A 1,000 HP Mustang? You Betcha!

2012 Shelby Mustang GT 1000 coupe

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.

    I’m mostly there with you, but it is pretty cool to see. I mean, before the Veyron, there weren’t any (to my knowledge) production street cars that have over 1000 hp. That was simply ludicrous speed saved only for top fuel dragsters and the like. Now, there are a handful of cars that make over 1000 hp that can be driven on the street. For a demonstration that “any” car can get to this power level, I like this ‘stang. To drive? Oh hell no.

    You can buy a Nissan GTR put a AMS 1000 package in it for a of 160,000 so not worth it.
