Amid launches of cars more crucial to Ford’s future success such as the 2010 Taurus and Fusion, the automaker introduced the 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, a car more crucial to the brand’s performance reputation than its bottom line.
Carroll Shelby and the folks in the SVT stable were putting together a more powerful and more refined Shelby GT500. A glance at the front end will reveal larger upper and lower air intakes that appear ready to swallow any obstacle whole. Ford says the new front end takes styling cues from the Shelby AC Cobra 427s of the early 60s.
When it came to the powertrain, Ford capitalized on the advancements made with the 40th anniversary edition Shelby GT500KR. The output of the 2010 Shelby GT500 is matches the 540 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque generated by the KR. The 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 will still be channeled through a muscle-car-era solid rear axle, revised ignition and throttle calibration and a cold-air intake. The new intake uses a conical filter and a front grille snorkel.
