GT500 Car Cover Question

My 2011 GT500 did not come with a cover. From Ford they are about $450. I want to use it when the car is parked outside. Is the Ford cover an inside or outside cover? Any pics?

I don't think I would use mine shown in pic outside? Any movement would cause some abrasion causing major paint headaches. This is the cover I ordered from puchasing SVT dealer. sorry, not much help.

Thanks for the pic and the info. It looks like the one that came with my Viper SRT - I used it in Arizona for three months. It had some sewn in soft pieces on the edges. The One that came with my Viper GTS was think and totally soft, but it has never been used outside.

Does it have felt inside?

No, this one does'nt. Might not be much of a chore to add something for protection such as felt? It also has a belly sinch and that might help reduce or eliminate movement but I'd be very cautious still when using outside.

I juste received mine today and it fits perfect. It's the OEM shelby cover, just the same as pictured above. I bougth it on ebay for 308$ + shipping, much cheaper than what your dealer is asking for, and it's the same cover.
