This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The Shelby GT500 builds on its 1960's muscle car heritage with classic styling cues mixed with modern touches and a massive dose of horsepower. Available as a coupe or a convertible, the Shelby GT500 possesses an intimidating 550-hp, 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 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 gains standard 19" forged alloy wheels, MyKey, HID headlights and an all-aluminum engine for 2011.
