67 Shelby GT500 VS New Shelby GT500
Does the car need to be as original as possible, or a modern version can be cool as well. This is one of the most interesting questions when it comes to American muscle vehicles. One of the best muscle duels it is surly between 1967 Shelby GT500 and the 2010 Shelby GT500 – Patriot Edition. The ‘old’ one 1967 Shelby GT500 has 428 cu-in ‘Police Interceptor’ Pushrod V8 engine – medium rise 600 CFM Holley 4 barrel carburetors,
producing 355 horsepower and it goes from 0 – 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 132 mph (212 km/h). The 2010 Shelby GT500 Patriot Edition has 5.4 L DOHC supercharger V8 producing 540 Horsepower, going from 0 – 60 in 4.3 seconds, 1/4 mile in 12.6 seconds and a top speed of 179 mph (288 km/h). This is, for sure, going to be an epic battle between two extraordinary american muscle vehicles.
