Ford Bronco VS Mustang Shelby on the track, an uneven duel?

Ford organizes a match full of surprises between a Bronco and a Mustang Shelby 500. If everything seems to be decided, the end has a nice surprise.

Ford had the idea to face two of its legendary models on a lap. But it seems that the American brand has not properly gauged the forces involved.

V6 vs. V8

On one side we find the new Ford Bronco, imposing 4 × 4 which revives the famous name which disappeared in 1996. In its most powerful version, it can still count on a V6 2.7 de 310 ch.

But on the other side, cit’s not just any Mustang facing him. This is indeed a version Shelby GT500 which delivers 771 hp via a monstrous Supercharged 5.2 V8.

A distinguished guest

One wonders what the good of bringing them together, so much the fight seems over in advance. That said, the person behind the wheel of the Bronco is none other than Shelby Hall, driver of a racing Bronco R… Any clue on how the race was going? At least we’ll at least have the right to a Shelby duel!

A race more contested than expected

At the start, the two icons from Ford leap forward, but inevitably, the Mustang clearly takes the advantage from the first meters. But the Bronco has not said its last word! It takes advantage of its 4-wheel drive and its raised ground clearance to cut through fields and take all possible shortcuts. He finally arrives in the lead but just barely, although he cut wherever possible!

A disguised ad?

But after the race is no less interesting. The pilot of the Mustang, who is none other than Gary Patterson, President of Shelby American, states that Shelby should do something ” with that “ pointing to the Bronco. The double meaning is evident between Shelby Hall and Shelby American. The pilot replied that that would be a great idea. So soon a Bronco with a Cobra on the grille? Nothing is impossible !
