Man, there are a lot of Shelby bashers on here. I just don't get it. The great thing about this country is that you have choices. If you don't want one, don't buy one. I see comments like "boring" or they just slapped a Shelby badge on it and installed a supercharger. I don't see Roush bashers or Steeda bashers on here and they generally do the same thing. Shelby is an iconic brand and the performance on their cars are really really good. So many "keyboard car designers" on here that think their ideas are better. Everybody is entitled to their opinion but some people on here are just over the top. I personally like all the variations of all models of our beloved Mustangs.

Seriously...

Not going to waste my time reading the press release. Other than 50th anniversary badging, is there anything that's actually unique about this, compared to all of the other Mustangs Shelby offers...

Nicely put.

Of course someone could build something similar themselves, cheaper too. But that's not the point. Ford clearly believes in the Shelby brand, as was clear by what was said in the live reveal.

Steeda Q750, Roush Stage 3, Shelby SuperSnake...........I'd find it tough to choose between the 3, but I'm really glad there is a choice :)

I couldn't agree more TT. :cheers:

I take it that the mt82 getrag is used and a stock gt clutch, because the transmisson specs arent explained other than a shifter. Its a shame they cant at least give the 6060 trans. :frusty:

Another great thing is the ability to express ones opinion. :thumbsup:

Expect ADM up the yin yang.
It doesn't work like it does with the GT350. You buy a GT from your dealer and then its sent to Shelby American to be converted into a SuperSnake. I believe you can even finance it all through your dealer :)

Much better than what Ford unveiled earlier this week *cough* Mustang 2018 *cough* in the looks department, although I still like the GT350 more than any other Mustang variation/model year of this generation (S550).

Performance numbers sound interesting, though.

Sounds like a more reasonable way to go. If the dealers were selling them after the mods, I'm sure they'd be raping everyone with ADM.

Gaaah back again with the mesh grille held in with rivets!

I'm sorry but it looks so cheap and trashy...2001 called and wants their "sick custom parts" back.

However..the 1.2G on a skid is impressive...it seems they actually did do some custom engineering on the suspension/wheel/tire combo to help get there.
Agreed. And the stripes. Common... branch out. I know it's just a sticker but... yikes. And the front bumper... needed to be different than stock. Hell, get Steeda's bumper on there to at least up-class it a bit. Ahwell... not something that'd make me run to the dealer to pay ADM. :tsk:

If you want to play a fun game, check out the engine compartment and see how many times you can count the word "Shelby"
