For Sale: 2012 Ford Mustang in Ft Worth, Texas


Vehicle Description

With this 2012 Shelby GT500, Ford granted most Mustang enthusiasts' wishes: more power, less weight, and better performance. And this one, with a big honkin' supercharger under the hood, is lighter on its feet than its predecessors, and transformed what was merely a damned fast Mustang into a legitimate Corvette competitor. With only 6,641 actual miles on the clock and featuring some choice performance upgrades to the suspension, this great-handling, low-mileage Shelby is fast, clean, and downright mean.

This 2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 shows just 6,641 original miles, and is quite-frankly one of the nastiest late-model Mustangs we've ever featured. Dressed in sinister Black with Race Red stripes (which were actually still optional in 2012), and updated with a 2013 Shelby front grille, it's downright predatory and looks fast just sitting still. Note that the revised front fascia fits tighter, the air intakes are slightly larger to improve cooling on the track, and a relatively subtle rear spoiler. Of course, nobody will mistake this for a garden-variety Mustang, thanks to the intimidating Cobra badges throughout and the big SHELBY block letters on the rear end, as well as the distinctive grille opening and pavement-hugging chin spoiler with splitter. One of the 3 former owners of this car tinted the windows at some point in the past, which is a very nice perk for a car with a black leather interior, and it looks downright brutal with matching dark Shelby SVT wheels.

That black leather interior is almost like new, including the Cobra embroidery on the power seats and their retro-looking, racing stripe adorned pleated centers. Any Shelby Mustang is already loaded to the gills with standard equipment, but this one also includes the Ford SYNC voice-activation system, which is a lot of fun to play with, and Shaker entertainment system that absolutely HITS inside the cabin. The factory gauges are retro-style as well, perfectly matching the car's personality, and the leather-wrapped racing steering wheel feels great in the hands of any inspired driver. Pedals are perfectly placed for heel-and-toe shifting, and the cue ball topper on the six-speed shifter feels sturdy enough to handle a gorilla banging through the gears. And even better, it's all pretty much bulletproof, so despite the raging V8 up front, the A/C blows cold, you can set the cruise control and just loaf along on the highway, and just relax if you don't feel like hammering it. Plus, there are enough airbags inside that even if the unthinkable happens, you'll be well-protected in the hands of multiple Airbags. The back seat has likely never been used, and it mirrors the state of the entire interior - great condition. Even the trunk is decently-sized with easy loading and unmarked mouse fur upholstery inside.

That big grille on top of the hood isn't just for appearance. SVT engineers took their job seriously when they found that the old iron block GT500 didn't like extended hot laps on the track, so they cured the problem with an aluminum block in 2011. That aluminum block shaves more than a hundred pounds from the nose of the Shelby, which greatly improves handling and braking, especially at the limit. But more importantly, this particular GT500 features a healthy supercharger on top, which moves a lot more air without changing the car's personality. (Editor's note: A still-in-the-box 3.2LC Kenne Bell supercharger is available for sale to accompany this Shelby). The GT500 comes with improved cooling systems, a big intercooler, and other measures aimed at keeping it cool, and even though there's plenty of horsepower on tap (factory rated at 550HP), it still drives like a stocker when you're not hammering it. Giant Brembo brakes with ABS, stability and traction control are included, and they'll put up with all the punishment this engine can dish out. The SVT Package included a sporty suspension, but it had some limitations out-of-the-box, especially with the hammer down on the throttle. To counter those shortcomings and improve handling at both regular and high speeds, a long list of upgrades were installed, including several BMR support bars and mounts installed throughout to stiffen the body, and BMR upper control arms, Strange front adjustable struts, Ford Racing front springs, Viking rear shocks, and Revan Racing rear coil springs to assist with the handles. There's also a massive wheel and tire combination, with Dunlop 275/40/19 performance radials up front and giant Mickey Thompson 305/35/20 slicks out back, all wrapped around those killer Shelby SVT wheels.

Not many cars are as much fun as this one to drive, and even the commute to work feels special behind the wheel of this one. Call today!
