2011 Ford Shelby GT500: First Drive

The Shelby GT500 is too much car for not enough man. OK, depending on who you are it might actually be the right amount of car. Heck, if you're Brandon Davis, who clinched last year's World Challenge championship in a Mustang Cobra, it might not be enough. But for mere mortals, it's a monstrously powerful and frighteningly fast machine.

That's not to say the GT500 is an unwieldy performance monster. In fact, it's quite the opposite. It's nothing like an early Viper or original Porsche Turbo, vehicles that essentially had too much power for not enough car. Sure the GT500 has tremendous amounts of horsepower – 550 to be exact – but the rest of the car is not outmatched by the big supercharged V8 – which is quite a feat of engineering.
