Video: Mustang Shelby GT Does K-OTIC Burnout – Fatally Injures Tread

The power plant behind all that smoke can be seen in this build shot.

As of press time, we have not been made aware of the prognosis on tread survival. We can only assume that it is not good. But then again, maybe some things are better left unsaid. What say you?

We’ve all seen those burnouts where they anchor down your front tires and you do a stationary burnout for 60 seconds or so. Lots of smoke but little action. This was obviously not the case wherever  Matt N Sheri Clarke of  Florida Street Machines were. Watch their ‘65 Mustang Shelby GTK–950R.

Now, it is not quite clear if this is a recently completed customer car or something of their own built in their speed shop. If it is, it’s a heckuva way to break it in! Their style would give a purist nightmares for months. In this video we see what is a relatively stock looking Shelby off in the distance.

This Shelby was the recipient of a complete ground up restoration

We also hear an engine wound up tight and what appears to be a volcano eruption behind it. Then we see it sideways and the smoke show continues.

Before we go any further, perhaps we should insert a little back story. The first thing we notice is the license plate, K-OTIC. Not something we are used to seeing on restored Shelbys. It more resembles those plates we see on those Aussie burnout maniacs in their videos from down under. Indeed, as it turns out, these people do have some kind of an Australian connection. We are not quite sure what it is.

Alright, lets cut to the chase. This car has been in magazines and cover shoots from here to New Zealand. It is a “…street legal 1200 hp monster.” It is a 2012 SEMA SHOW veteran. It runs a 408 with a couple of big turbos that suck to the tune of 82mm. They claim 772 hp at the wheels. Are they bragging? Or is this believable after you check out all that smoke and destruction of tires.
