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