1971 Chevrolet Camaro: Mary Pozzi, Queen of Grip - BIG MUSCLE
For its season opener BIG MUSCLE hangs out with the Queen of Grip herself, Mary Pozzi. We traveled to Northern California to meet up with Mary, husband David and her highly modified LS2 powered 1971 Chevrolet Camaro. We talked racing, car set-up, touched on her SCCA autocross championships as well as her inclusion in Sony's upcoming Gran Turismo 6. Then we took out her stunning prized Camaro for an all day flog in the California canyons.
Modified Ford Mustang Shelby GT640 Golden Snake by Geiger
The modified Ford Mustang Shelby GT640 Golden Snake by Geiger has just been released. The car hides under the hood a V8 5.4l engine with a 2.3l compressor and the Geiger stainless steel sport Exhaust system, all of which along a ECU remap releases 640Hp and 789m of torque.
Ford Mustang GT640 Golden Snake needs only 3.7s to breach the 100km/h marker and has a top speed of 295km/h.
The exterior of the Geiger Golden Snake was also modified. The bonnet is now made out of carbon fiber and has a huge air intake, the front bumper was modified and a carbon fiber lip was mounted. Besides the carbon fiber elements the car is painted in gold.
To complete the tuning a set of matte black Geiger wheels was mounted dressed with Michelin Pilot Sport tires and a brand new H&R suspension system that ensures stability and handling.

Shelby GT 500 und die Carroll Shelby Story - HD - Deutsch
Anlässlich des neuen Shelby GT 500 blicken wir zurück auf das Leben von Carroll Shelby. Beim 2013er Mustang Shelby GT500 legt Ford ordentlich bei der Leistung nach und legt die Messlatte nochmals höher.
Da bleibt für Verfolger nur der Blick auf die Rückleuchten. Im Innenraum gibt es so gut wie keine Veränderungen. Aber unter der Haube schon, denn der 2013er Shelby GT500 dürfte wohl der schärfste Mustang sein, den Ford je gebaut hat.
Ford Mustang Shelby GT640 Golden Snake
Ford Mustang Shelby GT640 Golden Snake, The 5.4 litre V8 has been prescribed a large 2.3 litre compressor as well as a Geiger stainless steel sport Exhaust system, so that the eightpointer - after a mandatory software adaptation - sends now a wailing, whopping 640 PS (series: 548 PS) to the back wheels. The mechanically loaded engine produces 789 Nm on the crankshaft at the highest point of the torque. After picking up strength, the Mustang catapults itself in only 3.7 seconds to 100 km/h and reaches a top speed of 295 km/h.
A novelty in the Mustang history is the material of the engine block. This consists from the model year 2011 (series) namely of aluminium, which significantly reduces the load on the front axle and, thus, gives the Power Coupe a significantly better position on the road.
Equally conducive to the increased efficiency -- even though it might sound baffling at first -- is the carbon engine bonnet. An intake air channel was skilfully integrated into the engine bonnet, so that the airflow will be optimally introduced to the combustion chambers. The front spoiler lip also consists of the typically shimmering carbon fibre, while the remaining body -- nomen est omen -- was painted in dead gold, which lights up fascinatingly especially when the sun is low in the sky. This is contrasted by the matt black Geiger rims with ring accentuation in the colour of the vehicle, which are used in the sizes 8.5x20 inch front and 10x20 inch rear. These have been fitted with super Michelin Pilot sports tyres with the dimensions 255/35ZR20 and 285/30ZR20. An adjustable sports chassis from H&R provides for optimal ground grip of the handy tyres. In addition, the Mustang was equipped with a high-quality sound system with EU navigation.
2013 Ford Shelby GT500 (SH)
2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Debuts As Most Powerful Production V8 in the World with 650 horsepower, Top Speed of 200+ MPH
•New Ford Shelby GT500 is powered by an aluminum 5.8-liter supercharged V8 producing 650 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful production V8 engine in the world
•Nearly every vehicle system has been optimized including powertrain, brakes, gearing and suspension
•New Shelby GT500 sets a performance-driven design standard with new downforce- generating front grilles, aggressive splitter, new quad Exhaust system and two new forged-aluminum wheels
•Also new for 2013 is an optional Performance Package with SVT-designed Bilstein electronic adjustable dampers and a Torsen limited-slip differential. The offering can be coupled with a track package for all-out racetrack performance
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2011 -- The ultimate Ford Mustang -- Shelby GT500 -- raises the bar high on performance with the introduction of the new 2013 model that goes on sale next year delivering 650 horsepower and a top speed of more than 200 mph.
"SVT keeps the Shelby GT500 on the cutting edge of technology and takes muscle car performance to new heights," said Jost Capito, director of Global Performance Vehicles and Motorsport Business Development. "We encapsulated every aspect of performance in this car -- whether it's 0-60, top speed, racetrack or quarter-mile times. Beyond that, the daily driver also will find this car perfectly fits his or her needs."
The 5.8-liter V8 aluminum-block engine produces 650 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful production V8 in the world. The 3,850-pound car also stays exempt from the gas-guzzler tax.
Nearly every part of the powertrain has been optimized for producing the additional horsepower, including a new Supercharger, new cross-drilled block and heads, updated camshaft profiles, a new carbon fiber driveshaft and upgraded clutch, transmission and axle.
A larger, more-efficient Supercharger flowing more air through the engine is key to helping produce the massive 650 horsepower. The new TVS series 2300 creates 2.3 liters of displacement and is a unique design to the 5.8-liter engine.
The entire cooling system has been significantly updated on the new 5.8-liter engine. It now includes a larger cooling fan, fan shroud with high-speed pressure-relief doors, a more efficient charge air cooler, a higher-flow Intercooler pump and an Intercooler heat exchanger with volume increased 36 percent.
Nearly every gear on the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 was revised to manage the torque and use more of the power in a way that makes it more driver-friendly. Engineers considered more than 35 gearing combinations, finally deciding on one that delivers less torque all the way through the wheels to the ground and still enables the car to achieve fuel economy targets.
A key piece of the driveline, the six-speed manual transmission, offers upgraded gears, bearings and housing so it can properly manage the torque. The final drive ratio is now 3.31:1 for optimized overall vehicle gearing to complement the massive torque. Every gear besides fourth was optimized for competing performance metrics. The clutch has increased torque and rpm capacity and uses a dual-disc design.
"It might just seem like we're putting a bigger engine into the car. But it's been a balanced approach through and through," said Jamal Hameedi, SVT chief engineer. "We've completely redone the car to be even more sophisticated in terms of handling and control than the prior model."
Other keys for improved traction management include:
•Torsen limited-slip differential:When customers order the optional Performance Package, they will get a Torsen limited-slip differential that helps the rear suspension deliver maximum torque and traction better and longer under track conditions
•Launch control: A new launch control system lets drivers set the desired launch rpm depending on tire temperature, street surface or other conditions. Unique to SVT's launch control is that it is integrated with both the engine control and traction control
•Brembo braking system: A new Brembo brake system offers drivers enhanced stopping power to help keep their car under control, both on the road and the track. New six-piston calipers in front along with larger front and rear rotors help improve brake fade. New brake pads that are more aggressive also help the car achieve high deceleration and further robustness for more driver confidence
Significant aerodynamic work was done on the new Shelby GT500 to ensure the car has proper downforce for optimum performance at all speeds. Engineers were able to determine how to harness the air that was moving around and through the car to improve the cooling system, maximize downforce and minimize drag.
