Love this beast
By Flasher on


2008 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)


I have always been a GM person (1967 SS Chevelle in the 60's) I drove this Shelby and wow. Since purchase I have spent less than 3K and got Ford Racing Axel Back exhaust, Ford Racing cold air kit and ford racing retune and then regeared the back end to 3:73. it has hp of Kr now. The only drawback is the good year supercar tires. They do not last and I get wheel hop on hard acceleration especially with TC turned off. I guess when tires need replacing I will go with something better. Still the best bang for buck.And upgrades done at SVT dealer keeps everything under Ford Warranty.

Best Features

6 speed tranny, Shaker 1000. Get tons of thumbs up when cruising.

Worst Features

Better tires from the factory and more assortment of wheels in 18" and 20"
