Last weekend’s 12th annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction was a huge home run on several fronts for Ford Motor Co., which had a strong presence at the South Florida event.

One of the star of the show was a totally tricked out 2013 , which was used in the actual making of the “Need For Speed” movie and is just like the one used in the video game of the same name. The high-performance custom Mustang sold for $300,000 to Dave Flynn of the Flynn Automotive Group in Youngstown, Ohio. All of the proceeds went to benefit the Henry Ford Health System.

The 2015 is yet to reach showrooms but the people at Whipple Superchargers have already developed a 700-horsepower upgrade for it, according to a leaked press release. This has likely been made possible because the upgrade is designed for the 2015 Mustang GT, whose 5.0-liter V-8 is a carryover from the outgoing model.

The upgrade consists of a 2.9-liter twin-screw supercharger, which is said to have 99 percent volumetric efficiency and is designed to be installed with very little modification to the engine. The upgrade also includes an air-to-water intercooler, high-flow fuel injectors, a high flow intake and exhaust system, and retuning of the ECU.
