Beware. This is Speed Phenom. haha.

Some cool track & drag strip footage starting at 5.35.

Admin edit:

Some interesting stats regarding GT500 testing:
  • 10 prototype GT500 were tracked during development
  • 53 foot semi trailer was used to carry parts and tires
  • Testing was performed at many tracks, including VIR, Sebring, NOLA , GingerMan, Grattan, Buttonwillow
  • More than 280 sets of tires recycled after 6,700 high speed laps

That was a great video. Those Ford guys made that engine tear-down look easy. 1-2-3-4-5 done !

That was a great video. Helped that Speed Phenom didn't talk that much... I thought the tear down would be of a tracked and well used motor tho and not a new one.

No thanks. I don’t like Duramax.
I am a Powerstroke guy.
I have a built 7.3 obs crew cab that is almost as fast as my 5.0

I used to be entirely a GM guy but I've become nonbiased. My duramax runs low 10s and with some suspension work might could dip in the 9s but since I'm getting the new gt500 I've decided to sell it! Nothing like running a hellcat redeye and gapping it in a 3/4 ton truck. I have big plans for the car though.

That is very fast.
I assume it is still street legal?
