This Shelby GT500 Crash Is What Happens When 662 Horsepower Goes Wrong

The 662-horsepower Shelby GT500 is a tire-shredding machine, a little voice in your mind to do a burnout anywhere, any time. That little voice reportedly put a dude in the hospital over the weekend.

Here we see a foolish GT500 driver giving in to the urge to prod the gas pedal, expectedly losing traction and unexpectedly crashing side-on into a Ram pickup.


The YouTube uploader reports that this happened while leaving a car show (no surprise there) and that the driver ended up in the hospital.
