Purchased As New
This is the first Ford and the first "muscle car" (if you can still call it that) that I bought in my life - just could not resist the "most powerful production V8" and 662hp at $60k.
Fell in love at the first turn of the key. The sound is definitely one of the top features. The power just seem unlimited - as long as you push the accelerator, it keeps pulling like a jet on wheels. Makes me grin every time I step on the gas.
Handling is surprisingly good for such a heavy car, but I wish the steering effort was a bit more weighted and had more feedback. It needs a 4th "super sport" setting.
Aesthetically, the car looks great both on the inside and the outside. Love the new headlamps and taillights. The glass roof option is a must, IMHO, as it opens up the car and makes it feel larger inside than it actually is.
Man, it is hard to back up in this car! With the car sitting so low, I feel that back-up camera/sensors should be standard (or at least available from the factory). I plan on adding an aftermarket camera to my car shortly.
It is quite difficult to find this car at MSRP (or less). It was by far the hardest $60k I ever spent. I wish Ford had a better ordering system in place both for matching paying customers to available allocations and for tracking the progress of factory orders once it's placed by the dealer.
Overall, I feel that Ford did a great job with gt500, focusing on all the important things.
