One gets the impression that everyone is trying to go after Bugatti Veryon-esque performance. Or at least tickle the magic 200 number. This will only push Chevy to make the next gen C7 Corvette (or its Z06 variant) a 225mph flyer with Indy car performance. Which means our beloved Cobras will continue to be bricks above 110. But, damn, will we look and sound great getting there! LOL

They had a pretty nice write up about this Mustang yesterday along with pictures and Shelby has made some cosmetic changes as well as the engine. No mention of price, but one person who posted said he heard it would start at around $90K. That is just hear say so don't put to much faith in it. Just what we need, 200 MPH cars with a speed limit of 70 at most and the highways are so bad it tears the cars up to drive 70 in a lot of places. I don't know if they will still let people go out in the China Lake area and run their cars or not as they are building that areas up. That used to be where they did the land speed record runs before the Salt Flats.

I'm sure the price will be enough to choke a horse though.:crazy In the past few years, American car manufacturers have seen a rebirth of sorts for some of their vintage vehicles, resuscitating classic cars with new features. They've also began an arms race for horsepower, packing the modern street rods with dizzying amounts of power. Chevrolet is launching a 580-horsepower Camaro, and Ford recently disclosed information on the 2013 Shelby GT Mustang. The brand new Shelby GT will produce 650 horsepower and top 200 miles per hour. I've read the article here: Horsepower arms race is on with 2013 Ford Shelby GT Mustang (http://www.cardealexpert.com/news-information/auto-news/2013-ford-shelby-gt-mustang/).Well,the technology offered in its class is far superior.Great job Ford!:cool:

I was reading this the other day in a magazine,

''Impressive, but the big news for 2012 lies with an optional package that adds a Kenne Bell supercharger, and pushes that figure to a whopping 800 ponies. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that figure is achieved while running regular pump-grade gasoline, and still meets emissions standards in all 50 states. However, any semblance of a powertrain warranty goes out the window with this option, as Shelby explicitly states on its Web site.

Shelby American officials are quick to tout the 2012 GT500 Super Snake as the only 800-horsepower supercar that’s priced under $100,000. Stay away from additional options, and that’s correct: the Super Snake package tacks on $34,245 onto a stock GT500, which brings the total price to $82,294. Adding the 800-horsepower package bumps that price up by $1500; tick every single option box, and the total price can creep up towards $97,000.
