960 hp can be hard to handle.
You don’t need to be driving something fast and powerful to have a serious car crash; it can happen to any type of vehicle. Even the best of drivers can make mistakes. But when you’re driving something like a 2011 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, drivers ought to be especially careful. After all, this thing has been tuned to 960 hp and 930 lb-ft of torque. And it’s just been crashed on an on-ramp in Utah. Supposedly the GT500’s transaxle broke when the throttle was pushed, thus causing the car to lose control and go off the highway.
It then rolled multiple times down a hill and came to a rest right-side up. Three passengers were in the car, however only the driver and passenger were wearing seatbelts; the rear seat passenger wasn’t and was ejected. Fortunately, the guy is in stable condition. The Shelby GT500? Obviously totaled. Hat tip to Davis.
