A collector's item from the moment they were announced, the 2007 Shelby GT500 has always been a desirable coupe. And when it's so well preserved on the outside, loaded on the inside, and upgraded for performance under the hood, you know the steely gaze of this snake-bitten Mustang is irresistible.
The Tungsten Gray is in such great condition that you know it has lived a pampered, garage-kept life. The whole coupe is a great modern representation of what Carroll Shelby did to the original Mustang five decades ago. These cars take the retro-look pony coupes, and make them more aggressive. The blacked-out grille and hood vents make for a perfect dark side to this bright finish. Plus, the handsome chin spoiler has never seen the top of a curb. Just in case the full body dual stripes, lower rocker stripes, spoiler, and SVT wheels were not enough subtle hints for others 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. The seats, door panels, headliner, and carpeting all retain the deep, dark appearance that a cherished muscle machine should. Shelbys came only one way, loaded. This means air conditioning, power windows, power locks, leather wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry, and cruise control are all present and working perfectly. The stereo is the upgraded AM/FM/CD Shaker unit that pumps out huge power and clear sound. But it's the Shelby the individually numbered Shelby plaque prominently in the center is what is you're going to love the most.
A 500 horsepower street car is serious business, and the GT500 more than lived up to the hype. The engine is a variation of the 5.4-liter supercharged V8 found in the Ford GT supercar, and when mated to the six-speed manual transmission, this Mustang offers enough performance to keep Z06 Corvette owners looking over their shoulders. And while it's the original motor in the engine bay, there are plenty of upgrades to watch out for. This includes what you can see like the JLT carbon fiber cold air intake and pulley upgrade. There are elements you can hear like the SCT Tuner and rumbling Ford Racing dual exhaust. Plus, there are plenty of pieces you can feel like the BMR front and rear sway bars. All of this makes the coupe distinctive and adds a performance edge above the other GT500s out there. Plus, power steering and four-wheel disc brakes lets you keep this enhanced power under complete control.
Complete with the window sticker, Shelby certificate, and owner's manual, all of this paperwork is fun to review now, and it will be exceptionally useful as this GT500 keeps appreciating into a true classic. That's really the point of this car in total. This is a Shelby Mustang you enjoy on sunny days and know that there will still be admirers down the road. Call today!!!
