Ford has been cranking out new videos showing us the capabilities of the new 2013 Shelby GT500! They've come close to hitting 200 MPH, tested it out on skid pads, 0-60 mph, brake testing, etc. Now, it was finally time to get this thing out in it's natural habitat... 

What better place then Nurburgring race track in Germany? The new supercharged 5.8L 2013 Shelby GT500 hit the track hard, so you'll have to watch the video and see the in-car footage of the thrill ride!

John F Walsh (Sun, 24 Jun 2012 16:36:08 -0700): Seriously...as a GT owner...I would love to see it...Doesn't matter if its not the fastest..as a fan of Mustang release the unedited video!
Michael Fournier (Wed, 11 Jul 2012 08:25:05 -0700): OK I like it but the engine HP was never Really the issue Mustangs have always had plenty of HP or where capable to making it with bolt ons. (or more) Hopefully Ford will learn a bit about the other limitation of the platform from the Size of the rear tires (really compared to anything out there with this much HP at the rear wheels the Shelby's rear Tires are too SMALL) And also the chassis needs a lot of help. (hence the reason for the strong after market suspensions offerings for Mustangs from just better shocks and struts to complete racing suspensions like Griggs). I know this is mostly Marketing for the 2013GT500 I hope the team is learning on what to do better for 2015 without loosing what we all already love about the Current Stang.
