Shelby-1000-NYIAS (2)

Last year Shelby made a huge splash at the New York Auto Show, introducing its most powerful Mustang yet, the Shelby 1000. Fast forward one year and the company is back again in the Big Apple, this time with an updated version of the car using the 2013 Shelby GT500 as a base. With the larger displacement 5.8-liter engine, the new 1000 packs even more of a punch and produces up to 1,200 horsepower on pump gas in S/C trim.

As expected, Shelby has modified nearly all of the mechanicals of the GT500 to handle the extra horsepower, from the drivetrain to the suspension to the brakes. The internals of the 5.8-liter V8 have been heavily fortified with upgraded pistons and connecting rods, and new camshafts and ported cylinder heads help keep the air flowing from the Whipple 4.0-liter supercharger. Other standard features include Borla headers, a performance cooling package, aluminum driveshaft, billet aluminum watts-link and more.

Like the 2012 model, the 2013 Shelby 1000 will be produced in limited numbers - just 100 are scheduled for production. Pricing starts at $154,995, not including the base GT500.

Ruben Zayas (Thu, 28 Mar 2013 12:46:39 -0700): Lenny and Joe, only 154,995, LET'S GET ONE.
Dave Lightner (Thu, 28 Mar 2013 12:58:33 -0700): WOW!
Gregory Victor Valentine (Mon, 01 Apr 2013 15:42:44 -0700): How's the mileage?
Chris Catalano (Wed, 10 Apr 2013 08:41:02 -0700): I'm in! Those poor Ferrari and Lambo guys aren't going to know what hit em! :-)
Daniel Reardon (Wed, 10 Apr 2013 12:40:28 -0700): Gorgeous car with an unbelievable amount of power!
David Taylor (Wed, 10 Apr 2013 23:07:44 -0700): You thinking of trading in yours?
Michael Fournier (Thu, 11 Apr 2013 07:51:53 -0700): Your Joking right? But actually the base 5.4L Shelby GT500 in 2013 had more HP then the 2010-2012s and JUST barely avoided the gas guzzler tax (the previous models with the 5 speed had a gas guzzler tax) As for the S/C with 1200HP with a 5.8L V8 and a 4liter super charger lets just say with the rather small 12 gal tank your going to need to plan any long trips to include a bit more fuel stops then your friend's civic.
Daniel Reardon (Thu, 11 Apr 2013 14:59:25 -0700): I would be lying if I said I haven't considered it.
Joe Montagno (Fri, 12 Apr 2013 03:53:48 -0700): Love it Kiss off Camaro and Challenger.
Mario Ruggier (Fri, 12 Apr 2013 04:57:27 -0700): Mileage should NOT even enter your mind with this baby... I'm at 440 HP and I have a problem unleashing the power it puts out...city driving in stop and go traffic is not exactly stellar, but is very impressive at highway driving 7 liters per 100 KM...what's not to like! Civics & Mustangs in the same sentence, now that's funny LOL!
Gregory Victor Valentine (Fri, 12 Apr 2013 08:21:56 -0700): Yes, I was joking. I'm the proud owner of a 2012 V6 premium and the balance between muscle and mileage was what enticed me to purchase a Mustang. Plus my son loves them and he suggested the V6 for the balance of the two. But, in the future, I may consider an upgrade to the 8's. Ford engineering keeps it interesting. Averaging 32 -34 mpg highway and 26-30 rural.
Hansley Louis Jonathan Sournoise (Thu, 21 Nov 2013 01:31:28 -0800): amazing
