2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was showcased in 2011 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, turning a lot of heads. The American car maker, according to sources, put in a lot of effort to develop the 5.8-litre V8 powertrain for this model. Not only were output levels enhanced, work was done to provide better cooling by changing camshaft profiles and adding piston squirters. The most notable thing about the engine is the cooling system, which is designed to minimise the heat levels. Ford, in addition, paid a lot of attention to the kind of power levels that were going to be generated, thereby efficiently designing all equipment to support the engine. Ford's master class has enabled it to deliver a claimed output of around 662 bhp, which is considered to be unbelievable by many. Along with this, the car has the ability to reach maximum torque of around 855 Nm, another stunning statistics.

However, the prowess and expertise of this engine goes beyond statistics as it has outclassed many top class models. The list of cars it beats includes icons like Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, a superb feat. This is not all as 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, according to reports and tests, has the ability to clock a high speed of around 202 mph, which converts to around 325 kmph. Many automobile experts and famous magazines have tested this vehicle in order to see if the claims made by Ford are true or not. And to say the least, this model has not disappointed anyone, delivering on all accounts. The company, on its part, is really proud of this masterpiece, which has truly taken the legacy of Mustang Shelby notches higher.
