"It can't be mistaken for any other car"....except a V6 or GT mustang....a GT with a big motor...and stickers (easily 20 more hp there). Still think this car is a let down. And how about that massive nose dive during the breaking. I thought it was going to cartwheel.

Re: Shelby GT500: Ford Bold Moves Episode 5

If its one of the best performance vehicles money can buy .... thats sad. I think Ill take a Z06 please It would be really funny if he was to say, "We are going on 150 mph now." and a new Z06 flyies by leaving him standing still lol.

Word... people keep comparing the GT500 and Z06 for some reason. THEY'RE NOT BUILT TO COMPETE WITH EACH OTHER!!! Some people cant, for whatever reason, get that through their head.

You are correct the Z06 was not built to perform with the GT500, the base model C6 was.

Re: Shelby GT500: Ford Bold Moves Episode 5

I really want to like this car, but a 2 ton Mustang with a terriable weight distribution is a huge disappiontment to me. I think me and many others had to big of expectations for this car. Still I'm sure its probably the best performance mustang (beside the 2000 Cobra R) Ford has build to date, but I'd rather have a 03/04 Cobra, and yes that car had hell of a lot of brake dive.

From a purely performance standpoint, so would I. I can't stand the way they're styled...but...For an easy, fast, drag car...pretty awesome. (I'd put a live axle in it, if I ever bought one)

I agree, I don't care that much for their styling. Their front bumper and their stance makes them look kind of big and heavy (which they are a little heavy) in my opinion, and I don't care for the way you can see their exhaust from the rear. But I think they look pretty good when they are lowered and get some bigger rims on them. I like how the replica 18 inch stock rims look.

The reason for the comparison is because there is nothing else in the mustang's category anymore. And the fact that a mass produced....read factory....mustang is pushing the 70k mark...you have to bring the vette into the picture. It is a simple fact...you have 70k to spend....do you pick A: A 500 hp SUV disquised as a sports car....or B: A 500 hp (Not sure on Z06 hp #s) speed demon that can do well in both straight line runs as well as corners. You can't help but say "I would rather have a Z06" because they are both in the same price range.

Gt500s are NOT going for 70k dollars with the markup.

Just because theres nothing else to compete with the mustang anymore doesnt mean you throw chevy's BEST TOP MODEL of any car they have into the mix with fords. If thats the way you want to play... start comparing the ford GT to the z06, not the shelby. Z06's were designed for everything... they were made to take turns, made to go straight, and made for sleek sport styling. The mustang is still what its been for the past 40+ years... a sporty coupe/vert. Its sole purpose in life isnt to pull over a G on the skidpad, its to give people something affordable and fast, and that GT500 has done that. You cant compare apples to oranges man... if you want to compare Ford best vs Chevy best, then scrap the GT500 cause the ford GT is fords "top" model sports car. Simple as that.

Honestly, Id hope a 65k dollar z06 could wax a 43k dollar GT500 in every category. If it couldnt there'd be some serious problems.

Re: Shelby GT500: Ford Bold Moves Episode 5

Plus the dealer mark-ups are not Ford's fault. Ford has nothing to do with how much over the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price the dealers are selling them for. Blame the dealers and the people who are willing to pay it, which in turn allows the dealers to get away with it.

I'd rather have the GT500 and the extra 22k in my pocket.

Re: Shelby GT500: Ford Bold Moves Episode 5

You missed my point Zim. My point is, there is nothing else to compare the GT500 to....so with no other choices, you pick the only option you have from the biggest rival of Ford....Chevy. The same could be said if you want to compare it to something of Dodge. You sure as hell wouldn't pick the skittle as it's competition...no matter how much you can build them up. You would pick the Viper for comparison.

Why would you pick the top of the line model from the competition? Well, to make your offering look better. Besides, there is nothing else to compare it to. So, with a lack of options, you pick the only option you have from your competition. In this case...the Vette. What do yo think they should compare it to? The Cobalt? The neon? The GTO? The Charger? NOne of them are even close to being in its league.

As for the Ford GT comparison, it was made when the GT came out. There were many comparisons of GT vs Z06...as well as comparisons to lamborginis, ferraris, and such.

As for the 70k statement....well...Call these guys up and see what they are listing them for (http://www.shelbygt500dealer.com/). They bought up all the power lease options they could in order to work this deal on release. They bought up like 15 or so power leases (for 10k each) in order to increase their allotment of GT500s. Now, they are slapping a 25k markup on the car. Every thread I read about a dealership having a GT500...it is quickly stated there is a 20-25k markup on the car. Using simple math....I can then determine 43k base price + 25k markup = pushing the 70k mark as I stated. I am not saying it is Ford that is marking them up...I am just saying they are going to be selling for a price that is pushing the 70k mark (and don't forget TTL) for a little while. It is just a cold hard fact...and a pure and simple example of greed as well as classic case of More money than brains supporting the behavior.

Yes...all of this markup **** will go away once the GT500s start collecting dust and costing the dealerships money. Until then, they are selling for prices that are pushing the 70k mark...unless you are lucky and find a location that is selling for MSRP. Many are listing as selling for MSRP...but then state it is not the price it is selling for. When they do hit MSRP...then they will be a good deal. Until that point...the Z06 is a much better bang for the buck...and I HATE....let me add some emphasis here....I HATE vettes in every sense...but I would take one over a GT500 with the markups that will be plaguing the market for the next few months.

Re: Shelby GT500: Ford Bold Moves Episode 5

Will if you have to resort to comparing a 43k dollar car to a 70,000 dollar car and the difference isnt mind boggling for the 27k dollars you pay more for the Vette... the GT500 is the winner in my book.

Y'all are still missing my point. The fact that the only thing left to compare the GT500 to is the Z06, and in reality, the Viper....is a compliment to Ford. It means they have gone above and beyond the competition to the point where they can only be compared to cars that are out of their league. Kind of like being a MMA fighter that just destroys everyone in their weight class...so they have to move up a weight class to get and kind of competition. It is a compliment....ugh.....

I agree, at strict MSRP...the GT500 is a better bang for the buck. However, during the next few months of gouging....the Z06 is a lot better investment (assuming the Z06 can be had for around MSRP...don't know as I don't step foot on GM lots unless it is to look at a used ford)....unless you convince someone to sell for MSRP.
