Throwback Video: Shelby GT500 Breaks Dyno

The Mustang Shelby GT500 is one of the marque’s most spectacular cars.

The variant shown here has 500 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, stock. There’s no telling what modifications this thing has, but watch what happens.

It isn’t terribly clear in the video, however you can see the car jump up a few inches, and sparks fly everywhere.

The car lands and it appears that the rear suspension has collapsed, but it seems to be okay otherwise.

It really says a lot about the sheer power that this thing produces (or the utter shoddiness of the dyno).
