Benefitting from an extensive redesign effort the very year it came out, this 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is about as sharp an example of upper echelon Mustangs as you're likely to find. It's also lightly travelled - having logged only 3,484 miles - so it's in its mechanical prime and carries some serious power under its hood to go along with an exterior tastefully modified at the hands of the Shelby team that's been associated with performing wizardry on this respected model pretty much since its debut.
Finished in brilliant Grabber Blue with red Shelby stripes, THIS is the Mustang you always wished Ford would build. You just know that as soon as they started moving forward with the retro-look, it was probably only a matter of minutes before some designer had sketched up a muscle-bound Shelby variant. With just 3,484 miles on the odometer, this Shelby GT500 is pretty much as new in every measurable way and the highest praise we can offer such a car is that it is factory fresh. There are some extremely minor signs of ever having been on the road, which means no scuffed chin spoiler, no road rash behind the wheel arches, and only one or two chips on the nose. Heck, even the tires look fresh, but you just know someone burned off a few thousandths in a parking lot somewhere, creating some expensive tire smoke. Only 523 Grabber Blue cars were built in 2010 (this one is #404), making it one of the rarer models, although looking at this one, you have to wonder why it wasn't more popular, because it's drop-dead gorgeous.
Inside, the charcoal black leather seats with bright red stripe inserts look absolutely fantastic, and believe it or not, still smell new. There's almost zero wear on the driver's seat, no scuffs on the door sills, and the carpets have been protected since day one by floor mats. Shelbys came only one way: loaded. As a result there were few options available, and those that were are included in this car. Among them is the Shaker 1000 stereo system with enough power to make your ears bleed, and things like A/C, power windows, keyless entry, and cruise control were all standard equipment. And being a modern muscle car, this blue beast offers the safety of both a driver and passenger airbag. The trunk is standard Mustang, which means decent space all finished in mouse-fur upholstery and houses a speaker box for two subwoofers. That's right, there's some boom to go with that growl.
This GT500 fully delivers on the promise of its aggressive exterior. The 5.4 liter supercharged V8 sitting in a very clean engine bay produces an outstanding 540 horsepower with standard tuning and it sounds awesome - deep and commanding, without being too overbearing. The powerplant teams with a 6-speed manual transmission to give you full control of the otherworldly output on hand. Shelby focused a lot of effort on taking the Mustang's already agile handling to a new level, adding suspension improvements in both front and back that upped skidpad performance while not compromising drivability in more commonly encountered situations - while many performance-centric cars are a task to drive, this car certainly isn't one of them. Upgraded power disc brakes at all four corners bring rapid stops, while smooth power steering adds to this Shelby's driver-friendliness as it liquifies asphalt on its 19" SVT wheels outfitted with 255/40/19 (front) and 285/35/19 (rear) Bridgestone low profile tires.
Exceptional power and tasteful, stare-inducing looks make this 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 a must-see. And with only 3,484 miles on the odometer, it's still waiting to get broken-in. Call today!
