Stock Mustang Shelby GT500 Battles Tuned GTR, Lambo, Vette

Drag Race

Is this even a fair fight?

How good is a stock Ford Mustang Shelby GT500? Well, anyone can head to their local Ford dealership and buy one for around $55,000. And yes, it comes with 662 horsepower. For the dollar to power ratio, that’s one hell of a bargain. But how does the GT500 do the on the drag strip when up against the Chevy Corvette Z06, Nissan GT-R, Porsche Panamera and the Lamborghini Gallardo? Bear in mind only the Stang is stock; all of its competitors have been given some aftermarket upgrades.

For example, the Z06 has got a puffer and the GT-R has an ECUTEK Stage 2 kit. So how does the Shelby GT500 do on the line and is this even a fair fight to begin with? Check out the video below to find out.
