Continuing the legacy of its high-powered, turn-key vehicles, Steeda Autosports is set to debut its latest Q-series machine at The SEMA Show next week. Featuring the companyâ€™s full complement of suspension upgradesâ€”plus a 777-horsepower engine package boosted by a Whipple superchargerâ€”the Q750 will hold court in the Nitto Tire booth at next weekâ€™s show.
â€œThe Steeda Q750 StreetFighter is the culmination of our 28 years of uninterrupted and continuous refinement of the Mustang platform.â€ Dario Orlando, President Steeda Autosports, said. â€œThis is without a doubt, the absolute finest and best integrated performance automobile that we have ever produced, effectively taking the Mustang to new heights never before reached.â€
The Steeda team put together a comprehensive vehicle package designed to deliver well-rounded acceleration, braking, and handling. Moreover, it is available as a turn-key package that is emissions legal and carries a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty.
As you might expect, the foundation of the Q750 is built on is its G-Trac suspension that shores up the factory independent rear suspension, lowers the carâ€™s center of gravity, and sharpens its handling. Velgen wheels wearing Nitto Tire‘s new NT555G2 summer tiresÂ work with the Steeda bits to put power to pavement.
We have driven a car equipped with a similar Steeda suspension package and it not only delivers improved traction and handling, but with the comfortable ride characteristics we have come to expect from the companyâ€™s wares.
Of course, when you have a Whipple-blown Coyote under the hood producing nearly 800 horsepower, youâ€™ll need a bit of extra traction. The performance of this package is certainly impressive, but what makes it truly stand out is CARB certification that makes it street legal. The calibration is said to address every necessary parameter to maximize performance, including fuel, spark, knock detection, torque management, and electronic throttle control.
Backing the boosted 5.0-liter engine is one of Tremecâ€™s Magnum XL six-speed manual transmission, which isÂ not only more robust than the stock MT-82 manual, but offersÂ the confidence of a direct shifter.
The Q750 should be a blast to drive and you can order one right now. If you want to see it in person first, check it out in Vegas next week.
