What goes 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds? This 2012 Ford Mustang GT500 pony car is one example that can do just that. Ford’s in-house pony car is a name as successful as their F-series range of trucks. The Ford Mustang has endured since 1964 and after six generations, it’s still going strong. This 2012 Ford Mustang GT500 comes from Arizona with just 31,000 miles on the clock, zero modifications to the motor and transmission, and in great condition. It’s reported to have always been garaged, and the original window sticker is also available.
This fifth-generation 2012 Ford Mustang GT500 sports a classic black exterior paint job and a set of 20” Foose Design wheels wrapped in Nitto NT555 G2 rubber that is reported to have just 5,000 miles on them. The GT500 is also enveloped in Cervinis Eleanor body kit color matched to the body. The satin silver dual racing stripes run from front to rear, and racing stripes on a Mustang is an iconic look. The interior is completely blacked out as well with a few silver/ chrome trims. Carpets are emblazoned with Shelby GT500 logo. The Recaro bucket racing seats also in black feature the Shelby Cobra logo on them. The side sills are adorned with the SVT logo. A minimalistic Cobra logo sports steering wheel takes pride of place with multifunction options on it, and the gear knob is an all-white cue-ball-esque design. This Mustang has got the usual creature comforts one would expect such as climate control and the factory radio set-up from Shaker.
Mustangs are typically V8 beasts although there have been V6 and four-cylinder variants produced, in fact the current sixth generation’s base model is a turbo four. Nothing of the sort for the hot models such as this 2012 Ford Mustang GT500 which packs a supercharged 5.4L (330ci) Modular V8 which puts out 550hp and 510 lb ft of torque. A six-speed TR-6060 manual transmission sends the power to the rear wheels, allowing this Mustang to rocket from rest to sixty in 4.1 seconds under the right conditions. A further perk of this motor is that the federally mandated gas guzzler tax is not required since it can do 15mpg in the city and 23mpg on the highway if you drive it gently. Ford’s AdvanceTrac electronic stability system helps keep you in check should your right foot get a little twitchy at inopportune moments.
