2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500: New 5.8-Liter Engine Photo

Follow Nelson

The 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was unveiled at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show last month, and we were there to cover it. What isn't widely known, however, is that the car on the show floor didn't have the new 5.8-liter, 650-horsepower engine under the hood. It still had the previous 5.4-liter version. This image shows what the new engine will look like.

As you might expect, it looks a whole lot like the current one--the main differences are on the inside. A new TVS series 2300 supercharger displacing 2.3 liters sits atop it, however, helping the big V-8 reach its phenomenal production car power figure by flowing more air than the previous 550-horsepower 5.4-liter's supercharger.

For the full details on the 2013 Shelby GT500, check out our preview here or the video below. Otherwise, enjoy the gallery.

  1. That would be a 200mph pony, a figure that belongs in super-car territory. Not exactly a Mustang for the blue collar people...Let's hope the steering and the breaking are up to the engine's performance...

  4. Dodge better think about picking up the pace with the Challenger if they want to keep up with the mustang, camaro and corvette. They need to stuff a procharger or turbo on an srt8 challenger and get 700 ponys in order to keep the brand x's at bay.
