Shelby GT500 Destroys Dyno

Normally when we show you a video of a dyno run, it usually consists of a Ford Mustang making prodigious amounts of horsepower and torque. Not so much with this one. The footage shows a 2007-2009 Shelby GT500 Convertible hooked up to the dyno, and at first everything seems to be going well. Then, inexplicably, the dyno explodes, sending sparks everywhere and the Shelby crashing awkwardly to one side.

We’re not exactly sure what went wrong, whether the Shelby was making too much power (unlikely), the dyno was set up incorrectly, or if something was wrong with the dyno itself. Either way, it’s a lesson that you should always be careful around dynos, especially transportable ones like the dyno in the video. There’s a lot of rotating mass with a lot of energy that can be unleashed if something goes awry.
