MT came very close to 200 mph

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.
