Crazy Sound And Acceleration From The 760HP Shelby GT500

The Shelby GT500 is, and always has been, the ideal companion for thrill-seeking Mustang enthusiasts in desperate need of an adrenaline rush. Of course, this comes as little surprise. Even Carroll Shelby himself knew exactly what he was unleashing upon the automotive world when unveiling the original GT500 in 1967.

In its most recent form, the GT500 blends retro aesthetics, with cutting-edge ride dynamics to create a captivating experience for any motorist lucky enough to find themselves behind its wheel. Pair this with enough horsepower and torque to make a top-fuel junkie weak at the knees, and you have the ideal recipe for a classic performance car in the making.

Underneath its hood is a fire-breathing engine, quite appropriately referred to by Ford as the “Predator”. This powerplant is a 5.2L supercharged Cross Plane Crank V8, capable of churning out 760 horsepower, and 625 lb-ft of torque. The Predator comes paired with a Tremec 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which ultimately directs the GT500’s output through a set of 3.73 Torsen rear axles.
