Would you ever spend $70k for a Ford Mustang? Other than the completely bonkers Shelby GT500, the simple answer is no. You see the Shelby is a collector car that puts out enough power to pull full-grown adults back into their Momma’s womb, whereas this new Roush Stage 3 Mustang simply doesn’t. More so than […]

This video from SVT Performance shows a current-generation GT500 doing a full-bore lap of the Nurburgring, surely a ride any car enthusiast would want to tag along for.

The 2014 Steeda GT500 package improves the most powerful Mustang ever with an extremely aggressive, but in the same time smooth, overall appearance. Show More Summary
We just recently saw our first spy shots of the next-gen hi-po Ford Mustang slated to replace the Shelby GT500, but now we're getting our first look - and listen - of prototypes captured on video.
