Mustang GT500 Movie

Here is a little movie for the Mustang fanatics, courtesy of Blue Oval News. It shows Carol Shelby flogging a GT500 prototype at Ford's Dearborn Proving Grounds. The video resolution is poor, but be sure to listen to the sounds.

You may notice a big red button sticking out of the center console above the radio. That is an emergency button, which will kill the engine. These are sometimes installed in prototype vehicles, in case the "drive-by-wire" electronic throttle fails.

When a car is quick enough to make Carroll Shelby tag the rev limiter a few times, it's quick.

I'm --->this close<--- to ordering up a GT500. Oh, if not for other financial obligations, and the need to build a new barn.
