Re: 2013 Shelby GT500 vs. New ZR1

It'll never touch a Vette .... not in the same class .. GT500's a Pony car / its heavy , Corvette's a sports car ..lighter more nimble etc ........

Re: 2013 Shelby GT500 vs. New ZR1

I may have to talk myself into waitning to trade my Z06 Callaway in that i was about to do for a new ZR1 this spring. I do love my Corvettes along with my Mustangs but for some reason I cant seem to like driving the vett anymore so maybe this is my answer then.

The new Shelby GT500 supposedly will roll out with 620 stock horses and bigger engine displacement. Oh yeah!

I know the zr1 is lighter, though but maybe the z06! plus get the Shelby and spend the less money adding mods than the stock zr1.

Probably the most close minded comment I have seen all day. The car continues to get lighter and lighter, more power and more power ( Besides who wouldn't rather save the $30K) The Vette is not the end all be and the GT500 is a sports car, too. Just like every other Mustang, Camaro, & Challenger. The Vette may reach the "Super" category but the GT500 is not far behind.

Re: 2013 Shelby GT500 vs. New ZR1

Well I tend to over-analyze questions like this...it's more than just a simple answer with the name of the car...each car has their advantages and personally racing in a straight line is boring as hell...I'd have to see the handling and ultimately drive them both to decide which one would "win" having said that the vette will probably be quicker in a straight line mostly because Fords of any kind aren't known as the quickest...but it will be nice to see them bring back the 5.8...do you know if they're doing it like the new 302???? but in my opinion the Mustang wins hands down...for starters I HATE driving vettes only because the inside turns my stomach and looks trashy...also the 500 has a couple more seats and although it's heavier I'm a fan of a more centered and balanced car and I've never felt centered in a vette...honestly the Shelby is going to be the better car but I don't think it will beat it at the 1/4...but which one will "win" depends on what they're going up against each other in...but like I said I tend to over think things...

Re: 2013 Shelby GT500 vs. New ZR1

yup , Vette's not even the Mustangs competition , the Camaro is ...
there's no shame in not being better than the Vette ,its an awesome car ..
and i don't even like Vette's but you have to give credit where its due ,,,
The Shelby's an awesome car and I'm sure with 620hp it'll be even more so !!

it may be a close minded comment ,but its true , sorry to say ..
and you don't think the Vette keeps getting lighter and faster also ?
and YES I'd rather save the $$ and own the Gt500 because i like Mustangs ,not Vette's , but I'm just a bench racer ,who could only dream of owning such a fine automobile ... i could not afford either one
but luckily i have friends with such sweet rides and have driven many and have been allowed to really drive them hard to I've even had the pleasure of hammering on a Ford GT , AWESOME EXPERIENCE !!!!!
