Going into the Chicago Auto Show last week we were hoping that Ford would bring out some 2014 model-year Mustangs so that we could see some of the new option packages and colors – Ruby Red and Oxford White – in person. After all, production of the 2014 Mustang is already underway and they should start arriving at dealerships across the country sometime next month. That’s why we were a little disappointed to see a fleet of 2013 Mustangs greet us in the Windy City when we first stepped onto …

We’ve already shown you plenty of images of the new 2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible including both the official press photos as well as pictures from the live debut at the Chicago Auto Show. We’re Mustang-obsessed, though, so we’re bringing you even more images of every detail of the new Shelby rag top.
Like the coupe, the new GT500 Convertible has received styling updates to the front and rear including a wide open grille, double splitter, new taillights and quad exhaust tips. Under the hood is the new 5.8-liter supercharged V8 with …

Yesterday Ford debuted the new 2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible, but in our opinion the real star of the show is this 1993 Mustang SVT Cobra R. Ford brought out the car to celebrate the 20th anniversary of SVT, a fitting tribute since the 1993 SVT Cobra made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show exactly two decades ago.
Although it doesn’t have the horsepower of the modern Shelby (who could have imagined in 1993 that a factory Mustang would have 650 horsepower), the 1993 Mustang SVT Cobra R was capable of …

 

Ford has debuted various packages and colors of the 2013 Mustang over the past few months, but one version we haven’t seen until now is one with the Brembo Brake Package. The option isn’t much different than on the 2011-2012 model years, with front Brembo 14-inch, 4-piston brakes, the same 19-inch wheels, and summer performance tires. Those who prefer automatic transmissions will be glad to know that the Brembo Brake Package will be available on automatic-equipped cars for the first time for 2013. Pricing for the package is set at …

For 2013 Ford has given the Mustang several new features along with the refreshed exterior design. One of those new features is the six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission that allows the driver to choose between fully automatic operation and manual control. Unlike some other transmissions, the SelectShift will not override a driver’s gear selection, allowing truly full control. The shifter also features a button on the side of the shifter and also has a more modern design.
Ford has several Mustangs on display here at the Chicago …

Late last night Ford released official details and photos of the new 2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible, and today they officially revealed the car at the Chicago Auto Show. Like the coupe that made its debut at the L.A Auto Show, the GT500 Convertible has been upgraded with the new supercharged 5.8-liter V8 with 650 horsepower. The convertible doesn’t have the same 200 mph top speed, though, as Ford has limited it to 155 mph. The Shelby drop top’s performance doesn’t disappoint, though, and Ford says that the 2013 convertible is …

The official launch of SVT came during the 1992 Chicago Auto Show with the unveiling of the 1993 SVT Mustang Cobra and SVT F-150 Lightning. Now Ford returns to Chicago to celebrate its past and look to the future with the 2013 Shelby GT500 convertible.
In honor of SVT’s anniversary, a commemorative lighted sill plate will be used in the 2013 Shelby GT500 to celebrate the many years of performance vehicles. The 1993 SVT Mustang Cobra offered a 235-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 engine, which demonstrates …

Back in December it was reported that the 2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible would be making its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Of course, that prediction ended up being wrong, although we still got our fill of Mustangs at the show thanks to Shelby debuting their Anniversary Edition Mustangs and Ford showing off new colors for the 2013 Mustang and the 2013 Boss 302.
Now a new report from LeftLaneNews.com states that the 2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible will actually be making its debut at the Chicago Auto …
