Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 1

The American Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a car to be admired and desired. The amazing looks and thrilling drive bring about a vehicle that is one of the worlds most wanted.

The performance upgraded yet again

The 5.8 litre V8 under the bonnet is one the fastest engines worldwide. Year upon year the Mustang has raised standards in terms of speed and performance. This time the car can reach a maximum of 650 BHP and hit a top speed of 200 MPH. The car also produces 600 lb/ft or torque. Would anyone need that amount of power? It is almost too much to imagine.

What has been modified this time?

The car has been heavily modified in order for the car to overall produce a greater amount of speed. Elements of the engines which have been modified:

  • An updated camshaft profile,
  • A new cross drilled block and head
  • A new supercharger
  • A carbon fibre driveshaft
  • A new upgraded clutch transmission and axle

Larger supercharger

The supercharger has been made larger. This is for more air to reach the engine so that more Brake Horse Power can be produced.

Six speed transmission

The six speed gear transmission has been cleverly modified to offer shorter shifts. The bearings have been changed so that the great amount of torque is handled well. As expected the driving dynamics of the car have been made a lot better for a more exciting performance.

Performance packages

There are two extra optional packages offered. This includes a Performance Package which comes with two driving modes. The Sport mode delivers an exceptional performance with the car taking corners at speed in an easy fashion with better body control and bringing about a faster response time. Normal mode is based on providing more comfort over uncomfortable road surfaces. The Performance Package comes with a Torsen limited-slip differential.

An additional Track package is also available. Only the most enthusiastic type of driver who requires high speed and thrills would be interested in this type of driving package. As you would expect anyone who goes for this type of package would be testing the engine and car components to its limit. The Track optional package comes with external engine oil cooler, a transmission cooler and a rear differential cooler in order to keep important components stable and undamaged.
