DRAG RACE: Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 v Tuned 850hp Mustang

Clive Sutton Fettled Mustang vs Shelby GT500

Mat’s lined up in a Mustang Shelby GT500, and alongside him, we’ve got something very special… A one-of-a-kind Clive Sutton CS850! Now we’re sure we don’t need to tell you, but both of these cars are absolutely epic! Starting with the GT500, it’s powered by a 5.2-litre supercharged V8 that can put down 760hp & 850Nm of torque. It drives the rear wheels and tips the scales at around 1,900kg.

Next up, we have the CS850. Now, this arrives with a 5-litre V8, however, it’s been tuned… so along with a supercharger being added, it’s had a whole load of other work done, including work on both the suspension and brakes. As a result, it now produces 850hp & 900Nm! However, the Shelby has one key advantage… It’s automatic, while the CS850 is manual! Will that prove the difference? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
