Check out this video from late 2012 when Revan Racing’s 2007 Ford Mustang GT500 Super Snake set the record as the world’s fastest Mustang, clocking a speed of 220.8 miles-per-hour. Driver Van Collier achieved this feat at the Texas Mile, an old World War II runway that serves as the site for many of today’s one-mile speed records timed in the U.S.
Revan owner JW Brake (nice name for the owner of performance parts company) had L&M Engines put together a 5.8 built aluminum block motor, with Darvon sleeves, an FRPP CJ crank, L&M/Diamond pistons and Manley rods. The heads are ported Ford GT units with custom cams and is fed by a trio of Walbro 435 pumps with an Aeromotive regulator and 205-lb/hr injectors. A ton of other modifications were made to the car as well, but it’s pretty funny to hear JW talk about the build-up to this record run. He never envisioned the car would set this type of record – in fact, he really didn’t expect to cross the 200 MPH threshold. As he puts it, to him this GT500 was just a cool cruiser that he used to swing by his local Starbucks. We’d recommend keeping the speed down just a bit for those type of errands in the future.
