    Mustang Shelby 1000 2012

    For those who are not satisfied with the 650 hp 813Nm Shelby GT500 there now is a solution to their problems.
    Shelby has a kit that will raise the hp to 1100.
    For $149,995,- and you have to bring your own Shelby GT500.
    For that you get a handbuild reinforced V8, upgraded brakes, drivetrain and suspension.
    As a streetversion this will give you 950hp.
    There will also be a circuit version, the Shelby 1000 S/C " off road" which, with some racegas, will produce 1100 hp
    This car will be revealed at the New York Autoshow.
    You can order the upgrade from april 5.

    Pushed the price too far, not even close to worth it even with Shelby's name attached.

    Yeah i had some sticker shock too. I think simply "under 100k" would be more in keeping with the affordable performance mission of the Mustang. Still, it looks formidable and proves a point Ford is still in the game for keeps, and i'm sure there'll be ample deep-pocketed boomers out there willing to pony up so to speak.

    I was die-hard Mopar back in the day and definitely got the impulse to drop my life savings on the new Hemi Challenger on sight, as that was my dreamcar back then (or Hemi Cuda), so i can imagine the effect this car will have on the old Cobra remnant.

    All that power and it still has the same, skinny rear wheels. Hit the throttle at anything under 100mph and you're just going to light the tires up. They should have shortended the rear axle and tubbed it out a little bit to fit some wider tires out back.

    Question, can you tub just about anything? Wondering why BMW guys don't do this. Instead they do wider fenders instead of a mini-tub.

    My friends used to do this with their dragsters all the time, and i've wondered from the start whether it would be possible on an M3 and how it would affect the handling (would it be as flickable?) but i think it would balance out the torque of, say, the twinscrew, just about right. It also puts more rubber under the car rather than outside it, for even more traction. Given enough time, like when i go Stage 2, we might hash this out in earnest on the thread. It's more stealth too.

    With the live axle, absolutely. And with 1000+ horses (and probably nearly as much torque), moving to the Ford 9" rear would be a plus as well. However, I've never seen it done with an independent rear suspension (IRS), but I think it should be possible to some degree.
