With a crude suspension and and drivetrain, we’re not sure if the Ford Mustang GT500 can really handle all the power it’s got in a real world track scenario, but that hasn’t stopped the blue oval from adding more and more grunt.
A few months ago, the 2013 Shelby GT500 arrived, and if we were owners of the old car, we’d be feeling envious right now. Why? Because the 5.4-liter V8 has been replaced with a new 5.8-liter developing 650 hp and 600 lb-ft (813 Nm) of torque. That’s a huge improvement over the model that came before it.
But get this: if it’s mental power, Shelby Performance Parts have got a bolt-on fix to the problem, which adds 300 horsepower to the GT500s built under the 2007 to 2012 model years. This extra go comes from a twin-screw 3.4-liter Black Supercharger Tuner Kit.
Shelby also launched a new Competition Heat Exchanger made of 11-inch fans and a Competition Intercooler Tank that you can store ice or drive ice in.
