    Default 2013 Shelby GT500

    Of all this car has to offer, this is what jumped out to me big time!!

    "A new in-dash performance computer can clock acceleration times and features a drag strip-style “Christmas Tree” countdown timer."




    "The 2013 Shelby GT500 will come packing a 650 hp supercharged engine that Ford says is the most powerful production V8 in the world. The 5.8-liter mill sends its 600 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via a carbon fiber driveshaft. Even more impressive, the top speed of the new Shelby is said to be over 200 mph, making it the first Ford since the GT supercar capable of breaking the double century mark. And it does it without incurring a gas guzzler tax, according to Ford, although it hasn’t yet revealed what the exact fuel economy is. The current, 550 hp GT500 manages to squeak by the tax with a 15 mpg city, 23 mpg hwy rating."

    This is my dream car. I got a chance to drive a 2008 Shelby GT 500 KR, 540 hp. On a 15 mph roll , I stabbed the throttle about 3/4's of the way to the floor and the car went on to severe wheel hop for @ 100 feet, nabbed second gear and laid down another 30 ft of rubber. By that time, I ran out of room at the end of my street! It was awesome!
