The new 2015 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R is planned to only be sold in the United States, but that didn’t stop Ford Europe from taking the powerful pony overseas.

In a YouTube video uploaded by Ford Europe July 2, a red GT350R can be seen in an open plaza located in London, U.K.. Passerbys stop to take a look at the American muscle car, with a few taking pictures with it as it sits quietly.

Eventually, a man jumps in the driver’s seat to start up the 5.2-liter V8, to the surprise of those nearby. He revs the 526 hp engine, scaring everyone within earshot. I’ll admit, I would’ve jumped as well, because the engine sound is deafening, in a good way.

Check out the video below to see just how scary loud the new GT350R’s V8 engine really is.
