2013 Shelby GT500 – Why?

Jack Baruth of TTAC, after hearing the news that the 2013 Shelby GT500 contains an astonishing 662 horses:

If you want to experience six hundred and sixty-two horses pulling you down the streets of your hometown like a Apolloian chariot hitched to the sun itself, now’s the time. There won’t be much of a tomorrow. Ladies and gentlemen, I present the 2013 GT500. Raise your glasses, perhaps for the last time.

Well, yeah. There’s no logic to buying a 662 horsepower Mustang. But you already knew that. It’s all about irrational power. And sometimes, that’s enough.
