Video: Ford’s Shelby GT500 joins the 200 MPH club

Ford Shelby GT500 200MPH at Italy Nardo Ring

It seems that Ford wants to add their Shelby GT500 to the 200 MPH club. Ford has been putting its sports car through rigorous courses such as the Nürburgring and the Nardo Ring.

According to Chief Functional Engineer Kerry Baldori, when the new Shelby had  been tested for stability and safety at 220 mph, it passed with flying colors. They even conducted full ABS stops from that speed and the Ford took it with barely a hiccup.

That is very impressive considering other cars that can make such claims also cost upwards of almost 200,000 dollars.

Check out footage of the testing as well as Kerry in the video below.
