2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 . What happens when a performance legend from Dearborn reunites with a performance legend from Texas? You get the Ford Shelby GT500. The collaboration between Shelby and Ford’s Special Vehicle Team (SVT) continued to yield an instant collector’s Mustang that delivers 500 horsepower from its supercharged 5.4-liter V-8. A modern interpretation of the big-block Shelby Mustang of the late 1960s, the 2008 Shelby GT500 used advanced engineering to attain the kind of performance that made it the original “king of the Road”. Serving as touchstone and inspirational leader for both the concept and the production versions of the modern GT500, Carroll Shelby was impressed by what SVT engineers had accomplished. The Ford Shelby GT500 was built alongside other production Mustangs at the Ford-Mazda joint venture assembly facility, AutoAlliance International (AAI), in Flat Rock, Mich. As expected of anything with Shelby’s name on it, the heart of the car is what’s under the hood. The Ford Shelby GT500’s supercharged 5.4-liter, 32-valve V-8 evolves from Ford’s experience with expanding its modular engine family. Output is a brawny 500 horsepower. The engine is force-fed an air-and-fuel mixture via a “Roots-type” supercharger providing 8.5 pounds per square inch of boost. The GT500 uses a cast-iron engine block. It borrows from the Ford GT program its aluminum, four-valve cylinder heads, piston rings and bearings, which add a high level of performance and durability “Powered by SVT” camshaft covers add the finishing touch to the engine ba. y Delivering the power to the pavement is a 6-speed manual gearbox with evenly spaced gearing. This gives a rewarding driving experience throughout the engine’s broad torque curve. The heavy-duty transmission has proven itself a perfect match to Mustangs in both road and track environments. Power requires control and the Ford Shelby GT500 continues a legacy of all-around performance that made the original Shelby Mustang a world-class racer. This GT500 starts with the solid underpinnings of the Mustang GT. Mustang was designed from the beginning with performance in mind, providing an exceptionally rigid, well-engineered platform for GT500 chassis engineers. SVT engineers retuned and upgraded key chassis components for the GT500. Improvements such as revised shocks, spring rates and upgraded stabilizer bars help the Ford Shelby GT500 stop and turn with the same authority as it goes. It features a MacPherson strut independent front suspension with Reverse-L lower control arms, and a solid-axle, three-link rear suspension with coil springs and a Panhard rod for precise control of the rear axle. Some of the biggest brakes in the business are used on the GT500. Four-piston Brembo calipers are fitted to 14-inch Brembo vented rotors up front, and 11.8-inch vented discs in the rear continue SVT’s tradition of great-braking Mustangs. Secure footing is provided by 255/45ZR high-performance tires in front and 285/40ZR high-performance tires in back. Wheels are 18 by 9.5 inches. With unmistakable Cobra styling one glance at the Shelby GT500 shows this is not a typical Mustang. We could go on and on about this instant collector car, but just take a look and then don’t miss your chance to own this fantastic Modern Muscle Machine today for the alert investor price of only $36950
