Harkening back to the form of the infamous Eleanor, the new Mustang GT500 is classic muscle in a modern package. This is a production Mustang that will do more than 200 miles per hour straight off the showroom floor. Thanks to 662 supercharged V-8 ponies under the hood, at the time of its release it was the most powerful U.S. production engine ever. This kind of power may seem excessive, but it is relatively tame when driven with prudence and even achieves fair mileage figures. Obviously anyone who buys a GT500 is not looking for a little savings at the pump, its purpose is about what your right foot can accomplish. Less than 12 second quarter-mile times, 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and the exhilaration of so much force pushing you back in your seat you may have to enhance your workout just to hang on. Straight line fun may be its forte, but give the GT500 its due at any road course as well.
