We know what you’re probably thinking, that it has received a lot of work under the hood, and you are definitely not wrong, because according to the video that you are about to watch, it has a twin-turbo setup. The trickery has likely unleashed a four-digit output, which, in theory, allows it to take on some of the quickest vehicles on the planet.
To better put this Mustang Shelby GT500’s quarter-mile time into perspective, we will remind you that the Tesla Model S Plaid did it in a hair over the 9-second mark, with a 154.10 mph (248 kph) exit speed. The electric hyper sedan lost its crown to the 1,914-hp Rimac Nevera, which can sprint to 60 mph (97 kph) in a neck-snapping 1.85 seconds, as it posted 8.582 seconds, at 167.51 mph (269.58 mph).
Now, before moving on to the clip that is a little over one minute long, we will remind you that the stock Mustang Shelby GT500 is a 10-second car without any outside intervention. It can deal with the 0 to 60 mph (0-97 kph) sprint in just 3 seconds and doesn’t break the bank either, as it has an MSRP of $72,900. Power is supplied by a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that pumps out 760 hp and 625 lb-ft (847 Nm) of torque.
