The 2013 model year brought about some huge changes for the GT500, though its basic construction remained identical to the 2012 model year. The biggest additions were bumping the engine to 5.8 liters engine and adding a new supercharger, giving the 2013 GT500 a full 662 horsepower and 631 foot-pounds of torque. Another big deal for the 2013 model year was the addition of launch control, which allows even the most novice driver to unleash the engine’s performance perfectly, getting it to 60 mph in just about 3.5 seconds. Also added in was a new Brembo braking system with 14-inch front rotors and 11.8-inch rear rotors.Read more »
The Ford Shelby GT500 comes in just a single trim level and it features a wide range of features that make it sporty and luxurious at the same time. The 2013 Shelby GT500 comes standard in a coupe format, but you can opt for a convertible model. On the outside it comes standard with quad-exit 4-inch exhaust for a throaty sound, HID headlights to help you see better at night, LED fog lamps for seeing through low-laying fog, 19- and 20-inch staggered wheels, LED sequential taillights that are not only cool looking but draw more attention to the fact that you’re turning and tinted glass. Inside the cabin, the GT500 keeps things cool with standard air conditioning and entertains its occupants with a Shaker stereo system with CD/MP3/AM/FM/SiriusXM capabilities. The leather bucket seats are both comfortable and sporty, and a 4.3-inch LCD screen in the instrument cluster keeps the driver connected with the car.
