10 Fastest Cars For 2013

According to Daniel Bukszpan at CNBC, car enthusiasts are already looking ahead to next year. They want to know one thing: how fast does this thing go?

Here is a list of the 10 fastest cars of 2013. It was provided by Karl Brauer of TotalCarScore. He says, “Entry into the ‘200 Miles Per Hour Club’ doesn’t come easy, or cheap.”  This list does not include cars made in extremely small numbers, so if a car company has fewer than 20 dealers worldwide or sells fewer than 20 models a year worldwide, it isn’t included.

Here we go,  the 10 Fastest Cars of 2013 are…

10. Ferrari 458 Italia (Top Speed: 201 mph, Engine: 562 HP 4.5L V 8)

9. Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera (Top Speed: 202 mph, Engine: 562 HP 5.2L V 10 )

The Legendary Carroll Shelby

In May of this year the automotive industry lost one of its greats with the passing of Carroll Shelby. From humble beginnings, Shelby went on to become a world-champion race car driver. However, he is perhaps best remembered for designing and building innovative and iconic cars like the Cobra, high-performance versions of the Ford Mustang and injecting expertise and testosterone into the development of the Dodge Viper.

During the 1950’s Shelby drove for the Cad-Allard, Aston Martin and Maserati teams and in 1959 he won the brutal endurance race 24 Hours of Le Mans, co-driving a British made Aston Martin. A heart ailment forced him to quit driving and in 1962 he founded Shelby-American. It became one of the most successful independent sports-car builders of the era.

Shelby began building his Cobras using the chassis and body of a two seater from AC Cars of England and packing powerful Ford V-8 Engines into the lightweight British roadsters. The Cobra won the United States Road Racing Championship in 1963 and the Grand Touring world championship in the large-engine category in 1965.

In 1964, Lee Iacocca asked Shelby to help create a high-performance version of the recently launched Mustang. In January 1965, the first Shelby Mustang, the GT350, made its début and a legend was born. Shelby also developed the Ford GT40, the Shelby GT500 and the GT500KR (KR stands for King of the Road). The Shelby-American team’s Ford GT40 won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966 and 1968 ending a six-year winning streak by Ferrari.

Ford Racing put a video together of Carroll Shelby “In His Own Words”.  It is fascinating…

The famous Shelby Cobra and the many other high performance vehicles that Shelby designed and built enlivened, and in many cases, revolutionized the automotive industry for the past 50 years. He will be missed, but his legacy lives on.
