Congrats on the '13! They're a blast! I love my 14! It is everything I wanted and more. There isnt a day that I dont get excited to turn the key and send it! Theres those who feel like they're king of the road and then there are those who know. I know there are faster cars out there, but I haven't found 1 yet. That day will come I'm sure, but unless it's another shelby, it's just another car.:cool::cool::cool:

I love my 2013 GT500 and so should you! :) It's the last of the stick axle Shelby drivers cars! Solid axle, 6 speed throw your own gearbox! And Randy Pobst got a stock 2013 GT500 to 196 mph on the Chrysler proving grounds in Arizona. :)

GREAT video! Thanks for sharing. The scenery and footage of that rocketing down the straight aways was just awesome.

I noticed that on the first two attempts he was running the loop clockwise and on third attempt he was running it counter clockwise (normal to me). Wonder why that is/was?

I’m not feeling any love for the 13/14 with these comments and that kinda disappointing
How do you think all of us who have the less desirable pre-2013 models feel...?.....?

Funny! :LOL:

I think we all agree that ANY GT500 is a special car! Fortunately Ford didn’t stop with the 2007 and kept improving the GT500 along the way.

Me thinks very few 2013/14 owners have seen speeds north of 180 in their stock car, which really makes that ability irrelevant.
I am one of the owners that always takes anything I own to its top speed. For backround, I have raced multiple times at the Bonneville salt flats on my motorcycles.
My 2014 has hit 198.7 on GPS in Death Valley, California on the same road that my 2000 Suzuki Hayabusa has went 194.8 with both being bone-stock.
I think the Shelby would easily break 200 if the side mirrors were removed.

To the OP, good choice!! Nice color too!

That is fantastic! It had to be one hell of a rush almost breaking the 200 mph barrier! ?

I am new here to look up some information and look around. It is sad to see all of the bashing right off the start.
There have been several 2013 and 2014 GT500's that have done over 200 mph. I have taken my modified 2014 to over 205 mph and last week I spanked a hi-end crotch rocket 4 - 4 runs and I only let off at 185 mph.
Why is anyone comparing a 2020 GT500 to a version that is 7 years older? That would be like a owner of a 2020 5.0 mustang comparing his to his friends 2013 5.0 mustang.

Welcome! That’s awesome you have been north of 200 in your 2014! ?

The discussion here is not bashing. We are just discussing differences between GT500s. They are all fantastic.

Always down. I was more speaking of those cars out there that think they're fast vs those who know. You can tell just by the drivers demeanor. Nice to know theres a member out in the socal area. I really wanna get a canyon cruise together. Maybe in the june timeframe.

I'm not bashing my friend. Just a little friendly banter. If I were bashing someone, it would be extremely direct. No sideways shots here. I have been and always will be a mustang man first and an overall American muscle guy.

Sounds like fun. I'm in if you can set it up.
