T​he Mustang Shelby GT350R is one hell of a machine, as anyone who has so much as sat in one can tell you. Powered by a 5.2-liter V8 which produces a simply eye-watering 527 horsepower, and just over and 425 pound-feet of torque, this thing truly is a muscle car. And as if all that wasn't enough you can actually get one of these with a manual transmission! That's right: six gears, a clutch pedal, and all the excrement that will come out of you when you hit the throttle pedal.

H​owever, the guys over at Hennesey Performance don't think that the GT350R is quite so perfect. So as you might imagine the Texas-based tuning company decided to stick a supercharger onto the thing. Hennessey decided to name their new beast the HPE850, and they have even thrown in a 24,000 mile warranty,

W​hile fitting superchargers is all fun and games Hennessey have decided to show the GT350R what's what with a good old fashioned rolling drag race. The result is of course obvious, the modified HPE850 absolutely creamed the stock Shelby, However, this does serve as a reminder of just how big a difference superchargers actually make, as you can truly "supercharge" the performance of an already fast car, and turn it into an absolute monster.
