Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
Shelby America is making a limited run of the Shelby 1000 with 1200 horsepower. Seems like they should call it the Shelby 1200 if you ask me but what the heck. I don’t see any information in product area at http://shelbyamerican.com/shelby1000.asp or the press release at http://shelbyamerican.com/news.asp but I am sure their marketing folks will figure out this web thing soon.
In the meantime, head on over to http://www.autoblog.com/2013/03/22/2013-shelby-1000-unleashes-its-1-200-horsepower-ahead-of-ny-show/ for the early press release and photos. Photo above courtesy of the fine folks at autoblog.com.
I wonder what jamming the pedal on 1200 horses feels like. Hold on to yer butts.
It's machinery like this that makes it possible to get up and go to work every day...
Especially if you are driving one of these. :-)
