Thumbs down Top Gear: GT500 test drive

Yes, this is more Top Gear Bull****. I especially like the Dyno part. I don't care what ya'll say these *****es are some ****s, and don't deserve to judge cars. Apparently we Mustang owners and people that like Roush Mustangs look at our sisters sexually.

Re: Top Gear: GT500 test drive

Do they know nothing about drivetrain loss? Are they really that stupid?

And they said the GT500 doesn't have a limited slip?

OMG...

The limited slip comment struck me as a bit odd, too.

What can you expect from people that drive on the wrong side of the road

Re: Top Gear: GT500 test drive

Considering M3 money though guys, with a BMW you'd get all this fancy **** whereas if you bought a Roush or Shelby you'd still be getting this bland interior and such.

I can see where they are coming from. After I saw the Shelby GT500 in a dealership I questioned "Why the hell would I buy this for 80 grand (Marked up obviously) when I could get an M3 instead?"

Interior sucked, I mean the only things you see different in a Shelby are badging, and the seats are different along with the shifter knob. Yay. Otherwise you still get this hard plastic everything.

I don't know, if I was going to drop 80 grand into a car, I'd better have some awesome bells and whistles with it.

Or I'll buy me an old school muscle car

Re: Top Gear: GT500 test drive

I think the MSRP of 40-45k is starting to push the limits of being worth it for a mustang in its current state...let alone the mark up fun.
