2007 Shelby GT500 Coupe – Shelby and Ford returned for the 2007 model year with the Shelby GT500. Introduced at the 2005 New York International Auto Show, the GT500 uses a supercharged and intercooled Modular 5.4 L; 330.0 cu in (5,408 cc)V8 engine rated at 500 hp (507 PS; 373 kW) @ 6,000 rpm and 480 lb⋅ft (651 N⋅m) @ 4,500 rpm of torque. Features include the Tremec TR-6060 6-speed manual transmission, suspension tuning, a body kit, and 18 inch wheels. Deliveries of the Shelby GT500 began in May 2006. A collaboration of Ford’s SVT and Carroll Shelby, the GT500 was produced in limited quantity for three years (approximately 10,000 units per year) on the line at Ford’s Flat Rock, Michigan (AutoAlliance) assembly facility.
Not only are we blessed by being surrounded with classic vehicles but, we are also surrounded by classic car owners and a multitude of stories. Probably the story we hear the most is the one where the owner sold the rare muscle car for about 1/20th of it’s current value. For the savvy investor, this tragic story doesn’t have to repeat itself. US car manufacturers are still producing limited edition vehicles that hold their value and appreciate if well maintained. This exceptional Shelby GT500 is one such vehicle. Although it has been very tastefully upgraded, the owner kept all the factory components and wheel which are included with this sale. Also included is a large folder that documents every penny spent on this low mile GT500. To further set this beauty apart from any others you will find, this example is offered in the stunning Grabber Orange with Tungsten stripes and has only seen 3,391 miles of asphalt over the last 12 years. Top to bottom, this Shelby is showroom new and needs absolutely nothing. If you are looking for the best of the best …. look no further!
