Everyone always is quick to call 07+ GT500s Shelby's when in fact they are FAR more an SVT than a Shelby... as in Ford basically just has a license to use Shelby's name other than that its an SVT car lol. I hope they get back to this soon and at least keep some credibility with the GT500 name and stop making so many of them.

Seems its about a 60/40 split for those that hate the IRS or like it. Its a horrible design implementation for the Cobras... but it CAN be fixed and made to work VERY well, just takes a bit of money to get it right. The ride though is very nice.

The only thing that is Shelby on the newer GT500 is just the name!.. Every thing else is all Ford!..

To much debate over a Termi vs GT500 ... Let's face it. Both are beast and as long as they smash on imports, corvettes, and other non ford then that's good enough for me !!!!! Pony Power People !!!!!
