These days you can buy an open-top variation of almost any car. From Aston Martin’s Virage to Renaults baby Wind, there are many options to choose from if you fancy a slice of alfresco motoring. But what if your are a muscle car manic wanting all the BHP of the drag strip, whilst having the blue sky overhead? Shelby may just have something for you.
Welcome to the most powerful Mustang ever produced. Just like its coupe counterpart, the GT500 Convertible churns out a biblical 650BHP from a glorious 5.8 litre V8. That isn’t where these big numbers end, oh no… 600lb-ft of torque rips up the tarmac and Shelby have had to limit the top speed to 155MPH in a bid to save the roof from blowing away.
It is the worlds most powerful production V8 in the world and someone took a tin-opener to it!
