A collector's item from the moment they were announced, the 2007 Shelby GT500 has always been desirable. Of course, it only gets better on a 1,685-mile example like this one. That's right! We could have put more miles on this car had we just driven it once a year from our showroom to Disneyworld for some fun! But what that really means is this Shelby Mustang is your opportunity to own a cherished example of a modern muscle machine that was produced by automotive royalty.
The Vista Blue on this snake-bitten Mustang is in such great condition that you know it has lived a pampered, garage-kept life. The sale even comes with a car cover so you can tuck this one in every night. The whole coupe is a great modern representation of what Carroll Shelby did to the original Mustang over five decades ago – particularly because there's something special about a Shelby car dressed in blue with white racing stripes. Plus, these take the retro-look pony cars and make them more aggressive. The blacked-out grille, hood vents, and lower body kit with rear diffuser make for a perfect dark side to this blue finish. Just in case the lower rocker side stripes, full-width rear spoiler, and SVT wheels were not enough of indicators for other cars to get out of your way, Cobra badges on the grille, fenders, and rear gas cap are the perfect announcement about how hard you bite back.
Inside, the black bucket seats might be cowhide leather, but they've got Shelby's trademark snake embossed in them. There are no scuffs on the door sills, no scratches in the dash, and the carpets still look factory fresh – that's what you get on a respected coupe with nearly impossibly low mileage. This is a loaded machine with a power driver's seat, power locks, keyless entry, and cruise control are all present and working perfectly. The stereo is the premium AM/FM/CD Shaker unit that pumps out huge power, and it's still modern enough that it comes with an aux input for your iPod. Plus, a modern classic means modern safety features like anti-lock brakes, dual front air bags, and side airbags. There's a special badge in the center of the dash to remind you this was built at Carroll Shelby's center when he was still running the show. And the performance feeling continues as you wrap your hands around the leather wrapped steering wheel and short throw shifter.
A 500 horsepower street car is serious business, and the GT500 more than lived up to the hype. The fuel-injected engine is a variation of the 5.4-liter supercharged V8 found in the Ford GT supercar. So yes, you have serious street-eating power. And when mated to the six-speed manual transmission, this Mustang offers enough performance to keep Z06 Corvette owners looking over their shoulders. The engine bay looks just like the way it was the moment it rolled off the assembly line, and so you'll be glad to know it's an all-original powertrain in this low mileage coupe. But while the production stickers still seen in the undercarriage photos remind you this car is at a collector-grade level, we know you won't be able to resist adding miles to the odometer. After all, with a sports suspension, thick sway bars front & rear, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, this Shelby begs to be driven.
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker, title documentation, and a Shelby Certificate of Authenticity. All of this paperwork is fun to review now, and it will be exceptionally useful as this GT500 keeps growing into a mature classic. That's really the point of this car in total. It's a Shelby Mustang you enjoy today and know that they will still be appreciated down the road. Call today!!!
