    <p>Details surrounding the 2013 Mustang Shelby GT500 have surfaced as part of a new labor agreement between Ford & the UAW, foreshadowing what should lead to a modular rendition of the 351ci / 5.8l Romeo-built power plant, slated to land in the 2013 Shelby GT500.

    Am I the only one that thinks "what's the point"? It can't put the power down now.

    Yes. 600hp is F-ing cool. I can't help but wonder when the government is going to step in and start regulating power ratings from the factory. I don't think a dumbass with $60k should be driving around with 600.

    Regulations are already coming ny friend. You will be taxed based on how much more pollution your car makes than factory. Will be a yearly tax.

    Huh?


    There have been emissions regulations since before I was born. The current topic is about whether the government will come up with a way to regulate the power output of privately owned vehicle. 600 HP doesn't mean you're creating more emissions than the next guy. Hell, there's a Toyota in my neighborhood with a *cough* tune and a fart can that puts out WAY more emissions than a factory 600 HP Mustang will. o_O

    I doubt the gov will step in to limit HP. Although they were about to implement a limit on motorcycle top speed but the manufactures did it on there own, I believe the self imposed limit was set to 186.

    I'll be ordering the 2013 as soon as I can.
