GT 500 The Truth
By Dave Maxx on
Vehicle
2008 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)
Review
1st thing , removed factory suspension replaced with Eibach Pro+, added evolution ultimate suspension, pulley kit, programed for 91 octane, and magna flow exhaust. It is what it is and nothing more, a muscle car that is more than fun to drive. I also have a 07 c6 Vette. So here is an honest comparison. Vette out performs GT500 in every way as far as race track performance goes, Vette has nicer interior and more bells and whistles. That said however when I go driving the GT500 gets all the attention. As for driving experience, both cars are amazing to drive and put a smile on my face. The Vette gets close to 30 mpg on the highway, the GT500 about 20mpg.
Favorite Features
The sound of the supercharger. The amazing torque. The feeling you get when you drive it. The way people are just drawn to the car, the retro looks that take me back
Suggested Improvements
Suspension is a big issue. Wheel hop is terrible on hard acceleration. Adding some more creature comforts would not be a bad idea. Move battery to trunk to help with weight distribution.
