2010 Shelby GT500
If there's one thing that accelerates my acceptance of a new Mustang body style, it's the variant from the Special Vehicle Team, and the '10 GT500 continues that tradition. It seems to share more with its predecessor than the GT, and for me, that's a big plus. Sure the Shelby offers a number of new styling cues, but the round foglights, aggressive splitter, massive hood vents, and Gurney-flapped rear wing all take the base '10 styling in a positive direction.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that like the GT, the GT500 was benchmarked off my prior favorite variant, the '08-'09 KR, in both handling and power. Driving this one hasn't happened yet, but I'm eagerly anticipating it. If it's as good as PR'd, it should be a dandy, so stay tuned for our drive report. I hope it's sooner than later.
