2010 Shelby GT500
For the 2010 launch Ford’s Special Vehicle Team has produced a 2010 Mustang Shelby GT500 for the Detroit show. This vehicle is the ultimate edition of America’s ultimate muscle car.
The Ford engineers have been hard at work engineering and improving the Shelby GT500. Tweaking this model in many ways all to deliver optimal performance and power. The 2010 Shelby GT500 most interesting features are a larger grille up front, an aluminum power-dome hood, a new spoiler with functional Gurney flap. Other improvement were made to the cars handling, efficiency and shifting pressure for the best performance at any speed.
The 2010 Shelby GT500 is the most powerful Shelby ever, hitting 540 hp and 510 lb.-ft. of torque, brought to you by a 5.4-liter dual overhead cam V-8 engine. And with updates to suspension tuning, new dampers, springs, and anti-roll bars — the Shelby is better equipped than ever to put all that power squarely in the driver’s control.
Acknowledging how distinct the Shelby is to the 2010 Mustang lineup, the design team gave it an interior to match: real leather on all seats, real aluminum on the instrument panel, luxurious Alcantara inserts on the seats and steering wheel, satin liquid chrome finish on gauge cluster rings. All in a cabin outfitted with the latest Ford technology and refined to allow just the right amount of that unmistakable Shelby noise in.
This bold new addition to the Mustang legacy hits showrooms in spring 2009.
