A Ford Mustang with as much power as a Bugatti Veyron!

Shelby America has recently taken the covers off an insane Ford Mustang with over 1000bhp. Called the Shelby 1000, there will be two versions offered to the lucky few who have the cash to buy them. The first model is a street legal version running 950bhp with the help of regular fuel. The other model is a track version with 1100bhp on tap.

The Shelby 1000 gets a completely rebuilt 5.4-liter V8 engine with a Whipple supercharger, new mechanicals like a modified crank, a revised cooling unit and an exhaust system. Shelby America also replaced the stock driveshaft with a lighter and stronger aluminium piece.

The Mustang receives a fully reworked Eibach suspension system to make sure it can cope with the excess power and transmit it to the road. Upgraded front and rear brakes are called up for duty, while the Shelby 1000 rolls on 20-inch lightweight forged aluminium wheels.

With just 50 of these Shelby 1000 models set for production, you can bet that they won’t go for cheap. It’s estimated that the car will be priced at approximately $200,000 (includes the cost of the Shelby GT500 car set to be modified). Worth the money? Let’s just say that Shelby America already has a waiting list of 30 individuals itching to get their hands on one.
