Dubbed as the ‘American muscle car’, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT made its mark when American racing legend, Carroll Shelby, drove this car showcasing its tremendous power and aggressiveness. The latest version of this memorable vehicle is the 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 equipped with a 5.4-liter V8 engine with 540 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.
With these already impressive specifications, Karl Geiger, a Munich-based US car specialist, went a step further and showed how some small modifications can produce a breathtaking transformation. Engineers at GeigerCars worked on the American muscle car and added a 3.3-liter compressor to its 5.4-liter aluminum engine block to increase pressure. With larger throttle valves, a larger Whipple supercharger, an upgraded modified injection system and machined cylinder heads, the 2010 GeigerCars Ford Mustang Shelby GT’s output is now an incredible 799 hp with a 697 lb-ft torque.
