2009 Ford Shelby GT500 User Reviews
- $30,365 - $31,966
- Supercharger wine at high rpms, Sound, comfortable, 1000 watts audio system and the furious look
- solid rear axle, handling, interior and fuel economy in not bad but not good
Surprisingly comfortable, the ride isn't rough at all. Always keep the Traction Control on, you can not control the monster under the hood with that old fashion suspension. I power-shifted it and I got wheel spin at 3rd gear!
I had 28 mpg with this car in high way at 65mph but put your foot down and the computer tells you are getting 6mpg!
Center console, dashboard and around the door's arm rests are made out plastic, serious lack of imagination from ford in interior.
Turns a lot of heads and great car at this ridiculous price....read morehide

- It's wonderful to drive, smooth, picks up when I want to drive fast. LOVE IT!!!!!
- It' not a car you want to have to put a lot of miles on it.
I bought my first Shelby GT500 in April and I love it! I wish it was a little more high tech on the inside but I guess I'll have to add that stuff myself. If you are a Shelby lover or Mustang lover you just can't explain why it's just the best thing to to drive in. I love Ford and I love Mustang's. So, I am a HAPPY owner of my Shelby.

- Wheel hop is terrible
I am truly happy with my Shelby, I will never sell it. I believe its the best mustang ever. The possibilities of this car are endless. This car has and will continue to make history on the street and the track.

- Power, Comfort, Tranny, Stereo, Handling, Lights, Sound, Responsivness
- Draws too much attention
Traded in my 2008 ZO6 Corvette and never looked back. This car is what an American Soprts Car should be. Had a reflash on the computer done along with a Cold Air Kit and Longtubes and the car now puts over 600HP on the pavement. Also installed the FRRP Handling Pak and this thing just runs away from EVERYTHING on the track at Tx Motor Speedway, not to mention the winding back roads of the Tx Hill Country. Also have a 10 second TimeSlip from Alamo Dragway in San Antonio. The really cool thing though is that I can still eek out 20mpg on the interstate if I keep my foot out of it. Think I'm going to have to buy a Steeda Q650 Mustang to go along with this Shelby just so Ill have one of each from the only big horsepower factory Hot Rods still made in America. Then next year I hope to aquire one each Roush & Saleen Mustangs just so I'll have one from all the Big 4 Mustang Builders. It's really a thrill to run away from all the foreign cars from Japan, Germany, Italy, Etc.. in a good old Mustang, The original American Pony Car!...read morehide

- Fun car to drive. Turns heads where ever I go (Grabber Orange). Economy better than expected
- Premium cost over sticker by Greedy dealers.
A very fun car to drive. The last 3 tanks have averaged better than 18.5 mostly city driving. That is still getting on it at the lights for the instant GRIN!
I wish it had a few more creature comforts, ie auto head lamps for starters, but It's a sportscar so I'll live without.
Now have 3900 miles on it and still grinning...read morehide
