Driving this insanely-powered Mustang would certainly be a blast, just ask Ray Wert. But would you go 3,000 miles in it if you were footing the fuel bill?


Welcome to Morning Would, where we present you with some of the most desirable, controversial cars ever built and ask what you would do to drive one.

Cross-country road trips are an undeniable part of the fabric of Americana. Wide, open roads and nothing to see but prairie for miles and miles. You've either done one or you dream of going one day, if you only had the time and the right car.

Well, the Mustang is about as American as orthodontics (we invented it, look it up). And the Shelby GT500 is the most powerful factory Mustang ever made, with 662 hp on tap flowing to some fat rear wheels. It's a monster to drive, but it's also a monster at the pump. It sucks fuel like baby that just discovered soda. Would you pay for its massive petrol consumption if you got to drive it from coast to coast? Let us know in the comments below.
