This is not just a muscle car, it is legendary car enthusiast Carrol Shelby's finest creation. From 1965 to the present day 500 hp mustang Shelby motors and Ford have teamed up to make one of the most amazing muscle cars ever in production. I really believe this car does not get the recognition it deserves. The 2011 gt500 puts out an amazing 500 hp to the rear wheels, 510 ft lbs of torque, has a double overhead cam and comes stock supercharged on a 302 block. This is the fastest production car ever made. Shelby has really come a long way in production. While the new gt500 is one bad muscle car I don't think it will ever match its grandfather. The 1967 Shelby gt500, my all time favorite car. This car was even featured in the movie Gone in 60 Seconds as the ultimate steel. Off the assembly line these cars put out 335 hp and 440 ft lbs of torque on a 428 block. For 1967 this was incredible. Carol Shelby's legacy will always live on through his cars whether it is the Cobra, gt, or Series 1 and who knows what his next idea will be.
An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has been doing a little research on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast simply because I discovered it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this topic here on your web page.
