2007 Shelby GT500

After Ford Division mainstreamed Special Vehicle Team operations and entered into a new business relationship with Carroll Shelby in 2006, the car that SVT had engineered to be the all-new SVT Mustang Cobra came to market as the 2007 Ford Shelby GT500. Based on the all-new S197 Mustang platform and equipped with a special 500-horsepower supercharged version of the 5.4-liter V-8, this modern-day Shelby GT500 took the muscle car world by storm with looks that mirror the classic’s and the kind of power and performance previously unheard of in any factory-built Ford Mustang.
