    Re: 2006 Carol Shelby Mustang VS 2006 CTS-V?

    Met one of the guys who works on the transmission that is this Mustang. Great guy, and the auto show was closing down and he had to stick around to make sure the car was treated correctly.

    I asked if he could pop the hood, he said he would love to but loves much more to keep his job. This was back in Febuary btw.

    Anyway he said the numbers weren't final but upwards of 475 is where it's looking and it will be supercharged. One of the guys who talks about the car on the stage said they were trying to not to call it the Cobra, but rather aviod that name and just call it the GT500, Shelby Mustang, Shelby GT500, but not Shelby Cobra, or Cobra, or Cobra Mustang.

    One thing that ticked me off is that the Ford GT WAS NOT on the showroom, the ran out of floor space and instead of takeing away one of the 3 Lincoln Zephers the GT (the pace car for the company) sat on the truck the whole show, saw it as I was leaving and asked the trucker why it on the truck, thats the reason he told me.

    Pictures:




    The Mustang is for the driver in us all and for the guy who hasn't grown up yet, the car nut.
    The CTS-V is for the guy who cares about Luxury and all the refinement stuff but still be able to get up and go to 60 in under 5. Might have to crate around business partners or kids too.

    Anothe reason why they probably didn't have the GT there was because this is the last year for them so they probably figured why bother putting it in the show when its all but done

    the shelby in a class of it's own?

    I agree that you can't compare the shelby to the v-series, but it will will be in a class with the GTO, the camaro Z28, and the challenger SRT8, to name a few. Especially if the GTO and Z28 are the same car with a different badge...

    THANK YOU DETROIT, HORSEPOWER WARS ARE BACK!!!


    /edit/ why are they trying so hard to avoid letting "cobra" escape their lips when they have those retarded snake badges all over the car?

    this is'nt much of a comparison.the Shelby GT500 would essentially mop the floor with the CTS-V.now if the CTS had the 505bhp motor ,it might be a different story.

    I'm hoping that it's because this ugly-ass monstrosity is just a stand-in until a REAL Cobra hits the streets. After a long awaited return, this car is such a let down in my book. Yeah, it's fast but it doesn't have half the bad-ass looks of the last Cobra IMO.

    I couldn't agree more...

    Here's the real news. The Shelby Mustang's times are sorry as hell for a 475 hp, supposedly under-rated pony car. I've seen 12.8 - 13.1 quarter mile times. That's all you've got?! Hell, SRT-8's are hitting those times. Hardly worth the Shelby name or the $10K upcharge.
