This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
Redesigned for 2010, the Shelby GT500 builds on its 1960's muscle car heritage. This newest rendition features classic cues and aggressive modern styling touches, mixed with a massive dose of horsepower. Available as a coupe or a convertible, the Shelby possesses an intimidating 540 horsepower, 5.4-liter, V8 engine and six-speed manual transmission. With only one powertrain combination available, this cars reason for being quickly becomes clear. Modern amenities such as air-conditioning, a six-disc CD changer and leather seats for four leave passengers wanting for nothing. Safety is addressed with technical features such as four-wheel Brembo disc brakes, traction control and an assortment of protective airbags. The Shelby GT500 has been redesigned inside and out for 2010. New sheet metal makes the new design appear smaller than the previous model. The engine is up 40 horsepower for 2010, now making a whopping 540-hp.
