2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 vs 2013 Boss 302 Road test Video Review

Posted by Yulius purnomo heri s on Saturday, August 17, 2013

2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 vs 2013 Boss 302 Road test and Video Compare, Ford of Canada, the racetrack seemed like the most obvious place to test its 2014 Mustangs, including the Shelby GT500, the Boss 302, the V6 Coupe with a track pack and a convertible with a 5.0L V8. And Ford couldn’t have found a nicer track than Calabogie Motorsports Park about 50 minutes west of Ottawa.

Shelby GT500 vs Boss 302
Here the wide ribbon of smooth asphalt snakes its way through some 20 turns over 5.05 kilometres of countryside to make for one of the most challenging, and prettiest, road courses in the country. It’s the Augusta of racetracks, challenging enough to make most cars and drivers sweat before leaving the paddock.


The 2014 Shelby GT500 is a hoary enough beast to make most of the En-Track Experience driving instructors sweat on this warm summer’s day, too. The car’s 662 horsepower and 631 lb.-ft. of torque is astonishing — numbers more suited to a NASA missile than a Ford coupe. It is more power than most auto writers gathered here on this day will have witnessed in all four of their previous test cars combined. It is more horsepower in one car than anything I have ever driven. It is a small version of the shuttle Endeavor made to look street legal with the addition of seats and wheels and somehow, I am not supposed to crash it. It is the most powerful production V8 in the world. Did I mention that Calabogie also has an impenetrable cement wall flanking the end of one long straight?

It is here, on the long, fast straights of Calabogie that the Shelby shines brightest. With new cooling, aerodynamics, brakes, suspension and exhaust for 2014, the Shelby gives off a deliciously mild whine as the supercharged 5.8L thunders out power to the special Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar rear tires. The sound from the large oval exhaust pipes is as good as Matt Kenseth’s Taurus stock car. It is pure bliss.

The tires, backed by a stiffened suspension and better aerodynamics, do a good job of keeping understeer at bay, and the traction control system will step in to correct any that might creep in. The $61,699 Shelby, weighing 1,750 kilograms, does tend to dip its nose under hard braking at top speed, which of course also raises the rear end, so it’s ultra important to settle this car before initiating any turns at high speed. Fortunately, the car is quick to respond to inputs, comes quickly off the Brembo brakes that are 55 per cent better at controlling fade, and has such long gear ratios that first gear can reach 100 km/h and second can go to 160km/h. Third is the most we ever needed from the Tremec six-speed manual at Calabogie. The Shelby is not terribly difficult to manage with all that’s happening but does require intense focus, as well as patience because the power band is nearly limitless. In my zero to 100 km/h runs, the Shelby registered 3.8 seconds, but 3.7 seconds is possible. An optional Track Package that adds an external engine oil cooler, along with coolers for the differential and transmission, seems sensible given the prodigious heat this car produces.

So with all that power, and an available torsen limited-slip rear differential, the Shelby should have been the most fun at the track, right?

Oddly, no, that honour goes to the $48,799 Boss 302 Mustang with only 444 horsepower from its specially-tuned V8. It seems odd to say “only” 444 horsepower, and even stranger to say the Shelby — a Camaro ZL1 and Corvette fighter — wasn’t my favourite weapon, given its enormous performance and track capabilities. But the Boss, which receives projector headlamps and a Track Apps feature as standard equipment for 2014, feels so much more manageable, so much more sensible on the track.

The suspension, steering, clutch, brakes and tires of the Boss all work together in such perfect balance that the car delivered consistent feedback and lap times, making for one of the most satisfying performances I have felt at Calabogie. The tight shifter always landed in the right gear and the pedals were ideal for heel, toe shifting. Where the Shelby felt like a dominant lion, the Boss felt like a cheetah, more nimble, more forgiving. No wonder one of the owners of Calabogie bought a Boss Mustang for himself — the car is perfectly set up for track time, yet can be docile and civil on the street around town.

The $44,299 5.0L Mustang Convertible with 420 horsepower, or the $23,999 V6 Coupe with a 305 horsepower V6, are equally suitable for life on the street, yet they too will deliver some impressive fun should some track time come available.

No matter which Mustang is driven, each will become a different car on the track, where the car’s racing and performance roots will be fully revealed. Just be wary of any Shelby or Boss filling the rear-view mirror.

2010 Ford Mustang V6 Premium Road test Video Review

Posted by Yulius purnomo heri s


2010 Ford Mustang V6 Premium Video Review and engine Specs, Price Used TMV from $15,362. All Features and Specs : 4.0L V6 engine, Manual transmission, Up to 18 cty/26 hwy mpg , Bluetooth, iPod input, Satellite radio, Side/Curtain Airbags, Stability Control  ,Traction Control, Navigation System, DVD player.

What's New for 2010 Ford Mustang V6 Premium
The 2010 Ford Mustang puts a bounce in its gallop with rejuvenated styling inside and out. It also boasts larger wheels, standard stability control and more power for the V8-powered GT model. The Mustang V6, on the other hand, is saddled with an ancient V6 that's intimately related to the venerable Ford Ranger pickup's optional 4.0-liter power plant. It continues to sell well because of its eye-catching retro styling and considerably lower cost, but in our opinion, there are simply better choices. The Mustang V6's base price makes us think of numerous other desirable sporty cars we'd rather spend that money on -- the Honda Civic Si and Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T, to name a couple. However, we will confess that the Mustang V6 convertible would be our rental ragtop of choice, easily beating out the monumentally boring Chrysler Sebring.

2010 Ford Mustang V6 Premium Road test Video Review
2010 Ford Mustang V6 Premium 
The 2010 Ford Mustang is available as a coupe or convertible in four trim levels: V6, V6 Premium, GT and GT Premium. The base V6 starts with 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, cruise control, air-conditioning, full power accessories and a CD audio system with an auxiliary audio jack. The V6 Premium adds upgraded 17-inch wheels, leather upholstery, a power driver seat, Sync, color-adjustable gauges, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, upgraded interior trim and a Shaker 500 stereo system with a six-CD changer.

Power And Peformance
The rear-wheel-drive 2010 Ford Mustang comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission, and a five-speed automatic is optional. The Mustang V6 is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 that produces 210 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque, while the Mustang GT boasts a 4.6-liter V8 with 315 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque (335 lb-ft on premium fuel, which is not required). Expect a 0-60-mph sprint in the low 5-second range for the GT model, with the V6 trailing its brawnier brother by a considerable margin.

Interior features
The 2010 Mustang's cabin retains its characteristic retro design while adding significantly higher-quality materials to the mix. The result won't fool you into thinking you're driving a luxury coupe, but it's a notably nicer interior than we're used to seeing in a Mustang. Major controls are simple to operate and the seats are comfortable, though the base seats could use more lateral support (the GT's seats have more aggressive bolstering). The optional Sync system provides useful voice-integration technology for music and Bluetooth functions. Both the Mustang coupe and the convertible offer seating for four, and average-size adults can fit in back, but they'll be a bit cramped. Trunk capacity is decent, with 12.3 cubic feet in the coupe and 9.7 in the convertible.

2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Video Reviews

Posted by Yulius purnomo heri s


Youtube trends vehicles - 2014 Mustang Shelby GT500. The 2014 Trend vehicles of the Year is one of the quickest American two doors ever built. It drives like a sports car, eager and agile and instantly responsive. 
2014 Ford Shelby GT500 REVIEW
Believe it or not, such descriptions of the Shelby GT500 aren't hyperbole. Recently updated along with its convertible sibling, the GT500 packs a 662-horsepower V8 that's officially the most powerful eight-cylinder production engine ever made.

2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
Thanks in part to a TVS series 2300 (2.3-liter) supercharger that provides 14.0 psi of maximum boost, the 5.8-liter V8 is also able to crank out no less than 631 lb-ft of torque. An impressive 395 lb-ft are available just off idle at 1,000rpm, making the GT500 an ideal burnout machine, and more 90 percent of the car's torque is available in the 2,200 to 5,800 rpm range. Packing all of that muscle into the Shelby's updated body results in a top speed of 202 mph. The benchmark zero-to-60 mph sprint takes just 3.5 seconds, while the quarter-mile flies by in 11.8 seconds.

Don't think that the new V8 is a one-trick pony - rated at a respectable 15 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, it manages to avoid the gas-guzzler tax and is the most efficient engine with over 550 horsepower in America.

To bring this nearly two-ton beast to a stop, Ford installed a Brembo brake system that utilizes six-piston calipers in the front, along with larger front and rear rotors. Also part of the stopping equation are wheels and tires, to which the latest Shelby GT500 offers two sets of forged-aluminum wheels including a unique wheel for cars with the optional packages. The 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels are coupled with Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar G: 2 tires on all vehicle configurations.

when a vehicle sends 600 horsepower to the pavement through just two wheels, traction management becomes a serious concern, and Ford has dealt with the situation by adding more than just new gearing. A defeatable launch control system has been developed that allows drivers high levels of control, permitting specific rpm launch points to be chosen based on elevation, tire and street temperature and other variables. This system is fully unique to the SVT lineup and is incorporated into both the engine control and traction control systems.

SVT Performance Package
TORSEN® differential
19" (front) and 20" (rear) painted forged aluminum wheels
P265/40-19 (front) and P285/35-20 (rear) tires
Cockpit-adjustable Bilstein™ electronic dampers
SVT-tuned suspension with unique shocks and springs
