The good old boys at Motor Trend got their hands on not only a 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, but a Ford Police Interceptor and a Dodge Charger Police Pursuit, as well. Like any good, upstanding group of hooligans, the crew set to playing cops and robbers in the shadow of Detroit's vacant factories. With the big 662-horsepower, supercharged V8 Mustang left with no long spans of asphalt to stretch its legs, the two pursuit vehicles have a clear advantage. Watching the three go at each other is a decent way to blow five minutes of your work day.

Of course, this reminds me of a pearl of wisdom served up by my grandfather on the subject of evading the long arm of the law. He always said, "You can out run one, you might even out run two, but you'll never outrun that radio." Amen.

Check it out for yourself.

      How does one have access to a GT500, SHO, Charger, good enough film equipment, a decent locale and still end up with a snoozefest?

        Apparently pretty easy judging by this stinker. but didn't the GT500 sound nice?

      You can outrun Ford and Dodge, but you can't outrun Motorola.

      That was particularly pathetic, why can't Americans produce any footage worth viewing when it comes to cars. they are either cheesy or boring or in this case both. Motortrend should focus on writing good articles, something that has been seriously in their repertoire.

      The Engine revving on the Mustang was the most exciting part of the whole thing...

      For those of you who wonder what the footage would look like if Ken Block's Gymkhana film crew followed your grandma around for the day

      Was that supposed to funny? Anyone notice the Taurus nearly running into the sideways mustang as it tried to turn on the gravel covered pavement? I know it was a promo for the cars but it could not have been more pathetic!
