With almost double the Bhp of a base GT500, with slightly worse Cd. and probably better gearing, I don't think this would ONLY go under 220Mph, Unless its limited for stupid reasons. Insurance/Safety/Electronically/Gearing/Stability/ etc

But the people who buy these cars, aren't really interested in Top speed, But you may see some going over the Texas Mile events where this surely would pass 200Mph there.

Even the Shelby not publish the full spec of this car, but this car said can reach over 215 mph in right condition. My guess top speed was around 218 mph to 220 mph just like Shelby estimate.

lol

1200Bhp is a lot, But 270Mph aint happening, a normal GT500 does 202Mph with a Cd.36 and really bad, tall, gearing, so if anything id say this one has atleast a Cd.39 due to more downforce and front splitter, So id guess no more then 256Mph, but probably more like 234Mph.

If this Mustang has the same aerodynamic drag as the Shelby GT500, and if the transmission ratios were adjusted in order to reach peak power at top speed. It could theoretically reach 246 mph according to my calculator. Proof indeed that with enough power even a brick can fly. :)

From what I've read of specs looks like top end is 270mph beating the veyron and venom. By over 10mph shoot the cobra jet torched both on the strip why not all the way around. Some say aerodynamics play a factor watch a freight truck with jet motors do 300+ mph and the dynamics of the 1000s/c ain't that bad. This is Fords and Shelby's F*** you's

The displacement is correct in liters, but it's 351 cubic inches, not 355.

@ Fangio Man: This Shelby appears to be a purpose built street legal drag car, 1,200 horsepower is too much power to allow for this car to be effective on any track except a drag strip, so on the tracks this car is most likely to be driven, it won't reach it top speed.

This thing is scary. Im a courage man, but i would not drive this 1200hp evil.

@Fangio
No, they didn't.. and not likely they will ever reach the top speed... But I'm sure the top speed won't be over 370 kph, due to poor aerodynamics and not advanced transmission.

Fangio Man  7y ago

Did they made a claim for the topspeed?


User avatar

Shaggy  7y ago

@ Fangio Man: I agree.

Is not the same without Carroll Shelby. :(

1200 horsepower is simply tooooo much for the Mustang... It is absolutely senseless and insane... I see this beast-machine only doing enormous burnouts.

I'm not a fan of drag racing, I don't even like NASCAR, and I'm American and was raised in the south, I prefer road racing, so a factory drag car doesn't interest me, but this 1200 horsepower Mustang is unique, I'd like to watch someone try to drive it, just as long as I don't have to ride along. I'm amazed they managed to make a 6 speed manual transmission that can handle that kind of power. Oh, something just occurred to me, this is now the most powerful production 4 seater coupe and most powerful front engine rear wheel drive production car in the world.

I am not a big fan of drag cars, but if they want to set it up with low pressure drag tires, drag shocks, no swaybars, a wheelie bar for safety, etc. this would undoubtedly beat every other production car in a 1/4 mile. Unfortunately that would make it totally unsuitable for any race track or curvy road. If on the other hand they set it up for decent handling, then it will be wheelspin limited coming out of every corner. The heavy front weight balance of Mustangs is hard to ignore in a rear drive car. Wheel spin is prevalent even in 400-500 hp Mustangs, I can imagine that it will just be worse with 1200 hp. Fast car nonetheless.

1200 horsepower in a Mustang, unbelievable, I'll bet this car is hard to drive, seems more like a drag car than a track car.

@Fangio
It will be. I believe this car will come with big drag radials and launch control, but I don't know how much it'll help. Back when the Super Snake had "only" 750hp, they had so much wheelspin that magazines had them running 12's in the 1/4 mile.

I would prefer the GT500 Supersnake. ;)

1200 Hp sounds like much wheelspin...


User avatar

Realy insane :)...Who needs more than 660 hp in "normal" version ?

It is a madness.

The new Shelby 1000 S/C. Now it has 1200 Hp make this thing almost has same power as Bugatti Veyron. Interesting thing about this car is you can order this one with launch control allow you to start more faster than usual. It has new tires and suspension. Shelby still not release any performance data but they estimated this can reach close to 220 mph or less. With launch control it can 0-60 in around 3 sec and close to 4 without it. It will not sold in California due to emission law. This car is a monster on wheel and it will eat you if you're not ready.
