If you can live with only four seats the GT500 is a far superior experience to the Dodge Challenger SRT8 in every way.

Power Ranked 2011 Dodge Challenger worse.
"More Power!!! 550HP stock makes the GT500 a contender with many cars well above its price class."
Front Seats Ranked 2011 Dodge Challenger worse.

Attention Getter — 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 over all price of the car.

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

Pros: Insanely powerful

Cons: So much power - tough to get it to hook up

Worth The Buy — Nothing to complain about, I got exactly what I paid for. Ford has done an excellent job at making the Shelby a fun and valuable car. Plus the buying experience was great. Ford has quality service, as long as it's not Five Star Ford in Carrolton.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quality performance, sounds and feels great, nice aesthetics, it's a great car for enthusiasts.

Cons: Nothing I can't handle. Fuel economy isn't great, but I knew that what to expect so not really a con.  Costly maintenance, as to be expected, it's a "Shelby" not a Camry.

Step On The Pedal And Hope You Know How To Drive! — Performance-Battale Axe Build Quality-Much better than expected Appearance-Subjective, but I love it! COF- Very little FF-Crazy! This is a great car, especially for the price. I have owned many HP cars, but this is a true muscle car. I was never a Ford or an American car owner however, this car changed my mind regarding American cars. I started with Vettes, moved to Porsches, Aston's and finally to Ferraris. This car is a beast! It is not as easy to drive to as Ford GT is or a Ferrai for that matter, but you get a big bang for the buck. My 2 cents.....

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

Pros: FUN!

Cons: None

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

Pros: feels relaxing when seated in the driver seat... :)

Cons: noyhing man.!!!

Definite Buy — This car is very fast, with great suspension which keeps you sticking on the road turning sharp turns and and nasty hills. It's built for speed and nothing more. The look it has is of a classic American muscle car. Shelby really got it right this year!

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

Pros: This car is the definition of muscle.

Cons: Interior could use a more modern look

Wicked — this car remains loyal to the name Shelby. The exhaust note is awesome, its unique, quiet when you need it to be and when you mash the pedal, its got that ....... well you know. The car sticks to the pavement, and if you dont watch out you'll be sideways b-4 you no it. 0 to 60 in 4.2 sec's. All alminum double overhead cams 32 valve 5.4 litres w/ a blower. Hand assembled by 2 people and then signed off on a plate riveted to the left rocker cover. Some cars are fast, thiscar is wicked fast. Iknow theres faster and better handling cars out there but very few look so good doing it.

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

Pros: the kona blue body color w/ oxford white stripes is the color for this car no internal rattles or squeaks seems pretty reliable too but I've only put 2000 miles on her.

Cons: could have used better quality materials for the grill, splitter, and difuser.

2011 Shelby Gt 500 — I love this car. The torque thru the bands is awesome. Getting to 100 was one of the fastest I ever had. Styling was awesome. Nav is awesome, the CD Disk manager was great and easy to use. I will buy another. This one has the louvers too.

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

Amazing! — The 2011 Shelby GT 500 is a classic American muscle car! Shelby Cobra's have been referred to as the King of the pony cars. It's 5.4L engine will give you the ride of your life! I love this car! I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking to own an American classic!

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

Pros: This car has excellent handling and great gas mileage compared to previous models. 2011 is the first year of the aluminum engine in the Shelby GT500.

Cons: Non-telescoping steering wheel.
