At 662 HP, 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Certified As World's Most Powerful V8! Segment-Leading Fuel Efficiency
Good job Ford, Wonder how GM feels now about the GT500 seeing as before they were still saying the ZL1 was the better car.

No one currently does. The LS9 could be, but it is detuned by GM (for traction issues, according to the magazines prior to the ZR1's release). Haters gonna hate.

This car is amazing for what it is. It can only push GM to greater things, so even if you're a Ford hater, this is good for your future GM productions.

How much more could you squeeze out of it though is the question.

I've actually read that a few guys have been able to order them at, or slightly under MSRP in certain areas. Either way you're getting a lot of car for the money, the ZL1 is in real trouble.

Well that's not a mass produced V8 it's a niche car that they build a few a year. And besides the three cars a year they make what else is there? Shelby makes a 1100 HP version of the 2012 GT 500 but that doesn't count either, we are talking about mass produced V8's. BTW I did google it and all that popped up was the Shelby.
