Number 1,672 of only 2,252 GT500s produced for the 2007 model year, this awesome Mustang is an immaculately maintained one-owner car that's seen a few light modifications and very little road time.
Thanks to exceptionally low mileage and impeccable maintenance, this factory fresh GT500 is essentially brand new in every way. There's absolutely nothing on the car's showroom stock body that could be considered anything more than shelf wear. And overall, it's a super slick speed machine which conveys both timeless curb appeal and a premium sense of drivability!
Ford's reborn GT500 celebrated one of the most successful partnerships in performance car history; and thanks to some mild tweaks by Evolution Performance, this Mustang holds nothing back on its way to a dyno-proven 582 rear wheel horsepower! Utilizing an iron block with a forged steel crank, forged steel connecting rods, forged aluminum pistons, aluminum heads and dual overhead camshafts, this rowdy 5.4 liter torque monster makes great muscle car sounds while providing surprising efficiency and a docile nature. Twist the key and new TR6 spark plugs pulse to life, sending a symphony of baritone notes down a 2.5-inch exhaust that's fitted with an X-pipe and dual tips. Goose the throttle and an Eaton M122 supercharger, which has been fitted with a 2.6 inch pulley, combines with an SCT scan and a new idler pulley to zing the engine towards redline. Aesthetically, the car's spotless bay looks assembly line fresh not featuring any of the flash you'd expect for such a pedigreed car, and appearing, dare I say, a bit like a sleeper.
Straight from Dearborn, the D2C Mustang platform is a very capable foundation; and with a few upgrades from Evolution performance, it becomes a true force to be reckoned with! Up front, a Macpherson strut independent suspension makes good use of EVO adjustable upper control arms, EVO billet lower control arms, speed assisted power steering and giant 14 inch discs that are clamped by four piston Brembo calipers. And out back, a three link solid axle rear end makes good use of an EVO adjustable panhard bar, an EVO GT500 panhard bar brace, sporty but efficient 3.31 gears and two piston factory calipers which clamp equally impressive 12 inch discs. That tight suspension is aided by a three point torque box brace, a Ford Racing brake cooling kit, a standard antilock system, and standard traction control; all of which are very welcome if you push the car anywhere near its limits. Spent gases are whisked away by a factory true dual exhaust system which breathes through Ford Racing axle-back pipes. Sending the engines power to the ground is a slick shifting Tremec 6-speed transmission which spins torque past a GT500 driveshaft hoop via a GT500 single speed driveshaft. And all this proven hardware rides on an awesome set of 18 inch machined SVT wheels which spin super sticky 255/45 front and 285/40 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar radials around standard chrome lug nuts.
Inside this Mustang you'll find a comfortable and stylish cockpit that's ready for both short stoplight sprints and long road trips. At the center of the car leather-lined, Cobra-branded bucket seats fit like a glove. Inside the dash, an electro luminescent instrument panel, which features Ford's infinitely variable MyColor accent lighting, rides behind attractive factory trim that's complete with a Carroll Shelby commemorative plaque. Below that dash, a red-stitched Steeda GT400 shifter looks perfect between a padded console and a powerful Shaker 500 audio and DVD-based navigation system. In front of the driver, a factory steering wheel spins a red-stitched leather rim and redundant radio controls around a Cobra-branded horn button. And naturally, all the amenities and convenience features you've come to expect in a modern classic are present and accounted for including climate control, cruise control and full power accessories. Authenticity, pedigree, and race bred performance are what make vintage Shelby's blue chip collectables today; and in the future those same virtues will make cars like this GT500 just as collectible!
