The 2011 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is now more powerful

Approximately a month ago, Chevrolet showed us the 550+ hp 2012 Camaro ZL 1 which raised a lot of arguments among fans. Now Ford is ready to withdraw all the attention by showing us the 2013 Shelby GT500 that churns out massive 600+ hp.
This car will be the considered a massive attack in the horsepower battle. The boost comes from increasing the GT500's current powerplant from 5.4-liters to 5.8-liters from the 2013 model year.
The 2011 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is powered by an all-new aluminum-block 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine, which produces 550 hp and 510 ft-lb of torque, a 10 hp increase versus the 2010 model. The new mill is also 102 lbs lighter than its precursor and this means it delivers a better power-to-weight ratio, improves fuel economy, acceleration and steering accuracy.
The present GT500 sprints from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds. With the added power, the GT500's 0-60 run could reach the 3-second range, with a 12-second quarter mile sprint. Top speed would be 190 mph (306 km/h).
Changes are made on the exterior as well. The GT500 will have the addition of LED running lights and tail lights. This car makes you wonder.
