If the interior is anything like the last gen Mustang...I'd pass on it like I was Jason Kidd.

BMW gave me a 2007 Mustang as loaner once and the interior sucked severely. Not to mention it was hard to see from the inside.

There is nothing in the 335 price range worth a crap to me. The only choices are a slightly more expensive s4/s5 and maybe a cayman s. I wouldnt touch a mustang for anything especially if I could get a bmw instead. No idea where the boobies came from? I didnt see any?

I think the fun factor of the car with the super charged v8 is starting to intrigue me. I mean 540 horses and I think 500 lbs of torque sound nice.

It was ok until the guy started boasting about cue ball shift knob Yeah, cool that's made by a real cue ball manufacturer, but I'm guessing that buyers will be more concened with whether it will match the hanging dice.

Not all that impressed with the drag times either.

Funny thing was they kept saying they were racing into a 20mph wind but their hair was hardly blowing.
I just assumed that the cue ball shift knob was an old retro style that fit in with the car but the comment was funny. I bet the thing is comfortable in your hand though.

Edmunds said that while it handles better, it's definitely still a straight line car, and it has a tendency to rear up a little bit under hard acceleration.

Be careful what you wish for.

My wife drives a 07 Mustang convertible (not Shelby GT) and she loves it. The Shelby GT500 is everything they say it is and more....and here's what I mean by more:

If what they are saying is true, you can never afford to repair the car.

Example: Hood $21,000

With less than a grand worth of mods, you can also enjoy seeing that car in your rear view mirror.

I think you are correct...but most anything with Shelby on it is generally $$$$$$.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have that monster.
