DETROIT, MI - Ford Motor Co. has the 707-horsepower Dodge Hellcats squarely in its sights with the release of a new, beastly Mustang.

"Featuring up to 727 horsepower, the new Petty's Garage 2016 Mustang GT King edition means that Ford's pony will be hell for some cats," the company said in a release.

As the name implies, Ford has partnered with NASCAR legend Richard "The King" Petty to offer the limited edition Mustang GTs, built to Petty's own specifications.

Only 300 of the brawny Mustangs will be built for the 2016 model year, including 243 King edition models, 43 King Premier and 14 King Premier convertibles.

Under the hood is a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine with 670 horsepower. An optional level-two upgrade uses a smaller supercharger pulley to boost horsepower to 727.

"I've always liked the look of the Mustang, and the 2016 model gives us a great base car to work with," Petty said in Ford's release. "These new King edition Mustangs are pretty much the way I'd build my own. They are great fun to drive, and have a signature single exhaust.

The starting suggested retail price is $67,495 for the King Edition and $90,495 for the King Premier.

Petty's had been building Challengers, but I think Fiat Chrysler dropped the ball and Ford step in. Lots of nice looking Mustangs coming out of their shop.

This was last year's run of Petty Mustangs. Looks sharp.

Took this picture earlier this year. Lots of awesome Challengers. Most Petty fans are Mopar fans.

The the carter blue lip and side skirts on the first one ruins it.

Looks like a 16 year old went at the ground effects with a can of plastidip.
