The Ultimate Tow Car?

Well, probably not, but with 1183 bhp on tap I wouldn't mind trying it New York motor show: Shelby Mustang GT500 S/C 1000 | Autocar

I think the owner would cry if his car went anywhere near the sea water. I bet it sounds awesome though.

Yep, build quality of Yank motors must be terrible. That's why only half of Cuba still relies on 50's Chevys, Buicks and the like for their daily transport rather than all of them

Expensive! I hope he has checked it out properly. My understanding is that all tow bars now have to be tested and plated with a manufacturers plate, E mark, rating and test number displayed on a badge. If it doesn't have that, his insurance company can walk away from any claim involving towing and he can be prosecuted for towing with illegal equipment.
