2011 LA: 2013 Ford Mustang, Boss 302 and Shelby GT500 hang out in LA

Ford had a lot of anticipation building up for the new 2013 Mustang, with many of us thinking that it was going to be a completely new design. And although the new 2013 Ford Mustang was just fully revealed today at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, the new 2013 Mustang looks to be more like mid-cycle refresh. Either way, the new Mustang looks better than ever.

The changes are also more than just skin deep. The GT’s 5.0L gets slightly reworked to punch out 420hp, up from 412. Additionally, the optional automatic transmission is now equipped with Ford’s SelectShift, which allows drivers to shift their own gears.

Along with the base 2013 Ford Mustang came some new special editions as well. The 2013 Ford Mustang also got a special Boss 302 package that pays homage to the original 1970 model Powered by the GT’s same 5.0L V8, the Boss 302 gets reworked to produce 444hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. To add to the package, the Boss 302 Mustang gets a unique yellow paint scheme with Boss 302 vinyl badges.

Lastly, the new 2013 Shelby Mustang GT500 was also fully revealed today at the show. Weighing in at just 3,850lbs, the new Shelby Mustang GT500 gets a revised 5.8L supercharged V8, which is good for a whopping 650hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. No performance figures were released for the GT500, but we could expect it to post some serious numbers, further proving the car’s performance value per dollar.
