The listing was for $46000. For a car in it present condtion it should list for about $39000 to $35000. It is over priced.

Amazing vehicle. Craftsmanship and engineering are unmatched among American Muscle cars when considering the Gt500 Shelby Cobra. 500 hp and 6-speed manual transmission make the owner experience one in a lifetime. Shelby and Ford go to great lengths to keep this owner experience at the highest level. Buy one and keep for life!

My View — 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 fast. Corners better than most think.

Pros: Fast, looks good, the upgraded interior from Shelby really helped to improve the interior.

Cons: Small back seat, wish wider rear tires fit.  Took some upgrades to really get this car to where it should have come standard.  The original clutch was really poorly designed for the power this car offers.

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, like many Shelby owners do.

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

Pros: Power, handling and looks

Cons: need to add costly mods

Magnificient — Takes me back to the 60s - the height of the muscle car era. The combination of comfort, performance, handling, reliability, and pure power is usually found only in cars costing six-figures. It is a real pleasure to drive and look at.

Pros: $5300+ in aftermarket upgrades make this car a beast

Cons: It's loud

Great Fun If You Enjoy American Muscle — Well what do you say about a car that has been around for 50 years, still has a fixed axel in the rear and plenty of muscle in the front. I love it!!! The acceleration is excellent and the breaking is ok. I had the handling improved to that is ok as well. It will never reach the level of a track car you must know. But it is all about emotions in this car. The build quality is not as good as a german car. A lot of plastik. But so far no major repairs. The cost of ownership is mainly tires and petrol. Of course the milage is not too great with a tuned 500 Hp motor. But one I start the engine and hear the sound I do not get the grin off my face. So is it fun? Hell yeah.

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

Pros: Great sound

Cons: I you hate being looked at

Buy One!!!! — I absolutely LOVE this car!!! The GT500 is the embodiment of the Neo-Muscle Car era, and Ford has really done itself proud with this one. The GT500 accelerates, handles and turns heads like no other Mustang I have ever owned. With everything you get in this package, for the price there is no better bagain out there. I highly suggest if you are a Blue Oval guy/gal pick one up.

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

Pros: Ford got it right with this one

Cons: If you are a Brand X loyalist then avoid this car.  It will show you the folly of your ways and a life misspent.

The Red Devil — There isn't anything to dislike. This thing is sex on wheels and it runs like the beast that you know it is. Acceleration is out of this world, along with handling, where else can you find a car that handles like this that also weighs 4720 lbs.

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

Pros: Everything

Cons: Gas Mileage, but if you can afford the car the gas isn't that bad.
