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 company’s full complement of suspension upgrades—plus a 777-horsepower engine package boosted by a Whipple supercharger—the Q750 will hold court in the Nitto Tire booth at next week’s show.

Looking classy in silver and black, the Steeda Q750 rolls on Velgen’s lightweight, low-pressure-cast  VMB9 wheels fit with Nitto Tire’s impressive new NT555G2 summer tires.

“The Steeda Q750 StreetFighter is the culmination of our 28 years of uninterrupted and continuous refinement of the Mustang platform.” Dario Orlando, President Steeda Autosports, said. “This 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.”

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.

The Q750 packs 777 horsepower under the hood thanks to a Whipple 2.9-liter supercharger system, which includes an air-to-water intercooler, a massive Crusher Air System, and a unique PCM calibration which has been granted an Executive Order number from the California Air Resources Board.

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 car’s center of gravity, and sharpens its handling. Velgen wheels wearing Nitto Tire‘s new NT555G2 summer tires 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 company’s wares.

Of course, when you have a Whipple-blown Coyote under the hood producing nearly 800 horsepower, you’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 Tremec’s Magnum XL six-speed manual transmission, which is not only more robust than the stock MT-82 manual, but offers 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.

The Steeda Q750’s other unique visual appointments include one of the company’s new rear wings along with its unique front fascia and aggressive lower chin spoiler.

One of the first vehicles to feature Tremec’s Magnum XL Six-Speed Manual Transmission System for the 2015+ Mustang, the Q750 will not only enjoy a more durable transmission, but smoother, more positive shifts. The system allows for the installation of direct-shift Magnum XL via a blow-proof bellhousing.
