Re: 2 GT500s spotted

ugh plain. not digging the EVO-esque hood heat exchangers. and the engine bay looks suprisingly empty and clean compared to most cluttered bastages of engine bays we have.

The only difference you will see are the white stripes...other than that, they have suceeded in offering a boring *** GT with a supercharger and body kit....oh yea, and the wonderful shelby badge.

Welcome to the boiled down version of something that was completely beautiful in NYC....

Re: 2 GT500s spotted

Front end looks good. Rear looks kinda blah. Maybe the honeycome rear pannel? But the angles of the pictures blow too.

The hood it needs IMHO.

Re: 2 GT500s spotted

wtf were they thinknig when they shoved the shelby badge to the left side... it looks much better in the middle. This is another example of ford making a really nice concept them blowing it on productions.

Let's hope so... because that concept *** looks so much better than the "production" one. I think the stripes also help the back (and front) seem a lot less boring though. The front end on the "production" one is actually otherwise identical to the concept if you look closely. The angles on those pics are pretty crappy as well.

If they can get the rear back to the way it was, I'd jump for one. Pretty high too.

It's the 70s style Shelby emblem that does it.

Re: 2 GT500s spotted

It was stated that the concept was about 90% or so of the actual offering...however, what you are seeing is accurate. The real offering is about 10% of the concept...the interior and engine are about all that carry over...oh yeah, and the stripe option and the shelby sticker even though he had nothing to do with it but will have a lot to do with the pricing by dealers.

The real offering is no more than a GT with a different engine...that they have tried to make as had to mod as possible....

Came out with a killer concept....and released a dud....but what else is new...

Re: 2 GT500s spotted

Well if you really look at the concept, it was a GT with a new bumper, stripes, add-on rear fascia, and a supercharger with wanna be Corvette rims.

And don't tell me they don't look like them either.

Re: 2 GT500s spotted

I went to a dealership the other day in the quad cities, and a salesman came out trying to get me to trade my car in for a gt500... he said with only a 10k dollar down payment, and paying 20k over sticker price, the first one in the area could be mine. I told him if I wanted to pay that kind of money, I could get a bullet proof block, new bottom end, huge heads, and a nice big KB, and fuel upgrades and make more power than the gt500 in a car thats 500 lbs lighter. He just gave me his card and left after that one.

Re: 2 GT500s spotted

20k over sticker? What a nut case. And ford wonders why they can't sell specialty vehicles quickly.

Although, there are many with more money than brains....

Re: 2 GT500s spotted

Thats just for the first on ein the area, after that theyre just normal... its just the "I have the first one" bragging rights. Itll probably just end up sitting on the lot for a while just like the Ford GT they have in the showroom with a 280,000 sticker price :no:

Re: 2 GT500s spotted

if thats the final production for the shelby, then yeah, i'm rather disappointed, its way too plain, just looks like any other stang on the road + cobra badges

although i'm sure its gonna sound like a beast, but still, i wouldn't pay money for that...

They did the exact same thing with the Mustang when it launched.
