2008 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)
I saw my first dream car when I was 15. A red conv Shelby GT 500. All I could think was someday! I have since owned other performance cars including Corvette's, Camaro's, Saleen's at 560hp. All of which I was and remain impressed with. What can I Say,I am a 12yr old gear head with a decent job that lets me play. Then I got my 2008 Vapor GT500 Conv. My wife will tell you I cant say enough about it. The GT500 was awesome, But I felt it lacked immediate throttle response. A Evolution Perfomance kit (Air Intake, smaller pulley 4psi boost, and a re-program for a quick 640hp)put me into pure wow mode. The GT500 has looks open roof and real power. I am living my American Dream
The engine. The look of the exterior. Then the road feel. This is a performance car that demands your attention and the attention of others. The GT500 feels right at home just cruzing with the family or playing where ever! I won't let this one sit in the garage. Driving this car is a release untold.
I would love to see the aluminum block. Other then that, give me more open road time with other gear heads.
