    2007 Ford Shelby GT500 officially rated at 500 hp


    Final certification testing of the Shelby GT500’s 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 shows it will produce 500 horsepower and
    480 lb.-ft. of torque — 25 more horsepower than original estimates. The 500 hp rating was obtained using the
    Society of Automotive Engineer’s latest standard and was witnessed by an objective third party. The right to purchase
    the first 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 was auctioned for $600,000, with the proceeds benefiting the Carroll Shelby Children’s
    Foundation. The 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 goes on sale this summer.

    After the overstated HP issue Ford had on the Cobra years ago, it isn't surprising that the GT500 is putting out more power than originally announced.

    Now if the dealers would resist fucking people with mark ups. :rolleyes:

    Its funny how big a deal performance is these days as the cost of gas continues to rise. I'm not complaining though, I like fast cars! :)

    That's because you can get ~25mpg in a 505hp Z06. :bigthumb: It's a great time to be a car enthusiast!

    The Shelby GT500 will go on sale this summer with more horsepower than any previous factory-built Mustang

    DEARBORN, Mich., May 2, 2006: - The most powerful factory-built Mustang ever just got even more potent. Final certification testing of the Shelby GT500’s 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 shows it will produce 500 horsepower and 480 lb.-ft. of torque – 25 more horsepower than preliminary estimates.

    “With 500 hp and the Shelby name, this car is an instant legend," said Hau Thai-Tang, director, Advanced Product Creation & SVT programs. "This is the most powerful, most capable Mustang ever."
    The Ford Shelby GT500's supercharged 5.4-liter, 32-valve V-8 is a result of Ford's experience in developing the modular V-8 and V-10 engine series. The engine is force-fed air via a "Roots-type" supercharger providing 9 pounds per square inch of boost. It borrows the four-valve cylinder heads, piston rings and bearings, from the Ford GT engine.

    The 500 hp rating was obtained using the Society of Automotive Engineer's latest standard and was witnessed by an objective third party. The Shelby GT500's 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 will be built at Ford's Romeo Engine Plant in Romeo, Mich. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

    The right to purchase the first 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 was auctioned for $600,000, with the proceeds benefiting the Carroll Shelby Children's Foundation. The 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 goes on sale this summer.
