It's official! 540 hp and 510 lbs.-ft. torque. Not too shabby. It looks like sex on wheels. Love the colors.

Geez that looks really good.:)

TMS has a bunch of nice pics that a little bigger. They have hi res shots too but you have to being a paying member to see those! pisses me off

tncruiser 01-01-2009 12:33 PM

that would be the colour id want in a 2010
but the style change hasnt grown on me yet

howarmat 01-01-2009 12:34 PM

grabber blue is the best new color by far IMO

GerRod 01-01-2009 12:59 PM

It's totally awesome. Got to figure out how to get one!!!

spooky 01-01-2009 01:05 PM

sorry, not digging it(although the power is good). prefer the s197 GT500.

EagleStroker 01-01-2009 01:10 PM

Wonder what they did for the little bump in hp, pulleys maybe? Body hasn't grown on me yet but I do like that color a lot.

howarmat 01-01-2009 01:15 PM

^ i agree, the styling of the current GT500 is a little better IMO but the Grabber blue kicks butt.

I was just telling someone how buying an 09 then getting it painted grabber blue would be sweet as hell maybe ;)

I don't think it will be very long before people start using it as an accent color on their cars, bet it would look pretty kick ass on a black or even a white stang.

In the article, it says they added a cold air intake, but I know that doesn't explain the 40 hp jump. They claim that's why they moved the Cobra badge on the grill, so that more air could come in on the intake side. Not sure that would really make a noticeable difference. Maybe they increased the boost on the supercharger.

How did the GT500KR attain it's 540 horses? Maybe they did the same thing.

ThisBlood147 01-01-2009 04:05 PM

Yea, they've basicly taken the current KR's setup and translated it into the standard for the upcoming GT500's. So whatever they did for the KR, that's what this new Shelby has also (from what I've read, anyways). I'm just curious if potential 2010 Shelby buyers are gonna be paying more for this added performance bump. I'd hope not.

I'm more interested in how much better this car will handle compared to the current model, than I am the HP bump. Achieving a 40hp bump in those cars is retardedly simple (yea, a better intake and a good tune would easily do it).

Sharp looking car. But I'm in the minority here.......I'm not feeling the grabber blue as of yet. Now if we were talking about a new Boss with all the nice blackout trimming, then hell yea.:D

That was my thoughts honestly, they could of done more but it will be interesting to see what all they've changed for the better.

im not sure where i stand on the new color yet either...

o7 tungsten 01-01-2009 05:15 PM

not really liking the grabber but this combo is sick.

Its the best looking 2010 that I've seen for sure. I still don't really care for the new bodystyle though. I'm diggin that Grabber Blue, I wouldn't buy it for myself, but its pretty cool.

sugarandopium 01-01-2009 06:14 PM

Looks great.
No rear shots though, will kill the look of it I'm sure..

99RedStang 01-01-2009 06:25 PM

I knew the projectors would look awesome on the GT500 front end.

Ato 01-01-2009 06:32 PM

wow I really love it.
