Shelby 1000 Mustang doesn't come in 1000 hp flavor

Shelby American has unveiled one of the most powerful cars it has ever produced. The vehicle is called the Shelby 1000 and starts life as a standard 2012 Ford Shelby GT500. That standard car is taken to Shelby where it's transformed into either the Shelby 1000 street car or a Shelby 1000 S/C off-road track car.

The street version of the car gets 950 hp with the track version getting over 1100 hp. The engine gets new rods, pistons, and crank as well as an upgraded supercharger. The car also gets updated suspension and brakes. The completed version will cost about $200,000 with orders starting after the car debuts on April 5 at the New York International Auto Show.
