A few recent reviews of the new 2013 Shelby Mustang GT500 have somewhat downplayed the vehicles over-all demeanor in terms of lacking inspiration. Whatever conclusion you may get from the new Shelby GT500, you cannot deny the massive 662 horsepower 5.8-liter V8 engine’s enthusiasm. With that much power on tap, and a decent 24 mpg estimated highway fuel consumption to boot, this makes for one of the best V8 engines to come off of a mass-production assembly line.
Another particular aspect about the new 2013 Shelby GT500 is its ability to reach a speed of 200 mph. The engineers at SVT, Ford’s Special Vehicle Team, show their faces in the exclusive videos below giving us a taste of what the new Shelby GT500 is all about. Not to mention, they show us the GT500 hitting a few mph shy of the 200mph mark in the middle of a hot Desert.
