Nelson Racing Shelby TT GT500 Code Red image

You don’t get the name ‘muscle car’ for nothing and that must have stimulated Shelby and Nelson Racing engines to create this prototype Mustang GT500.

The engine got a pair of twin turbo’s resulting in a stunning 1,000 bhp output. When Nelson racing does not directly ring a bell we can tell you they’ve done great tuning jobs before with among them the MT900S which was based on a Mosler.


Yes, that’s insane. The vicious exhaust note alone is reason enough to love this car, but once those turbos spool, the pandemonium in the cabin is…well, watch the video and see for yourself.
