  • Based on the iconic Ford Mustang, the Shelby GT is built to embarrass traditional sports cars on the racetrack and bully pony-car rivals on the street.

    As inappropriate and ludicrous as the concept the Ford Mustang Shelby GTR is – an all-American muscle car that's been treated to some European-like.

    Hennessey Performance offers several upgrade packages for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT Hennessey Performance is home to the largest.

    By October , Ford took control over engineering and purchasing. Ford Mustang production models and variants. The interior also included Shelby signature embroidered headrests and floor mats, along with other Shelby designed components. Some of us lead the pack. The seating position is just about spot on, although from there the car stills feels rather large.

    If you're going to test a racetrack-prepared performance car anywhere, it really should be on a racetrack. I just wish the circuit Ford's press department had chosen for the occasion wasn't the scariest, fastest circuit in the UK.

    Where it's been raining all morning. Some cars can put you on edge even before you've been given the key. It looks so tough, with its road-scraping front splitter and its gaping grille open wide like a great white's daggered mouth. It's also rare - the only one in the country - and everything about it, from its suspension settings to its semi-slick tyres, has been developed to work on a sun drenched Californian circuit, not a drizzly old English airfield.

    Ford Performance set out to build a Cayman GT4-chaser out of a big old muscle car - which is a bit like trying to make a metre hurdler out of my grandmother - and it's gone to town on the Mustang.

    Naturally, the springs and dampers are completely reworked while the tyres, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s, are just about as extreme as road-legal tyres get.

    The rears are so wide at mm that they almost meet in the middle, while the fronts, mm in width, appear as though they'd require the full strength of Hercules to apply any steering angle to.

    Those four fat tyres wrap around carbon fibre wheels. They save almost 6kg of unsprung weight at each corner, which is the sort of weight reduction chassis engineers fantasise about while their spouses are away.

    The rear seats have also been junked to save weight and, if you're really serious about setting PBs and purple sectors, you can do away with the air conditioning and sat-nav. Even so, the GTR still weighs 1,kg.

    Ford Performance has had a good hard look at the car's aero, too, adding a more prominent front splitter and a bigger rear wing to increase downforce. The vent in the bonnet - it's not a hood - the flat underbody panels, the rear diffuser and the vents in the wheel arches are all there to massage and direct the air over and around the car in the most efficient way possible.

    Flat-plane brilliant What really demonstrates Ford's ambition for this GTR, though, is the engine. For as long as there have been stars in the night sky American muscle cars have used big, weighty, relatively lazy cross-plane crank V8s that produce all the torque in the world, while nimble little European sports cars have used fizzy flat-plane crank V8s.
