The new 5.8 Liter aluminum block V-8 in the 2013 Mustang GT500 is officially the most powerful naturally aspirated V-8 in the world. It produces a whopping 662 horsepower as well 600 lb-ft of torque. Ford built the most powerful engine they could come up with. The only thing that can slightly compare to this car performance wise is the Camaro ZL1 but at a mere 580 horsepower it is still a ways away from the sheer power of the mustang.
As for performance numbers, this beast produces a 0 – 60 time of 3.5 seconds and Ford was able to get it up to 200 MPH. This is unheard of for a muscle car and shows you what modern technology has gotten us. The price tag could be considered just as astonishing at only $55,000 dollars. This would be the first time 55k has ever come close to getting somebody a 200 MPH car. Ford seems to go bigger and bigger each year, and this one is no exception.
