the 2013 1000 S/C has a new 4.0-liter supercharger, new engine innards (including rods, pistons, and rings), a new fuel system with new injector, and a new cooling system. the upgraded six-speed manual transmission saps has a driveline loss of about 15 percent, So 1000 S/C makes between 1020 and 1050 horsepower at the wheels. Shelby didn’t release any acceleration or top-speed figures yet.
