New Generation Mustang
By Tom Sarac on


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


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)
