We previously posted a closer look at the new 2013 Shelby GT500 where the engineers at SVT attempted to push the GT500 to 200 mph. In their enduring attempts on the hot desert, they fell short of 200 mph by only a few miles-per-hour. As a follow-up, Ford has released a video of the Shelby GT500 pegging the 200 mph mark on the Nardo test track in Italy.
It was always in the playing cards to actually hit 200 mph since the new 2013 Shelby GT500 is said to have the capability to reach such a speed. This means everything to the marketing team at Ford who now have a much easier task of touting their 662 horsepower pony car to finicky enthusiasts. Check out the exclusive video of the 200 mph GT500 run below.
