1,200 horsepower 2013 Shelby 1000 to debut at New York Auto Show

March 25, 2013 Mustang News No Comments


Ahead of next weeks New York Auto Show, Shelby American has announced they will unveil a new 2013 Shelby 1000 S/C track version with a mind boggling 1,200 horsepower under the hood.  The new Shelby 1000 S/C track version is based on Ford’s current Shelby GT500 platform using the 662 horsepower 5.8L V8 power plant as a starting point.

Creating such a beast is not an easy task as SA tears down the 5.8L V8 engine and strengthens the internals, adds a massive supercharger,  adds an adjustable suspension with launch control, bigger brakes and a performance cooling package to build one of the world’s most powerful production cars.

The 2013 Shelby 1000 post-title package will have a limited production of 100 units and will start at $154,995, not including the base GT500 which could run you around $50K.

For now that’s all we know but check back later in the week as the New York Auto Show gets closer.
