Ford took the wraps off the 450-plus-horsepower Ford Shelby Cobra GT500 show car at the New York International Auto Show. Designed in the unmistakable image of Shelby Mustangs of the 1960s, the Shelby Cobra GT500 melds SVT's modern engineering with the big-block performance that made the original GT500 the king of the road.
Shelby Cobra GT500's supercharged 5.4-liter DOHC V-8 produces over 450-plus horsepower
Just as the original Shelby GT500 was the 'step up' to big-block power from the GT350, the new Ford Shelby Cobra GT500 steps up to Ford's 5.4-liter 'MOD' V-8. The result? The GT500 is the most powerful factory Mustang ever. Its supercharged 5.4-liter, 32-valve V-8 evolves from SVT's experience with supercharging the 'MOD' engine to deliver more than 450 horsepower and 450 foot pounds of torque.
The cast-iron-block, four-valve engine is force-fed an air-and-fuel mixture via a screw-type supercharger at 8.5 pounds per square inch of boost. Aluminum cylinder heads, piston rings and bearings sourced from the Ford GT program bring a high level of proven durability to the drivetrain, while upgraded cooling components promise longevity. 'Powered by SVT' camshaft covers are the finishing touch to the engine.
