The Ford Shelby GT500 is a beast, an absolute monster of American muscle.  Beneath the car’s hood lies a menacing blown 5.8L V8 engine that packs 662 horsepower, which makes it the most powerful mass-produced V8 engine in the world.  Even more astonishing is that it does that for a reasonable $60,000.  Motor Trend put the car through its paces including an attempt at breaking the elusive 200 MPH barrier, they didn’t quite make it but they got pretty darn close.
