1258hp Shelby Mustang GT500 by Kinetik Motorsport

The 2011 Ford Mustang GT500 is already an exceptionally fast muscle car but the owner of the following example evidently wasn’t satisfied with the performance the standard GT500 delivers. As a result, he headed to the team at Kinetik Motorsport for a radical transformation to turn the GT500 into a drag racing monster.

For starters, an entirely new engine has been installed. It comes courtesy of L&M Engines and is a 5.8-litre V8 engine joined with a massive 4.7-litre supercharger. All told, the engine delivers a truly incredible 1248 hp and 1059 lb-ft of torque. With that in mind, the car managed to clock 336 km/h (209.3 mph) at its debut in the Texas Mile.

Alongside the engine modifications, it includes a Magnaflow 3-inch catback exhaust with competition mufflers as well as American Racing 2-inch primary long tube headers. Elsewhere there is a limited slip differential, Griggs GR40SS suspension and Koni coilovers as well as Baer Extreme slotted front and rear brake discs.
