There a dozen comments about zero extra horsepower. Really? Are you that Naive? There's conflicting articles out there about 300+ or 252 hp. Someone posted the base stats for the ST. Get over it and read all the information out there.
The $15k gets you zero HP, according to Shelby. There is an optional
Performance tune "coming soon", that will undoubtedly be overpriced as well. I'm betting that that is where the 300 HP number is coming from, which is 20% more than the stock ST. The GLH-S, with a 29hp increase, was also a 20% gain.
As the car sits now, with the likely heavy suspension and brake work and bigger wheels, I wouldn't be surprised if the Shelby was slower
than the stock ST, at least in a straight line.
