2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
Ford claims that their 2013 Shelby GT500 Mustang will be the most powerful production V-8 engine in the world. Boasting 650-horsepower, Ford annouced that the updated Shelby GT500 will be able to achieve a 200 miles per hour top speed. The current GT500 is electronically limited to 155 mph but apparently the new one is not under such restrictions. Ford's goal was to "put the Shelby back on top of the Mustang pyramid". The updated Shelby will have a redesigned grille, new hood and special lighting, including high-intensity discharge headlights. A new six-speed automatic transmission will have a true manual mode -- press a button on the shifter and stirring the gears is all on you. Is it too fast for an average driver? Of course not. Man up! Expect the new Shelby to arrive in showrooms next summer.
