2009 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)
This is great modern muscle car. Plenty of power and a loud, cool exhaust sound. The vapor metallic exterior color is unique and looks great with the black top. The wheels and wide tires are are well sized for the car, unlike many of today's sports cars.
The engine compartment looks teriffic. The supercharger and its drive belt are impressive, and fortunately are not covered by a cheap plastic cover like many supercharged cars by other manufacturers. The exhaust note is very loud and appropriate to the car. 285 tires in the rear.
Heated seats should be standard on the convertibles. A smooth launch in first gear takes some getting used to. Auto windows up and down control too sensitive.
