Ford says 200mph was the 2013 Shelby GT500 goal

As if the news of the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 receiving 650 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque wasn’t awesome enough, we also found the new Shelby snake was to be capable of 200mph.  When we read the details of this 200mph GT500 feat back in November, we were (for the lack of a better term here) floored.  C’mon, 200mph (stable) from a Mustang?  Crazy enough, it’s just what Ford had in mind the entire time.

Keep reading to get more on this fantastic accomplishment by Ford, Shelby and the SVT engineers & designers.

LA Auto Show: 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

2013 Shelby GT500

After seeing how much attention went into the 2013 Ford Mustang for the masses, we knew that the 2013 Shelby GT500 would have an even more impressive showing on the docket in Los Angeles today.  The 2013 Mustang Shelby GT500 will be propelled by an all-aluminum 5.8-liter (351 c.i. anyone?) supercharged V8, rolling along with 650hp and 600 lb-ft of twisting force.  Additionally, Ford and the SVT team with Shelby’s crew left no stone unturned with updates and improvements to the entire powertrain, braking systems, gearing, and suspension tuning.

If that’s not enough, the new Shelby GT500 also gets a redesigned front grille, providing additional downforce at speed, an menacing splitter, roaring exhaust, and lots more fine touches any Mustang enthusiast will appreciate.

So what are you waiting for?  Get going and check out all the fine tuning Ford’s done to the next Mustang Shelby GT500!

LA Auto Show: 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302

2013 Boss 302

It’s no secret any longer…the 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is back and is here to stay.  The updated 2013 Boss 302 builds upon the inaugural success of the 1970s legend’s rebirth in the 2012 model year.  How, you say?  Insane graphics, new paint hues, a rear seat delete, and so many more tweaks that make this car significantly resemble its namesake from the muscle car’s pinnacle era.

We had the first-hand chance to rip up the track in a 2012 Boss 302, and it was quite possibly the best performing, and yet, most refined Mustang to date.  It’s crazy to imagine just what the Ford team could possibly do to make such a great thing…even greater.

There’s so much more in store than we can lead in upon within the confines of a simple introduction, so you’d better check all the mess out in the official PR from Ford!

2013 Shelby GT 500 to have 600+ hp 5.8 V8


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. Sources say this engine should easily pump out over 600hp, putting Ford Mustang ahead of the ZL1 in the race to the moon. “How so?”, some might ask…well, the reported 5.8l V8 is to be supercharged as well.

Keep your eyes peeled for more 2013 Mustang and Shelby GT500 details as 2013 approaches…

2013 Mustang to inherit current GT500 cues

The rumor mill is back in full swing once again, with everyone spinning ideas about what the 2013 Mustang (and beyond) will look like and just how much next year’s iteration will pave the way for the 2015 Mustang.  Ford Mustang fans are no doubt looking towards the 2015 Mustang and its potential redesign (again), but for now, the focus on the 2013 Mustang design concepts and power train is primary.  Not much has been officially released by Ford insofar as monumental updates, but many sources hint at the current Shelby GT500 as the template of sorts for the upcoming Ford Mustang design.

2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 details emerge

Well, we all know that Ford is not one to stop within the R&D and product promotion arenas, so it’s no surprise the ground pounding photographers are catching glimpses of the forthcoming 2013 Shelby GT500.  What’s most exciting is the GT500 could prospectively pump out well over 600 horsepower.  Carroll, do we need a name change on aisle 5?  Perhaps…

Many sources are pointing to the fact the trusty supercharged 5.4-liter V8 will be bolstered to 5.8-liters (whoa, 351!) and the Eaton M112 will make its curtain call, leaving room for the next-gen TVS unit while providing more power, less noise, and more efficiency overall.
