THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

When it was introduced in mid-2006 the 2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was the most powerful factory built Mustang in history. Further, It got its "Shelby" moniker the old fashioned way, by involving Carroll Shelby in the process of specification and design, just like the last of the Shelby Mustangs – including the famous KR – did.

Its specifications are ominous. Inside the 5.4 liter, 32-valve iron block V-8 are specially calibrated camshafts. The block is topped with the GT's aluminum heads, then a special low profile aluminum intake manifold force fed at a maximum of 8.5psi (.58 atmospheres) boost from a positive displacement Eaton R122 Roots-type supercharger with a water-to-air intercooler. The result is over 500 brake horsepower at 6,000rpm with 480lb-ft torque at 4,500 rpm.

A Tremec T-56 six-speed transmission hooked up by a twin disc Valeo clutch was the driver's only choice to handle the power of this brute, but it's what's at the back of the car that is more interesting. Ford's Special Vehicle Team, SVT, went old-school, returning to the tried-and-true live rear axle setup employed so successfully on the spec-racer Mustang FR500C series including positive three-link (Panhard rod and trailing arms) location and coil springs.

Unlike its predecessors among Ford's high performance Mustangs the '07 Shelby GT500 is equipped with just about every comfort, convenience and luxury available including power rack and pinion steering, power assisted 4-wheel disc brakes, power windows, power locks, air conditioning and a 6-disc CD changer stereo with factory subwoofer. The Shelby GT500 includes special front and rear panels including an extractor scoop on the hood needed to clear the blower and a reshaped rear panel that sure looks like it's 1969 all over again.

The example presented here in the classic white with blue stripe Shelby Livery, has had the remarkable distinction of having just one owner from new and under 200 miles on the odometer. With so few miles, it should come as no surprise that the vehicle has remained in spectacular condition. One mark is on the car however- that being the signature of Carroll Shelby himself. Truly a collector grade Mustang, this example should not be passed on my serious collectors.
