The fucking coolest man ever. Responisble for works of art like the GT40, GT350, the GT500, and the Cobra. As well he introdueced the 427 into Ford's lineup. Shelby later went on to design the Dodge Viper and had input on projects like the Dodge Daytona.

Ford Motor Company devotes all of it's high performance energies to the V8 Mustangs, such as "Bullit", "GT", "Mach 1", "COBRA", and "GT500".
So what do you call a V6 Mustang with over 300 HP? The slang term is "King Snake".
The SHELBY CS6 is a good example of a "King Snake". It has a SuperCharged V6 making 350 HP.
The new(er) Shelby GT 500 release (07-current) shebly performance that has teamed up with kenne bell and ford release the baddest mustang ever. There are two available options. Base package is a 600HP 5.4L Supercharged V8. New in 2009 is an upgraded package that comes with 725HP that comes with a Kenne Bell supercharger, replacing the Ford Racing unit. No other changes are made.
Beavis: Dude, did you see the new Shelby GT 500?
Beavis: The GT 500 will smoke any car on the road stock for stock. It comes with 725 HP.
A car that can't do anything right. People always mention how the Performance/Price ratio is great, but all the Mustang GTs I've seen were between $32k - $36k from factory. It has a 4.8 liter V8 making only 315hp and 325tq. It has a live-rear axle and horrible suspension which makes it impossible to have fun on back roads. But here you're still thinking this: My Mustang GT is the king of the drag strip. WRONG! The Nissan 370Z can not only put a smile on your face in the twisty bit but it can beat a merely GT on the straights. Now your thinking wait a minute the Z is way more expensive!!!! WRONG AGAIN! A fully optioned out Nissan 370Z is about $3k more than an optioned out Mustang GT. Next time you look at your recently purchased American Muscle car, you can now be positive that you bought the wrong car.
Cocky Mustang GT owner: "That 370Z beat me again. I just need the GT-500 to beat it!"
Cocky Mustang GT owner's friend: "Why pay $52k for another pos when you can have a corvette or a 335i for $44k? I don't why I'm friends with you!"
They were shit. Now they're the best cars available these days. Can make more power with less fuel and cost than their Asian and European counterparts, and also reliable. Contrary to beliefs, they can actually turn, in fact they're one of the best handling cars ever. Corvette ZR1 and Dodge Viper ACR are slower than Nissan GTR, but they managed to smoke it on Nurburgring track by 20 buses length.
Ford Fusion > Camry
Chevy Volt > prius
Ford Focus > VW Golf
American cars are bigger, faster, more powerful, cooler, cheaper, less fuel drinker, and less rice than euro and azn cars.
Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta are one of the best selling cars in Europe.
