How powerful? Try 760 horsepower from a 5.2-liter supercharged V8. Yes, that's very, very powerful indeed.

The GT500 dates back to 1967, when it was an aftermarket modification of a stock Mustang performed by Carroll Shelby's fledgling operation.

Now, it's a factory option. The car you see here also has the Carbon Fiber Track Pack, a $12,000 option that includes the big wing and front splitter.

But the most notable point is these carbon-fiber wheels. They save 15 pounds each per corner, despite being a half-inch wider than the standard wheels!

The car is far more aggressive looking than Ford's other Shelby, the GT350. That big front snout allows 50% more airflow.

And the brakes are massive, too. 16.5 inches in diameter!

The GT500 is truly a monster, outrageously powerful, but despite that, it's still a modern Mustang, which means easy to drive easy to look at.
