A high-performance Ford Mustang is high on the list of car desires for many people. However, the upper levels of the Mustang can get quite expensive. For example, the 2022 Mustang GT500 starts at a whopping $77,155. That’s quite a far cry from the starting price of the basic Mustang GT Fastback. However, a Ford dealer in Ohio wants you to have your cake and eat it too. LFP wants you to have a 700 horsepower V8 Mustang for less than $46,000.
Roush supercharged Mustangs from Lebanon Ford Performance are a powerhouse bargain
For several years, the high horsepower Mustang offerings from Ohio-based Ford dealer Lebanon Ford have been a phenomenon for their low price and high power. However, especially in today’s crazy car market, the offerings from Lebanon Ford Performance seem like outright grand theft.
For just $45,495, Lebanon Ford Performance will give you a base model 2022 Ford Mustang GT 300A with a manual transmission. Under the hood, LFP installs a Roush Phase 2 supercharger kit. Remarkably, the supercharger addition boosts the stock Coyote 5.0 V8 engine to 750 horsepower and 670 pound-feet of torque. That’s only ten horsepower shy of what you find in a GT500!
If you add $500 to that price tag, you can upgrade to the ten-speed automatic transmission. Many enthusiasts will undoubtedly prefer the manual transmission. However, automatic transmissions are fantastic for drag racing. So, buying an auto with 750 horsepower is a perfect out-of-the-box drag racing party machine.
While it may seem scary to purchase a modified car, Lebanon Ford Performance makes it worry-free. The dealership is an authorized Roush installer. So, each Mustang sold includes a 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty.
Finally, Lebanon Ford Performance doesn’t just make their cars available to folks in Ohio. The dealer wants to share these performance Mustang models with the world. That’s why they are offered with zero down payment on approved credit. Additionally, LFP partners with a shipping company to deliver them nationwide. Finally, the Roush Phase 2 supercharger is 50-state emissions legal. So, even the folks in California can play!
Why are these supercharged Mustangs so cheap?
The simple fact is that Lebanon Ford is a high-volume dealer for both Ford and Roush. Look at the base price of a 2022 Mustang, $36,285, and the price of the Roush Phase 2 Supercharger kit, $8,500.99. That gives you a total of $44,785.99.
Now, because Lebanon Ford Performance is a vendor, it starts to make sense that the dealership would have the wiggle room to let these cars go for this cheap.
However, the Roush kit does not include any suspension or tire upgrades. While you get a roots-style supercharger that happily bumps the power up to near GT500 territory, it definitely won’t put it down without a fight. However, a set of stickier tires is a whole lot cheaper than the $30,000 you’d need for a GT500. Ultimately, the Lebanon Ford Performance makes for super fun daily drivers or a fantastic place to start for a race car of just about any discipline.
While Lebanon Ford Performance doesn’t provide any specific performance figures like acceleration or lap times, it’s safe to assume that a 750-horsepower Mustang is fun to drive. For under $46,000, it’s definitely hard to beat.
