Want a 10-Second Mustang? Lebanon Ford Has You Covered. (For $60,000)

There’s a laundry list of crazy fast cars coming from the factory nowadays. The Dodge Demon, ZL1, GTR, and Z06 just to name a few. You may be getting the itch for a new car, and a fast one that can compete, but maybe a Mustang is more your style or more in the range of your pocketbook. If that’s the case, you’re in luck. The crazy dealership responsible for a host of other ridiculously fast, and brand new, Mustangs, Lebanon Ford, is at it again, this time with a 10-second quarter mile Mustang GT named the LPF 10.

Far from stock (and a drive train warranty), the LPF 10 boasts a Stage 2 Roush Supercharger, upgraded, larger fuel injectors, a high-flow air intake, a re-tuned ECU, and a larger oil pump increasing cooling capacity. According to Lebanon Ford, the LPF 10 setup is built to output up to 700 wheel horsepower on 93 octane pump gas.

In addition to the power adders, you also get drag tuned Viking shocks with BMR springs, Mickey Thompson tires mounted onto 17×5-inch front wheels and 17×10.5-inch rear wheels along with a NHRA legal bolt-in roll cage and upgraded drive and half-shafts.

Lebanon Ford says the LPF 10 will run consistent 10.5 second quarter mile times, depending on usual variables including weather, altitude, and driver skill. The asking price for the performance? $59,995, sans the Premium Package, which you can upgrade to for the normal cost.

Is it better than a Demon or a Hellcat? Maybe, maybe not. That warranty is pretty attractive, but then again, so is an extra $20,000.

Can An Audi Wagon Beat The Mighty GT-R In A Drag Race?

Of course, most people’s first reaction to a question like this would be a resounding “no”. They would be wrong.  Another set of people may have said “yes”, but wit ha caveat of reasons such as “it must be highly modified”, or “the conditions weren’t right” , but they too would be proven wrong in this case.

The Audi, in this case, is no standard family hauler. No, this Audi is the RS6. As it is currently unavailable here in the states, here’s how the Audi stacks up on paper. The RS6 boasts 533 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, pumped out of a magnificent turbo V8.  To remind you of the GT-R’s more than reputable rap sheet, the latest iteration of Godzilla is currently putting out something in the neighborhood of 562 horsepower and 469 lb-ft of torque.

Anyways, on to the good stuff. Check out the video below from the boys over the pond at Carfection and let us know what you think? Would you rather have the wagon, or the almighty, but occasionally defeated, Godzilla?
