2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Performance
Make sure you’ve got your drool rag ready. In order to get its maximum 662 horsepower, a supercharged 5.8-liter V8 is the powertrain of choice for the Shelby GT500, along with a six-speed manual transmission. If that isn’t enough for you, the GT500 reaches 60 mph from a standstill in a mere 4 seconds, which is quicker than both the Camaro ZL1 and the Challenger SRT8.
2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Efficiency
No car is perfect. The Achilles’ heel for the 2014 Shelby GT500 just happens to be its fuel economy, which comes in at an EPA-estimated 18 mpg combined.
2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Interior
While the 2014 Shelby’s interior is a bit on the plain side, it’s leather- and faux-suede-trimmed seats and ambient lighting, the color of which you can choose out of seven different options, add a touch of class that helps remind you that you’re in a top-of-the-line Mustang. Ford’s Sync voice activation features help you operate the car’s audio, phone, and navigation systems with ease, while the optional Recaro sport seats cushion you around sharp turns. The back seat is cramped, as you would expect in a sport car, but the cargo space in the trunk is decent.

Antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, and side-impact airbags are all standard safety features for the Shelby, helping it achieve a four star safety rating (out of a possible five) in government crash tests.
