Has anyone done 200mph in a Trinity 500 outside of what Ford claims?
Arguably the only thing the Trinity 500 does well is straight line speed, and if that was what I was shopping for, it's the HC Chally with the A8.

In the course of reading up on these great machines, I am seeing that I can get an almost NO mile like new 2013 or 2014 GT500 Convertible for about the same money that I can order a new Mustang GT for. It is becoming tempting to buy the Shelby with 662hp and get everything I want already done. I know it will not have the IRS, but I am not so sure that matters.

Anyone else consider this before buying a new GT? The idea of a BRAND NEW GT is appealing, also, there is some concern with buying a used 662hp car no matter how low the mileage.

I appreciate your thoughts....
Look @ the YouTube videos and then decide. Depending on the in service warranty date you are covered regarding the power train. There is really no way you could engineer the mustang GT to match the 13/14 GT 500 without spending a ton of Money.

You are misinformed about what the 13/14 500 can do besides top speed. Look @ the last YouTube I posted. Then come back on and back up your statement.
Most people are not aware of the amount of engineering that went into the SVT performance pack and the track pack.

manual and a vert?! Go with the 500, the mt82 is garbage on majority of the s550s. The gt500 is also quicker out of the factory.

You could also go auto/5.0 pick up vmp SC, and gap every stockish gt500 out there.
