Miles of Smiles by Car guy from Illinois on 01/28/2014. Trim: 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Coupe, Owned 1 year.
38
Pros: I own a 2013 GT500 had it 18 months with 6100 miles. I have owned big block corvettes, 911 Turbo Porsche, Viper. I still own a Hemi Dart, Hemi Cuda and Hemi Rt. My 2013 Shelby GT500 is in a class of it's own. So much performance and power. This is a true drivers car as said before it will not suffer a fool. I have seen 11.23 at 136 MPH in a quarter and have won my class at the local BMW, Porsche, and Ferrari track days. The car is docile if you wish and if driven with common sense it will get 22- 24 mpg on highway or 12 -14 in town. But if you want to unleash the beast it will get 9 - 10 mpg and scare any passenger into tears and wet pants. The car is off the charts for fun factor.
Cons: This is only a warm weather or summer car. If the car kills me it will be the combination of cold tires and a heavy right foot. If it is below 45 degrees you better tread lightly or suffer the consequences. Tires are extremely soft compound and the Goodyears that come on it or very poor. Purchase Michilen Pilot Super Sports. Make sure you are ready to purchase tires about every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. I haven't worked with brake pad compounds yet but the brakes do fade more than I believe they should when pushed. Extended lower front spoiler is very low. I suggest for $154.00 you purchase a spare you will need it when you sell it to the next guy.
Overall review: For the price the GT500 is the best buy if you want a true super car. It will hold its own with the best. But it is a true drivers car. In skilled hands it is an precise instrument of speed. In the hands of a novice it can be deadly if pushed beyond the limitation of the driver. To those who are novice just keep the nanny controls on and you will be fine on a sunny warm day. DO NOT EVER turn them off unless your skills sets rival Mr. Schumacher's or Mr. Stewart's (both Tony "smoke" and Jackie). If you want to have fun and enjoy driving get this car. If you are a car guy it will make you smile when driven. If you are not it can scare the bejesus out of you in a New York second.
