This Snake Bites

2010 Ford Shelby GT 500 Packs a More Powerful Punch


Leave it to Ford's Special Vehicle Team (SVT) to raise the bar in the muscle car segment to new levels.  Ford recently unveiled it's 2010 model of the Shelby GT 500 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this past January.  

The new Shelby GT 500 delivers more power than the previous model year ramping up the horsepower to 540, increasing the torque to 510 foot-pounds, downforce increased, and drag reduced.  The new gearbox enhancements, plus a standard 3.55.1 rear axle ratio mean that the 2010 model will deliver even better acceleration all while providing better fuel economy.

Take one look at this beast and you know it means business.  The aggressive new exterior design features new functional details such as the hood extractor to remove heat from the engine and "Gurney Flap" spoiler to tune rear downforce.  The interior is all-new as well and features world-class materials and craftmanship that create the most unique GT 500 Interior yet.

Memo to GM and Chrysler…don't say we didn't warn you.  This snake bites…and packs the most potent power ever from a factory Mustang.
