The 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 features an engine that supplies 650 horsepower, making it the most powerful production V8 in the world. Can you imagine the trouble that you could get into driving a car capable of 200 mph?
The GT500 added 100 ponies for the 2013 model year. The supercharged 5.8L V8 not only offers the 650 hp mentioned earlier, but also provides 600 lb.ft of torque. With performance like that, you may need to have a bail bondsman on speed dial.
Granted, that is not the kind of power that everyone wants to have under the hood. Ford is offering the Mustang with a V6 and 305 hp output. The standard 5L V8 featured in the GT model adds8 hp for 2013 and delivers 420 ponies. There's also an upgrade to the brakes, cooling, and suspension.
American car companies are supplying plenty of underpowered fuel sippers to appease the masses, but the new engines being produced for Mustang, Camaro, and Corvette prove that muscle cars will never die. Thankfully!
