Watch Motor Trend's Car Chase: 2013 Shelby GT500 vs. the Police


This has got to be tons of fun.

Everyone loves a good police car case and when there's a Shelby GT500 involved, it immediately grabs our attention. As always, the people over at Motor Trend know how to have a good time. Their latest video features Ford's new 662hp Shelby GT500 evading the 2013 Ford Police Interceptor and 2012 Dodge Charger Pursuit police cars. The 5.8-liter V8 aluminum-block engine sitting under the Shelby's hood is the highest-horsepower engine ever produced in the U.S.

Nearly every part of the powertrain has been optimized for producing the additional horsepower, including a new supercharger, new cross-drilled block and heads. As well as an all-forged engine rotating assembly, updated camshaft profiles, upgraded head gaskets, a new carbon fiber driveshaft and upgraded clutch, transmission and axle.
