The 2013 Detroit Motor show was a big deal for Carroll’s company, Shelby American, and Shelby enthusiasts. During the show they unveiled a few surprises, one being an almighty wide-body ’13 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Mustang! Now, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!
The guys at Shelby seem to have the go-big-or-go-home mentality with their latest creations such as the new 662 hp ‘13 Shelby GT500 powered by a Ward’s 2013 Top 10 Engine and the track-ready Shelby 1000. His company, Shelby American, has promised to keep truckin’ along after Carroll Shelby’s passing this past May and with the Detroit Auto Show looming near, the guys at Shelby American supposedly have something big up their sleeves.
Could this be the next-gen ’15 Mustang front end?
What is this we spy? That would be a Ford Mustang obviously, but that front end seems to be hiding something completely different! The cover over the front end is not very Mustang-like at all, well, not yet anyway. The front end seems to have super slim rectangular headlights as well as one hell of a grille. That’s what the cover is showing us, anyway.
Some people may have expected this, but a certain Mustang model won’t be returning to the order list for the 2014 model year. This Mustang was brought back to life in 2012 to pay tribute to the ultra popular classic born in 1969, the original Boss 302. Production ended after the 1970 model year, giving it only a two year run. That’s right, there’s not going to be a 2014 Boss 302! Just like the classic version, the plan was to limit the modern Boss 302 to only two years as well. Sad news for the hordes of people out there hoping for their shot at owning a brand new 2014 Boss 302.
Just when we thought the Cobra Jet was one of the baddest beasts around, Ford Racing unveils a whole new level of intimidation. The naturally aspirated and supercharged Cobra Jets are awesome cars, no doubt, but Ford Racing decided to step it up a notch! They just introduced their turn-key “Twin Turbo Cobra Jet” concept at this year’s SEMA show! The Ford booth was stocked full of some awesome rides, but the Cobra Jet stole the show sitting right smack in the middle of all the action.
