Purchased As New
I decided to trade-in my '08 M3 for a Brabber Blue GT500 and the Snake is everything I thought it would be and more! Going from a BMW M3 the ride feels like getting out of a sportscar and jumping into a street legal racecar. Its simply a dramatic difference! Ford got the steering right as far as how the electric steering feels and reacts. At highway speeds the car is really tight and needs no correction from crosswinds or grooves in the road. Its very well...M3ish! Overall the Snake is a perfect package with loads of power and something European cars usually lack...TORQUE! Lots of it! At 510 ft lbs the power comes on at low rpms and stays all the way through the powerband. I'm still breaking the car in, but the few times I've gotten into it, its been quite impressive...I can't wait to get the 1K breakin period over to see what this thing can truly do! The car is so powerful and so well done and balanced...yes, balanced! Ford has really outdone themselves this time with this hotrod. If your looking for a high performance car thats not bashful look no further. Ford can and does build suprecars...and for a fraction less or those proud brands. Sure there's a few things you can pick on material wise, or I'd like a large diameter steering wheel (thicker) but they did it right plain and simple! Thanks Blue Oval, I'm so happy to be back in a Mustang...I mean SHELBY!
