2013 Ford Shelby GT500: 200 MPH at Nardo

2013 Ford Shelby GT500: 200 MPH at Nardo

Ford wants us all to be aware of how fierce the 2013 Shelby GT500 is and the company has recently made a new effort to demonstrate this, releasing a video that shows the car doing 200 mph (322 km/h) at the Nardo Test Track in Italy.

The company stressed the fact that it’s not just important for a supercar to be able to hit 200 mph, but also to be stable at this kind of speeds, bragging that the extreme ‘Stang is very good at this game. Unfortunately, the clip doesn’t actually show us too much, and while we trust the Blue Oval, we woul’ve loved to receive some footage that backs all that up.

We’ll remind you that the 2013 Shelby GT500 is powered by a 5.8-liter supercharged V8 unit that produces 671 hp and 631 lb-ft (855 Nm), while returning an 15 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway (EPA figures).
