2008 Ford Shelby GT500 for sale in Chicago, IL. Quick, name the most powerful Ford Mustang ever. If you think it\s from the late 1960s or early \70s, go back to listening to that Jimi Hendrix eight-track -- you\re a few decades off. The correct answer is the 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. With a 500-horsepower supercharged V8, this \"King of the Road\" Mustang promises to push its jockey into the seat with even more gusto than any pony of the past.
In addition to the supercharged V8, the Shelby GT500 features a six-speed manual transmission, a tuned suspension, sticky 18-inch Goodyear F1 supercar tires and meaty Brembo brakes with 14-inch front rotors fitted with four-piston front calipers. Of course there are the obligatory racing stripes, emblazoned with \"GT500\" just like its Age of Aquarius forerunner. Of course there\s a beefed-up chassis that\s up to the task of handling all the power belted out by that monster motor.
It all works quite well -- the Shelby GT500 is more than a one-dimensional straight-line stormer. It\s actually a more agile performer than a few things on its spec sheet might suggest -- 2-ton curb weight, big and heavy engine up front, low-tech solid rear axle in the rear. Quick-ratio steering, along with an unobtrusive traction control system, allows for plenty of tail-out thrills. Massive rubber fore and aft (front tires are 255/45R18s, while those in back measure 285/40R18) does a respectable job of managing all that power and weight.
This 2008 Shelby GT500 has only 2,024 miles on it, and it hasn\t even begun to be broken in, yet. Don\t miss your chance to own this GT500 with fewer miles than most 2012 models, but at a price point that just makes sense come full circle.
