What a Privledge to Own
By John Tamel on
2008 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)
Just an overall great car. A bit pricey, but buying in February appears to make a considerable price difference. This car somewhat reminds me of the car in the movie "Christine" because it is capable of so many things. Most notably, the 500 horsepower will blow away just about anything. Most Corvettes don't even match up to the Shelby in terms of power. Corvette owners lining up next to a Shelby at a red light shouldn't even consider steppin on the pedal. Try that and you'll be embarassed and left in the dust. Any person using the Shelby for ordinary, everyday travel should be shot.
Ambient lighting and the Shelby recognition & reputation. Being an owner of a redesigned legend makes it easy to go home at night in the worst of moods. Truly an engineering masterpiece.
The back seating area could have been designed for a little more space.
