We’ve been waiting for this, and Shelby American has rewarded us for our patience by unveiling the true numbers behind their new GT350. And boy, what a beast she will be! Based on any old 2011 Mustang GT, Shelby’s first level of tune to the naturally aspirated engine is a ‘modest’ 320kW (430hp). Next up the model line, Shelby add a Whipple supercharger, helping the engine push out 390kW (525hp) – enough for a blistering 3.7 seconds 0-100km/h time! Oh? Is that not enough? Then the R tune is for you – 465kW (624hp) – enough to help you jettison planet earth!

Ford Performance Vehicles has announced its all-new replacement for the long-serving 5.4 litre Boss V8 is the supercharged 5.0 litre “Miami” V8. Based on the Coyote V8 used in the current-generation Ford Mustang, the Miami will be available in two guises in FPV’s model range. Mild and Wild!
Ford gave the green light only once before: In 1968, management approved a special Mustang – a car that sacrificed nothing in its quest to be the best all-around road-going performance machine ever created by Ford Motor Company. That car became the 1969 Mustang Boss 302, and it remains one of the world’s most sought-after examples of American performance.
Following a quick reveal of the Harley Davidson model for 2011, Ford has announced the complete engine line-up for the 2011 model F-150. Four engine options are the go with two V6’s and V8’s helping the F-150 become a class leader in power and towing, whilst still gain well and truly above average MPG.
Currently, you have a selection of, technically speaking, ancient engine options when you go to order your F-150. But, to bring the F-150 inline with Fords’ ‘One Ford’ policy, the 2011 update is getting a whole new smorgasbord of engine choices.
We reported to you recently that the new 3.7 litre V6 Mustang is the most fuel efficient 300hp + car. Well Ford’s continuing on it’s fast but frugal roll with the release of official EPA figures on the new 5.0 ‘Coyote’ powered 2011 Mustang GT.
