Rumors: Shelby GT500 1000 HP twin-turbo image

According to the MustangsDaily.com website Carroll Shelby is working on a few new super-cars. One of these could be an extreme $100.000 Shelby GT500 5.4 liter V8 engine producing 1000+ hp mated to a 6-speed paddle shifter.
This will be the most radical Mustang to come from Shelby.
To be able to manage such power, the 1000 hp Shelby GT500 will have other extreme modifications – I’m talking about extreme breakes, developed by the American tuner in collaboration with Baer. (• Shelby/Baer 6-piston caliper front and rear brake system ). Also the suspension will be unusual – Shelby will use Ford Racing suspension w/ adjustable dampers and Eibach adjustable coilover suspension.
