The Ford Shelby GT500 is a second generation high performance model built by Ford but applied with the Shelby name, and is the second facelift following the initial S-197 I in 2006 preceding the S-197 II in 2010.

It was first unveiled at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show and was made available in May 2012. The 2013 model of the GT500 features various improvements including a set of HID headlights, new LED tail lights, a removed front grill for increased cooling, twin fuel pumps, larger fuel injectors, a Tremec 6060 six-speed gearbox, and a single-piece carbon fibre drive shaft.

The biggest alteration is the 5.8-litre supercharged V8 being fitted in place of the previous 5.4-litre supercharged V8.
