2013 GT 500, Most Powerful Mustang to Date
Got my Feb. 2012 Muscle Mustang mag yesterday and Evan Smith has assisted Ford with Developmental work on the new 5.8 liter 2013 GT 500 Shelby. Cranks out 650 HP and 600 Ft.#'s of torque. The bigger displacement is aided by a larger 2.3 Liter TVS supercharger with 4 lobe design with 160 degree twist. Stock it pumps out 15#'s of boost. Also comes with bigger inter-cooler and 58.4# injectors.
The really cool new technology is that it comes with Launch Control and Traction Control and a two step stock! It offers tunable launch RPM for your track conditions. They predict stock out of the box times of 11.60 at over 120 MPH. That's with stock tires and the stock gearing which is 3.31:1 in a revised 8.8 with a finned cooling cover. The 3.31:1 final drive will allow it to go 200 MPH. With 4.10:1 and sticky tires they predict 10's.
