litre supercharged V8
speed auto and manual RWD
The 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang is powered by a supercharged
and intercooled 5.4-liter dual overhead cam V-8 engine which
develops 540 horsepower and 510 foot-pounds of torque. The car's
aluminum power dome hood not only adds to the Shelby's appearance,
it helps cool the engine through a functional hood extractor.
"The 2010 Shelby GT500 demonstrates Ford's continuing
commitment to high-performance vehicles," said Derrick Kuzak,
Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. "In
addition to the numerous performance and refinement improvements
inside and out, the 2010 Shelby GT500 is an estimated 2 miles
per gallon more fuel efficient on the highway."
Ford's Special Vehicle Team used the gains made on the 40th
anniversary edition Shelby
GT500KR "King of the Road" Mustangs as the performance starting
point and built from there. The design team, with a nod to the
original Shelby Cobras from the 1960s, takes those design cues
even further with nuanced improvements in both the coupe and
convertible, each of which boasts a more-refined interior.
The 2010 Shelby GT500 includes several unique standard features
SYNC: The voice-activated hands-free in-car communication and
entertainment system developed by Ford and Microsoft. The system
fully integrates most Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones and digital
media players, providing customers hands-free cell phone and
music selection capabilities – plus new 911 Assist and Vehicle
Health Report provided with no monthly fees.
911 Assist: When a phone is properly paired, turned on and connected
to SYNC, the system is ready to assist in placing a call directly
to a local 911 emergency operator in the event of an air bag-deploying
accident. The key advantage of SYNC 911 Assist is speed, as
calls are placed directly to local 911 operators.
Vehicle Health Report (VHR): SYNC gathers relevant information
from the major vehicle control modules and packages diagnostic
data into a usable format in a matter of minutes. That data
packet is sent to Ford via an 800-number automatically dialed
using the customer's paired and operable mobile phone.
Ambient Lighting System with MyColor allows drivers to customize
the interior lighting of the vehicle to suit their mood. The
enhanced MyColor system features seven base colors – ice blue,
purple, blue, orange, red, white and green. Customers also can
create 125 custom colors by mixing the red-green-blue palette.
