The hotly awaited 2013 Ford Mustang GT500 has been spotted and captured on video making laps around the famed Nurburgring in Germany. The car sounds 100% bad ass when wailing along, that is for sure. Since the track was wet and it was raining on the day this video was shot, there have been no proclamations on lap times or performance numbers by Ford. You can bet if it ran as good or better than the ZL1, Ford PR would have been all over telling the world, but the rain, at least on this day prevented that from happening.
Of course the huge buzz around this car centers on the fact that Ford says it will hit the streets with 662hp and 632 lb/ft of torque, numbers that on paper are superior by a bunch to the new ZL1 Camaro. The guys who wear Ford blue footie pajamas and their sworn enemies in the bow tie print boxers have been lobbing poo at one another since the GT500 was announced. At least now there is a physical manifestation of the car to stir up the masses, rather than some numbers on a page.
When both of these things are in the same place at the same time in 2013, it is going to be WAR!
