a new 09 for 27k? Is it a basic GT or a premium GT? Leather seats(heated) upgraded stereo, and some smaller things might be missing on the basic GT (options do vary) The shelby should have most all of those upgrade features if thats something you look into when buying a car. (More of a reason to go with a shelby)I'm looking at a 2008 GT 500 for 35K, or a 09 GT for 27K. From what you guys are saying, it sounds like I will buy the 500. Thanks.
They are two totaly different animals a Mustang GT will take a bit more then $5000. to get it up to 500hp the Supercharger and tune would eat that up quick.
The GT500 if you have the money would be a much better buy if you can get it for a good price because by the time you get a GT close to a GT500 in performance and interior/exterior upgrades the cost would be about the same
Very good point that was slightly overlooked. If you do but a GT and doing work to it skip the warranty if your getting from dealership as it will be QUICKLY voided.Maybe if you had alot of exterior addons. I like my car plain. Im removing the wing and have only a few appearance mods.
But to get GT500 performance it can be done for less money.
2005 Mustang GT 10,000 miles $20,000
Saleen blower and gauges installed $7100
Other parts(clutch, shifter, louvers etc) $3000
I have only saw one GT500 for near that money and it had 70,000 miles on it.
But the GT500 is the better potential deal since my engine is at its limits with 400+rwhp and the GT500 can make 700rwhp with ease on its internals.
