Ford has been coy about the Shelby GT500's Nürburgring lap time but SVT Performance has managed to obtain a video of the model tackling the Nordschleife.

While the clip came without a timer, the website trimmed a little footage and added one. Thanks to this addition, they estimate the car was able to lap the Nordschleife in a little less than 7:40. That time should be taken with a grain of salt but it slots nicely between the Camaro Z/28's time of 7:37.47 and the Camaro ZL1's time of 7:41.27.

As a refresher, the Shelby GT500 has a supercharged 5.8-liter V8 engine that develops 662 bhp (494 kW) and 631 lb-ft (855 Nm) of torque. Detailed performance specifications haven't been released but Ford has previously released a video that showed the model hitting 200 mph (322 km/h) at the Nardo test track in Italy.
