Hot on the heels of all the latest muscle car reveals such as the Trans Am Super Duty, SRT Challenger Demon and the Hennessey Exorcist Camaro comes a Mustang that has been tweaked by Clive Sutton, the London-based exotic car dealership, with 800 horsepower!

The custom-built Mustang, which is set to make its debut at the 2017 Top Marques show in Monaco today, is based on the 5.0-litre V8 Mustang GT but to get to the whopping new output figure, CS has added a high-performance supercharger system under the bonnet. With a six-speed manual sending the power to the rear wheels, this is just what proper Mustang enthusiasts would want. CS even gave it a Ford Performance short-shift gear lever along with a three-way adjustable suspension and a Stage 2 Whipple supercharger. It also upgraded the intercooler, gave it new injectors and a larger throttle body. it also gets a new exhaust system with long tube headers, sports catalyst and active-controlled quad tailpipes.

It wasn’t just under the bonnet where CS concentrated all its effort – the exterior was revised too and features a carbon fibre front splitter and side skirts while the boot lid gets an integrated flip-up spoiler. As for the cabin, it gets Ford Performance Recaro seats and a bespoke carbon fibre dashboard. It also has lots of Sutton badges along with 'CS800' stitched into the seats. If you think this car - with all that power and awesome looks – isn’t entertaining enough, then the nine-speaker, 1,000-watt sound system should help to make it more fun for you.
