Power only
By blair on


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


Power and comfort are excellent. Smooth power band, transmission shifts perfect (previous zo6 owner), upgrades are endless. Finally a solid rear axle for good solid launches. Goodyear supercar tires are poor selection. Tire noise is none, rear end howl is present, no wind noise at higher speeds, rear suspension clunks on bumps. Panhard bar makes rear feel sloppy on hard excel. With shifting. Torque is on demand. Stripes are poorly pieced on, cheap black plastic rockers, mirrors, lower rear bumper cover and chin splitter are present. Highway gears are factory installed (needs 3:73 because of the mustang being overweight). All in all its a fun car to drive!

Best Features

Sc 5.4, 6 speed, solid rear axle, shifter has a positive feel. No high speed wind noise

Worst Features

Cheap unpainted plastic on a 50k car, poor pieced on decals. Does not come with Shelby signed dash plaque, but you can purchase at your local Ford parts counter for 220 dollars. 70s disco lighting to change drink holder, dash display and interior lighting to set the mood!
