  1. Congratulations on the New Shelby GT, I am typically a spoiler guy, but the Shelby GT should be Naked!!!
  2. I love those wheels too, almost bought them instead of my CS69’s. I do recall either those or the CS66 had less “Big Brake” room then the CS69, but I think you are right, I’m pretty sure that was the 18”. I don’t know for sure unfortunately, but just wanted to say I hope you get them, they are beautiful rims!!!
  3. That’s what I’m thinking too. The problem is most Ford dealers are clueless, they still had ADM’s on the Focus RS a year after it was discontinued, they couldn’t give them away. Then Ford thinks the demand isn’t there and it was a Flop when reality is if they weren’t greedy with ADM’s they would’ve sold every one quickly. They did the same with the Boss 302 and they are currently doing it with the New Raptor. I just bought a brand new Ram 1500 Limited, my other choice was the Ford Raptor, the price difference with discounts is ridiculous. Not to mention mine has significantly more options and a MUCH nicer interior. I love the New GT500, but overall Ford has work to do......
  4. Absolutely LOVE that color combo!!! Look at that no one expected this to be prices so aggressively, hats off to GM!!! GT500???? Sorry no chance I would pay the same, much less more, for the new GT500. The amount of folks switching to the C8 from GT500 is significant. People are brand loyal, this won’t just hurt Mustang sales. Once people love their New C8 the GM Daily Driver won’t be far behind for some.
  5. Those are my 2 favorite too!!! Rapid Blue with the blue 2-Tone interior and Zeus Brown with the Natural Leather.
  6. Many dealers selling at MSRP, this car is going to be incredible. Good luck getting ADM’s on the GT500 when this is cheaper. I would even bet the 495 HP will be as fast or faster then the GT500 because of weight and traction. Its a great time to be a Car-guy, this might be my first Corvette!!!
  7. I agree 100%, well stated.
  8. Judging by the enthusiasm about this car on the "Team Shelby" forum I would say the ADM's will not last long. The New Corvette subject has significantly more posts in one day then this new release has had since it was announced, and that is on this forum. Personally I am not surprised, it was to be expected, I also think they will learn fast that the demand for ADM's will wear out fast. Time will tell, but history shows that will be the case.
  9. I could not agree more. The 2 cars you mention are so much nicer then the GT500 it’s not even close. Anyone that pays that is foolish. Even the Audi R8, Lexus LC500, Jaguar S-Type, used Viper GTS, I can go on and on. You can’t sell a car, at least to me, over or even close to $100K with the fit and finish of the Mustang, I don’t care how powerful it is.
  10. Outstanding it’s crazy this is a Shelby forum and no one is even posting about this car. Congrats!!!!!
  11. Personally I don’t like the look of the CF Kit, that’s an easy option to leave off. Compared to the Supersnake it’s a Bargain, but that’s really apples/oranges. I’m thinking about it, I do think they nailed it.
  12. For the same amount of money I would buy a 2013/14 GT500 all day long. Just my 2 cents. As far as where it was built I will just speak for the Shelby GT/SC, back when I had mine completed Tasca got better reviews then SAI, things have changed significantly since then. I know there was a lot of friction because Tasca ran “Specials” that were significantly cheaper than SAI and they would also do any other mods you wanted at the same time, SAI was not open to doing so. With this type of work a Dyno should be included, Tasca did it at delivery, I thought that was awesome, SAI didn’t do them at all.
  13. Looks like $74K to start, I think that isn’t too bad, but I guess it depends on what options are stock. After looking more it looks like the one I would order would be around $80K, I would want the electronics package $3K, handling package $1500, and Carbon Dash $1000. Possibly the black top $695 instead of stripes and maybe the Recaro seats $1595. Last might be Twister Orange which adds $495. I guess that equals closer to $82K. PLEASE offer wheels that aren’t black, the black wheel craze is getting old fast... https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/future-cars/a28221698/2020-ford-shelby-gt500-msrp-options/
  14. Stiff competition at those prices, they better have real stitching on the dashboard and a higher build quality, this is Z06 money. Actually with the discounts on the Z06 this is priced higher. I can’t wait to see a production version.
  15. This might have me finally moving on from my Shelby GT/SC, but I’ll wait out the ADM’s. I thought about the GT350, but the Oil Issues aren’t something I want to deal with. I’m guessing $75K will get you a decent GT500, time will tell. Hopefully pricing comes soon. I’m loving this Car!!!!
