The particular 2013 Shelby GT500 has amazing performance right out of the box. Final month Motor Trend did a thorough check of the new Shelby with amazing results: 0-60 mph in several. 5 seconds, 0-100 mph within 7. 7 seconds and the 0.25 mile in 11. 6 mere seconds at 125. 7 mph. Yet 2013 GT500 also has plenty of untrained potential just waiting to get away. We showed you the first proof of this last month when Lund Racing and Evolution Performance could boost the Shelby by 50 hp and 50 lb-ft torque using a simple tune.
Nevertheless , dyno numbers are one thing plus putting down that power on the drag strip is another. Not to get worried, though, as Evolution Performance is not any stranger to the quarter mile. Actually they’re generally setting the standard with regards to straight line performance – they will still hold the record for the quickest 2011+ Mustang 5. 0. Today they’ve done the same with the 2013 GT500, as they’re the first one to operate a nine second 1/4 distance in the new Shelby. Just a few times ago Evolution took the car on Atco Raceway in New Jersey, rapidly running in the low 10s and eventually coming up a 9. 95 @ a hunread forty two mph. The deed was completed with a few simple bolt-ons (they are not divulging exact modifications quite yet) with the stock engine, supercharger, transmitting and clutch.
