DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 23, 2015 – Featuring up to 727 horsepower, the new Petty's Garage 2016 Mustang GT King edition means that Ford's pony will be hell for some cats.

Petty's Garage – the in-house speed shop of NASCAR legend Richard 'The King' Petty – returns with a limited number of highly modified Mustang GTs built to the specifications of The King himself.

2015 Ford Mustang GT King Edition'I've always liked the look of the Mustang, and the 2016 model gives us a great base car to work with,' said Richard Petty. 'These new King edition Mustangs are pretty much the way I'd build my own. They are great fun to drive, and have a signature single exhaust.

'With the new paint on the Premier edition,' he added, 'that's how you know we built it. They look pretty sharp.'

The dealerships Petty's Garage has worked with are enjoying a good amount of success. 'We're looking forward to having an even bigger footprint in more locations this year,' said Jeff Whaley, chief operating officer, Petty's Garage. 'This is such a good opportunity for enthusiasts to own a serialized limited-production Petty Mustang GT.'


The modified Mustang GT will come in three editions with small production numbers – 243 King models, 43 King Premier and 14 King Premier convertibles. Customers can order the cars through their local Ford dealership.

Starting with a factory Ford Mustang GT, Petty's Garage adds a Ford Performance supercharger to the stock 5.0-liter V8 engine. The supercharger adds 235 horsepower, for a total output of 670 horsepower, backed by a three-year, 36,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. Other powertrain modifications include custom engine calibration, a cold-air intake for better breathing and a MagnaFlow exhaust.
