PostHeaderIcon Irony: Man Named “Shelby Mustang GT500 Miller” Arrested for Driving Without a License

If we told you that there’s a man in Arkansas named Shelby Mustang GT500 Miller, would you believe us? Better yet, would you believe that Miller was arrested by local authorities last week for three motor vehicle-related charges? As unlikely and ridiculous as this sounds, it also happens to be true. All of it. There really is an Arkansas man with the name Shelby Mustang GT500 Miller, and he really did get arrested for driving without a license, not wearing a seatbelt while driving, and lacking proof of liability insurance.

It doesn’t get any better than this, doesn’t it? I suppose it’s not a good thing because his name is making the news for all the wrong reasons, but the fact that his name is what it is — Shelby Mustang GT500 — is glorious. Unfortunately, Miller’s brazen attitude towards the law is hampering his good name. According to The Smoking Gun, his bond was set at $450, and he has a court date set for March 8.

Unfortunately, Shelby Mustang GT500 Miller is far from a straight arrow. Before this arrest, he already ran afoul of the law numerous times in the past, including another arrest in 2014 after he allegedly got into a fight at a local sports bar, returning later with a hatchet under his shirt, presumably to do some damage with it. He was eventually arrested on charges of public intoxication, weapons charges, and probation violation.

Judging by the plethora of police reports he has incurred over the years, it does seem that “Mustang GT500” is, in fact, his middle name. What’s unclear is whether he got his name from his parents when he was born or whether he decided to string them all together later on with the purpose of eventually finding himself in the news. If it’s the latter, then we salute you, Shelby Mustang GT500 Miller for a job well done. You made the news for all the wrong reasons, but your name will live in on infamy, or at least until we find someone named “Chevrolet COPO Camaro Sanders.”

PostHeaderIcon Ford Study: Driving a Sports Car is Better than Kissing

If you thought kissing, shopping, and watching Game of Thrones gives you the chills, a study conducted by Ford revealed that none of those activities compare to driving a sports car. The preliminary research showed that driving a sports car on a daily basis ranks as one of the best ways to boost a person’s sense of enjoyment, wellbeing, and emotional fulfillment. Riding a roller-coaster emerged as the only activity that surpassed driving a sports car in the study.


“The study was conducted to determine which activities generated what Ford described as “buzz moments.””

The study was conducted to determine which activities generated what Ford described as “buzz moments.” The automaker worked with neuroscientists to study volunteers and their physiological reactions to certain activities. Heart rates and galvanic skin response were monitored to find the level of buzz a person gets during a specific activity. In the end, riding a rollercoaster topped the study with an average of three buzz moments. Driving a sports car came in second with 2.1 buzz moments while kissing, dining, and Salsa dancing generated zero buzz moments.

Despite garnering top results, Ford argued that riding a roller coaster doesn’t give the same daily enjoyment as driving a sports car, largely because nobody goes to theme parks every day or has a roller coaster in their backyards. Driving a sports car on a daily basis is far more attainable, as is the buzz that comes with it. “This study shows how driving a performance car does much more than get you from A to B. It could be a valuable part of your daily wellbeing routine,” psychologist Dr. Harry Witchel said.


“The Ford Performance Buzz Car is also being used as a research tool to detect emotions like fatigue and stress”

To further prove its point, Ford dressed up a Focus RS with sensors to detect the emotions volunteers had when they’re driving the hot hatch that was christened with the name “Ford Performance Buzz Car.” The sensors came with 200,000 LEDs and 82 display panels that were hooked up to a gaming PC. When a driver exhibits an emotion, the Focus RS’ exterior lights up to show the driver’s reaction. The Ford Performance Buzz Car is also being used as a research tool to detect emotions like fatigue and stress, two key elements that could help the automaker develop better driver-assist systems in the future.

PostHeaderIcon First-Production Ford Mustang Bullitt Sells for $300,000

It has only been a week since Ford debuted the 2019 Mustang Bullitt, but a week was all the special edition ‘Stang needed to make a splash. The first-production Mustang Bullitt was a featured item at the Barrett-Jackson auction, where it fetched a top price of $300,000.

“The first-production Mustang Bullitt was a featured item at the Barrett-Jackson auction, where it fetched a top price of $300,000.”

The top price of the Mustang Bullitt is impressive, even if it didn’t come close to approaching how much the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 fetched in the same auction. The $300,000 amount is still a great figure for what is basically a slightly more powerful version of the Mustang GT that also happens to carry a green body paint and an association with the classic Steve McQueen movie.

Fortunately, all the proceeds from the auction will go to Boys Republic, a private, all-boys school that specializes in at-risk children. McQueen himself has an attached history with the school, having attended it when he was an adolescent. It is said that McQueen developed a soft spot for the school, and often demanded razors and jeans in his contracts just so he could donate them to the school. The razors and jeans are solid donations, but they don’t come close to approaching the $300,000 the school will receive from the Mustang Bullitt auction.

As far as auction Mustangs go, the new Mustang Bullitt is not the most expensive special edition or first-production ‘Stang to sell at an auction. Ford’s relationship with the
Experimental Aircraft Association’s AirVenture show usually comes with a special edition Mustang in the mix. These cars go for auction and collect six-figure sums, including in 2015 when a one-off, Petty’s Garage-tuned Mustang GT went for $535,000.

The most expensive Ford Mustang to sell at an auction in recent memory was the first-production 2016 Shelby GT350R. The 500-horsepower Mustang was regarded as the most hardcore incarnation of the sixth-generation Mustang, and it fetched an auction price — $1 million
befitting its status.

PostHeaderIcon Is The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Headed For a Chicago Debut?

With only a month between them, the turnaround time between the Detroit Motor Show and the Chicago Auto Show is usually quick. Just as soon as Detroit ends, the buzz surrounding Chicago begins. This is especially true for a company like Ford, which appears to have an important model that’s scheduled to make its debut at the Chicago Auto Show. Apparently, show organizers mistakenly published lists of vehicles that will be on display in the Windy City, and one of those models is the new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.


Is The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Headed For a Chicago Debut? - image 715314

Ford has not confirmed whether the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is headed to Chicago. The lists were first picked up by the fine people over at Mustang6G, but the post has since been taken down. There was no explanation given on why the post is gone, but it could be that Ford doesn’t want the public to know that the Mustang Shelby GT500 would be in attendance in Chicago.

That said, the 2018 Chicago Auto Show starts on February 10, 2018. That’s three weeks away, which means that Ford could start rolling out its teasing game of the highly anticipated muscle car in the coming weeks.

It wouldn’t be a shock to see the Mustang Shelby GT500 make its debut in Chicago. The event has played host to a lot of important Mustang debuts since the show started all the way back in 1901. In recent years, the Chicago Auto Show has hosted the debuts of a number of Ford Mustang and Shelby Mustang variants, including the 2012 Mustang Shelby GT350, the 2013 Mustang Shelby GT500 Convertible, and most recently, the mid-cycle update of the current-generation Ford Mustang.

If the new Mustang Shelby GT500 makes its debut in Chicago, we can expect it to be powered by a 5.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that has an increased output of 700 horsepower. That would give enough muscle to compete against the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Mustang Bullitt

Arguably one of the most iconic Mustang of all time, the Bullitt returns into showrooms five decades after the original car helped make the best chase seen in movie history. It was 1968 when Steve McQueen drove a Mustang GT390 Fastback like there was no tomorrow on the streets of San Francisco in the “Bullitt” movie, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in October 2018. To mark the event, Ford prepared a new iteration of the Mustang Bullitt for the first time since 2009. The car was unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Motor Show alongside the original version, and it’s the most menacing Bullitt ever made.

Set to go on sale in the summer of 2018, the new Mustang Bullitt walks in the footsteps of its predecessors. It’s based on the Mustang GT, it features a host of unique features inside and out, and it has a subtle appearance. But under the skin, the Bullitt packs a bit more oomph than the GT and delivers better performance. If Steve McQueen was still around, I’m sure he would’ve taken one home and maybe even use it for a sequel to the iconic movie. But unfortunately Steve is no more, so we’ll have to settle for the cool, Bullitt-inspired commercial Ford made for the car. Check it out below.

Continue reading to learn more about the Ford Mustang Bullitt.


Exterior

  • Includes all 2018 Mustang updates
  • Iconic Dark Highland Green color
  • Exclusive grille design
  • 19-inch Torque Thrust wheels
  • Black exhaust pipes
  • Red brake calipers
  • Faux gas cap on rear fascia

“The new Bullitt benefits from all the new design features of the mid-cycle facelift Mustang”

Based on the recently unveiled 2018 Mustang, the Bullitt benefits from all the new design features of the mid-cycle facelift pony car. Highlights include redesigned headlamps with LED, reshaped front grille, new diffuser, and revised taillights. In addition to the above, the Bullitt gets its own unique features, most of them based on the styling cues of the original movie car.

Up front, we can see a new grille design with a honeycomb-pattern, black mesh. There’s no pony logo, but Ford added subtle chrome accents on the upper frame. Onto the sides, we can see the usual Torque Thrust wheels, also based on the original car and seen on previous iterations of the Bullitt. On this car, they measure 19 inches and are made from aluminum. Behind them, red-painted Brembo brake calipers add a dash of color.

Around back, the Bullitt gets the revised diffuser that comes with Premium Package, which is standard on this special edition, a circular faux gas cap with the Bullitt logo on the rear fascia, and new Black NitroPlate exhaust tips. Speaking of colors, the new Bullitt can be ordered in just two exterior paints. There’s Dark Highland Green, a modern, metallic version of the original movie car’s shade, and Shadow Black.

Interior

  • Standard Premium Package
  • Leather upholstery
  • Premium display
  • Upgraded audio system
  • Navigation and cruise control
  • Green accent stitching
  • White cue ball shift knob
  • Custom start up screen
  • Optional Recaro seats

“The interior is pretty much standard GT spec with additional standard features and a few unique bits”

The interior is pretty much standard GT spec with additional standard features and a few unique bits. The vehicle is equipped with the Premium Package as standard, which adds leather upholstery, the bigger display for the infotainment system, ambient lighting, aluminum pedals, satin brush aluminum on the center stack, an upgraded sound system, navigation, adaptive cruise control, and rain-sensing wipers.

Ford also offers a heated, leather steering wheel as standard, alongside the 12-inch, all-digital instrument cluster from the facelifted, 2018 Mustang. Bullitt-specific features include green accent stitching on the dashboard, door panels, center console, and seats, and a white cue ball shift knob as a nod to the original car. The infotainment system has a unique start screen in green with an image of the car rather than the pony.

The options list includes a set of leather-trimmed Recaro seats and the Bullitt Electronics Package. The latter includes driver memory seats and mirrors and Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert that can alert customers of vehicles detected in difficult-to-see places, among other features.

Drivetrain

  • Upgraded 5.0-liter V-8
  • At least 475 horsepower
  • Manual transmission
  • Active valve system
  • Retuned exhaust
  • Open air indusction
  • Shelby GT350 intake manifold
  • Performance Package features
  • Optional MagneRide suspension

2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt - image 759998
“The naturally aspirated V-8 gained a few revised internals for enhanced performance”

Just like its predecessors, the new Bullitt gets its juice from an updated version of the GT’s 5.0-liter V-8. The naturally aspirated unit gained a few revised internals for enhanced performance and remains exclusive to this special edition. Final output figures have yet to be announced, but Ford did say that the engine cranks out “at least” 475 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. That’s 15 extra horses compared to the standard GT, while torque is identical, but expect the final spec sheet to include a bit more pound-feet as well.

The V-8 mates to a manual transmission only, with no option for an automatic. Ford also added an active valve performance system, while the exhaust was retuned to give the engine a signature burble. Other upgrades include an Open Air Induction system, intake manifold with 87mm throttle bodies from the Shelby GT350, and a recalibrated powertrain control module.


2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt - image 760008
“Upgrades include an Open Air Induction system and intake manifold from the Shelby GT350”

More updates come from the Performance Package, which is standard on this model. The bundle adds update springs, bushings, shocks, and a rear sway bar. It also includes an upgraded strut tower brace, bigger brakes, updated rear gear ratio, and a Torsen differential.

Optionally, the Mustang Bullitt can be equipped with the MagneRide semi-active suspension system for optimized driving performance.

For has yet to release performance figures, but the Bullitt could be a tenth-second quicker than the Mustang GT with the manual transmission thanks to the extra oomph. Top speed for this model is rated at 163 mph, an eight mph increase over the Mustang GT.

Prices


2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt - image 760002

Pricing information is not yet available, but it’s safe to assume that the Bullitt will cost more than the Mustang GT Premium. The latter retails from $39,095, so look for the Bullitt to cost at least $45,000 before options.

Competition

Chevrolet Camaro


2016 - 2017 Chevrolet Camaro - image 645703

The Mustang GT’s most important competitor right now is the Chevrolet Camaro SS. But unlike the Mustang, the Camaro doesn’t have an iconic movie to brag about. At least not as famous as the Bullitt model. Sure, there’s the Camaro Bumblebee from Transformers, but Chevrolet has yet to turn it into a production model. The regular Camaro SS isn’t a bad option though .It’s styling is decidedly aggressive and modern, while the interior comes with plenty of premium features and can be customized in numerous ways. Output is solid too, with the 6.2-liter V-8 rated at 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque. That’s at least 20 horses below the Bullitt, but the Camaro SS benefits from notably more torque. And if you’re not a fan of manual transmissions, you can have the SS with an eight-speed automatic too. Pricing for the SS starts from $37,900, but the better equipped 2SS trim comes in at $42,900 before options.

Dodge Challenger


2015 Dodge Challenger - image 549937

Yes, the Dodge Challenger is very long in the tooth and its rather big and heavy for a modern pony car, but the nameplate is a traditional competitor for the Mustang and it can’t be ignored. Its design is still appealing if you like massive-looking muscle cars, and while the interior isn’t as fancy, the Challenger is a solid option when it comes to performance. Granted, the 5.7-liter V-8 isn’t as exciting with just 375 horsepower and 410 pound-feet at its disposal, but the 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 trumps the Bullitt’s 5.0-liter with a whopping 485 horses and 475 pound-effect. It significantly slower from 0 to 60 mph (4.4 seconds) due to the heavier curb weight, but top speed is superior to the Bullitt at 182 mph. But it’s more affordable, with the least expensive model using the 6.4-liter Hemi, the R/T Scat Pack, costing $39,995. You can get the same drivetrain in the 392 Scat Pack Shaker and T/A 392 at $42,795 and $44,995, respectively.

Mustang Bullit Timeline

  • Original car built in 1968
  • Revived in 2001
  • Previous model launched in 2008
  • All modern cars have similar updates

What's in a Name? The History Behind The "Bullitt" Name - image 758982
“It was only in 2001 that FoMoCo built the first special-edition Bullitt model”

While the original Bullitt became famous in 1968, Ford didn’t do much to benefit from all the hype production-wise. It was only in 2001 that FoMoCo built the first special-edition Bullitt model for the fourth-generation pony car. Developed in partnership with Warner Bros, it featured a large hood scoop, new side scoops, revised lower body moldings, and a unique rear side window shape. Ford also deleted the spoiler and the foglamps for a cleaner look closer to the original car. Aluminum pedals and shifter and vintage-looking upholstery rounded off the interior.

Under the hood, the GT’s V-8 received a new intake, high-flow mufflers, and special underdrive pulleys that helped increase power to 265 horsepower. The torque curve was also improved, helping the Bullitt cover the quarter mile in almost three tenths quicker than the regular GT. New suspension features improved handling, while the Mustang Cobra brakes and Goodyear performance tires provided better stopping power. Available in Dark Highland Green, True Blue, and Black only, the first Bullitt was a 2001-model-year car only, with production ended after 5,582 units.


2008 Ford Mustang Bullitt - image 215041
“The Bullitt name was revived in 2008, during the production cycle of the fifth-generation Mustang”

The Bullitt name was revived in 2008, during the production cycle of the fifth-generation Mustang. Exterior features were similar to the first version, unique wheels and grille, and decklid spoiler and badge delete. Inside, Ford added bespoke door sills, gauges, and steering wheel cap, an aluminum dash panel, aluminum shift knob and pedals, and GT500-inspired front seats and steering wheel.

Drivetrain-wise, the second Bullitt featured an open-element air filter, a unique exhaust that mimics the sound of Steve McQueen’s car and big, 3.5-inch tips. The V-8 was tweaked to deliver 315 horsepower (an extra 15 horses compared to the GT), while the Tremec five-speed manual got a 3.73:1 ratio. These updates dropped 0-to-60 mph times to 4.9 seconds from the GT’s 5.2 ticks. Unlike it’s predecessor, this Bullitt model remained in production for two model years, until 2009.

Conclusion


2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt - image 758243

Granted, the Mustang Bullitt is far from being as spectacular as the GT350 or the upcoming GT500 in terms of features and performance, but I’m happy to see it return into dealerships as a special edition model. It may not have the outrageous output of a supercharged GT500, but it comes with all the heritage in the world and a design that matches the GT390 that Steve McQueen himself drove back in the late 1960s. Original Bullitt Mustangs are hard to get since Ford made only a couple of them, so fans have to settle for newer models. The ones based on the fourth- and fifth-generation Mustangs are also cool, but this new iteration not only looks better, but performs better as well. Welcome back, Mr. Cool!


  • Leave it
    • * Only two exterior colors
    • * Not exactly affordable

PostHeaderIcon Ford Teases Mach 1 Electric… SUV?

Ford is on a quest to have 40 electrified vehicles by 2022 to meet the demand for fuel efficiency and receded local emissions. One of these vehicles will be a crossover with a fully electric drivetrain. Sounds great, right? Well, not so fast. This crossover will be “Mustang inspired” and be named the Mach 1.

As you should know, the Mach 1 name dates back to 1969 as a performance package on the Mustang. The Mach 1 package added an upgraded suspension, several appearance upgrades, and several V-8 engine options. The package continued through 1978 until Ford resurrected the name in 2003 and 2004 as a send-off for the fourth-generation Mustang. But regardless of year or body style, the Mach 1 name was synonymous with performance.

As for the “Mustang Inspired” thing, Ford hasn’t divulged what this inspiration will look like. The crossover could have a similar face or taillight cues as the Mustang, or maybe even a similar dashboard design.

One thing is for sure; the Mach 1 will be built on a separate platform from the Mustang due to its electric drivetrain and battery pack. That confirmation comes from Ford Executive Vice President Raj Nair in a conversation with Jalopnik.

But regardless of how Mustang-inspired this crossover is, it will still be a high-riding wagon with five doors. Why Ford thinks it’s a smart idea to brand an all-new electric crossover with such an iconic name rich with muscle car heritage is beyond me. It would be like Chevrolet making a Camaro-inspired electric crossover and calling it the Z/28 or Dodge building one inspired by the Viper and naming it the SRT-10.

Names mean things; they carry weight and history. More importantly, vehicle names are engrained into customers’ psyche and elicit connotations of worth, performance, capability, and cultural significance. I’m all for Ford building an electric crossover. It would probably sell extremely well. But, Ford should reconsider slapping such an iconic nameplate onto an unrelated vehicle that doesn’t even hail from the same vehicle category.

PostHeaderIcon New Ford Mustang Bullitt Is Mean and Green in Detroit

Rumored to make a comeback for many years now, the Ford Mustang Bullitt returns in its third iteration at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Based on the facelifted version of the sixth-generation Mustang, the new Bullitt arrives just in time for the movies’ 50th anniversary. Launched almost a half-century after Steve McQueen created the coolest car chase in movie history, the new Bullitt came to Cobo Center alongside the original car from 1968.

Showcased in a metallic dark green color that mimics the shade of the original model, the new Bullitt follows in the footsteps of its fourth- and fifth-generation-based predecessor, sporting an understated look, a number of exclusive features, and a retuned drivetrain. On the outside, it gets subtle chrome accents around the grille and front windows, a unique black grille, and the obligatory Torque Thrust wheels, this time around in 19-inch size. A set of red Brembo calipers completes the look, but it also gets the aerodynamic extras that come with the Performance Package. Color options are limited to the classic Dark Highland Green and Shadow Black.

Understated but More Powerful


“The standard seats come from the Mustang GT, but owners can upgrade to the optional leather Recaro units”

The cabin is equally understated, with upgrades including the 1960s-inspired white cue ball shift knob and green accent stitching on the seats. The standard seats come from the Mustang GT, but owners can upgrade to the optional leather-wrapped Recaro sports units. The 12-inch all-digital instrument cluster, which was launched with the facelift, features a unique Bullitt welcome screen that starts in green with an image of the car instead of the pony. A heated leather steering wheel is included as standard.

Additionally, Ford offers an optional Bullitt Electronics Package that includes navigation, driver memory seats and mirrors, upgraded sound system, and Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert.

“Output has been increased compared to the standard 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of the Mustang GT”

Under the vented green hood lurks the familiar 5.0-liter V-8 “Coyote” engine, but output has been increased compared to the standard 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of the Mustang GT. Specific figures aren’t yet available, but Ford says the new Bullitt will benefit from at least 475 horses and 420 pound-feet of twist. Expect it to hit 60 mph a tenth-second than the regular GT, so we could be looking at a 3.8-second benchmark. Top speed is also higher, up to 163 mph from the standard 155 mph.

The Bullitt comes with a manual transmission as standard, but it features a number of drivetrain upgrades on top for the revised engine. It sports an active valve performance exhaust with new Black NitroPlate tips retuned for signature burble, a new Open Air Induction system, and an intake manifold from the Shelby GT350. The optional MagneRide semi-active suspension system optimizes driving performance.

The new Mustang Bullitt is due to hit showrooms this summer, but pricing information is not yet available. We should know more as we review the pony car later this week.

PostHeaderIcon Survey: Ford Mustang, Tesla Top List Of Most Desirable Cars of Average Americans

A recent survey conducted by marketing agency Digital Third Coast and automotive products company Golden Eagle revealed the average car tastes of most Americans. The survey had some predictable results, most notably the Ford Mustang staking claim as the often-stated “dream car” among most Americans. Surprisingly, though, Tesla came in second, followed by a Jeep, a Corvette, and a Camaro.

The sample size of the survey is small – only 2,000 Americans participated – relative to the study’s topic, but it did paint a seemingly accurate picture of the car tastes of most Americans. It’s not surprising that baby boomers still long to own a Chevrolet Corvette while Gen-Xer’s are still captivated by the mystique of the Chevrolet Camaro. For their part, millennials identified Tesla as their dream cars, an understandable answer considering that they’re literally coming into adulthood at the same time as Tesla is coming into its own as a legitimate automaker.

The survey also revealed that Tesla has a foothold in the Northwest, Southwest, and Pacific as the dream car among Americans living in those regions. The Mustang is well-represented by folks in the Midwest and Southeast while those living in the Mountain regions surprisingly identified the Range Rover over any kind of Jeep as their dream cars.

Tesla continues to pop up at various times in the survey, but there is a good bit of irony in the revelation that most people who identified themselves as “not knowledgeable” about cars chose the electric car maker as their dream car. It’s likely that they identify Teslas, whether it’s the Model S, Model X, or Model 3, as the cars of the future, in large part because of the company’s status as a pioneer in electrification and autonomous driving technology. These people are less captivated by the mechanical and technical intricacies of a car as they are about the possibility of going to work while the car drives them there autonomously.

On the flip side, those who identified themselves as “car experts” chose the Mustang as their dream car. Hardly a surprise there, either.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit

Less than 24 hours ago it was discovered that Ford’s service information included a shot of what appeared to be a supercharged 5.2-liter as part of a wiring diagram. Well, once you dig around, it turns out Ford has already written the book on the GT500, so consider this as confirmation: It’s coming. And, it may be coming sooner than you think. Ford has an off-site event planned just prior to the kick off of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month, and the GT500 could very well stretch its wheels in the public eye for the very first time. Want to learn about all of this new information? Keep reading to see it all for yourself.

The Previously Seen Diagram


Supercharged Engine in Ford Wiring Diagrams Could be Proof of a Mustang GT500 with a DCT Transmission!!! - image 754628

As mentioned in our previous article, this is clearly the supercharged 5.2. It has the floating throttle position sensor due to a different design, a similar belt routing to the 3.6-liter, a cobra on the intake manifold, and there’s even a different flywheel with a unique-looking flexplate. However, this is just the tip of the GT500 Iceberg – You can read more about this initial leak, or keep reading to find out about top speed.

GT500 Top Speed Could Exceed the 200 MPH Barrier


Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit - image 754871

As you dig around Ford’s service information, it becomes painfully evident that the GT500 has been in the works and that Ford has already updated most of its service information to include it. Case in point – This snippet of the speedometer verification command structure. Take a look at that final entry: 100% at 200 mph. That sounds pretty promising, but look at the indication range: 194 -214 mph! Holy Toledo – we’re talking about some serious muscle from the Shelby. And as you might expect, the GT500 will also have its own special brake setup:

Ceramic Brakes With Wear Indicators


Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit - image 754869

But, that’s far from all, and it gets even more exciting. Check out this information on the new drive modes:

GT500 Drag Strip and Launch Control Drive Models


Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit - image 754870

You see that right, folks. The GT500 will trade off the Snow\Wet and Track drive modes in place of a fresh setup that includes “Drag Strip” and “Launch Control.” So, to put it simply, Ford is building its answer to the Dodge Hellcats (and maybe the Demon?) as well as the upcoming C8 Vette too. The plus side to the GT500, however, is it has that Magride suspension, so guess what? It’ll be able to corner with the best of them too.

Technology and Other Bits


Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit - image 754872

Ok, so Ford has a habit of going all out for GT models, no doubt, but this time around, it’s even giving the GT500 its own HUD. Now, the HUD hasn’t actually be confirmed yet, but service information shows it in the network message chart and tells us that there will be a shift point light. It will probably also display other important information like tach information and oil temperature. We’ve also learned that it will idle at 900 rpm – just a hair faster than that of the GT. Finally, Ford’s Vin decoder shows a Vin “Z” listed as a 5.2-liter, DOHC, Ti-VCT, Supercharged, V-8. Unfortunately, it won’t get the soul that is the flat plane crank, but you’re probably not going to care because this is going to be THE car of 2018, no doubt.

What do you guys think of all this information so far? Let us know in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Supercharged Engine in Ford Wiring Diagrams Could be Proof of a Mustang GT500 with a DCT Transmission!!!

Information leaks seem to be commonplace today, and you couldn’t be blamed if you didn’t know which was worse: Leaks from the auto industry or leaks from the U.S. Government. On the plus side, however, the leaks from the auto industry give us a little glimmer of hope and, in this case, it’s hope that a GT500 isn’t only in the works but so far on its way into production that its engine is showing up in wiring diagrams already. That’s right, the guys over at Mustang6G have stumbled upon a supercharged 5.2-liter engine that’s even sporting the Corba logo right on top. This has to be, without a doubt, the engine for the GT500. You can add that to previous leaks as well, including an image of the cobra-baring intake manifold and an internal document about engine oil requirements.

Want to know more? Check out our little breakdown of this latest leak:

“The apparent flex plate is a nod to the potential for an automatic transmission, or in this case, we’re probably looking at a dual-clutch unit – maybe the seven-speed”

It’s pretty clear that someone over at Ford really screwed up. Perhaps this is why the golden rule is to let writers write and designers design? Either way, someone snagged the wrong image and used it for this wiring diagram, and it’s clearly evident in a few different places. First off, you can, plain as day, make out the supercharger pulley. There’s also the Cobra logo, and the fact that the throttle position sensor is non-existent yet the wiring is still in place. The big thing here, however, is that the flywheel is completely different than that of the GT500. The engine is clearly derived from it, but that flywheel is different. The apparent flex plate is a nod to the potential for an automatic transmission, or in this case, we’re probably looking at a dual-clutch unit – maybe the seven-speed. And, for what it’s worth, that flexplate doesn’t match up with the 5.0-liter, so it’s not bolted to that 10-speed auto Ford is boasting these days either.

“The GT500 will likely use a sprung primary flywheel which, in any case, means that the GT500 will certainly be special – it will be a first for the GT”

With that in mind, the GT350 does have a primary/secondary flywheel design. It has the same three notches seen in the image above and a similar layout of eight bolt holes. The problem is, the GT350 has a secondary flywheel which isn’t seen in this image, ultimately leading to the conclusion that the Tremec seven-speed may be the transmission of choice. If so, the GT500 will likely use a sprung primary flywheel which, in any case, means that the GT500 will certainly be special – it will be a first for the GT. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Jennings Motor Group Renders 8 Sports Cars As SUVs

In case you’ve been living under a rock (or maybe you’re just in denial?), demand for crossovers and SUVs continues to consume just about every automotive segment imaginable. Even the well-established performance marques are susceptible to the siren song of profitable jacked-up suspension plus tons of practical rear cargo room, with models like the Porsche Cayenne and Lamborghini Urus upending decades of sports car traditions. But what if we took it a step further? What if we gave eight iconic sports cars the SUV treatment? Welp, Jennings Motor Group did exactly that with the following renderings.

Continue reading for the full story.

2017 Ford Mustang SUV Concept


Jennings Motor Group Renders 8 Sports Cars As SUVs - image 753773

No matter the market, the Ford Mustang is undoubtedly considered ‘Merica’s sports car. And, as sales numbers will prove, ‘Merica also loves its SUVs. So then – what if you took the styling of the new sixth-generation pony car and grafted it to the front end of a tall-bodied SUV? Sounds like a red, white, and blue dream come true, right? Just make sure to tick the V-8 option under the hood – no four-banger needed here, thank you very much.

Alfa Romeo 4C SUV Concept


Jennings Motor Group Renders 8 Sports Cars As SUVs - image 753767

The Alfa Romeo 4C is classic sports car stuff – small, lightweight, excellent weight distribution, and smile-making handling chops. It’s also quite the looker, if you ask us. But that’s a formula we wouldn’t mind seeing in other segments as well, including SUVs. As such, this Italian beauty might have us clamoring for more, even with hotness like the Alfa Stelvio already out and about. We’re thinking a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder under the hood, plus a six-speed dual-clutch auto box to drive the rear wheels.

McLaren 720S SUV Concept


Jennings Motor Group Renders 8 Sports Cars As SUVs - image 753768

To help broaden its appeal beyond the unobtanium hypercars that make up the top of its lineup, McLaren also offers a variety of “entry-level” supercars with the Sports Series, which includes models like the 570 and 540. Then there’s the mid-grade Super Series, which bridges the gap to the top dog Ultimate Series and P1, thanks to the still-obscenely-quick 720. Of course, it’s all in the name of funding McLaren’s racing efforts, which means a 720S SUV might pay a few bills in case Fernando Alongo’s ride goes pop (again). We would expect V-8 power and surprisingly good aero bits for this one.

BMW i8 SUV Concept


Jennings Motor Group Renders 8 Sports Cars As SUVs - image 753770

We love the BMW i8 for a variety of reasons. Not only is it quick, but its got tons of tech under the skin. Carbon fiber everything plus hybrid motivation can make for a potent combo, even in SUV guise. We’d expect AWD to make a reappearance with an i8 SUV, plus an ICE with a few extra cylinders to help it retain the i8’s sporting intentions. You probably wanna move the gas-burner into the nose as well. Oh, and that sci-fi exterior styling? Looks pretty good on an SUV – at least we think it does…

Aston Martin V12 Vantage SUV Concept


Jennings Motor Group Renders 8 Sports Cars As SUVs - image 753769

Aston Martin is well versed in the art of the grand tourer. Make it comfortable inside, make it beautiful outside, and make it very quick everywhere else. We think taking that formula and applying it to an SUV format would likely be equally as successful, given the average car buyer’s obsession with adding practicality to traditionally sports-focused brands. Either way, who can argue with 12 cylinders thumping under a well-louvered hood?

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 SUV Concept


Jennings Motor Group Renders 8 Sports Cars As SUVs - image 753771

Muscle cars are actually pretty good inspiration material for a sporty SUV. The power is already there, so why not build on it with a large-and-in-charge body style? That’s exactly what’s going on with Camaro ZL1 SUV, which also tosses in the track-friendly coupe’s aero with a front splitter, lower bumper canards, and side skirts, not to mention that flat-black vented hood. The only question left to answer is what kind of times will it turn on the track…

Ferrari 488 SUV Concept


Jennings Motor Group Renders 8 Sports Cars As SUVs - image 753772

No doubt this one will have some of you out there crying foul, as the Prancing Horse would never, ever resort to creating an SUV, right? Right?! Not so fast there, chief. Word has it the Prancing Horse might be seriously considering exactly that, so this 488 concept might not be too far off the mark. Coming proper in corsa rosso red paint and rocking the sleek front end of its coupe sibling, this thing certainly looks the part of a Ferrari…

Honda NSX SUV Concept


Jennings Motor Group Renders 8 Sports Cars As SUVs - image 753774

The second-gen NSX is a fantastic piece of kit. Powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 boosted by two turbos, plus no less than three electric motors, its got the right powertrain to have us watering at the mouth, while the advanced exterior aero and space-age vibe help it stand out in the segment. Ported over to crossover form, it gets a much more bubbly countenance, but as long as it still goes like stink, we’d have a hard time complaining.

PostHeaderIcon Do These Leaked Images Prove a New Shelby GT500 Mustang is on the Way?

Up until now, it was largely unknown whether or not there would be a Shelby GT500 or a Bullitt Mustang derived from the sixth-gen Mustang – especially considering the fact that it just went through a major facelift for 2018. Rumors have been flying like pans from a scorned wife, but nothing official. And, there’s still nothing official, but the guys over at Mustang6G forums have posted a couple of intriguing images that point to the GT500 being a near certainty. We’re talking about a supercharger for the 5.2-liter with a Cobra emblem on it and a pair of massive rotors with Brembo calipers. Sure, security over there must suck, but the good news for us is that it looks like a GT500 is in the works. And, it could debut real soon, right next to the new Bullitt Mustang…. Say what? That’s right… two icons could very well make their return with the next few months. Keep reading to learn more.

Do These Leaked Images Prove a New Shelby GT500 Mustang is on the Way? - image 752559

At this point, all we’ve seen are leaked, authentic-looking images of a supercharged and a massive brake rotor. But, there’s a little more to it than that. Take a closer look at the brake rotor. Do you see the stamps on the hub? It says KR3V and, as one forum member pointed out based on the GT350 rotor codes, K would point to 2019, R3 means Mustang, and V means specialty vehicle engineering. Furthermore, there’s also an easter egg image floating around, seen below, that gives us some info than could stand for something more. See, the odometer on the image below? It reads 1121.8 or 1-12-18, which is a day before the Detroit Auto Show kicks off and an ideal debut time for a Shelby (or Bullitt Mustang) Look at the main odo – it reads 1964.5, and I really hope we don’t have to explain that numbering to you. What about that time? The 289 miles to empty and the 55 mph speed? There’s a lot more going on here than meets the eye, but the important part is the miles, pointing to a Detroit debut and something we’re really looking forward to. Or, maybe we’re wrong…

A New Bullitt Mustang


Was a Next-Gen Ford Mustang Bullitt Caught Playing in Chicago? - image 750720

At this point, you’ve probably seen those weird images of a potential Bullitt Mustang doing commercial filming in Chicago. Everybody has covered it. Hell, we’ve covered it twice. That thing is now all but confirmed by Ford as the latest images pretty much give it away. Does that mean that we’ll see a new Bullitt Mustang show up next to a Shelby GT500 at the Detroit Auto Show? Maybe the GT500 debuts there and the Bullitt debuts at the super bowl…. Now that would be something, right?

Final Thoughts


2019 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang - image 718145

Oh man, two special Mustangs in one year? Talk about amazing. But, maybe it won’t happen and is all vaporware mixed in with some crazy coincidences. Either way, it’s a good time to be alive, and performance cars are really making a comeback. I can’t help but mention that line after reading it on Mustang6G, as the member post made a very good point. Look at all of the cars we have for the taking… The Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcats with crazy Hemi engines, the Dodge Demon, and let’s not forget the new Focus RS and the fact that the Civic Si has finally found its way to American shores. The point is, my friends, that while SUVs are running rampant and filling our streets, there’s still a performance car our there for just about anyone whether you want crazy power and RWD, a hot hatch with AWD, or a FWD performer like the Civic SI. It’s only fitting that Ford come correct with a car like the GT500 and it’s about damn time we get another Bullitt, don’t you think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon More Shots of a new Bullitt Mustang Provide Confirmation of its Existence

There’s been a lot of whispers surrounding a potential return of the “Bullitt” name to the Ford Mustang catalog. We first caught wind of this after seeing a window sticker back in October of what looked like a Bullitt-spec ‘Stang. That was followed by photos shared by one of the forum goers at Mustang6G last week of a car that looked eerily like a Bullitt Mustang, right down to the famous Dark Highland Green (DHG body finish. Not content with these sightings, eagle-eyed observers have once again captured a peculiar Mustang on the road, and from the looks of things, this car could very well be the 2018 Ford Bullitt Mustang.


More Shots of a new Bullitt Mustang Provide Confirmation of its Existence - image 750720
“The latest batch of spy photos taken of the car in driving around Chicago is the first definitive look we get of the next Bullitt Mustang”

I have to apologize for being a little too excited about this development. It’s been nine years since Ford launched the first Bullitt version of the iconic muscle car so you can understand why this is such a big deal for some people, especially those who have a life-long lovefest with anything related to Steve McQueen. While I don’t count myself in that group, I understand the significance of a Bullitt Mustang. It’s only been done once in the muscle car’s history, and it’s almost been a decade since we last saw it.

The latest batch of spy photos taken of the car in driving around Chicago is the first definitive look we get of the next Bullitt Mustang. It’s wearing the iconic Dark Highland Green paint finish that was made famous in the Steve McQueen movie Bullitt from which the car gets its name. It also looks to have Recaro seats, red Brembo brake calipers, black exhaust tips, and that fake gas cap that was seen on the leaked sketchboard images that we saw earlier this year.

To be fair, Ford has neither confirmed nor denied the existence of a new Bullitt Mustang. But after seeing these new photos, it’s hard to imagine this particular Mustang being anything other than the version we’ve all been waiting for. The man who took the photos even said that it was taken while the car was in a photo shoot or a commercial. It makes me wonder then if this commercial was being shot with the intent of showing it in a big event that’s coming up in the next few months. It feels a little too late for Christmas and New Year’s Day, but there is that one sporting event coming in February where all these new commercials come out.

Could we expect this commercial for the 2018 Bullitt Mustang to come out during Super Bowl LII?

PostHeaderIcon Mustangs Heading to Scrap Get New Life as Luxury Wrist Watches

Christmas is just around the corner, so the holiday shopping craze is effectively in full swing. If you’re still looking for a gift for somebody who happens to love Ford Mustangs, these new timepieces from Rec Watches called the P-51 make for perfect gifts. It may not be a Hublot or a Panerai, but they are unique for one reason: they’re made from salvaged Ford Mustangs.


Mustangs Heading to Scrap Get New Life as Luxury Wrist Watches - image 751932
“The people behind REC Watches source their materials from Ford Mustangs that are beyond repair”

The story behind the creation of these watches is as fascinating as it is incredible. The people behind REC Watches source their materials from Ford Mustangs that are beyond repair. They don’t touch Mustangs that are in good condition, or even those that can be restored, no matter how difficult that process may be. They stick to scrappers. Once they’ve identified a Mustang they can use, they take parts of that Mustang and use those parts for their watches. They use the metal panels. They use the dials from the cars. They even try to get the identification plates of the scrapped ‘Stangs, right down to the VIN numbers. From there, they start the very real process of building these watches individually depending on the materials they have in front of them.

The result is a thing of beauty. All P-51 watches carry the same design theme. The fuel gauge serves as the power dial, which shows the watch’s battery life. Just below it is the main face, numbers, and hands of the watch. All together, they resemble the components you’d normally find on the instrument cluster on an old-school Mustang.

“If the result isn’t cool enough, REC Watches also makes it a point to dig up the history of the specific donor Mustang that they’re using”

If the result isn’t cool enough, REC Watches also makes it a point to dig up the history of the specific donor Mustang that they’re using. It even tries to find the car’s previous owners, then makes a video for the watch it creates to tell its backstory.

Needless to say, the P-51 watches don’t come cheap. There are three designs available, and pricing starts at $1,495 depending on the style. If the P-51s aren’t to your liking, REC Watches also has other offerings, including watches made from salvaged Porsche 911s and Mini Coopers. Hard to imagine finding a story like this one.

PostHeaderIcon Was a Next-Gen Ford Mustang Bullitt Caught Playing in Chicago?

One of the Forum goers over at Mustang6g.com was out and about in Chicago when he spotted what could very well be a Bullitt version of the sixth-gen Mustang. Of course, there’s no word from Ford, but its resemblance to the sketch of a Bullitt in a previous promotion video is downright uncanny. It even appears to be wearing the Dark Highland Green (DHG for short) and has those five-spoke wheels with black spokes and chrome accents. You can really make out if the rear window louvers are in place, but if you look just behind the roof line, it does appear as if there’s a little turgidity there that could, perhaps, be window louvers. If not, then maybe this is just a weird coincidence, but what do you think? Keep Reading for a little more

It Could be a Trick

The Bullitt Mustang is revered. Your Ford-hating buddy probably even understands and appreciates the Bullitt Mustang. But, whether or not this one is actually real, or is even happening for the sixth-gen Mustang is a bit of a reach. See, Ford has a nasty little habit of really sticking it to its fanboys by using heritage to sell a new model but not making the said model. Remember back when Ford introduced the 2005 Mustang? Ford’s commercial had all the right nuts and bolts. It had Steve McQueen’s likeness, a farm, a winding racetrack, and even a toss of the keys to a digitally created McQueen. Of course, if you know your Ford history, there was no 2005 Ford Mustang Bullitt. In fairness, the car in that commercial wasn’t painted in DHG, and this one appears to be, but it could be another marketing gimmick to show off the 2018 Mustang and all of its new features. All I’m saying is, don’t get too excited just yet. Just as a fun look back, here’s that Mustang introduction video from 2005 that I was just talking about. Think a digital version of Steve McQueen will show up in the 2018 Mustang Commercial that was being filmed in Chicago? Let us know your thoughts… or how badly you want a new Bullitt in the comments section below.

The Bullitt Mustang is revered. Your Ford-hating buddy probably even understands and appreciates the Bullitt Mustang. But, whether or not this one is actually real, or is even happening for the sixth-gen Mustang is a bit of a reach. See, Ford has a nasty little habit of really sticking it to its fanboys by using heritage to sell a new model but not making the said model. Remember back when Ford introduced the 2005 Mustang? Ford’s commercial had all the right nuts and bolts. It had Steve McQueen’s likeness, a farm, a winding racetrack, and even a toss of the keys to a digitally created McQueen. Of course, if you know your Ford history, there was no 2005 Ford Mustang Bullitt. In fairness, the car in that commercial wasn’t painted in DHG, and this one appears to be, but it could be another marketing gimmick to show off the 2018 Mustang and all of its new features. All I’m saying is, don’t get too excited just yet. Just as a fun look back, here’s that Mustang introduction video from 2005 that I was just talking about. Think a digital version of Steve McQueen will show up in the 2018 Mustang Commercial that was being filmed in Chicago? Let us know your thoughts… or how badly you want a new Bullitt in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Seven Modern Cars With A Retro Twist

The evolution in car design is one of the biggest identifiers into how far the auto industry has come in the last 50 years. Classic designs from years-gone-by have given way to modern designs that sit on the shoulders of cutting-edge technology. There’s no going around how things have changed in the industry, but what if there was a way to mesh the classic designs of yesteryear with today’s design language? Would the results be something you’d be interested in? Would you cringe and run away from them as fast as possible?

Fortunately, we won’t have to imagine what those cars would look like. Marketing agency NeoMam Studios prepared a few renderings of these cars, which we’re going to show below. There are seven renderings in total, with each car getting an injection of old-school design touches. Not everything worked out as well I’d hope, but you might have different reactions altogether. Let us know in the comments section below how you feel about the renderings.

Aston Martin DB11 Retro Concept


Seven Modern Cars With A Retro Twist - image 746862

I like how this turned out. You can clearly see elements of the modern DB11 in the front. The headlights, the front grille, and the hood are all straight out of the DB11. Meanwhile, the bumper is straight out of the DB5. It’s the same thing with the wheels. The rest of the body features a blend of the two vehicles. The upright windshield is a callback to the iconic Aston Martin but as the roof approaches the rear section, the shape takes a more streamlined turn, departing from the boxy look of the DB5. Overall, there’s good balance in this rendering. Both the DB11 and DB5 are well-represented and there shift from the design of one car to the other doesn’t feel forced.

Mercedes-AMG GT Retro Concept


Seven Modern Cars With A Retro Twist - image 746861

I’m not a fan of this one. This is what the Aston Martin DB11 Retro Concept avoided. I do appreciate the references to the AMG GT on the front, specifically the headlights and the front grille. What I didn’t like is how busy and front-heavy the car looks. The modern AMG grille already attracts a lot of attention, but when you add that long hood and the front bumper of the 300SL, the result is too many things happening in such a small space. The rest of the car looks great, especially the use of the 300SL’s side intakes. Shorten the length of the front hood and use the 300SL’s grille and this rendering could look a lot better.

Ford Mustang Retro Concept


Seven Modern Cars With A Retro Twist - image 746860

This one is a beauty. I love everything about it. I love that references were used on more than just two versions of the Mustang. I love that even with a big canvas to work on, the finished product still looks like a proper Mustang. The modern front end blends seamlessly with the old-school rear section. It’s the latter that really takes this rendering to another level. Those imposing fenders look like well-tuned traps, creating the look of a perfectly toned muscle car. The hood scoop is also a nice touch. Of all the renderings in this article, this is the one that stands out as something that I would love to see come to life.

Bugatti Chiron Retro Concept


Seven Modern Cars With A Retro Twist - image 746864

I’ll say this about the Bugatti Chiron Retro Concept: no shame was spared in the rendering of this car. I can see a pocket of people who’d appreciate the use of design elements from the Type 57C. I just don’t think it works. The separate front bumpers look completely out-of-place on the Chiron-inspired front section. I wouldn’t have added them in the first place. Those intakes on the front would’ve been fine on their own. Leave it like that as opposed to adding front bumpers that don’t do anything aesthetically. As messy as that looks. the rear section is the real eyesore in this rendering. I’m sorry, but if you’re going to use the Chiron as the modern inspiration in this rendering, there’s no way the finished product works if you’re going to go old-school in the design of the rear section. Not only are those wheel covers aerodynamic hindrances, but they just look completely out-of-place in this kind of rendering. This one could’ve been a lot better if it wasn’t too ambitious.

Aud R8 Retro Concept


Seven Modern Cars With A Retro Twist - image 746865

I find the Audi R8 Retro Concept rendering to be the opposite of the Bugatti Chiron Retro Concept. There’s not enough here to make this rendering stand out. If you look real close, the only notable elements from the R8 are the side blades and the rear shape of the car. Every other bit is a mix of old-school Audi’s that make the rendering look like a convoluted mess. If you’re going to use the R8’s name to identify this retro concept, shouldn’t you have more noticeable references to the R8 in the rendering? It’s not the case here so I’m having trouble seeing anything that’s worth remembering.

Ferrari LaFerrari Retro Concept


Seven Modern Cars With A Retro Twist - image 746863

I like the Ford Mustang Retro Concept the best. The Ferrari LaFerrari Retro Concept is a close second. My only concern about this rendering is how the low the front end sits. It’s a little too close to the ground for my liking. Other than that, this rendering hits all the right spots, right down to the use of the LaFerrari’s front section and the cockpit-style interior. Combine that with the elegant length of the legendary Ferrari F40 and this creation hits all the right spots. It’s a Ferrari that I wouldn’t mind seeing on the road today.

Dodge Charger Retro Concept


Seven Modern Cars With A Retro Twist - image 746866

Ok, I’m changing my mind. The Ferrari LaFerrari Retro Concept gets bumped down to third place in my personal rankings of this list. The Ford Mustang Retro Concept slides into second and the Dodge Charger Retro Concept takes its place as the best of the lot. Look at it. Everything about it speaks muscle and performances, right down to the perfect design balance attributed to the Charger Daytona and the Plymouth Superbird. I’ve always been fascinated with these so-called “Wing Cars,” and to see them combined into one car is a sight to behold. This is the best rendering of the lot, and it’s not even close.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Shelby Mustang 1000

2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000

It’s been only four three model years since the sixth-generation Ford Mustang arrived in showrooms, and the pony has already spawned an impressive number of versions wearing the Shelby badge. Although the iconic GT500 has yet to be revived, Ford has already launched the GT350, the Super Snake, GT-H, and GTE, just to name a few. The GT500 may still be a year away, but sixth-gen Mustang, but Shelby just launched yet another performance model. This time around it’s the Shelby 1000, the brand’s most menacing creation in terms of output and straight-line speed.

The Shelby 1000 is closely related to the GT500, as the first model to wear this badge, launched in 2011, was based on the fifth-generation GT500. Offered in both street and 1000 S/C track versions, the first iteration of the car was discontinued in 2012. The 1000 returned in 2013, once again based on the GT500, but now with the 5.8-liter V-8 instead of the old 5.4-liter unit under the hood. Both the street package and the S/C track package were offered. Also available as an upgrade for the GT500, the package was discontinued in 2014, after only two years on the market. The new Shelby 1000 is the first such model based on the sixth-generation Mustang, so everything about it is new compared to previous iterations. Let’s have a closer look at the car in the review below.

Continue reading to learn more about the Ford Shelby Mustang 1000.

Exterior

  • New front fascia with larger intakes
  • Bulged engine hood
  • Wider fenders
  • Fatter wheels
  • Sporty side skirts
  • “Shelby 1000” graphics
  • Trunk lid spoiler
  • New diffuser

“The wider fenders make way for fatter tires, but also give the car a more menacing stance”

Ever since it was introduced in 2011, the Shelby 1000 made a name for itself as the most aggressive road-legal production version of the Mustang in terms of exterior design. The new model is no exception from this rule and looks even more menacing on the styling cues of the facelifted, sixth-generation ’Stang.

As usual, it sports wider than usual fenders. These were added to make way for fatter tires, but also to give the car a wider stance for increased stability and a more aggressive look. Shelby redesigned both the nose and the bumper. The grille now features a honeycomb mesh and a trapezoidal element at the bottom with “Shelby” lettering inside.


2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000 - image 742933
“Around back, there's a new spoiler atop the trunk lid and a more aggressive diffuser below”

Below, we can see larger side cooling ducts, a more aggressive lower grille, and a bigger splitter. The hood is new as well, now sporting a massive center bulge and big vents, both added to accommodate the supercharged engine.

Moving onto the sides, we can see a new vent on the front fender, black side sill extensions, and “Shelby 1000” lettering on the lower door area. The standard Mustang wheels have been ditched for 20-inch, forged aluminum rollers with a twin-five-spoke design. Around back, there’s a new spoiler atop the trunk lid and a new, more aggressive diffuser with wide exhaust pipes below the bumper. As usual, the black panel between the taillights comes with “Shelby” lettering.

Interior

  • Illuminated sill plates
  • Katzkin leather
  • Rear-seat delete
  • Four-point roll-bar and harness
  • Autometer gauges
  • CSM badging
  • Custom floor mats

Note: Standard 2018 Ford Mustang pictured here.

“The front seats are wrapped in Katzkin leather, while the rear seats have been removed”

Shelby has yet to release interior shots of the 1000, but it did post a list of upgrades it made to the sixth-generation Mustang. Open the door and you’ll be greeted by special, illuminated Shelby sill plates. You’ll notice almost immediately that the front seats are wrapped in Katzkin leather. Because this car was built with racing in mind, the rear seats have been removed and a four-point roll-bar and harness system was added for enhanced safety. Other highlights include an instrument with Shelby by Autometer gauges, CSM badging on the dashboard, and custom floor mats.

In addition to all of the above, customers will benefit from the sixth-gen Mustang’s redesigned interior. Despite this model being almost four years old as of 2017, I’m mentioning it because this is the first Shelby 1000 based on it. So the new 1000 will have quite a few features to stand out by compared to previous versions of the supercharged coupe, including a redesigned dashboard with a more modern design, fresh technology, softer materials, and a bit more room.

“In terms of new-for-2018 tech, there's a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and Ford SYNC Connect with FordPass”

Those who opt to have the Shelby 1000 update on the facelifted, 2018-model-year ’Stang will also benefit from hand-made contrast stitching, padded knee bolsters, and aluminum door handles, rings, and bezels. You can even have a heated steering wheel if you check the option on Ford’s ordering list.

In terms of new-for-2018 tech, there’s a 12-inch digital instrument cluster with a personalized LCD and Ford SYNC Connect with FordPass. Available as an option, the latter is an app that enables drivers to start, lock, unlock, and locate their car using smartphones.

Drivetrain

  • 5.2-liter Alluminator V-8 engine
  • 4.5-liter Shelby by Whipple supercharger
  • Upgraded new, manual transmission
  • Shelby exhaust system
  • Short throw shifter
  • 1,500-horsepower rated axles
  • Penske adjustable shocks and springs
  • Ford Performance sway bars
  • Brembo braking system
  • Frame strengthening
  • Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires

“The 1000 package ditches the 5.0-liter V-8 that comes with the Mustang GT, replaced by a larger, 5.2-liter unit”

As it is the case with most Shelby muscle cars, most of the upgrades are hidden under the engine hood. The 1000 update ditches the 5.0-liter V-8 that comes with the Mustang GT, replaced by a larger, 5.2-liter unit. If it sounds familiar it’s because Shelby is using the same engine found in the cool GT350. However, while the GT350 is a naturally aspirated car, the Shelby 1000 also gets a 4.5-liter, Whipple-designed supercharger.

The assembly also gets new radiator, heat exchanger, oil cooling, and an aluminum cooling tank, as well as a Shelby exhaust with long tube headers. It mates to a new manual transmission with revised cooling parts and a short throw shifter. There’s also a one-piece drive shaft, a truple disk clutch, and a Shelby fuel pickup system. Driveline upgrades are rounded off by an oil recovery system, an ATI vibration dampener, and a high capacity oil pan.

“The new axles are rated at a whopping 1,500 horsepower”

The new axles are rated at a whopping 1,500 horsepower. Speaking of which, Shelby has yet to announce the power rating of the 1000 model, but if the past is any indication, you can specify as much horsepower as the axles can handle. In this case, 1,500 horsepower. It’s worth noting that the first-gen model developed 920 horses in road-legal specs, while the second-gen car was good for a whopping 1,200 horsepower. Assuming that Shelby will offer two power ratings, expect at least 1,000 horsepower from the base model.

But the Shelby 1000 isn’t just about engine upgrades. The chassis has been heavily modified too and now includes revised front spindle and control arms, new rear lower control arms, Penske adjustable shocks and springs, a caster camber plates and adjustable sway bar link, Ford Performance sway bars, Ford Performance half shafts, a Brembo brake system, and further frame strengthening. The wheels, which feature hardened studs, are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires for enhanced grip.

“It's safe to assume that it will hit 60 mph from a standing start in less than 2.5 seconds”

Of course, you’re probably asking how fast this car is in a straight line. It’s difficult to tell without actual specs, but it should be the quickest Shelby ever created. If you really need a figure, it’s safe to assume that it will hit 60 mph from a standing start in less than 2.5 seconds. Actually, it could be almost as quick as the Dodge Challenger Demon, which needs only 2.3 ticks.

Interestingly enough, Shelby claims that the new 1000 is an entirely different car compared to its predecessors, as it has been designed to be the “ultimate road course warrior.” But this mission was far from easy, according to the firm, which said that modifying the sixth-generation Mustang was far more complication due to the independent rear suspension system and the new platform.

“Since Ford dropped the solid axle rear end, we had to take an entirely new approach,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby vice president and head of development. “Not only did we build strength into the car with components like heavy-duty halfshafts and CV joints, we revised the entire suspension by using tubular adjustable upper and lower control arms, as well as fully adjustable coilovers. We then added 10 and 12 inch forged wheels with sticky 20 inch rubber to maximize traction with this high level of power.”
While the previous generation Shelby 1000 was offered in both street and off-road configuration, a decision was made not to pursue emissions compliance on the new model, Shelby added, which makes the newest generation 1000 “purely a track star.”

Prices


2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000 - image 742305

While the new Shelby 1000 package was advertised on the facelifted, 2018 Mustang, the upgrade is available for any sixth-generation Mustang GT. Production will be limited to only 50 units per year, but Shelby didn’t say whether this edition will last more than the previous ones, which were around for only two model years each. Like any Shelby out there, each car will be documented in the official Shelby Registry. Pricing for the package is set at $169,995, not including the Ford Mustang GT. Add the base car, which retails from $35,095 before options, and the Shelby 1000 will cost you a whopping $205,090!

Competition

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon


2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon - image 713286

When it comes to massive horsepower and drag-ready underpinnings, the Challenger Demon is the best competitor I can think of. Developed with fast quarter mile runs in mind, the Demon is a development of the Hellcat, but with significant upgrades in just about any department. The Demon is a Hellcat on steroids on the outside, featuring a new splitter, wider fender flares, and a beefed-up engine hood. Inside, the Demon is again similar to the Hellcat, but benefits from new seats with “Demon” logos, a bespoke instrument cluster, extra performance apps, and optional leather. The standard model comes with just the driver seat, but options include two- and five-seat layouts. Power comes from a souped-up supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8 that cranks out horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. It might not sound like much compared to the Shelby 1000, but the Demon needs only 2.3 seconds to hit 60 mph. However, this figure is achieved when the car is equipped with radial drag tires and used in Drag Mode. The Demon is also the fastest quarter-mile production car with a 9.65-second run at 140 mph. It’s so quick that the NHRA actually issued a ban, as regulations state that a car that’s quicker than 9.99 seconds on the drag strip (at more than 135 mph) requires extra safety equipment and a racing license. This coupe is also fitted with a large number of upgrades developed to sustain the insane performance, including the SRT Power Chiller, TransBrake, and Bilstein shocks tuned for drag racing, just to name a few. Pricing starts from $84,995 (including $1,700 gas guzzler tax, excluding $1,095 destination), which makes it $20,800 more expensive than the Hellcat, but significantly more affordable than the Shelby 1000.

Hennessey Camaro ZL1 “The Exorcist”


Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 The Exorcist by Hennessey - image 715078

Built by Texas-based tuning company Hennessey, “The Exorcist” is not a factory-built car like the Demon, but it’s put together in the same way as the Shelby 1000. And the outrageous power and its nickname make it a suitable rival for the other cars in this comparison. Built around the latest Chevy Camaro ZL1, “The Exorcist” has a supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8 rated at 1,000 horsepower and 966 pound-feet of torque and rides on drag slicks. The 0-to-60 mph sprint comes in “under three seconds” while the quarter-mile happens in “less than 10 seconds,” which should be pretty close to the Shelby 1000. The good news is that even though it’s not a factory vehicle, the upgrade can be ordered through Chevrolet dealerships and comes with a two-year/24,000-mile warranty. What’s more, the 10-speed automatic transmission is joined by a six-speed manual, whereas the Demon can’t be had with a stick. Pricing for this package starts from $55,000, not including the car, which means that the sticker actually begins from $116,140. Get all the options and “The Exorcist” will set you back a whopping $142,080. Far from affordable, but definitely not as expensive as the Shelby 1000.

Read our full story on the Hennessey Camaro ZL1 “The Exorcist.”

Conclusion


2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000 - image 742306

The Shelby 1000 is far from being among the brand’s most iconic nameplates. Because it’s still relatively new, having been first introduced in 2011, it will be overshadowed by the GT350, GT500 and the Super Snake for many years to come. On the other, I have to give the 1000 credit for being the most extreme Shelby ever built. And with new axles rated at 1,500 horsepower, the new Shelby 1000 will be more powerful than ever. Granted, there’s a chance it won’t be as quick as the Challenger SRT Demon on the drag strip, but it will put any production muscle car and most aftermarket upgrades to shame in terms of horsepower. And needless to say, it doesn’t look bad either. Put a big wing on that thing, and you’ll have a full-fledged race car on your hands. The only downside here is that the Shelby 1000 is very expensive. You can buy a Porsche 911 GT3 and still have some $60,000 to spend on fuel and weekends at the Nurburgring.

  • Leave it
    • Likely not as quick as the Demon
    • Very, very expensive
