We can’t applaud Ford enough for what they’ve done with the 2013 Shelby GT500. SVT engineers did an incredible job developing the new engine, packing 662 horsepower and 631 lb-ft torque into the new 5.8L supercharged V8. With stats like 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of more than 200 mph, the new Shelby is undoubtedly the most fastest and best performing Mustang to ever come from Ford. But one of the aspects of the previous generation GT500 that we appreciated was the ability to easily add …

A couple years ago the Missouri-based company released their 1969 Mustang Fastback conversion, mixing the underpinnings and drivetrain of the current S197 Mustang with the styling of the legendary Boss 302. Now they have followed that up with their newest offering, the 1969 Shelby GT500CS Convertible. The new model goes the same route as Retrobuilt’s previous cars, except this time the exterior is based on the …

Ford has already backed up their claim that they 2013 Shelby GT500 can surpass the 200 mph mark by reaching 202 mph during pre-production testing at the Nardo Ring in Italy last summer. They guys over at Motor Trend wanted to see the high performance of the 2013 GT500 for themselves, though, and decided to do their own top speed test in a quest for the double century mark. Enlisting the help of professional driver Randy Pobst, the Motor Trend crew drove the new Shelby out to the five mile …

It’s easy to look at a car like the 2013 Shelby GT500 and forget that it’s not just built by a company but by dozens of hard working people who have spent months ensuring that the finished product is as good as it can possibly be.

The folks over at Ford’s Special Vehicle Team aren’t just your ordinary collection of engineers. Many have …
