1000+ Horsepower Twin-Turbo GT500 dubbed ‘Code Red’ built by Shelby and Nelson Racing Engines

November 12, 2010 Mustang News, Videos 2 Comments


In the Ford booth at this years SEMA show Shelby American and Nelson Racing Engines had on display their 1000+ horsepower Twin-Turbo GT500 Mustang creation dubbed “Code Red”.  The two year collaboration between Shelby and NRE culminated with the prototype seen before you pumping out insane horsepower numbers well north of 1000 on pump gas alone.  Under the hood a 5.4-liter V-8 features twin 61mm Turbonetics turbochargers utilizing a dual fuel system with two separate tanks for pump and race fuel.

The “Code Red” GT500 also features 20-inch Alcoa wheels, 6 piston Shelby/Baer calipers, 14-inch drilled rotors, 10-point roll cage, Ron Davis radiator, 9 inch Curry rear-end and McLeod twin-disc clutch.

If Shelby American gives the go ahead expect a very limited number of these packages at a cost of around $100,000 which does not include the GT500.  Check out all the photos and a 10-minute video by Tom Nelson about the “Code Red” Shelby GT500 below.

    I love the screaming take off @ 8:47, you can clearly see a police car drive across the intersection. I guess with 1000 horsepower it doesn’t really matter though lol

  2. Lol I think this guy was a little bit nervous about being on camera. At 2:09 he says “Four cam per cylinder” when he really means four valves per cylinder. I think the gear based boost control is really awesome, not to mention the dual fuel tanks although it would be a bit annoying to have to go to 2 different places to get fuel if you plan on keeping that second tank full of race fuel all the time.

    @Cal26: Lol I saw that too. The cop must have been a Mustang fan since most cops would have heard him light those tires up and whipped around to pull him over.
