Ford Shelby GT500 Drag Races Private Jet from a Standing Start

Posted Nov 20th 2012 6:30PM


Jets have always held a fascination for gear heads around the world. There's just something so sexy about them and the possibilites of speed that they hold. Flashbacks to Top Gun and Tom Cruise with his babe on the back of his GPZ750 Kawasaki racing alongside an F-14.

The Ford Shelby GT500 is also legendary in name and in deed. Throughout the years, the sound of that name alone gets most enthusiasts excited. This example of a GT500 with a giant blower and port work done, takes on the stuff of legends and challenges a private jet-plane to a duel. (the whine of that blower is worth the watch alone.)

Cue airstrip, video camera, applicable witnesses and let her rip. Watch this short vid to witness this matchup yourself. (Slightly NSFW due to a little foul language, post-race.)
