If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to drive an American muscle car with enough horsepower to move a small continent, then Shelby American may have the answer.

The 2013 Shelby GT500 convertible debuted in Chicago to mark SVT's 20th anniversary

It was at the 1992 Chicago Auto Show that Ford's high performance arm, the Special Vehicle Team (SVT), entered the automotive scene with the debut of the 1993 SVT Mustang Cobra and SVT F-150 Lightning. In the 20 years since, more than seven different SVT vehicles have been produced around the attributes of "Performance, Substance, Exclusivity and Value." To mark the 20th anniversary of SVT, the company has decided to let its top down by debuting the new 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 convertible at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show. The topless version packs the same 650 horsepower powerplant as the hardtop model that debuted in L.A. late last year.  Read More

The 2013 Ford Shelby GT500

The latest high performance variant of the Ford Mustang bearing the Shelby name has been unveiled at the 2011 LA Motor Show, and it's a beast. Packing a 5.8-liter supercharged V8 producing a headline-grabbing 650 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque, Ford claims the new 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 is the most powerful production V8 in the world. While the Mustang has never been the most aerodynamic vehicle on the road, the vehicle’s completely reworked drivetrain provides the power to propel it to a top speed of over 200 mph (322 km/h). And as surprising as the grunt under the hood, Ford says the new Shelby GT500 manages to avoid the United States’ Gas Guzzler Tax.  Read More

The SSC Tuatara

Shelby Super Cars has finally pulled the wraps off the car it has had under development for several years which is aiming for 280 mph. The aluminum and carbon fiber SSC Tuatara was styled by talented American designer Jason Castriota, and will run a mid-rear mounted, seven-litre, twin-turbo, Quad camshaft V8 producing 1,350 bhp. Shelby previously held the title of the world's fastest production car with the 1183 bhp, twin-turbo V8 Ultimate Aero TT which ran 412.68 km/h (256.18 mph). It bested the previous fastest, the original 1001 bhp Bugatti Veyron's 408 km/h (254 mph) but lost the title back to the French marque last year when a 1200 bhp Bugatti Veyron Super Sport ran 431 km/h (268 mph). Great image gallery on this one.  Read More

45th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang

On April 17, 2009, Ford and the Mustang Club of America will commemorate the 45th anniversary of the legendary Ford Mustang with a four-day celebration in Birmingham, Alabama. Based originally on the Ford Falcon, the brand has gone through many changes over its 45 year history, but still retains the essence of the breed. Ford released the first Mustang in 1964 (dubbed Mustang 1964½ because it came out at the unusual half way point of the year) and since then it has become one of the most iconic muscle cars in American automotive history, selling 9 million units along the way.  Read More
