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


Review

I love it! It is so smooth and easy to drive that you forget how fast it is until you notice the other traffic disappearing behind you. Despite its power and acceleration it gets better gas mileage than a lot of less capabile cars. The brakes are always strong and I haven't caused them to fade yet. The distinctive good looks and exhust sound cause people to look at you as you cruise through the parking lot. You also get to meet a lot of new people that like cars. It seems that everyone that likes cars is drawn to the GT500.


Favorite Features

Distinctive looks, power and brakes. Ok and the attention it gets from passers by.


Suggested Improvements

Interior should be better for the price. It could use a good coat of stealth paint to reduce the attention it draws from the police. I prefer having a spare tire just in case.

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


Review

This has to be the finest performance car I have ever owned! I have been fortunate to own Corvettes, 350Z, Z3, TransAms, Mustang GTs, even a 67 GT390 Mustang and this car is the best of them all. I purchased the car USED with only 2400 actual miles and have not been disappointed. The Shelby had a full Roush exhaust system installed on it before it left the Ford dealership and it has a terrific sound. Far better than the stock system I test drove on other cars. The gas mileage is excellent and as stated on the window. For anyone looking at one of these cars the performance and handling are terrific. It does have the wheel hop under hard acceleration but the TCS work good.For the money buy it!


Favorite Features

The power and handling of a great American muscle car! Mostly likely will be one of the last out of a US manufacturer! The car does draw a lot of attention, always enjoy the questions.


Suggested Improvements

Really none, the interior could be upgraded a little but not a big deal with me. The seats are far superior to the seats in a new Corvette which I compared it to.

Review

I car sounds ridicously good gets alot of looks, butits kind of hard to drive in the rain especially going up hill. Car bounces alot on rough surfaces, but on smooth surfaces this car is ridiclously fast. On a tank of gas i can get up to 480kms on the highway and in the city if i drive fast around 270kms out of a tank. The car has had a clutch break down and replaced transmission bearings which ford fixed for free it cost 7300 dollars just in parts. They said they wouldnt have covered it but since it only had 10 thousandkms People either love this car or just dont notice it. On cornering the car feels realyl front heavy


Favorite Features

the noise the looks the speed the 1000 watt stereo system the resale value is great


Suggested Improvements

Better interior better handleing. when i drive this car fast around turns it feels that the car will just understeer right into the ditch. so it always keeps you from pushing it around turns

Review

I have owned this Shelby since Nov 06. I just love to drive it and hear the whine of the supercharger. I have a cold air kit and tune installed and it really woke up the performance of this car. I've also had it on track in Sebring Florida driver's school. It was a blast to drive.I get 16 MPG in town and 21 HWY at eighty. Had some clutch issues that Ford fixed. So far this is the most fun car I have ever owned. There are plenty of aftermarket parts to dress up your pony car the way you like it. And if you want more power, add a different supercharger.


Favorite Features

The motor has a rev limiter, so when you getting on the power don't have to worry about overdoing the RPM. Just love the way the front looks and the supercharger sound. The Shaker 500 rocks.


Suggested Improvements

Ford should have lowered the rear a bit. And soften up the plastic in the interior, but that can be fixed with aftermarket parts. Sunroof would have been nice.

Review

Everything is good with the handling except the solid rear axle causes the rear end to "skip" all over the place if there is the slightest imperfection in the road surface. With maximum acceleration in 1st gear it is always evident and gives the certain sense of loss of control. Rear suspenion certainly needs to be independent.
