New Ford Shelby GT500 can run 10s at the drag strip bone stock
The new and improved For Shelby GT500 Mustang is here and boy does it pack some serious wallop. 760hp, 0-60 in a reported 3.3 seconds, and apparently a 10.7s 1/4 time. That's epic from an OEM car no matter how you slide it.
But, is it accurate. Apparently yes because a YouTuber called REVan Evan was at the GT500 launch and shot a video that sort of needs to be seen to be believed.
Appart from the cringeworthy YouTube-y-ness of the video, the 'Stang did the 1/4 in 10.61. So a share off 10.5 at a launch event, bone stock.
To put that in perspective, that's Dodge Demon territory with less power and no fancy drag radials (and all it's seats and no race fuel). On that note, it's safe to say that the game has been upped and a new shot fired in the American HP wars.
Next up is Chevy. I wonder what they have in store? CoughZ06C8cough.
