Thinking about getting rid of my 2012 5.0 in favor of a 2010 GT500
I apologize if this (or something similar) has been asked before. I don't know much about the Shelbys, but what are your thoughts? Are the differences drastic enough to make it worth it?
Depends on what you want to do with the car. In my opinion, yes the difference is drastic. While the 5.0 might handle a road course slightly better, the Shelby will blow it out of the water in a straight line, braking, and about any other category. The GT500s are incredily easy to mod as well.... spend $700-$800 and you will be making in the neighborhood of 550rwhp.
32k for 2010? with no offense, lemme me doubt this:P
Mustang 5.0 2013 Black on Black,
4.10, Steeda CAI/Tune, American Racing Long tube headers/Catted X-Pipe, Magnaflow axle muffler, 07 svt rims painted black gloss, R1 Standard full adjustable Coilover, brembo upgrade..1 pcs driveshaft, all the bmr goodies.
I just got my 08 GT500 for 34k with all the mods and extra parts and only 21k miles on it. This is my first mustang but I figured I would start with the GT500 if I'm going to get rid of my Built BBC C10. I have heard and read nothing but good things on these cars. I get home in July and that will be my first time driving it. I'm sure it will be everything I dreamed of.
I have to die when it's my time to die, so let me live how I want to live.
