2010 Shelby GT500

The entire Mustang line received a redesigned body for the 2010 model year and the GT500 got a special version all its own that concentrated on the hood, nose and grille. Powertrain improvements used on the 2008-09 GT500KR found their way to the 2010 GT500, as the horsepower level now matched the 540 found in “King of the Road” GT500s. SVT suspension upgrades, including stiffer springs, served to improve ride and handling both on the road and at the track.
