2012 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500

Born in Leesburg, Texas, Carroll Shelby seemed to be a man obsessed with speed his whole life. He was a flight instructor in World War II before he moved on to piloting land-based vehicles. It wasn't long before he started racing cars. For his first driving competition, a quarter mile drag race, he drove a flathead Ford V8 powered hot rod. He proved talented enough to upgrade to racing Aston Martin's in Europe, breaking land speed records at the Bonneville Flats and being named Sports Illustrated's Sports Car Driver of the Year twice. Shelby's crowning race achievement came in 1959 when he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In 1960, heart problems forced Shelby to leave racing behind, despite his objections. That was only the start of Shelby's contributions to motor history. In 1962, Shelby started having dreams centered around one word: Cobra. It's a word that has since entered the dreams of many a Mustang-enthusiast, synonymous with outrageous performance.

For consignment an outrageous performer, with a supercharger, and now having 750 horses. This black cloaked ground pounder, with a performance handling package, a racing 3” exhaust, and an intercooler. Is the definition of the doppler effect on the exhaust when this car streaks by!

Described as immaculate, and when seen in person, it fits perfectly. Black cloaking drapes this entire car, and as to menacing aspect, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Panels are razor straight, and paint is pristine. Black 19” Shelby wheels wrapped in low profile rubber, and we are ready to do some damage.

Driving a rocket ship requires seats that can hold on to you as you speed along. This car is up to that task interior wise, with excellent condition gray leather buckets in front and some dual buckets forming a bench integrated into the back. The center console races up the middle of the front buckets and has the 6-speed white knobbed gearshift lever within its confines. Moving our wandering eyes upward, we see climate controls, and an AM/FM/Sirius/DVD player with a sync and navigation upgrade. Just a fine example of a comfortable yet safe and sporty beautiful interior.

The mild mannered original (ONLY) 500 HP 5.4 liter DOHC V8 has now had a bit of an upgrade with the addition of a 2.9 Liter Whipple Twin screw supercharger, with a “Crusher” inlet, a Whipple 123 MM MAF housing and zip tube, as well as a Ford racing 65MM dual bore throttle body. This has been calibrated with a Ford Racing ProCal tool giving it significantly improved throttle response. Best of all street legal in all 50 states! But I digress as we need to shout out to the TR-6060 6 Speed manual transmission and Ford 8.8” 3.73 geared rear.

As black and sparkling clean as the top, no problems under here. Power discs all around featuring Brembo 14” discs in front. A dual Ford racing 3” exhaust system works its way to the rear.

Over this writer's head, but our crack muscle car enthusiast and decoder was drooling over taking this one for a spin. In our massive parking lot, we are very limited to even try to push a car like this, but he noted all is fine on the starting front, shifting was smooth, clutch was tight, and there was plenty of acceleration to go around even at 1/4 throttle. In fact, one would never just nail this throttle or you would find yourself with the rear of the car passing you, which is not good!

A low mileage (15,230 original mile car), never raced or manhandled, garage kept and respected by our responsible adult consigner. A street legal race car essentially, all beautiful, and a boatload of available power assets.
