2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500: Launch Control
Ford’s social branch has released another YouTube video featuring the awesome new 2013 GT500. This time, showing off it’s Lauch Control feature, narrated by the Ford and SVT engineers who developed it. Talk about a terrible job. All day at a track, with your buddies, giddy with excitement, with a fleet of 662 horsepower Mustangs that you are being “forced” to abuse and race and drag – AND GETTING PAID TO DO IT??!!??!!?
Anyway, take a look at the lack of tire carnage as the Launch Control keeps the RPMs down so the Mustang can shoot from a stop to 100 mph is something ridiculously close to 8 seconds. No other production car can even come close the the GT500 package of pricing, performance, quality, warranty, speed, sexiness, options, raw power, and sound. Not to mention the Shelby heritage. If you have the means, I highly recommend you picking one up.
