    I like the hood. Shame that the rest of the bodywork looks like it was designed in NFS Underground

    I never really cared for the over the top 2018 Super Snake front-end, but this toned down version on the GT-H looks ace!

    Somebody finally fixed the 2018 facelift. Ford please pay attention and make the 2020 like this.

    Honestly curious, why would anyone get one of these instead of a GT350 at essentially the same price?

    "The naturally aspirated version produces 480 horsepower. The additional horsepower comes from a new exhaust... • Shelby by Borla cat-back exhaust"

    So this is the second "specialty" vehicle released claiming a twenty HP boost from mods that are known to not really affect horsepower, that combined with the in the wild dyno reports, and trap speeds from stock GT's kind of confirms conservative ratings on the stockers.

    Tom, I've waited on the 500 as I would want a convertible. But, at the starting price (that I expected to be high, but not that high) it will be a hard decision. That decision being do I get rid of of my Corvette Vert for a 500 Vert, because of that starting price. Dad-burn first world problems....:crazy: :wink:

    Lets address the elephant in the room. What kind of relationship involves two Shelby GTs.

    So they also took PP2 rims and painted them gold?

    The car from a performance aspect is good but the body work looks pieced together, like rushed and doesn’t flow all too well.

    That hood makes the entire front clip look like it is sagging towards the ground. The front fenders seem to be really rounded downward, like sloping down at the headlights and slopes more forward - is that an illusion due to the hood or are the front fenders new on the Shelby?

    Is the hood really higher at the axle than at the cowl? That looks strange.

    I'm sorry, but I'm not digging that body kit at all.

    Much prefer the stock '18 hood.

    Shelby America gets a lot of their wheels from Weld. Those aren't PP2 wheels.

    The terrible bubble hood, the plastic junk tacked on the fascia, the minimal performance upgrades at that premium price -- looks like every other Shelby I will never see in person, on the road or at shows... thankfully.

    Just like every other Shelby America product, you pay a premium for a car that says "Shelby" in 30 different places.

    Shelby makes the exact opposite product that I'd ever want. For me, put every $ into the engine, and forget all the paint, plastic, and badges. I much rather shock the hell out of someone at a stoplight than have a car look faster than it really is. They pulled a similar stunt with the Shelby Focus ST. Some suspension bits, louder exhaust, a lot of decals, hood vents, and 252 horsepower. For $15,000 extra. Check, please.
