High-res photos: www.worldcarfans.com The 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 facelift is here and will be on display at the Ford stand at the Los Angeles auto show starting tomorrow. Under the hood is a supercharged 5.8 liter aluminum-block V8 that produces 650 hp (485 kW / 659 PS) and 600 lb-ft (813 Nm) of torque. That engine unit is coupled to an upgraded six-speed manual gearbox. For the aerodynamics, the front fascia and splitters have been modified to handle the loads required of the car's top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). The 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 comes fitted with 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inchers at the back wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar G:2 tires. Both a Performance Package and a Track Package are on offer with the Shelby GT500. The Performance Package includes Bilstein electronically-adjusted dampers while the Track Package features an external engine-oil cooler, rear differential cooler and transmission cooler to prevent over-heating on the track.
