You’ve probably heard about the classic tale of how the Grinch stole Christmas, right? The folks at Hennessey Performance has a different version of that story and it involves a 1,000 hp Ford Mustang GT500 going crazy around a racetrack at Continental Tires’ Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas.
In this version, the Grinch stole Hennessey Performance’s Christmas tree that crew members were still working on and decided to strapped it the top of an Eruption Green Shelby Mustang GT500 in a hurry. This is no ordinary GT500 though as it’s been fitted with a twin-turbo system that boosts its power output to a blazing 1,000 hp. What’s even more interesting about this video is that despite the significant additional turbulence created by the tree on top of the car, it was able to hit a top speed of 192 mph!
We suggest that you watch and enjoy this exciting video and find out if the Grinch actually managed to steal Christmas using a 1000 hp Shelby GT500.
