A video appeared on the Internet showing the overclocking capabilities of the Shelby GT500 sample of 2014. The car accelerates and travels at maximum speed along an abandoned airfield. The trip was recorded by a salon camera.

In 2014, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was one of the coolest American muscle cars. But things are changing, and the current GT500 boasts a little more power. The recently released video, which was filmed at Johnny Bomer’s Proving Grounds, shows the speed-driving capabilities of the 2014 Mustang Shelby GT500.

This 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 features a 5.8-liter supercharged V8 that develops 662 horsepower and 855 Nm of torque. A six-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels.

In this race, the car drives 4.35 kilometers out of 5.15 possible. The track is located only 2.53 meters above sea level, and the height difference at the distance is only 0.635 centimeters.

The driver gently presses the clutch, first rolling the accelerator pedal slightly before depressing the accelerator pedal. Acceleration up to 249 km / h is fast, but shifting gears at this speed slows down the acceleration rate.

The GT500 is still slowly picking up speed. When the Mustang passes the finish marker, a speed message of 296 km / h is displayed on the screen. However, GPS shows that the car accelerates to 294.697 km / h.

In comparison, the modern Mustang Shelby GT500 is still powered by a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine. The power has become much higher – 760 hp. (847 Nm). Instead of a six-speed manual, there is a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. According to official specifications, the car will be able to accelerate to 96 km / h in 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 289.7 km / h.
