Dubbed the Scott McLaughlin Limited Edition SM17 by Herrod Performance in full, but shortened to SM17, the 578kW factory-backed monster has been revealed on the first anniversary of Ford Australia announcing the Mustang R-Spec.

The SM17 is based on a 578kW/810Nm supercharged Ford Mustang, with a specific new exterior design done for McLaughlin.

Thanks in the main to a completely new 3.0-litre supercharger from Whipple dubbed the Gen 5 HP 3.0, it now makes a stonking 578kW (almost 800bhp) and 810Nm of torque on good old 98 octane fuel.

“When I first saw it I thought it was mega. It was everything I was hoping for,” McLaughlin said, speaking to Race News.

“It’s a phenomenal package. Any Supercars driver would love to have their name on a car like this, and I had Rob Herrod to handle all the heavy lifting. I’ve always wanted a racy red car with black wheels. And now I’ve got it – and then some.”



The Scott McLaughlin Limited Edition SM17 by Herrod Performance goes into production early in 2021.
