Size-wise, this Mustang measures over 3 inches (8 cm) in height, 10.5 inches (27 cm) in length and 4.5 inches (12 cm) in width. It’s roughly 100 times smaller than the wheelbase of the real Shelby GT500 and should look pretty good on a shelf or a desk somewhere, especially after you add the rear cover with the faux taillights and Shelby badge.
As for what makes the real GT500 so inspiring to car folk all over the world, it all starts with the hand-built 5.2-liter ‘Predator’ V8 engine underneath the hood. The unit also comes with a 2.65-liter supercharger, leading to a total of 760 hp (771 ps) and 625 lb-ft (847 Nm) of torque. Everything is sent to the rear wheels with the help of a Tremec TR-9070 DCT seven-speed dual clutch gearbox, getting you to 60 mph in a little over 3 seconds.
What’s even more amazing about this Mustang is that it can cover a quarter mile in under 11 seconds, and this is without any aftermarket modifications. Once you do add performance enhancing mods, you’ll be able to turn it into a 9-second car with relative ease.
