2007 Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Truth be known, I was disappointed when iI first purchased my 07, not because of the over msrp, but what I expected from Shelby. Truth is I don't think Mr. Shelby got what he really wanted from Ford when it was finished. I took my car to Las Vegas to CSM (shelby's garage) a year after purchase. WOW!!!! Now lets talk finish! Carbon fiber everywhere! new suspension! New exaust! 20" wheels and tires! Stripes back on the drop tops! Numberplates and signature plates! The car is a blast to drive, handles like a dream, and looks 10 fold better. Worth every nickle for the 40th package! And Ford still warrantees it. Nope, I don't work for him, just satisfied with my Shelby now! '07 owners inquire!


Favorite Features

Endless horsepower, great mileage, reliable, Styling right on. Love to hear the supercharger whine. Stock stereo sounds great. It is definitely one of the best smile making machines I've ever owned!


Suggested Improvements

If you keep the car stock, then I think the average Joe will be content and I could nitpick a while about all the cheap looking plastic, how the car sticks up too far in the back, and how it handles on less than desired roads or you can take it to "The man" and get it finished right!

Review

I love this car. I owned 4 others over the years. This is one great car. I have to be careful because you don't realize your doing 80 or better while tooling along. We took a trip to Vegas in her and she cruised along like a dream. I don't know to say but this little red is a keeper.


Favorite Features

She's a convertible and a six speed manual and built for speed

None

Review

Have owned several convertibles - 05 Vette was my last. The Shelby is just more fun. When you mash the pedal to the floor - it just plain hauls. Smokey burnouts at will - and will lay rubber at any speed in 1st gear. The ridgity of the car could be better but it not as bad as some of the expert reviews state. The car lacks some of the bells and whistles of the Vette but who cares if you have to turn the lights on & off. As far as the wow factor goes - its high. Lots of thumbs up and questioning admirers. I think for 10-15K less than the Vette its a steal.


Favorite Features

Style. Power. Exclusivity


Suggested Improvements

Rear antenna, active exhaust
