    I'd go with the GT500, it's rarer, plus, I've never been much for the CTS's.

    Absolutely no contest. The Mustang is a piece of $hit. Always has been, always will be. Then again what would you expect for a bargain basement pony car. Camaro was no better, so not a hater, just speaking from experience. I realize there are no competitors for the Mustang to compare to so these kind of threads are inevitable. But c'mon, a Caddy to a Ford?

    GT500, I think it'll be an animal once you do some performance upgrades like exhaust and stuff............

    Not a good comparison IMO. Mustangs are no where near a luxury sports car, they're just a cheap pony car. And yes the Mustang will be faster than the V. So is a liter bike, but that doesn't mean I'd want to ride one all the time.

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

    The new GT500 hands down! I've always liked Mustangs and the old Shelby GT500 is definetly one of the greatest sports cars ever made. The new one can't hold a candle to the ones on the 60's, but it does justice to the Shelby name.

    Mustangs are no where near a luxury sports car, they're just a cheap pony car.

    I hate to pick a fight, but I disagree with you 100%. Mustangs AREN'T and DON'T WANT TO BE a luxury sports car, they are meant for speed and pure thrill. We aren't discussing the Mustang though, we're talking about the 2007Shelby GT500 based on the Mustang platform. The GT500, first off, isn't a "cheap pony car", the base price is $45,000 without options. The engine is a 475 HP (that alone would sell me) 5.4L supercharged V8.

    The CTS-V is a nice car for the family, but isn't even comparable to the GT500. The clientle that will buy the GT500 wouldn't even want a Cadillac! Both cars have COMPLETELY different markets that they appeal to, but I'd take the Shelby over a CTS-V anyday! (I'm not saying the CTS-V is a bad car, but I prefer the Shelby)

    I agree with you completely but just the opposite conclusion. The GT500 isn't cheap in price just in build quality and ammenities. It is a 475HP Mustang with a handling package. Nothing will be done to address the cheap looking interior amongst it's other faults.

    Also agree that the CTS-V and the GT500 are uncomparable. One is a high quality, 4 door sedan with loads of ammenities. The other is a boy racer pony car or questionable quality. I would never take a GT500 over a Caddy for the same reason I wouldn't take a WRX STi, EVO 8 or similar. All good cars for what they are, just not luxurious enough.

    The interior is a bit improved over the Mustang GT, but still isn't up to Cadillac standards. The Shelby name alone, is enough to sell the GT500. But, like we said, these cars are in totally different leagues...who's the idiot that started this thread?

    The CTS-V is comparable to the Lexus GS430 and BMW 5-Series.
    The Shelby GT500 is in a league of its own.

    Well what are you looking for in this comparison? Are you talking performance? Ammenities *sp?*? But if your talking performance the GT500 will eat a CTS-V alive. The last gen Cobra is good for mid to upper 12's in stock trim, now you add more hp and tq and your seeing 11's. The GT500 will be the best bang for the buck car out there. And all you need to do then is a pulley swap and hello mid 11's!

    No argument. Just doubt many are cross-shopping the two vehicles.

    That's not really a valid comparison being that the 03-04 cobra is a totally different car with a very different motor. I wouldn't automatically give the GT500 11s quite yet, then again I wouldn't doubt it if I saw some timeslips in the very high 11s.
