SUMMARY * 1-owner car that's logged only 45 miles * 5.4 liter supercharged V8 / 500 horsepower * Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual transmission * Borla cat-back exhaust system * Sale includes an original window sticker and original inspection paperwork * SVT-tuned suspension * 4-wheel power disc brakes /Brembo front calipers * Shaker 500 audio system ---------- By now, there's really no need for a Carroll Shelby history lesson. We're all very familiar with Shelby's contributions to the automotive world, especially in regard to the legendary Mustang. Shel's pony cars have always been great to look at and even better to drive, giving examples like this tailored drop-top virtually universal appeal. 1 of just 2,070 GT500 convertibles built for the 2008 model year, and 1 of just 223 to leave the line in Vapor and Black aesthetics, this Ford is a fairly rare piece any way you slice it. More impressive numbers live under the hood, where a completely unaltered drivetrain twists 500 horsepower into 480 lb./ft. of torque. And the car's most impressive stats come via history, with only one owner who logged a mere 45 miles of road time! Looking for a future collectable? Want a genuinely fun weekend warrior? This clean convertible is a great solution for a relatively tidy sum! BODYWORK/TRIM Wearing a silky layer of Vapor Metallic 2-stage under sinister Shelby call-outs, this spotless Mustang has a history of meticulous care. Like most of our low-mileage, factory-fresh pieces, its body presents as new in every conceivable way. That body's shiny, wet-look panels are 100% straight and, according to a clean CARFAX, have no history of accidents or damage. And a close look down the car's sculpted fuselage reveals world-class finishing that, by far, creates one of the nicest late-model Fords we've ever seen! When up close and personal with Ford's GT500, it becomes clear the firm's designers focused on creating a car that looks tailored and substantial in comparison to its lesser counterparts. And this killer Mustang, with its high quality body kit, panther-like stance and fully detailed exterior, is about as substantial as it gets! At the front of the mean mare, a familiar Mustang grille hangs an offset Cobra emblem between optional HID headlights, a small splitter and a sculpted valance that's complete with traditional fog lamps. At the top of that grille, an aluminum hood centers racy LeMans striping in front of a tight top and chip-free glass. At the base of that glass, black rockers and black mirrors frame tough Shelby emblems. And behind those rockers, factory taillights, a bold trunk script and a GT500-exclusive faux fuel filler reflect a large, trunk-mounted spoiler and an aggressive valance that's pierced by polished Borla exhaust tips. ENGINE The reborn GT500 celebrated one of the most successful partnerships in performance car history. Take a look under this Mustang's lightweight hood and you'll find a blown 'mod motor' that was heavily influenced by Ford's GT super car. And what's better: by utilizing a cast iron block, aluminum heads, forged internals and dual overhead camshafts, this rowdy torque monster makes great power while mixing surprising efficiency with a docile nature. Twist the key and the big V8 rumbles to life, pushing baritone notes through an X-shaped crossover and Borla cat-back exhaust system. Goose the throttle and a roots-style supercharger creates 10 to 12 pounds of pressure while zinging the engine toward redline. Deliver one serious jab at the go-pedal, and you'll find out why dictionaries are starting to list the name Carroll Shelby under the word performance. Aesthetically, this Ford's spotless bay looks assembly line-fresh, eschewing the kind flash you'd expect from such a pedigreed car for, dare I say, a bit of a 'sleeper' vibe. But to anyone who knows anything about performance, the big blower, small SVT badging and silver POWERED BY SVT cam covers are a dead giveaway that they're
