At Ford’s Private Preview Event for the 2013 Philadelphia Auto Show, Ford Racing decided to go above and beyond expectations by playing host to a crowd of local Mustang clubs with an invite-only breakfast, free gifts and a bit of exclusive action before the auto show kicked off.
Net Geo’s Megafactories: Building The Mustang takes a rare glimpse inside Ford’s Detroit manufacturing plant, showing us how they produce our beloved and world-renowned Mustang. From GT500s to the base model V6, Net Geo shows you everything and anything you could possibly want to know about how they build America’s favorite ponycar.
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.
We all know the new 5.8L Supercharged DOHC v8 in the 2013 Shelby GT500 is nothing to mess with. After all, what do you think would happen if you had to race the 662 horsepower / 631 lb-ft torque beast? I’d suspect most of us would not be calling for a rematch. Well, it looks like Ward’s Auto is keen to the new power plant’s amazing power, promoting it to their list of the “Best Engines of 2013” as the lone v8 to make the list.
Following in the footsteps of the traditional Boss 302, the 302S takes the standard Boss platform to a whole new level. When it comes to price and performance, this track-only build by Ford Racing is a balance between the Boss 302 Laguna Seca and the all-out Boss 302R race car. With tons of suspension upgrades separating it from the Laguna Seca, this 302 is bound to dominate racetracks during the 2013 race season.
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.
