Evolution Performance of Aston, PA has put together a killer '07 Shelby GT500. Not content to simply make claims as to their Stang's formidable badassedness, the guys at Evolution brought it to the track, where it promptly ran the quarter in 11.81 sec at 120.9 mph.

The modifications made to the car were as follows:
  • JLT Cold Air Intake System
  • Custom Off-Road X-Pipe
  • Custom Exhaust System
  • 4.10 Gears
  • Evolution Performance Custom Tune using SCT Advantage III Software
  • Output: 500 rwhp, 503 lb-ft of torque
The car has since had 2.6" pulleys installed and currently makes 563 horsepower and 564 lb ft of torque. Both of those numbers are at the wheel, mind you. Evolution says that this is the first 11-second '07 GT500, but stay tuned -- the word from Evolution is that video of a 10-second run at Englishtown last weekend (post-pulley swap) should be on the web in the coming days. We'll be sure to follow-up when that happens.

For now enjoy the video we do have, and be sure to check out Evolution Performance's site, where they've got a great photo gallery, the video you see above, and video of a dyno session showing that the car made a tasty 500 rwhp before the pully swap we mentioned above. Hot stuff, indeed.

      "Evolution says that this is the first 11-second '07 GT500, but stay tuned..."

      A classic unintentional pun if ever there was one.

      I'll admit that I don't know a lot about drag racing, but just looking through my road and track road test summary shows a lot of cars that cost a lot more, and have more power running similiar times.

      mclaren F1 627 hp 11.6 1/4
      ferrari enzo 650 hp 11.1 1/4
      lamborghini murcielago 580 hp 12.0 1/4
      mercedes slr mclaren 617 hp 11.5 1/4
      porshe carrera gt 605 hp 11.3 1/4

      So, maybe in the world of drag racers this isn't that fast of a car, but the mods don't make it sound like a drag car, just a fast mustang gt500.

      Apparently, this Mustang ran mid-10s at Englishtown last weekend. We're waiting for the video.

      What kind of tires were on the car for this run?
      • 8 Years Ago
      I agree a car this powerful should produce far better runs, but if you pay attention in the video I think his 60' time must have been horrible. It jumps then starts moving. I think it must have been driver error.

      edit... nevermind, I'm a dumbass.... Ford GT is a little different than GT500!

      Good for them and all, but 563hp (at the wheels) to run a high 11 doesn't impress me at all. What a bloated tank.

      tO put this in perspective, SRTGurl famously whupped a dodge viper in her dodge neon srt4 with only $1500 in mods. She ran a 12.8. There are plenty of srt4s now in the in the 11's.

      High 11's Blah blah blah..........

      Just more proof that that POS is overpriced and overweight!
      Thank god I kept My Foxbody I run 11.70's with over a hundred RWHP Less than that fat turd.
      Wow first ones to go 11's Fuck I would have never wasted the video tape asswipes.

      Definetly a cool car with some bugs to work out. Maybe once the bugs are out, it will weigh less.
      • 8 Years Ago
      I was gonna say...I'd hope you'd be doing slightly better than an 11.8 at 560rwhp. His launch totally sucked though, so I am sure there is more in it. You can only make a boat anchor go so fast though.

      Here's to hoping that the Boss Mustang becomes a reality!

      I have no idea what you guys drive or how much experience you have at the tracks, but I think 11.81 1/4 is pretty darn impressive
