Here is a terrifying incident that was registered by an on-board GoPro camera placed inside a Shelby Cobra.

The whole thing took place at the Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond, California where the owner of a Shelby Cobra had a close encounter with death when something in the vehicle’s suspension or steering broke while he was going 130 miles per hour.

The Blue Oval has unveiled the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 right before its debut at the 2011 LA Auto Show.

The North American car maker says this new version, capable of reaching top speeds of 200+ mph is powered by a 5.8-litre engine which according to them is the most powerful production V8 in the world. This unit which features an aluminium block, produces 650 HP and 600 lb-ft of torque, and most of its parts have been redesigned in order to maximize performance.

MotorTrend wanted to see which of these three sports cars is faster on a straight line, so they created a drag race between the 2012 GTR vs the 2011 Corvette Z06 and the 2011 Shelby GT500.

For some of you the outcome could be predictable, but we won’t say more, except mention the specs for each of these performance coupes.

Shelby is expanding the 2012 Shelby GT350 lineup by adding a convertible version (the first since 1970) and two new body colours (Race Red and Kona Blue).

Under its skin the 2012 Shelby GT350 Convertible remains the same as the hard top model, meaning it will offer customers the ability of choosing between a normally aspirated 430 HP engine , or 525 HP and 624 HP supercharged units.

The crew from Hot Rod Magazine has created a comparison test between the 2011 Super Snake and the legendary Shelby Cobra, to see which of these two is the ‘baddest’ Shelby ever.

Even though they share the same badge, these models are years apart from each-other, and as the Shelby Cobra is a pure speed machine that does not feature the luxury and safety technology found in today’s modern sports cars, the 2011 GT500 Super Snake brings no less than 750 HP from its supercharged engine into the fight.

In this next video we have a tuned 2008 Shelby GT500 having a bad day on a dyno. And by having a bad day we mean engine detonation at 800 HP.

We all know that upgrading a car, especially when you’re pushing limits like 800 HP, means assuming some risks, and even though this Shelby GT500 has ‘behaved’ well in the past, through its many dyno runs, drag races and road course racing, this time it all went wrong.

As the YouTube video poster explains, the reason why this Shelby GT500 blew up on the dyno was a stretched Rod bolt.

In this next video Road & Track accelerates the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe side by side with the Shelby GT500 in a drag race that wants to show which of these American built cars is faster from 0 to 60 mph.

On paper the 6.2-litre V8 powering the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe produces 556 HP (415 kW) and 747 Nm (551 lb-ft of torque) of torque and spiriting from 0 to 60 mph takes 3.9 seconds.
