2008 Ford Shelby GT500 User Reviews
- $27,373 - $28,879
- No trim specified for this review
- Raw power refined to perfection
- Has wheel hop and the gas mileage is horrendous
This car belongs on the race track, but has the luxury appointments and comfort that make it suitable for daily commuting. It's a thrill to drive something with so much power that is also so surefooted when changing lanes and rounding corners. And it looks like a classic Shelby. People stop in traffic to compliment me. Valets fight each other to see who parks it. Married middle age men curse their overbearing wives from behind the wheels of their minvans when I pass them on the street. The only issues are the wheel hop and gas mileage. And you can learn to avoid causing the wheel hop, but the gas mileage is the choice you make when you own a performance car with this kind of muscle.
