We've featured Ohio dealer Lebanon Ford before, for the crazy powerful modified Mustangs they sell for reasonable money. Now, the dealership has a Dodge Demon-style ready-to-drag-race Mustang. Lebanon Ford announced today , a $60,000 Mustang GT that promises consistent ten-second quarter-mile times. That's more expensive than Lebanon Ford's $45,000, 1200-hp twin-turbo Mustang, but the LFP 10 comes with lots of upgraded drag racing hardware for your money.
For the LFP 10, the Mustang GT's 5.0-liter V8 gets a Stage 2 Roush Supercharger, upgraded fuel injectors, a high-flow air intake, an ECU tune, a bigger oil pump and increased cooling capacity. Lebanon Ford says this setup is good for up to 700 wheel horsepower on 93 octane gas, though the dealer told us that most customer cars will run around 650 for reliability's sake.
Lebanon Ford also adds Viking adjustable shocks and BMR springs tuned for drag racing, and installs a set of Mickey Thompson tires on 17x5-inch front, 17x10.5-inch rear wheels. The LFP 10 also gets a bolt-in roll cage to keep the NHRA happy, and upgraded drive- and half-shafts to cope with the extra power.
In testing, Lebanon Ford says an automatic-equipped LFP 10 will run consistent 10.5-second quarter-mile times. Depending on driver skill, altitude, weather and other variables, you could see quarter-mile times drop into the nines, the dealership claims. The LFP 10 package is available on manual-transmission Mustangs, though Lebanon Ford points out that it's much trickier to run consistent 10s with a stick shift.
For reference, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon runs a manufacturer-claimed 9.65-second quarter-mile at 140 mph—at around $25,000 more than what you'll pay Lebanon Ford.
Like the Demon, the LFP 10's impressive quarter-mile time is largely down to its grippy drag-racing tires. The fit to the LFP 10 are technically DOT-legal, but you're not going to want to use these anywhere but the drag strip. If you plan on using the LFP 10 on the road, you'll probably want to invest in some suitable tires.
Unlike the Demon, the LFP 10 doesn't come with any sort powertrain warranty—since the dealership modifies the factory Mustang after it's been titled to the owner, this is strictly an aftermarket machine. The $59,995 asking price includes a base-model automatic Mustang GT, every LFP 10 upgrade listed on . If you want a Mustang GT Premium Package as the basis for your LFP 10, Lebanon Ford can do that too, for a little more cash.
So, the LFP 10 might not be as full-on crazy as a Demon, but it sounds like it comes pretty close. Not bad for a $60,000 car that you might actually be able to get your hands on.
