Power and style.


Not a family car.


Great Specialty Car. Not A Daily Driver. — All the power anyone could want. Classic 1960's Mustang inspired styling. Good combination of classic style with modern reliability and features. Great stopping power with Brembo brakes. The Tremec six speed manual transmission is designed for maximum accretion out of the hole but makes it difficult to start smoothly and slowly.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Head turning looks and the acceleration


Nothing to avoid


So Much Fun....so Little Time — I absolutely LOVE my car. It has always been a dream of mine to own a Shelby. The acceleration from it is amazing and the supercharger whine above 3000 rpm makes my happy place tingle. The exhaust note could be a little more agressive. Brakes work nicely but Ford did cheap out with the stock rotors/calipers in the rear as compared to the large Brembos up front. Fit and finish is great and with the windows up, AC and cruise set to 110 km/hr, you wouldn't know you were in a 500 HP car. Anytime I am looking for a reason to smile, I simply fire it up and go for a ride!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

high horse power


bad handling


Amazing Car — a strong acceleration and braking , bad handling and good built quality, it consumes alot of petrol but its just an amazing car , to be used in the arabian gulf. Its really fun driving it on the highways to test this amazing car.
