When it comes to Mustangs, they don’t get any wilder than the Shelby GT500. Available in coupe or convertible format, either model comes with a spine-compressing 650-bhp supercharged 5.8-liter V-8 coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission. Top speed is 202 mph and the sprint from 0-60 mph should only take 3.7 seconds. Considering its awesome performance, you might expect the GT500 to be an absolute beast away from the racetrack. Surprisingly, it’s easy to drive – though be warned, the rear tires can spin in 3rd gear. If you’re going racing, the optional Track Package adds an external engine oil cooler, along with coolers for the differential and transmission. Another choice is the Performance Package, which includes sportier springs, thicker anti-roll bars, a Torsen limited-slip diff and cockpit-adjustable Bilstein dampers.
