However, cannot get over the fact I can get a new 2011 5.0 GT with Brembo package for $30,800 + tax, etc. Which way do I go? I'm leaning towards the 2011 for price and the new motor. Thanks.
if the 427R has a good history I would get it. those cars look awesome....

I was thinking the same thing

First of all, having to decide between the 5.0 and the 427R is a good problem to have. If you don't like the looks of the 427R or if you don't want the supercharger, suspension upgrades, or the exhaust of the 427R, then the decision is easier.
I have a 427R and for me the suspension upgrades and exhaust are a big part of why I enjoy the car so much. Also, it gets a lot of looks and complements. I think the overall package is a big improvement over the GT Premium.
Regarding value, the 427R you're looking at has already depreciated about $15k off the sticker price (and I wouldn't be suprised if you can get it down a little more).
If they are both in your price range, drive both and see which you like best.

All....thanks for all the replies and input. I drove both cars again and decided to get the 2011 GT. Got a black on black with the brembo package. Very excited and looking forward. Thanks again and looking forward to visiting this forum frequently again!

I think you made the best choice. Wait a few years and save up for a supercharger. 550 HP ain't bad....

Good decision.

If it was a 05-09 427 I might have gone the other way because I like the body style better but I think you made the right decision.
Bigger and better motor with the same body.
Not to mention the other improvements.
