Post Watch this 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 pull a 9-second quarter mile

Filed under: Motorsports, Coupe, Performance, Videos, Ford


The 2013 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 is an impressive piece of hardware right out of the box. It's a package capable of pulling 11-second quarter mile passes one minute and lapping your favorite road course with genuine fury the next thanks to its impressive suspension tuning and heady 662-horsepower. But how much quicker can its supercharged V8 get with a little tweaking? The guys from Lethal Performance recently set out to find the answer. The team isn't saying exactly what they've done to the king Pony, though we can see a set of dragstrip-friendly "bigs n' littles" have found their way into the wheel wells.

As a result, the 3,852-pound two-door bolted down the drag strip in just 9.77 seconds. Judging by the "thank you" list in the video's credits, this GT500 may even be rocking a shot of nitrous, though we can't say for certain. Check out the full clip for yourself below.Continue reading Watch this 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 pull a 9-second quarter mile

Unbelievable...

I remember when a FACTORY MUSCLE CAR off the showroom floor that would pull low fourteens/high thirteens in street form was considered fast...

Astounding!

It was amazing that off the line it just dug in and went. I guess it is that new "Traction-Lok".

I graduated HS in '65. A buddy of mine that graduated in '64 went to work at Lordstown GM plant and bought a 65 Hi-Po Mustang. He would beat the crap out of it all week and go to the strip and turn mid to high 13's. Had another buddy with one of the factory racers with the aluminum front end and pretty well gutted Dodge Hemi's that was fast but that Mustang would put you back in the seat like no car I have ever driven.

What a rush that Shelby must be!
