COAST TO COAST! I Bought My Shelby GT500 for THIS Adventure Across the US

Miami to Los Angeles, an epic 5,500 mile journey in my Shelby GT500 across the United States! From driving on the beach to the mountain summits, drag races to top speed runs, and meeting people along the way from Richard Rawlings at Gas Monkey Garage to TheStradman!

It's a journey of epic proportions as we zigzag across the whole of the US, kicking off in Miami after collecting my Shelby GT500 and having the SunTek Reaction PPF installed ahead of the big drive. The route takes us up towards Atlanta before turning West through Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and into Texas for stops in Houston and Dallas. Next we're following a path up through Oklahoma into Kansas and then across to Denver, through to Salt Lake City, and finally via Las Vegas on the way to the Pacific Coast.

The GT500 has the most momentous of outings; having started with new mileage, to driving on Daytona Beach, going to the top of Pikes Peak, hitting the speed limiter at 183mph on the dry lake bed in Utah, running on the dyno at Hennessey as well as some drag races, and so much more as we destroyed some tires along the way.

Along the way, we met up with so many awesome people and familiar social media names like Ed at VINwiki, Richard Rawlings at Gas Monkey Garage, Steve's POV, Tyler from Hoovie's Garage, Kyle at Out of Spec Reviews, Aaron from Life of Palos, James TheStradman, Burlacher, and more. Plus there's even more to come!

The journey itself has given us many memories that did not feature in full videos on the channel, but here's an opportunity to come behind the scenes for the full adventure as we travel for a month across this hugely diverse country.

Thanks for watching, Tim

    Fantastic Schmee. I am a Ford sales consultant in Cape Town South Africa and have sold Mustang 500GT's. Beautiful machine. This video gave me goose bumps. With the camera position, could not see much of the track, more dash display, so I could not properly see the power slide through the bend.

    Shme000 miles to go before empty :) Awesome and Epic -- Fun fact! From Ford. All Ford's use the 1/16th of a tank left when the computer says "Zero miles to go" The Ford GT500 has a 16-gallon tank, so with 1/16th of a tank means there is 1 gallon of petrol still in the fuel tank when the computer gauge says "Zero miles to go." So it could have been "Shmee15 miles to go" 😁😁👍🏼👍🏼 at that Epic scare!!! Love the video!
