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.)

Great for a second car and generally fun to drive with super acceleration. Interior looks are good with much better interior than you'd find on a Camaro or Dodge. Electronics are not too bad for the... Read More

Overall the car is just a blast. The power takes a bit to get to used too, the supercharger responds quickly and when it comes on, if your not ready, all heck breaks loose. My better half regularly ... Read More
