Good news! The 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 puts out six hundred twenty-four horsepower, that's 624, unless you're a wuss and settle for just 525 horsepower.
That's a step down from the GT500, rated at 662 horsepower, which will move you and the car at over 200 MPH. That speed is very important in America, though not in other parts of the world, as we have unlimited speed limits, little traffic, and wide open roads. You still get 18 MPG in combined city and highway driving, too, which is not that important, as gas and oil are also unlimited.
The performance levels are a long way from the original Mustang pony cars of 1964. Smaller cars, they had less horsepower back then, which makes sense. Gas was much more expensive then and we didn't have the technology that we do now to improve things.
Of course, if you really want to strut and make some noise, you should opt for the Shelby 1000, pumping out 1,000 horses. That costs over $200K before insurance. If you want a convertible, though, you'll need to buy a GT350 or GT500. Just what's needed when you race to work and back home. It's a go, go world.
