Of modern day muscle cars, the Shelby GT500 is a lust inspiring paradox of a machine. You have the brutal supercharged V8 propelling the rear wheels and solid rear axle on the hand. You have a relatively compact car with an up to date interior and exterior design on the other hand. The exterior being arguably the best Mustang design ever. Throw in a boy racer stripe or two and a gaping front intake and you’ve got a thrilling ride. That huge upper and lower grill opening really sets the GT500 apart from lesser Mustangs and truly makes the design. It reminds me of Indy race cars and jets of the 50’s. It also communicates a massive thirst for air for combustion and thrust!
