All thrillseekers agree that a used 2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a great option if you aim to make every trip to the grocery store feel like a Hollywood chase scene.
Under the hood, you’ll find a monstrous 5.4-liter supercharged V8 that spits out 550 hp and 510 pound-feet of torque. Yes, really. The Shelby GT500 likes to put all of those horses to work, which is clearly evidenced by the fact that it can catapult from zero to 60 mph in a lightning-fast 4.1 seconds.
But the Mustang Shelby GT500 isn’t just a one-trick-pony (pun intended.) Thanks to Brembo brakes, the 2012 model can reach a complete stop from 60 mph in a very short 103 feet. In Motor Trend tests, it consistently pulled an impressive 1.01 g on the skidpad, which should please drivers who enjoy hairpin turns.
This manual coupe also allows you to choose from three different driving modes, including Normal and Comfort. But If you want to have some adventures - and let’s be serious, if you’re investing in a Shelby GT500, chances are you want to get into a bit of trouble - change to the Sport setting and handling becomes weighted and tires grip a little tighter.
