HAHA, got me.

Or you could have just modded your car and had 500hp. Would have been better then going DUMB-mestic!

It may not be the fastest in the end, but with a GT500 do you really care? You probably just left thick, black, tire marks from one stoplight to the next.

The Shelby 1000 just debuted and when asked about the gas mileage, Carol Shelby responded with "we don't give a shit", a motto by which all his cars live

A video I took at the Shelby factory here in Vegas. The guy there said it was headed to Suadi Arabia and was expecting to put down 1000hp to the wheels. This was a tuning session. Perfect AF ratios and was INSANE. It was spinning tires on the rollers till they straped it down harder.

Ha I was excited to see a 550hp N54. The mustangs are not bad cars, the newer ones handle so much better than the previous ones. The torque on the new 5.0 makes my M3 feel weak and that's 100hp+ down to the shelby. Enjoy the new car.
