Every year the Coronado Naval Base in San Diego opens it gates to thousands of car lovers. Ground-pounding vintage Trans Am racers and other delicious cars take to a makeshift track on an active naval air base. Just be wary of the occasional F18 Super Hornet takeoff.


Motor Trend Tests The Outer Limits of the 850 hp Shelby Mustang GT500 Super Snake

The standard Shelby Mustang GT500 has a frankly staggering power rating of about 650 horsepower. That’s as much power as you’d get from a Ferrari Enzo in a car that costs a hair under $55,000. That should be more than enough power for any human being that doesn’t have an F1 super license.

But human beings aren’t always rational creatures. For those that require even more go from their Mustangs, there’s the Shelby GT500 Super Snake, which has an insane 850 horsepower. As Carlos Lago puts it in this video that comes courtesy of Motor Trend, that’s a slightly tuned Mustang GT for each rear wheel. Is it too much? We’ll put it this way; Shelby might want to look into a better brake package.
