The 2013 Shelby 1000 S/C, with 1,200 horsepower is the most powerful production car on the list. Built upon the 2012 Ford Shelby GT500 that offers 662 horsepower, the completely street-legal Shelby 1000 has Ford’s new 5.8-liter V8 that has been stripped down to strengthen the internals and the power has been cranked up. A finely tuned adjustable suspension and performance cooling package have been combined with big brakes to outperform other exotics with prices more than three times its cost. Starting at $154,995, only 100 will be built, and each will be numbered and documented in the official Shelby Registry, like the Shelby Raptor.
