Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake - 750 Horsepower ROAD TEST
I was lucky enough to get the keys to this awesome car and wanted to share
my quick blast up this canyon road with any fellow gear heads. I'm just
your average car lover that happened upon this great opportunity to wheel
one of the fastest production Mustangs ever made! Chevy, Mopar or
Ford guys should appreciate this car...750 horsepower in a production
street car is flat-out cool. Unfortunately my lack of skills don't do this
car justice on the road...but this video will give you a taste of the
immense power, ferocious sounds and sexy yet menacing looks of this
American muscle car.
Check out the other videos on my you tube channel... there are a few more
road test videos with some great cars and build videos of my personal
project vehicle, a 1970 Ford Maverick with a Dodge Viper V10 engine stuffed

Brute Force: Ford Shelby GT500 v Hennessey Camaro
FOR FULL COMPARISON @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Hennessey CamaroDyno Test Video:
Hennessey Camaro SS
These are the heavy hitters. The big dogs. They're not playmakers or
finesse artists and they don't dish out assists. If the 2010 Ford Shelby
GT500 is Dick Butkus snuffing out a Jim Brown thrust up the middle, then
the 2010 Hennessey Performance Engineering Chevy Camaro SS HPE550 is Lawrence
Taylor with radar lock on Joe Theismann's right leg. And it's not just that
they're powerful and merciless, but intentionally provocative and
intimidating, too. On looks alone, either of these cars is enough to make
the drivers of other machines cower like a three-legged Labradoodle.
They are, of course, muscle cars in the rawest, most vicious sense of the
term. And they're quicker, faster,
meaner and flat nastier than anything built back when Ol' Shel and Don
Yenko were just guys. And not by a little bit either.
But which is the better beast? To find out, we drove these two
all-Americans on the street, at our test track and on the Dynojet chassis Dyno at MD Automotive in
Westminster, California. Then we did some big smoky burnouts just to piss
off the Sierra Club. By the time we were through, Greenpeace had threatened
to blockade the Inside Line garage and the Obama administration was
seriously considering a unilateral deployment of the fun police. Didn't
matter. By then the tires were shot and we had our winner.

Ford Shelby GT500 v Hennessey Camaro:
Hennessey HPE550 Supercharged Chevy Camaro SS:
We're looking at the 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and 2008 Chevrolet Corvette
Z06, but we're imagining a '68 Shelby GT500KR staging next to a Corvette
with one of the 427-cubic-inch V8s on the Connecting Highway in Queens, New
York, probably sometime during the Nixon administration. We don't know how
the cars are tuned or which driver has the better hole-shot technique, but
we're calling our street race in favor of the Vette.
You see, there's no historical basis for a close Corvette-Mustang rivalry. A Corvette of any
year is a little too fast and smart to be street racing ratty muscle cars.
It's a real sports car, the kind of car that's still fun when you start
going around corners.
But maybe it's a different story with this 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and
2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Each of these rear-wheel-drive coupes has a V8
rated for more than 500 horsepower at the flywheel.
And with the release of the limited-edition 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR, Ford
has moved in on Chevrolet's price territory. The GT500KR leaves the Ford
factory as a $46,730 GT500 coupe and is shipped as a rolling chassis to
Carroll Shelby's facility near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada. By
the time the KR cruises out of Shelby's shop, it's an $82,395 Mustang.
As such, the King-of-the-Road Mustang must now contend with this
$76,920 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. And though the Z06 is a few horsepower shy of the
upcoming ZR1, it's not an easy mark. The GT500KR will have to play like a
sports car just to keep up.
Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 vs. Shelby GT350
Video of our muscle car showdown between the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
and the 2012 Shelby GT350. Only 1492 Challengers like this one will be
built, and Shelby has a cap of 2200, with only 500. Read the Dodge
Challenger SRT8 392 vs. Shelby GT350 photos and comparison test here:
Shelby Conquers Dyno: 2010 Shelby GT500
ALL THE SHELBY STATS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Do something enough times and patterns become apparent. Dyno testing is no exception.
For example, supercharged cars usually produce their best Dyno result within the first few
pulls. Heat soak tends to quickly get the best of the Intercooler circuit and erode the
engine's output. Once this happens, we call it quits and review the data to
select the run that represents the car's stabilized output.
Not so with the 2010 Shelby GT500. With each pull on MD Automotive's Dynojet chassis Dyno in Westminster, CA, we
witnessed the power from the supercharged 5.4-liter V8 creep up further and
further. Five, six runs in and the power was still climbing.
Finally, upon the seventh run, the output of our color-coordinating GT500
stabilized. And we saw that it was good.
This new Shelby appears to have the thermal capacity of an industrial meat
locker. That, and Gary and Jeff deserve a high-five for their efforts.

chart, video and the lowdown on Gary and Jeff.

1967 GT500 Eleanor: Re-imagining a Classic - /BIG MUSCLE
Carroll Shelby created it, "Gone in 60 Seconds" re-imagined it, and
audiences around the world made it famous. The 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor is
one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of
a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance
of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love
with this amazing machine. BIG MUSCLE received so many requests for this
car that we just had to go out and find one. So now sit back, click play
and enjoy... and don't bust my chops in regards to my glasses - it was
really sunny that day - M. Musto
