Our 2008 Ford Shelby GT500 has the same supercharged 5.4-liter V8 that was fitted to Ford’s recently departed GT supercar but with a wet-sump oil system, a cast-iron block, and a “Roots-type” supercharger. The result is 500 hp and 480 pound-feet of torque.
Performance testing has yielded very impressive numbers like the 4.6-second 0-60-mph sprint and a 12.8-second time for the quarter-mile.
A Tremec six-speed manual gearbox routes all that through a 3.31 limited-slip rear axle and Antilock disc brakes by Brembo feature four-piston calipers and 14-inch rotors up front with two-piston calipers and 11.8-inch discs in back are standard, as is traction control.
With more power than any of the revered Shelby Mustangs of the 1960s, the 2008 Ford Shelby GT500 offers performance that’s nothing short of intoxicating.
In addition it has a tuned suspension, sticky 18-inch supercar tires and meaty Brembo brakes with 14-inch front rotors fitted with four-piston front calipers, racing stripes, emblazoned with “GT500” and that beefed-up chassis to handle all the power belted out by that monster motor.
The interior on ours is all-black and has the Premium Package that gives you with twin leather bucket seats that are aggressively bolstered to hold one in place during hard cornering, stitched leather trim for the top of the dash, upgraded door trim, aluminum sport pedals, aluminum shifter knob, and metallic trim that’s scattered about the cabin.
The instruments include a boost gauge and a trip computer/message center and it has Sirius Satellite Radio, black carpet and floor mats, HID headlights, DVD Navigation system, and a stereo radio system.
Our GT500 is painted in a sinister black package with the “GT500” hood and side stripes over the nose and tail, has hood-mounted heat extractors, a front air splitter, a ducktail-style rear spoiler, and comes with 18-inch alloy wheels shod with high-performance front and rear.
There isn’t much that looks better than a clean black sports car with styling cues from the 60s.
Our 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 we have here at Skyway Classics with its 500-horsepower supercharged V8 pays a tasteful tribute to the original GT500 along with performance that will embarrass the legendary Boss 429, today’s GT500 is a bargain.
