I honestly don’t think that people understand how powerful a 1,000 hp car really is. A Corvette ZR1 for example puts out 638 hp/604 lb-ft of torque. A Bugatti Veyron has 1,000 hp and has every techno and safety gadget known to man. So let me ask you – would you really want a Mustang with 1,000 hp? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to slight the Mustang in any way, but I think that’s simply too much power. Carroll Shelby however disagrees. So much so that he’s now getting ready to launch the 2012 Shelby 1000. A car that in stock form will pump out approximately 950 hp, and in track mode over 1,100 hp. Oh, and the price for this… a cool $200,000. Personally, I’d go out an buy a Porsche GT3 RS with its meager 450 hp and call it a day.
