2008 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)
I bought this car for my wife and traded in a 2004 350Z. All in all the Z was easier as a daily driver but we really don't drive this car often. Mash the gas and smile all the time. A fun car to drive but as others point out the interior needs more distinguishing characteristics compared to a GT. The dealer tried to add 15K to the MSRP based on it being a Shelby; don't pay it! It is an extremely nice car but please know folks that this is a suped up Cobra and the only thing common to Vegas modified Shelby's is the Shelby label on the back and badge.
The view from the front and side, the Super Charger, strong clutch. Did I mention the super charger?
Less cheap plastic inside, better quality build (the convertible sounds like a convertible of old with the top up and the music down).
