I personally have never driven a Boss 302 however I have driven a 2008 Gt500 and a 13 Gt500. Both cars are great however the Gt500 is more setup for straight line racing and top speed while the Boss is meant as a track car. In my opinion I would rarer have the Boss because it handles better but also because it is lighter. Both cars are great but I would rather have a Boss. The only drawback of the Boss is the decision to put the Mt82 in the car instead of the Tremec.

From a Shelby owner… Who here drives their boss around corners like Billy badass on the streets? I think no one as they dont make road race events here- not street racing but legit courses. Unless they are blocked off and tailored to roadracing needs. We all say that is a track car. Well technically you are right. But if you only do right or left turns on a track that's not fun in my opinion. I can in a Straight line for as long as i want on the interstate. Unless I get caught… thebtorque the2013-14 has Is simply amazing! The boss has a huge downside with that transmission!!! I think with the right driver on a trackthe raw power could help the shelby time attack vs a boss 302. My biased 2 cents.

That's what I was thinking, but curvy back roads that have a lot of turns are the best to drive on, so I was thinking the Boss can carve those roads well, but idk how the Shelby handles through curvy back roads. I love them both though haha.

Its like comparing a linebacker to a running back. Both may be great, but the Boss is more finesse than brute force.
