Feature Car - Shelby GT500

Ford's Shelby GT500 is a monster of a car. Brutal, unforgiving and you'll recieve very positive attention while driving on the street. It's a simple honest musclecar that sounds fantastic, infact if the high pitched noise from the supercharger mixed with the deep bass of the quad-cam 5.4 Ford BOSS V8 doesn't make the little hairs on the back of your neck stand up then your not really a car guy.
It's probably been said a thousand times but honestly, Ford hit the nail on the head with the styling of the current Mustang. It benefits from honest to goodness muscle car looks. The GT500 is a Muscle car owners dream with it's squat looks and fat rear.
This GT500 has a Custom leather interior, although the overall design and fit is quite simple and lets be honest a little old fashioned if comparing to most modern cars from around the world with the exception of Russia it just works, most probably in spite of not having all the mod cons.
Most people are familiar with the scene from Gone in 60 seconds with Nicholas cage driving his eleanor to hell and back well this modern day equivalent does not miss a beat in recapturing that excitement.
