We’ve got some real numbers for the all new 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 powered by a 5.8L Supercharged V8 rated a 662 horsepower. 5.0 Mustang and Super Fords put one on a DynoJet where it put down 609 horsepower and 609 ft-lbs of torque at the rear wheels. There were also some drag strip runs done where the new GT500 was running 11.6 @ 125 MPH, which is much quicker and faster than any of it’s nearest competitors, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Dodge Challenger SRT8 492. Take a look at the dyno graph and video below. Stock 2013 Ford Read More
MotorTrend does a heads up drag race between a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport vs a Lamborghini Aventador on an airstrip. While the Aventador put up a good fight running 10.6 @ 133 MPH, it was no match for the Veyron, the current king of all super cars. The Veyron ended up about 5 cars ahead at the end of the 1/4 mile and it would have kept pulling away up to it’s top speed of 253 MPH. They also ran the Lexus LFA and McLaren MP4-12C, but those both got beaten pretty badly by the Aventador.

The Ford GT was making 630 horsepower while the Dodge Viper was running 600 horsepower at the wheels. Reaction times and launches were pretty close with the Ford GT edging out the Viper with an 11.4 vs 11.6. Weather was pretty bad with a DA of over 2,000 so we expect both cars to perform much better with decent weather Read More
