There's really no better way to see, or be seen, than in a rare American muscle car, and this one-of-a-kind Mustang is sure to turn heads, drop jaws and eat most 'performance' cars for lunch!
Wearing a sinister coat of traditional Ford Black paint under a spectacular clearcoat shine, this spotless 2012 Mustang has been in the care of two meticulous owners since new and presents excellent in every way. All the car's modifications, aside from larger rear brakes, were performed by Shelby's shop in Sin City, Nevada; and they add up to what is essentially a full Super Snake conversion minus Shelby's beefier Supercharger.
The GT500's supercharged 5.4 liter V8 is now 100 pounds lighter than its LESS powerful predecessor. And thanks to a mild tweak from the speed hungry folks at Shelby, this car's all-aluminum mill sends an astonishing 558 horsepower and 563 lb./ft. of torque to its 20 inch wheels. The revolutionary engine's thrust is provided by a familiar Eaton Supercharger that's been augmented with a Shelby cold air intake, a smaller Shelby 2.60 pulley and a larger two-row Intercooler. A carbon fiber-shrouded Shelby radiator combines with a Shelby heat exchanger and a blue Shelby billet, anodized fuel rail kit to complement white hot combustion with ice cold coolant. And since Shelby engineers knew most of this Mustang's admirers would want to check it out both on the track and in the pits, they dressed its engine compartment up with a number of cool aesthetics including Shelby coolant tanks, a Shelby shock tower plaque, a Shelby billet battery tie down, and a full set of Shelby billet fluid caps and dip sticks.
As most performance car fans already know, this Mustang's SVT-tuned suspension is nothing short of excellent; but with a few of Shelby's aftermarket bolt-ons, it sticks to the corners like the high speed luge winner at the 2010 Winter Olympics. The firm's suspensions upgrades began with a Shelby Performance Handling Package that straightens the curves, progressed to Shelby Camber and Caster plates that fine tune the ride, and ended with a billet watts link set up that keeps the power to the ground. Behind the smooth engine, a slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission sends power to tall 3.71 gears and a factory limited slip differential via a Shelby one piece aluminum driveshaft. At the corners of the car, stops are provided by a Shelby Wilwood front and aftermarket rear disc brake system that makes good use of black, "Shelby" branded calipers, Shelby brake ducts, a full set of braided steel lines, and a combination of drilled and slotted rotors. Turns come courtesy of Ford's super-efficient EPAS electronic steering system. Exhaust flows through fresh Borla pipes to bright, Shelby-branded stainless tips. Naturally, Ford's standard ABS and Advance Trac stability and traction control systems are all present and accounted for. And all this first class speed and agility rides on a set of massive 20 inch Shelby Super Snake wheels which spin sticky 255/35 front and 275/35 rear Pirelli P Zero radials around a gray powder coat finish.
Inside this Ford, highly bolstered Recaro sport seats, which feature Shelby's traditional Cobra logos, fit like a glove; and a leather wrapped tilt steering wheel with convenient thumb buttons sports a snake on its hub. The instrument panel is a familiar Mustang layout which features a programmable "SVT" shift light inside a large, graphite-faced tachometer and great looking metal trim. Below that great looking trim, a familiar Shaker stereo combines with Sirius Satellite radio, touch screen navigation and Ford's revolutionary SYNC system to become a one-stop shop for all your electronic needs. Between those seats a slick black-topped and white-stitched shifter is framed by an impressive, aluminum-clad console. And naturally, all the luxuries you'd expect in a high dollar modern car are ready and waiting including: cruise control, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, power seats, a power trunk, and remote keyless entry with a built in theft deterrent system.
If you're looking for a no holds barred muscle car that's every bit as svelte as it is rowdy and desirable as it is menacing, this GT500 is your ticket! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome Shelby!

2013 Chevy Equinox v Ford Explorer v Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Road Mashup AWD Tech Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Chevrolet Equinox and the Ford Explorer and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Overland don't have a lot in common. However all three of these vehicle have a very different approach to powering all four wheels, in other words, they all have one form or another of all-wheel-drive and terrain management technology. We thought it would be interesting, informative and fun to try these three very different AWD vehicles off-road in a real world test to see which one can best handle our Colorado Mountain off-road terrain. In this battle of 4X4 people haulers we take all three vehicles up our standard rugged Colorado trail to see which one can make it all the way to the top. Check out another fun and real world TFLcar Mashup test as we get wet, muddy and rocky in this off-road AWD technology comparison and review.
13 second Saleen Supercharged Ford Sport Trac XLT 4x4
This video is of my 2008 Ford Sport Trac XLT 4x4 V8 with Brenspeed installed Saleen Series VI.5 Supercharger. The 1/4 mile run was at Lebanon Valley Dragway on 7/27/11 and an ET of firstname.lastname@example.org mph.
Then on 10/8/11 I had my best 1/4 mile run at LVD with an ET of email@example.com mph! Not too bad for a 4560 lb. truck with driver.
