Default "Suck on my 600+HP ZL-1" - 2013 Shelby GT500


nice bitch slap for Chevy, only one month after announcing their ZL-1.

teeheehee im giddy to see the HP wars are still strong

If it isn’t limited to 155 mph, as the current car is, the 2013 GT500 should be capable of topping 190 mph.
amazing what level of performance you can buy for ~$60,000 (not counting dealership price jacks)
Car: 1986 Mustang GT Hatchback || 5.0L H.O. || Borg-Warner T5 || 150,000 Miles || 26.5mpg

Mods: Bfg Traction T/As || Front sway bar || K&N/silencer removed || Hood pins

Times: faster then a speeding Prius

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

190 is fast. Whether it's a Corvette or the future gt500, that's fin fast.

I said it a lot when there were all those spy shots of them testing with a current gt500. The competition should only be used as a benchmark not the goal. The ZL1 will smoke the 2011 shelby, but who says its going to stay the same...and now this.

It is definitely an exciting time for muscle cars.

What won’t change is the basic rear-suspension design. That’s right: This most insanely powerful of Mustangs will keep its live axle. It’ll just be a little, er, livelier.
Meh not interested, any word on the redesign? What was it, for 2014? Hopefully Ford does something about the archaic suspension and weight, if the news is good I'll make sure to return to the pony car ranks, if not imports will have to suffice.
