It does look f'n sweet. I still think the best way to go is buy a GT and mod it up, but a GT500 + exhaust = awesome DD.

Quote:
Finally, the SVT Performance Package, designed for the track-day fiend who wants to eke out more performance from the Shelby GT500. The package includes Goodyear EagleŽ F1 SuperCar G:2 tires designed specifically for the Shelby, lighter wheels, stiffer springs, a higher rear axle ratio and all are available on both convertible and hardtop. We're told the package reduces track time by an average of 3 seconds on a 2.3 mile track. So, basically, the Shelby GT500 is lighter, more powerful, gets better fuel economy and is faster around the track. Yes, we're happy about this upgrade.

I didnt say that. I was complaining that you said it. No one cares what the engine bay looks like when its a 550 horse 5.4L V8.

We all know they won't stay @ 550 hp for long. I wonder how long it's going to take before we see the first 1000whp 2011... probably only a month.

If that, I have always liked the fact that when a new Mustang launches the day after the first one is sold you see guys on a dyno putting down 50% more power.

If that. Kenne Bell, exhaust and tune. Done.On the 03-04 Terminator Cobra, that was easy 750 horse package. The 07 GT500, with the "little" 2.8L blower makes 801 on pump gas. Imagine the 4.2L blower that is in development.

It is the same roof from the 2010 GT, it is a "glass roof" as Ford calls it. Not sure how they re-enforce it or anything yet as I have not seen a 2010 with up close.
