2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This model is much better than the 2006-2009 models and so much better than the Mustangs of the 1980's era. Ford SVT finally put out an exemplary product that you can feel confident about. The GT500 is a performance level vehicle for under 50k with daily driver characteristics. Transmission, engine, suspension and interior build quality are equal the euro models. Many compliments by others-body lines, wheels, brakes, exhaust etc. My only suggestion would be to swap out the Goodyear rubber for a better product. Otherwise, an exemplary product and improvement over the past Shelby models.


Favorite Features

Bluetooth link, satellite radio, crisp transmission, wide power band on engine and oh that supercharger whine!


Suggested Improvements

Blind spot on left & right rear quarters and replace Goodyear tires.

2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Coupe 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I am a pro-Ford, pro-Dodge, pro-Chevy guy and really enjoy seeing all three ramp up their muscle car lines. In other words, I have no bias for or against any of the three. This is the first Ford product (other than my '28 model A) and it has been a blast so far. Excellent power, the stability control has saved my @$$ and my kids can't wait until I die so they get to drive it! I have no plans to ever get rid of this one. I highly recommend it to people looking for a long term addition to his/her garage and to those who enjoy weekends with nice weather or taking a car to the track.


Favorite Features

Horsepower, Stability Control, Looks, Stereo volume goes up enough to drown out the wife, kids love the exhaust sound.


Suggested Improvements

None.

Review

I'm an old Hot rodder. Used to run 100 mph everywhere but it seemed it took so long to get there & you'd better have two hands on the wheel. This thing will go to 150 mph easily with one hand on the wheel. The handling is incredible. The sync is great and the weather radar has kept the hail off it more than once. Can't see how to make it better.


Favorite Features

Run it through the gears like the old muscle cars with this short throw 4 speed and 2 overdrive gears for coming home. The brakes, the handling, the sync, weather radar, I could go on & on!


Suggested Improvements

maybe more rear grip.

Review

I've had this car about two weeks now, and have loved every minute of it. This car has what feels like unlimited power, and it's still great to drive on a daily basis.

Review

Purchased my 2010 shelby coupe only a few days ago, drove it back from Toronto to Montreal, have logged some mileage in a short period of time. As of 4 days of ownership compared to the 04 heavily modified mustang cobra I built and drove as a summer car for 6 yrs. I am pleased with the direction of this generation of mustang. Stock for a car of this weight it is well composed, responsive, comfortable and looks hot. Hats off to Ford for being able to make a live axle work. A few upgrades and this car can further defy the reality of its weight significantly. Pleasure and easy to drive, gas mileage is surprisingly good and the overall driving experience has delivered the mustang into a new era


Favorite Features

Styling interior and exterior, handling, balance, power (and potential for more), heritage and reliability, HID Headlamps, 19 in. forged rims, value (saved significantly over 2011, worth the 100 lb. difference), solid chassis, trim quality improvements.


Suggested Improvements

Eaton TVS supercharger, less weight, loose the spots on the front dash aluminum trim (understand the design inspiration but it doesn't work), keep up the attention to better fit and finish (much better than previous generation but needs to continue improving)
