2013 Ford Shelby GT500 into a powerful sports car and launched by the Ford Motor Company, has a design classic and sporty with the support of a machine capable of producing power. 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 also supported feature that provides ease of driving a new sports car. Chevrolet and Ford always provides a powerful sports cars and high quality 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 is a step test to prove the qualities of this Ford sports car with its competitors. Competition between Chevrolet and Ford began when Chevrolet unveiled the latest sports car is the Chevy Camaro ZL1, Chevy sports car is capable of producing power up to 580 Hp. It did not take long, Ford released the latest sports car is 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 as opposed to the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. New Ford Shelby GT500 delivers more power than the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is 662 hp. So, the Ford Shelby GT500 is the most powerful sports car made in the United States and the challenger of Chevy Camaro ZL1.
Motortrend has conducted tests on 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, the following are the results of tests conducted Motortrend on the latest Ford sports car:
For the official first drive of the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, we headed to Atlanta, where we taste the super Stang ‘latest on the track and out on the open road. Rolling along the highway, the extra horsepower and torque Ford GT500 is not so noticeable as you might think. For example, in the teeth of about 80 mph, turning about 1500 rpm, it’s a complete pussycat, with minimal engine and exhaust noise. No, it’s up to the 80′s the fun part. Hammer it from a stop and a rush of 631 lb-ft swallow your body, pinning his head and torso to optional Recaro buckets as $ 1595 GT500 blast from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds less, on to the quarter-mile time of 11 , 6 seconds at 125.7 mph. For context, the previous GT500, which issued a relatively pedestrian 550 hp and 510 lb-ft, it takes 4.1 seconds to reach 60 and 12.4 seconds at 115.8 mph to eclipse the quarter, while the ZL1 is required 3.8 and 12 , 1 @ 117.4, respectively. Great strength with great improvements to the GT500. Beware of great power: too much with the throttle, and the tire will quickly resemble burnt toast. Fortunately, the obscene power of the new GT500 is really in control.
So how do you control the 662 horse power? The launch control. First seen on the Boss 302, the new launch control system on Ford GT500 has been upgraded to keep RPM, a feature that is intended for more advanced drag racers. Set the desired RPM app tracks through the screen, flat foot throttle, quickly lift off the clutch – but do not throw or step over – and slip clutch system and the feed in relation to available traction. You can activate the launch control at any time by pressing the button on the dash, but is only active once the vehicle to operating temperature. During testing, the launch of the intervention traction control provide the most rapid and repetitive runs. Test team to be careful to get enough traction (a reasonable concern when you have 662 horsepower), but the new system makes it possible to launch easy: simply dial in the revs, release the clutch, and survive.
One of the properties we saw during the Ford Shelby GT500 test drive is that the coupling is much more rigid than the Mustangs in cooking class, but it is not difficult to operate. Upgraded to handle the increased torque, the clutch is 10 mm larger than that in 2012 Ford Shelby GT500, with stronger springs and higher-performance friction materials. Furthermore, the clutch housing has been strengthened and there is a 33 percent increase in the coupling clamp. Ford also makes the point that a higher involvement in the absorption of the clutch pedal and shifter from the revised 6-speed Tremec manual. Approximately equal to that in the 2012 GT500, but with each component increased, Tremec gear tweak offers powerful and an output shaft with the setup of new 40-tooth. As a result, some notchiness shifter is missing, which makes it easier to get in and out of gear, but you still can not rush it. The GT500 now comes with a fiber one-piece driveshaft carbon. Another key to crack the 200-mph barrier, according to Ford, the driveshaft is 14 pounds lighter, helping to reduce the rotational inertia, noise, and vibration, while increasing durability.
The track where we really have to experience how the new Ford GT500 is different from the previous car. While older cars tend to show a front-end push, 2013 turn-in display shelves, front Goodyears really bite into the asphalt, and responds quickly to steering input, allowing you to be more aggressive with the throttle mid-corner applications. In comfort mode there is little body roll, but the car still sports a nice and flat. With all the extra power and torque, easy to kick the back out, but – unlike the old car – when you get loose in the back of the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, the slide is progressive. Last-gen car will start to leave, then suddenly disappeared. The 2013 is much more predictable, making it easier to modulate exactly how far you want to swing out the back.
During our testing the figure-eight, the GT500 posted an impressive 24.2 g email@example.com result, managing an equally impressive 0.98 g (avg) Lateral acceleration. Even better: Comparing the new Shelby to its predecessor, testing director Kim Reynolds declared it, “simply a much Easier car to drive.” Part of the improvement is attributable to the Torsen differential – another piece of the SVT Performance Package – that provides a full-time torque-sensing system to help optimize traction and handling. Still, the old car, while more of a handful, was no slouch, edging its successor with a figure-eight firstname.lastname@example.org ??time of 24.0 g and a maximum lateral acceleration of 1:01 g (avg).
“You have to countersteer enough at times, but do not overdo it and you could easily be in front of the tail; it never broke very quickly so that your arms have to race to catch him,” added Reynolds. “That said, you have to respect the rule here, you really can not slam down the pedal bends It should go out to eat.”
To achieve a monumental increase in performance GT500, Ford’s first engine capacity increase of 5.4 liter to 5.8 liter. Because the thinner cylinder walls, plasma transferred arc Ford deployed wire-cylinder ship coating technology, replacing the old arm-iron design. Liners improve the performance and durability while also reducing friction and reduce heat transfer. The cylinder head has been cross-drilled into the engine block, add the 3 mm cooling. Oil-squirters have been directed to the bottom of the piston to help keep heat in check. Ford’s extensive back the entire cooling system of GT500 to beat the heat better. All of the Ford GT500 has air conditioning costs with its own separate heat exchanger fed by a separate coolant pump. If you choose $ 2995 Track Package SVT, you also get a cooler and pump-shaft, transmission coolers, and cooling the engine-oil-to-external air.
Internal engine of 5.8 liter 2013 Ford Shelby GT500′s all been redesigned or modified. A cast aluminum oil pan allows for complex shapes, and now holds 8.5 liters. A gasket tray / pan windage windage hold below 5 percent, even at high RPM. Forged steel crankshaft recently developed in an effort to handle the extra pressure on the low end. A great engine needs more fuel, so that the injectors have been increased from 47 lb / hr to 55 lb / hr. To provide all the juice, two 5.0-liter Mustang is added to the pump, capable of pumping 79 gallons per hour. Force feeding a new 5.8-liter is a new 2.3L Eaton Roots-type supercharger that has a displacement increase over the 5.4-liter and use a small pulley at 69 mm compared to 72 mm.
To help achieve high-speed 200-mph top goal Ford set for the new Ford GT500, have made significant modifications to the front end of the car. Each opening has been modified or enlarged to minimize drag, maximize downforce and improve cooling. The most obvious change is the new front splitter and the downforce generating front grille. Ford says the changes have resulted in 14-percent reduction in drag and 66-percent increase in front-end downforce – it is important to get the GT500 to claim his 200-mph Vmax, which engineers personally promised they would give Carroll Shelby.
To be the whole vehicle performance, Ford GT500 should stop as well as it accelerates, and more than a job, remove the 60 mph in 101 feet (the GT500 previously required 104 feet, ZL1 required 108 feet). The test team reported that the brakes started to smell after a few hard stops, but they do not feel faded look. Performance Package check box to bring you a larger front stabilizer bar (34.6 mm – an increase of 1.4 mm), which helps keep the GT500 flat, minimizing body roll during cornering. The front brake has a large 15-inch Brembo vented rotors and Brembo 6-piston aluminum front calipers with high performance friction pads. Rear brakes are 13.8-inch (2-inches larger than the Mustang GT) with single-piston calipers. -New front brake dustshields help protect part of the heat while providing maximum cooling airflow.
