As far as American muscle cars go the reincarnated Challengers and Chargers are pretty slick, but I’m not a Mopar guy I’m a Ford man. The redesigned Mustangs have largely disappointed me, with the Shelby GT500 (which sells for about 46K) being a whole entire story altogether. The Shelby GT500 is one tasty automobile and I’d be happy to play the part of McQueen and take on the Charger any day.
I’ve long been a fan of Carroll Shelby’s Mustangs and the 2010 does not disappoint (although I don’t imagine Carroll is too involved in design at this point). While racing stripes could be the most overused thing in automotive styling, they work perfectly in the Gt500. The front cobra badge (which looks great set to the left to allow for better cooling of the engine) clean up the front grill and provide for a much meaner stance in the Shelby model. Not to mention the supercharged and intercooled 5.4-liter dual overhead cam V-8 engine that will do a good job of keeping your head pressed to the seat.
