SEMA wouldn't be SEMA without a 750-horsepower Mustang or two

Eat that, Hellcat.

After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

The SEMA trade show showcases the latest and greatest the automotive aftermarket has to offer every year in Las Vegas, but there are plenty of cars making regular appearances. One is the ubiquitous Ford Mustang, and this 750-horsepower example is a solid metaphor for SEMA as a whole.

The exterior is a perfect approximation of the sheer amount of stuff floating around SEMA. Do you want hood scoops? There's a booth for that. Big, flashy wheels? There's a booth for that, too. Spoilers and body kits? You get the idea by now. And not only is all of that available at SEMA, it's all present and accounted for on the Hurst Kenne Bell R-Code Mustang, too!

The interior is just as flashy as the exterior. Because Hurst is involved, there's an awesome cue-ball shifter replacing the stock unit. The seats were reskinned in Katzkin leather, too. But, other than that, there isn't too much going on in here. That's likely because this Mustang saved its efforts for its beating heart.

Lurking under the hood of the Hurst Kenne Bell R-Code Mustang is a heavily modified 5.0-liter V8. Packing a 3.2-liter Kenne Bell supercharger and a whole bunch of supporting mods, this 'Stang is putting out a not-too-shabby 750 horsepower. Better yet, it's street legal in all 50 states, so you could reasonably own one.

In fact, you can own one. A grand total of 50 R-Code Mustangs will be built and shipped off to lucky owners across the country. If 750 horsepower isn't enough for you, there's always the option to move up to one of Kenne Bell's larger blowers, which can produce horsepower well into quadruple digits. What a time to be alive.

SEMA isn't quite complete without a 750-horsepower Mustang
