuner Clive Sutton, however, it emerges with nearly twice that – a scarcely credible 825hp – catapulting this working-class hero squarely into supercar territory. Here’s what you need to know.

It has EIGHT HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE horsepower

BMW and Ford drivers most likely to have their car stolen or written-off

  BMW and Ford drivers most likely to have their car stolen or written-off Claims for write-offs are up 55 percent since 2014 – and Ford and BMW drivers are most at risk, says warranty company. The analysis has been carried out by the warranty company’s GAP insurance division, which can cover the shortfall that might arise from an insurer’s comprehensive policy settlement. It found that BMW and Ford each accounted for 17 percent of overall GAP claims, followed by Mercedes-Benz (11 percent), Vauxhall (11 percent) and Audi (4 percent).

Did we mention the power output? That 825hp is more than plenty of big-league supercars, including the Ferrari 812 Superfast and McLaren 720S. Only million-pound machines, such as the LaFerrari and McLaren P1, manage more. When it comes to pub bragging rights, the Sutton Mustang takes some beating.

The main ingredients in this heady brew are a 5.0-litre V8 and a stage-two Whipple supercharger – the latter clearly visible on top of the engine above. Combined with high-flow fuel injectors and a larger throttle body, these transform the Mustang from a budget BMW M4-rival into something altogether more serious. Maximum torque is a thuggish 640lb ft – all of it channelled through the rear tyres…

Damp roads aren’t its forté

As you’d expect, the CS800 is a bit lively on wet, winter roads. Its 20-inch rear wheels – wrapped in 305/30 Pirelli P Zeros – break traction with hilarious ease. Even in the dry, putting all that power down is clearly an issue; note the 0-60mph time of 3.8 seconds: hardly sluggish, but slower than supercar rivals. Top speed is a claimed 195mph.

Learning to drive a racetrack in a historic car for the super rich. So instead of hopping right into a half-million-dollar supercar , I had Ford slot me into the day-long program that it puts on for new owners of the 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.

Use common sense, however, and this modded Mustang is no knife-edge wild ride. Long gear ratios and a progressive power delivery (one advantage of a supercharger over a turbo) allow swift, safe progress on twisty tarmac. With stiff suspension and slightly vague steering, the CS800 is no paragon of poise, but nor is it simply an unreconstructed drag racer.

In terms of power-per-pound, it’s a bargain

Clive Sutton’s demonstrator seen here is loaded with £35,000 of extras, taking its price just the wrong side of £100,000. Fortunately, most of these options are cosmetic and, frankly, unnecessary. The ‘basic’ Mustang CS800 costs £66,942.

To put that into perspective, it’s scarcely more than a 431hp BMW M4, and around £11,000 cheaper than a 370hp Porsche 911 Carrera. Both those cars are most sophisticated and ultimately more rewarding to drive. But if you want the maximum number of ponies per pound, there’s no contest.

You can turn up the V8 via your phone

Perhaps the coolest feature on this fully-loaded CS800 is the £5,820 XForce exhaust. This aftermarket, quad-pipe system isn’t cheap, but we’d be sorely tempted. It sounds absolutely fantastic, amplifying the V8’s full-bodied bellowas you can hear in our video. And it also offers the ultimate party trick for car shows: smartphone control.

We'll Need To Get Used To The Fact There's A New, Very Different Han Solo

  We'll Need To Get Used To The Fact There's A New, Very Different Han Solo When we all finally see Solo: A Star Wars Story, there are going to be a contingent of people who, unfairly, probably won’t give Alden Ehrenreich a chance because he’s not Harrison Ford.For the life of me, I’ve been trying to think of a more iconic movie character, one who has appeared in multiple movies and who is more closely associated with its actor than Han Solo is with Harrison Ford. The only other one I could come up with is (yeah, you probably guessed it) Indiana Jones and Harrison Ford. Ford has appeared as Solo in four proper Star Wars movies – and the Star Wars Holiday Special – over the course of 38 years.

Download the XForce app and you can adjust the volume of the tailpipes via sliders on your phone screen. These can be tweaked according to throttle opening, engine rpm, speed and location, so you can – for example – programme the exhaust baffles to close automatically near your home. Or indeed the opposite, depending how frosty neighbourly relations are…

Not ALL the options are strictly necessary…

Standard spec on the CS800 includes adjustable KW coilover suspension, Ford Racing Recaro seats with heating/cooling, sat nav and a ‘Shaker Pro’ audio system.

Aside from the XForce exhaust, we’d stretch to the upgraded brakes (£1,920) and short-shift kit for the manual gearbox (£1,067). An auto ‘box is available for £1,500. Options probably best avoided include the stick-on rear window vents (£509), remote-control front strobe lights (£1,740) and underbody neons (£780). No point gilding the lily, right?

Other people love it – and so will you

A supercar elicits a wide range of reactions, not all of them positive. This Mustang is different. Who doesn’t love an old-school V8 muscle car, especially one that sticks two fingers up to the automotive elite?

The Sutton CS800 feels a bit uncouth compared with ‘premium’ rivals, but that’s part of its appeal. It’s the ultimate, right-hand-drive Mustang, and there’s nothing quite like it.
