Ford pulled back on the curtains on the 2013 Ford Mustang lineup at the Los Angeles Auto Show on Tuesday night, revealing tweaks in the design across and, for most models, added horses under the hood.
The most dramatic increase among the 2013 Ford Mustang lineup goes to the Shelby GT500, which sees about 100 extra horsepower added over last year’s model. Ford claims that the beastly supercharged 5.8 liter V8, with 650 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft of torque, can carry the GT500 to a top speed of 200-mph.
To handle all of that added power, Ford has tweaked just about everything in the Shelby GT500 to make it, well, manageable. One key addition to the 2013 Shelby GT500 is launch control, which should help you get the car off the line without spinning off into grass.
While the 2013 Ford Mustang V6 won’t be seeing any extra horsepower, it will at least be receiving a few cosmetic tweaks, including a new LED lighting system to, as Ford put it, give it a more “high-tech look”.
The Ford Mustang GT V8 will be seeing a few extra horsepower added. Ford says that the 2013 Ford Mustang GT will have 8 extra horsepower over last year’s model, bringing it up to a total of 420 horsepower.
