2012 Shelby GT500

It’s got more power then a Corvette ZR1, more torque then a Ferrari 458 Italia and a top speed of over 200 mph. This is not some super exotic ladies and gentlemen, but the new 2012 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500. Let’s look at the numbers for a moment shall we; 650 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, IN A MUSTANG! Now normally I’d be all gung-ho over these kind of numbers, but my question is, how the hell is Ford going to get all this power down through a solid live axle? I mean in a straight line this thing should be downright vicious, but throw in some bumpy back road twisty’s and you’re going to have one helluva time on your hands. Granted, you can order the Track Package which adds a rear differential and transmission coolers as well as an external engine oil cooler, but still… 650 hp? That’s just crazy talk.
