2009 Ford Shelby GT500 User Reviews
- $30,365 - $31,966
- Awesome looks, power, and ride
- Serious gas guzzler and not good in the corners
Purchased As New
I bought this car brand new and have had it a year now. I am a diehard Mustang guy and this is my third Cobra(95,04, and 08). I love the car but I do have some complaints. Few rattles in dash here and there. Definitely not for the driver that wants something that can handle. Sometimes I wish maybe I would of gotten something different but overall I am really happy with it. Drive it before you buy it. That may seem like common sense but I just figured it would be like the others....read morehide

- No trim specified for this review
- Great appearance getting back to the mean look that made the Mustang loved and feared .
- The 5.4 liter engine
Purchased As Not Purchased
I love the fact that they are designing the Mustang to look more like its older brothers in the sporty look and commanding body style though I do have a reserve about the performance of the 5.4 liter engine. I owned a Ford with this engine and had problems with the spark plug seats becoming dislodged over time and maintenance, I really hope they found a practical solution for this issue....read morehide

- FUN to drive GPS, it would ne a nice toy to go with the rest, Needs classier wheels
- GPS would ne a nice toy to go with the rest of it. Needs classier wheels or more optional styles
I bought this instead of a new vette and its still hard to get in and out of for an old guywith artifical Hips. Didn't like the fact I had no color choice accept the blue with silver stripes. Are the 2009 models the same ?

- awesome mileage for type of car. Great power, looks hot, great for attracting girls, Rides good
- Guys, its a shelby mustang, its not a lotus, its goin ta be alot heavier! Common sense! Great car!!!
Ive always loved shelby cobras! Especially the 1968-69 mustang shelby's... which the new model is designed after. My previous vehicle was a Chevy Camaro Z-28 and a mustang fastback 1970. Ive driven many sport cars, but this is my favorite yet! Hey dumb idiots! Of course its gonna be heavier! Look at it! Its not a small, cramped, italian supercar... Its A MEAN, AGGRESSIVE, MUSCLE CAR! Its meant to be hefty, powerful, and cool! The 2008 Ford Shelby Cobra Mustang fits every category of a muscle car and passes any test with flying colors! True muscle car lovers will cherish and worship this car for generations!...read morehide

- WHEEL HOPS-TERRIBLE CLUTCH-NEEDS MORE FEATURES INSIDE-NO FACTORY TINT-
CLUTCH IS TERRIBLE FOR RACING AND COMING OUT OF 1st GEAR- REST OF GEARS FINE- WHEEL HOPS BAD WHEN IT DOES HOOK UP. RACE STRIPES ARE STUCK ON INSTEAD OF PAINTED ON. NO HEATED OR AIR CONDITIONED SEATS ETC LOW ON EXTRA'S- NO FACTORY TINT- POSITVES- ABSOLUTELY AWESOME TO DRIVE, BACK SEAT FOR KIDS- HEADS TURN LOOKING AT THIS BEAUTIFUL RED AND WHITE SHELBY COBRA-TONS OF POWER-CONFORTABLE- STEREO 1000 IS GREAT-MOOD LIGHTENING ON FLOOR,CUP HOLDERS CHANGES 5 DIFFERENT COLORS and DASH COLOR CHANGING ABILITY IS AWESOME AS WELL. I MUST SAY I AM A 1st time OWNER OF A MUSTANG-- I DO LOVE IT AND WILL NOT SELL IT FOR A VETTE OR CAMARO- FITS THE KIDS IN THE BACK SEAT- MY SHELBY COBRA HAS 350 MILES ON IT RIGHT NOW! I CAN ALSO SAY THAT IT FEELS EXTREMELY SOLID (STRONG). STEERING WHEEL FEELS GREAT AND THE WAY YOU SIT IN THE CAR MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE IN A MUSCLE CAR. THE ONLY ONE I FELT BETTER SITTING IT WAS THE DODGE VIPER (Double the money however and no back seat).
OWNING A PART OF HISTORY IS PRETTY COOL AS WELL- CAROL SHELBY AND THE WHOLE MUSTANG FAMILY.-- NEAT EXPERIENCE GOING TO MUSTANG EVENTS AND SHOOT OUTS....read morehide

- super charger sound,aggressive looks
- cornering,wheel hop off line,to heavy
When I bought this car I was in love for about 4 weeks by week 7 I bought a 2007 corvette and never looked back.If you want high performance top speed cornering breaking and better gas milage with room to haul stuff and looks go with the corvette as I have raced a few gt 500 and with my stock 2007 corvette and killed them ,don't get me wrong the gt500 is fast but the vette is stupid fast and better in ever way besides having a back set thats why I have a tahoo for winter driving and it's only like 3000.00 more for all that...read morehide
