It’s fast, it’s beautiful AND it’s STREET LEGAL.

There is a lot of talk recently about the 2013 Shelby GT500.  This car puts out a ridiculous 650 horsepower and 631 foot pounds of torque.  It’s fast, it’s beautiful AND it’s STREET LEGAL.

Mustang, Ford

Fast.  The force behind the speed is the 5.8L V8 Supercharged engine built here in North America.  In fact, it is the most powerful engine ever built in North America.  Almost every part of the power train has been tweaked to help maximize horsepower and to convert that horsepower to speed.  Built with an all aluminum block, a new supercharger, upgraded cooling system, redesigned connecting rods, higher cooling fan capacity and much more…  To help the driver harness all of this power and translate it to sheer speed, Ford developed Launch Control.   Launch control combines brake and engine management to help keep the tires from slipping.  The unique part of Ford’s system is that the driver can adjust engine speed settings to suit their driving style.  Plus they are in control of other settings to help further define their preferences.  All of these things (and more) packaged in the restyled exterior help Shelby GT500 achieve speeds in excess of 200 MPH.

Beautiful.  Now don’t think for one second that just because the car is fast that you need to drive around town with a paper bag over your head so people don’t recognize you, because the car is ugly.  This car is GORGEOUS!  7 different colors, three stripe options, window louvers, side scoops, two wheel choices and more that you can add or take off to suit your taste.

The Recaro seats are a must, in our opinion, if you are going to add the Track package.  2013 brings some modern touches to the Mustang look.  HID headlamps with LED lighting are book ends for the updated billet grille which looks great above the thinner, neater lower air dams.   The rear deck is updated with LED lamps that have a dark, almost tinted look to them.  I swear, the Mustang looks meaner and tougher than it ever has!

Street legal.  The question is can something this mean looking and fast really be street legal?  YOU BET IT CAN – and it is!  This car will turn heads with its looks and its roar.  It is proof positive that Mustang’s do lead the pack of muscle cars.  In the 1970’s many drag racers were looking for a car like this, something that could run a ¼ mile in 10 – 12 seconds. Now you can get it right off the showroom floor and take it to MIR and post those times…or quicker!

There will be a limited supply of the Shelby GT500 here at Waldorf Ford, in Southern Maryland and nationally.  Don’t let that stop you from coming in to see what we have.  If we don’t have one available, we might just have another Mustang that will fill that need for speed for you.

Other modifications include a custom fiberglass full tilt front end, a Shelby rear drag wing, eight-point roll cage, six-piston front brakes, rear seat delete, coilover springs, custom Bogart wheels, and much more. Did we mention it’s STREET LEGAL? Pricing comes in at a stout $99,995 to upgrade a currently titled car or $149,995 for a complete car. Production will be limited to just 100 examples. More details on the car and the history between Shelby and Prudhomme can be found in the press release after the jump.UPDATE: Video of unveiling added after the jump.
