2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible caught enjoying the weather ahead of Detroit

2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible caught enjoying the weather ahead of Detroit reveal?

Detroit in January isn't exactly the proper place to go topless in a 650-horsepower tire smoker, but that doesn't mean rumors of the 2013 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 Convertible's impending debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show aren't accurate. And these spy shots prove that the car is very much ready for its big unveiling.

We're expecting the soft-top Shelby to pack the same 5.8-liter supercharged engine as its hard-topped sibling, which means the asphalt will be punished with those aforementioned 650 ponies along with 600 pound-feet of torque. For the coupe, that power equals a top speed of over 200 miles per hour.

...if the weather out here in the West reaches Detroit by next week
a convertible would be quite appropriate = sunny, dry, & in the 60°'s

just meant that since Detroit is latitudinally like Reno, prevailing winds and all
that maybe they'll luck out
instead of their usual NAIAS-blizzard &or deep freeze**


ps/fyi
I've lived in LA
& the temperatures at altitude here, near 1 mile high,
feel better than I was used to ... anywhere from 40 to 95 is actually comfortable
pps**
lived in Chicago (the most beautiful city in the world) too
so I know what Great Lakes weather is like
ppps
you ever visit the Callaway Winery in Temecula?
