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


Review

This is the best car I have ever owned. I have been shopping for a new sports car after selling my 2000 Saleen Speedster 6 months ago. I test drove a 2010 corvette grand sport, 2009 zo6, Nissan gtr, and a 2005 Dodge Viper. The GT500 beat all of them in every catagory. The corvettes and the Viper were out dated and way overpriced. The gtr was a cool car but $76k are you kidding. The performance of the GT500 was equal to the Z06 but so much more updated and advanced. Test drive them all for your self and you will see. One thing that about made me almost not buy this car though was the dealer would not let me test drive this car without making an offer.


Best Features

Tons of Power! Sync/Navigation, Handling, Brakes, Supercharger whine


Worst Features

Use the Supersnake hood and lose the side stripe, the 6cyl mustang has the same stripe. Needs larger wheels

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


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.


Best 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!


Worst Features

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


Best 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.


Worst Features

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)

Review

This is my fourth Mustang in three years. I thought I'd start slow and cheap. First, 2006 V6, second 2006 GT, third 2009 GT500, now a 2010 GT500. I realized I lost a lot of money on the trade-ins, however, I love this car. It's so exciting to drive and people stare at the car. It looks meaner than any other of the previous GT's. You have to experience the car for yourself. I had a 2008 C6 Corvette, honestly, this car is much more fun to drive.


Best Features

I love the 540 HP.


Worst Features

Weight reduction
