Attention getter! by matchbox AZ on 01/23/2010. Trim: 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Aceleration, braking, attention grabbing looks and sound. Meeting lots of new people with it. The surprise on peoples faces
Cons: Interior could be better. Shaker 1000 sucking up trunk space. I could say fuel mileage but nothing this fast does any better. The fuel tank should be larger for trips.
Overall review: It is not a garage queen. I bought this car to drive and I do. I use it to go to work some days. I have autocrossed it. I have taken it on long trips. The interior could use some better material in places but is mostly satifactory. The rear seat it tight but functional as long as the front seat is not occupied by too tall folks. I would like to have larger tires since it is easy to overpower the current setup. Within its current limits it is well behaved and does nothing unexpected. If you hammer the throttle the backend gets loose and starts to come around. If you hammer the brakes, it wants to go straight. If you drive it smoothly it is very quick. But it has enough power that if you decided to do some drifting it cooperates. You do have to remember that it is closing in on 4000 lbs that you are tossing around. In short a much more flexible car than might be expected.
