2007 Ford Mustang Shelby Gt500 Coupe 2-door on 2040-cars
Jackson, Mississippi, United States
No matter how nasty, ferocious, and fast a car may be, there are always guys who want more. More power, more speed, more performance. And for those guys, a garden-variety Ford GT500 just wasnt enough. Enter this 2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake, a 600+ horsepower monster that over-delivers on one heck of a big promise. To get a Super Snake, youd buy one new 2007 Shelby GT500, then send it back to Shelby American for the big horsepower injection. Of course, its a lot more than just more power, with the Super Snake getting some special emblems and its most iconic feature, the custom hood with that giant scoop, all made of carbon fiber and rumored to cost more than $25,000. Each. The Vista Blue paint is factory-issue and like new in every way, and theres no question the guys at Shelby understood what customers expected in a $100,000+ supercar. Panel fit is excellent, the paint looks miles deep, and those satin black stripes add just the right aggressive look without being overpowering. Standard GT500 body parts round out the look, and theres nobody in the world who wont fall in lust with this Mustang the moment they lay eyes on it. The fact that its showroom fresh only adds to the appeal. The interior is standard GT500 as well, but thats hardly a bad thing. Deeply sculpted seats now wear Super Snake embroidery on the headrests and there are some special floor mats, but the rest should be familiar. What that really means is that the money was spent on the important stuff under the hood and since nobodys complaining about the accommodations in the Super Snake, well, better to just leave well enough alone. The black leather remains in excellent condition, as youd expect on a car with under 8535 original miles and the list of features is as long as your arm: A/C, power windows, locks, seats, and mirrors, cruise control, tilt wheel, and a kickin stereo thatll make your ears bleed before the engine will. Auxiliary gauges were added up high to keep an eye on the warmed-over engine, which, incidentally, was sold without a warranty simply because Shelby knew what kind of guys were buying such an animal. No surprise there. This car also has a spotless trunk still outfitted with a big subwoofer kit; hey, with 620 dyno-proven rear-wheel horsepower on tap, curb weight is almost irrelevant. OK, the good stuff: the original 4-cam GT500 engine is treated to a giant supercharger, a Kenne-Bell Whipple unit that out-performs the GT500 unit by a substantial margin. It makes full boost before you can get your foot on the floor and theres not a tire made that can keep it hooked to the pavement. Theres special tuning involved, an upgraded Borla exhaust system, oversized coolers, and everything else that youd need to make a reliable big-horsepower daily driver. The suspension got all of Ford Racings best stuff thats up to the rigors of all that horsepower and the binders are giant Baer 6-piston discs with upsized cross-drilled rotors. Trick Alcoa aluminum wheels were designed just for this car and carry 255/35/20 front and 275/35/20 rear Pirelli rubber. Shelby built only a limited number of these each year and they trade hands very, very rarely, so finding one on the open market is an extraordinary opportunity. Still the nastiest Mustang you can own, this one is fully documented and ready to rock. In addition to everything above, this car comes with all the stock takeoff parts. That includes wheels, stock super charger, stock takeoff parts This also come with a Viper alarm that has a one mile range. Lastly, this baby has lived in a climate controlled garage and been started at regular intervals when not driven. Fluids changed yearly and tread on tires is like new.

Typically when we report on the findings of an investigation from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it's because the government body has discovered a safety issue and prescribed a recall. In this case, however, NHTSA has closed an investigation into a reported performance deficit without ever getting to the recall stage.
The issue revolves around the Ford F-150 - specifically those equipped with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine - of which some 360,000 were built in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 model years. After receiving an initial 95 complaints, NHTSA opened an investigation last May - almost a year ago - into the reported issue of reduced engine power under hard acceleration. The agency has since received a total of 525 such complaints, and Ford itself reported receiving over 4,000.
Together, NHTSA and Ford determined that the problem resulted from cylinders misfiring, an issue itself stemming from water getting into the charge air cooler (CAC) mated to the turbochargers. In particularly humid or rainy conditions, water was found to get into the CAC, causing some of the cylinders to misfire, which in turn triggered the ECU to disable those cylinders in order to protect the catalytic converter from damage.
Now that we've finally seen the 2015 Ford Mustang, it's fun to go back and look at the spy shots we spent months pouring over, trying to dissect what was under all the camouflage. For the most part, Ford did a good job of concealing the car from spy photographers, and it released a video showing how much work went into doing so.
As crude as the Mustang's camo looked, all of the hard plastic, foam, vinyl and ratchet straps were actually created and put in place by a specific design team. The whole idea was to hide the car's identity, but it certainly ended up acting as a magnet for attention, too. According to Ford's press release, it took less than an hour for spy shots to appear online after the car was taken on public roads for the very first time - this is likely in reference to our first official spy shots of the Mustang from June, shown in the gallery below.
Scroll down for a press release and video, which shows footage of the 2015 Ford Mustang testing with minimal camouflage. This is probably the same track session where we got our first look at the Mustang's face back in August.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of the world great automotive gatherings. So, it was the perfect event for Ford to give the refreshed 2015 Focus ST its world debut in front of a loving public. It even surprised us with a new diesel-powered version, as well.
The Blue Oval really put its focus on making the ST a better driver for this refresh. It left its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder alone to still pump out a respectable 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The changes like a retuned front suspension, electric power steering and improved interior made the hot hatch an even better place to spend time behind the wheel.
To prove that the Focus ST is still as potent as ever, Ford set up a one-on-one race up the Goodwood Hill. But instead of putting the two cars side-by-side, former Stig from Top Gear UK, Ben Collins, piloted the real model up the course, and his rival drove the virtual version in Gran Turismo 6. The two hot hatches set off at the same time to see whether reality could beat the virtual world, and the finish was actually extremely close. Scroll down to watch the video and find out the winner of this battle at Goodwood.
