Here is an eye-catching and ear-catching car. It's a 2009 Ford Mustang - Shelby GT500 in Performance White with red stripes. It offers everything you'd want from a car like this low mileage (13k), clean history, excellent condition, and a few upgrades giving more than 600 hp.
You may be familiar with the late model Shelby GT500. The 2009 model is equipped with a supercharged 5.4L engine rated at 500hp from the factory, mated to a 6-speed Tremec manual transmission. Other standard performance features include an SVT tuned suspension and Brembo front brakes with 14" vented discs. You also got a special aluminum hood with air extractors, which distinguishes the car from other Mustangs, along with a dual tuned exhaust with x-pipe. Overall it's a great package of performance equipment, especially on a production vehicle.
/> Additional standard GT500 equipment includes fog lights, rear spoiler, body kit, and 18" aluminum wheels. ABS and traction control are also there, which can be good things on a car like this. Inside you will find special sport bucket seats with the Cobra logo and light toned gauges, including a boost gauge. This car is also equipped the Shaker 500 audio system with CD changer and auxiliary input.
Now the GT500 is a great performing car from the factory, but this one has a few upgrades to make things even more exciting. Under the hood is a Steeda air intake and overdrive pulley, while the exhaust has been changed to a Corsa setup that now only adds power but has a fantastic sound. The entire setup has been professionally tuned and produces 540 hp at the wheels, or about 630 hp on the motor.
This is an absolutely beautiful Shelby in a hard-to-find color combination I think it looks even nicer in person than in pictures. It gives tremendous performance and can outrun almost anything it meets, yet remains comfortable and easy to drive. All for less money than a new pickup. If you're in the market for a performance Mustang this should definitely be on your list!
