2015 Ford Shelby GT500 Release Date and Price



The 2015 Ford Shelby GT500 is ricing the market soon. This is one of the legendary models that is called the “Snake”, or my personal favorite, “The Elenore”, the unicorn that is uncatchable, and it is one of the kind for every man on the world. The newest version is coming to the market, so can wait to see him.

Concept

The 2015 Ford Shelby GT500 is finally here! We can not remember what car was impatiently waited as this one. There were rumors it would change name in SVT Cobra due to return of Shelby 350 but the proper name would be “The Beast”. If you pay attention to numbers (both power and the price) you will realize why we decided to give it such name. There are seldom vehicles produced by Ford which can compete with the new Shelby GT500. Currently, there are almost no announced cars to come with such performances. Whether are we exaggerating or not it is up to you to decide after reading this article.

Interior and Exterior

There are numerous similarities in design with the previous model but 2015 Ford Shelby GT500 has some unique characteristics. First of all, HID headlights are upgraded together with LED taillights. Wheel design is totally different than before and quad exhaust pipes are also something we haven’t seen before. The biggest con of the design would be abundance of hard plastics which was the object of criticism with the previous model. Regardless of that interior is just fine with a sporty dashboard and racing stripe seat trim. Instead of regular shifter there is a cue ball and there are Cobra badges all over the inner part.

Engine
