Post Take A Hot Lap at VIR In The 2011 Shelby GT500



When you dream the Mustang dream, sometimes you get to dream big. As big as, say, the 550-horsepower 2011 Shelby GT500.

A recent track test at the Virginia International Raceway was captured in glorious YouTube video to help fuel those Pony daydreams.

The write-up by Car & Driver in this month's edition wasn't that glowing. Complained of body roll, shifting issues, tires not lasting, and that the iron block was dealing with heat soak that sucked power away.

But in all honesty, I always think of Mustangs as straightline cars anyways.

Must have been a write up on the older GT500. The 2011 has an aluminum block.
