The performance on this car is gonna rock. I do have some gripes though.
1.fog lights-they should be put in the middle of the grille
2.side scoops/vents- ones that actually work or just for looks
3.rear quarter window scoops
4.tail lights- longer like the 67 & 68 GT500's the lights on there now are
exactly like the GT's. Thats poor!
5.reverse lights- should be moved to the lower rear spoiler/bumper
6.wheels- look more like the original shelby 10 spoke or newstalgia GT or
FR500's. All 19-20"s with spinner caps. I don't see why ford
does not put bigger wheels, saleen has them.
7.camshaft covers- should read COBRA powered by SVT
8.steering wheel- more like the Shelby wood grain wheel
9.interior-the red has got to go. i was hoping they would do something
more similar to the 04 Cobra. suede is great, no sticky or hot
seats in the summer
10.Reduce weight- fiberglass, aluminum, carbon fiber

IF YOU ARE GONNA CALL THIS CAR A SHELBY THEN IT SHOULD FIT THE PART. NOT JUST SOME GT WITH A DIFFERENT FASCIA AND BIGGER MOTOR. I AM A DIE HARD SHELBY FAN AND I DON'T WANT TO SEE THE NAME BE WORTH NOTHING. I JUST CANT SEE CARROLL SHELBY JUST SELLING OUT HIS NAME LIKE THAT. SHELBYS WERE ALWAYS THE PRESTIGE OF THE MUSTANGS WITH PERFORMANCE AND LOOKS. SO FORD SHOULD STEP UP AND NOT MAKE A GT WITH A BIGGER MOTOR AND CALL IT A SHELBY. THIS CAR SHOULD BE SET APART FROM ALL THE OTHER 05 MUSTANGS IN LOOKS. IT DOES HAVE THE PERFORMANCE
I WILL GIVE THEM CREDIT FOR THAT.
