This rare Shelby GT500 Convertible is powered by a massive 428 cubic inch police interceptor V8 engine which was made by Ford and rated to generate around 360 horsepower. In reality, however, this monster can manage to scream out more than 400 hp! The engine is connected to an original, factory installed C6 automatic transmission that goes to 9 inch rear axle and a limited slip differential to power the vehicle. To handle this massive power, the vehicle is fitted with power brakes, front disk brakes, power steering and a host of other components that work together to ensure proper control.
