This Shelby GT 500 destroyed the dynamometer at Expo 24 Performance in Sherbrooke, in Quebec. As the driver pushed the accelerator, the dyno measuring its engine power, has not held up and exploded like crazy. The dyno completely dropped causing a sublime fail.
The incident occurred in 2013 at the exhibition Expo Performance in Sherbrooke (Quebec state). At first everything went smoothly, and the driver of the Shelby GT500 gradually increased the number of revs of the engine, but at one point the dynamometer could not sustain such a high load and vomited some sparks, shattering into pieces. At the same time, the Shelby suffered significant damage to the rear axle, its suspension, and perhaps even the transmission.
Fortunately, apart from the car no one was hurt from the explosion of the dynamo machine. It is possible that the failure occurred due to the fact that the test stand has not been installed properly, and therefore could not cope with the power of GT500.
Obviously this dyno does not like Shelby!!! So, the all mighty Shelby decided to teach it a lesson. While on the rollers, the red Shelby GT500 showed every weakness of the dyno. What a power of this legendary muscle car!I guess it had too much of the Shelby. Now, who’s the boss?! J Watch what happens on the video!
