Presented classic Ford Bronco with 760-horsepower engineJuly 14, 2020
The automotive blogger spoke about an interesting modification of the classic Ford Bronco SUV – the car received a 760-horsepower V8 engine from the Shelby GT500 and manual transmission. The video captures the monstrous acceleration of the car.
Back in November last year, Ford introduced a restored instance of the 1968 Bronco SUV. The car received a V8 engine from the Shelby GT500 sports coupe. The presentation of the SUV took place at last year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Well, a couple of hours ago, the famous American actor and car blogger Jay Leno uploaded a video to his YouTube channel in which he spoke in detail about a powerful SUV.
It is unlikely that ever, the designers of the original Ford Bronco SUV thought that someone would come up with the idea of replacing a standard 100-horsepower engine with a monstrous analogue with a capacity of 760 hp.
It is noteworthy that Ford engineers made such an upgrade. Paired with this engine is a five-speed manual gearbox. In the GT500, the V-shaped figure eight combined with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Ford does not sell the 5.2-liter supercharged V8 as a boxed engine, making this Bronco a very exclusive car. On its engine there is a plate saying that it is an exclusive motor – “1 of 1”.
The aim of the project was to make Bronco look as ordinary as possible. The car has a dark blue body paint, white top, white rims. The interior is fully consistent with the interior with which the original car of the 1968 model was supplied. According to Mr. Leno, the entire project took three months.
At the end of the video shows a monstrously fast acceleration of an SUV. The car sounds malicious, its front part sways up and down when Leno presses the gas pedal.
