Supercharged Ford Mustang Brings Screaming American Muscle To Autobahn


This supercharged Ford Mustang GT S550 is perfect for use on the open roads of Germany. To test the performance of this supercharged Mustang GT, AutoTopNL got behind the wheel of this yellow supercharged Ford Mustang GT and crashed into the Autobahn.

In stock form, the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine of the Gen1 S550 Mustang GT produces 435 horsepower (324 Kilowatts) and 400 lb-ft (542 Newton Meters) of torque. For many Mustang owners, stock just isn’t enough, a sentiment supported by the extensive offering of aftermarket accessories for the Ford Mustang. This particular yellow Mustang GT benefits from the addition of the Roush supercharger which increases the power output of the Coyote 5.0 liter V8 to 750 horsepower (560 Kilowatts).

At the Autobahn, this Mustang GT does a respectable job as an Autobahn missile, a job typically reserved for high-performance German sports sedans. Powered by a 6-speed manual transmission, the supercharged V8 is able to drag the Mustang to speeds high enough to peg its speedometer of 160mph (260 Km/h). This top speed is achieved in 5th gear because 6th gear is an overdrive gear that does not produce any additional performance. The Mustang’s power levels allow it to easily reach 160mph, but there are limits that prevent it from going beyond this limit.

The S550 Mustang is nearing the end of its production life with a teaser for the new S650 that has already been leaked from Ford. The S550 generation turned the Mustang into a more capable and usable muscle car. The S550 debuted in 2015 and ushered in the addition of an independent rear suspension, a turbocharged 4-cylinder base engine, and the ability to sell Mustangs globally.

Prior to the S550 generation Mustang, the Ford Mustang was an American icon built only to be sold in America. After the international market opened, the Ford Mustang became the best-selling sports car globally.


With the S650 generation set to debut in 2023 for the 2024 model year, we look forward to continuing to see the global community enjoy the Ford Mustang. How fast do you think this supercharged Mustang GT could go if it didn’t have a limiter?
