2013 Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible Review
Fast, head turner
Best going straight, Cup holders in odd place
Another Blast To Drive — I have both a 2013 Boss 302 and this Shelby Convertible, and where the Boss is quick and quite capable in turns and handling, the Shelby is about raw power and going in a straight line. The rear tires do break free on easy third gear turns which is unnerving (and may be attributed to the SVT package I have on it?) and the touchy gas pedal gets some getting used to. The clutch is easy and light. It has built in Launch Control so no Track Key needed like in the Boss. It's a head turner and a comfortable ride in the stock seats. There's no drone from the stock exhaust which the Boss has (after removing the sideplates). For the cost of the car, Ford still refuses to include rear floor mats which boggles me and the cupholders are right where your elbow would be when shifting.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Love the car but I have a 2013 GT500 ordered. Car gets looks no matter where we go - always draws a crowd. The occasional SS Camaro that wants a little taste usually wanders off licking their wounds... Read More
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 Treme... Read More
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 not... Read More
All in all it is a great car. It just took about $10,000 in upgrades over 5 years to get it there. Would still take it over many cars that are higher in the price/ prestige range. Goes fast. Stops... Read More
Love My Shelby
The 08 Shelby is the most fun car I've ever had, at least since high school when any car was a blast. I removed the stripes to keep the looks understated. Have added many mods for power and handling... Read More
