I'm buying a 2014 GT500

Sold the 11 5.0 last month with plans to buy a 2015 when they came out. But,
This past weekend I was messing around on EBay and saw this 2014 GT500, in my favorite color with a buy it now price of $60,000. I started running the numbers and thought, I could afford this. Went to my local dealer were they have a new 13, different color, but same options. They wouldn't go below $66,000, so while sitting in that sales managers office, I called the guy from the add about the DIB GT500 for 60.000, gave him a deposit over the phone, and I think that sales managers jaw hit the ground. Got my financing today and I will fly to Minnesota on the 13th to pick her up. Right off the showroom floor, I will be putting 1000 miles on her, Minneapolis to Fort Worth.

Here's a couple pics I took off the dealers website.. DIB, 821A, Ricaros, Nav and car cover. MSRP = $63,400

That's priceless...I'd give almost anything to have seen the salesman's face as you make the deal over the phone.

And the color combo on the Shelby is awesome!!!

His face was funny. He didn't believe me when I told him about this car.
I showed him the ad. Then told him he would have had a sale had he just come down a little on his Sterling Grey 13.

This next week is going to be like a little kid 1 week before Christmas.

Nicely played my good man... Nicely played. Glad you had the means and the wherewithal to do it. When you factor in the cost of airfare, fuel and food (notice I didn't say lodging.. After all it's only 1000 miles x 100 mph ave = 10 hrs you still come out ahead.. Plus the experience of a lifetime. Map out a few sites along the way and make it an adventure.

The fast top speed!!!!! Read any article on the 14 shelby and the reason they use that over the 3.73 was top speed ONLY! 3.73 or even 3.55 in the 12's was better off the line- i owned a 12!
Dont be an a hole on here- u should learn to be a bit more respectful on a forum.

3.31 is best for top speed is what i read this to be- maybe i am reading it incorrectly

Most 2013 come with 3.331 not 3.73 - i havent seen 1 with 3.73 yet but i have seen some super snakes using 3.73 not 3.31 and i have not seen a 14 with 3.73 yet either

I just mean the fastest ones in the 1/4. Shelby swaped out the 3.31 to the 3.73 just for the street acceleration.

Gears were for longer legs...

I will say that the 3.5 sec 0-60 time is better than the 3.9-4.0 sec time of a 12 with 3.73 but the power difference isnt factorred either-

Right power helps, but 3.31 will give you less wheel spin on street tires vs 3.73. Also in the 13 the 3.31's let you hit 60mph in first gear

The red one sold Monday right before I called him. They just haven't taken it off there site yet.


Thanks everyone else for the compliments.


I already ordered the 1st mod. I hate the tall antenna so got the same shorty I had on my 11.

When I test drove a 14 gt500 I couldn't get any traction even under partial throttle. 3.73 is not a very good ratio for the new gt500. It was fine for 11-12, but there's just too much power for those gears now.

I also couldn't believe how great it shifted and and the feel of the clutch was great as well. Once people start selling their 13's to get 13's I'm going to pick up all slightly used one.

I've never drivin that part of the country, so I'll be looking to snap a pic or 2. I land in Minneapolis at 0844, then hopefully pick up the car and on the road before noon.

This last week has been killing me. If I haven't been on a business trip since Wednesday, I'd already have her home.
