Motor Trend Aims for 200 Mph in the 2013 Shelby GT 500

Ford loaned the gang over at Motor Trend a new 2013 Shelby GT 500 coupe to see if Motor Trend could match the 200 mph speed for claims to have hit in Italy. Motor Trend chose Chrysler's proving grounds in Arizona and five-mile oval track for the top speed run. Race driver Randy Pobst was behind the wheel and high-speed runs.

Due to the heat and altitude at the Arizona test track, Motor Trend was unable to hit the magic 200 mph number. However, they came close with the top speed of 196 mph. Motor Trend figures at lower elevation and cooler temperatures the car is most definitely good for 200 mph.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
