For Sale: 2008 Shelby GT500 in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

2008 Shelby GT500 - One Owner - 2,058 Miles - Alloy Clearcoat Metallic - 6 Speed Manual - 5.4L/500HP V8 (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 2008 Shelby GT500 on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 175 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, and a link to its one-owner, very-low-mileage, accident and damage-free Carfax history, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) Forty years on, the muscle car is alive and kicking. �€" Road & Track, April 2008 Road & Track writer, Jim Hall, explained: The supercharged 5.4-liter (330 cubic inches) 32-valve V-8 packs quite a punch - a whopping 500 horsepower at 6000 rpm and a tarmac-shredding 480 lb.-ft. of torque at 4500 rpm - and features fortified componentry to handle the load, including a forged steel crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons, an iron engine block and aluminum heads. All of this power is routed through the rear wheels via a very stout Tremec 6-speed manual transmission that shifts fluidly. But the clutch pedal operation, not surprisingly, is a touch on the heavy side. This (Shelby-) modified Mustang's test numbers are mighty impressive. It rockets from zero to 60 mph in a mere 4.5 seconds and hits the quarter-mile marker in nearly 13 seconds flat at 110 mph. Moving from the drag strip to the road course is equally impressive, thanks to a firm but not too stiff suspension that corners with little body roll, very good steering feel and large Brembo brakes that are more than up to the task of slowing down this eye-catching American sports-car icon in short order. Offered here is a 2008 Shelby GT in Alloy Clearcoat Metallic (dark gray) with white twin racing stripes over black. Showing just 2,058 original miles on its odometer, the Shelby's condition is pristine in all respects; it is virtually a brand-new, 13-year-old car. The Shelby was shipped from Ford's Flat Rock Assembly Plant for retail sale to its first, and only owner. Its original window sticker is included in the sale. (Please see the window-sticker photo in the accompanying gallery to review all options and standard equipment.) The exterior Alloy dark-gray metallic paint remains in showroom condition; the surface is smooth, unscarred, and the gloss is as-new. The white-striped hood (with raised twin air vents), roof, rear-deck, and white Shelby GT 500 side stripes (with Cobra graphic above) are similarly pristine. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) The front, black chin spoiler, rear-fender intakes, and rear-diffuser valance are free of scrapes or other damage. Limited chrome trim-notably on the Ford Performance- embossed dual-exhaust outlets-is in excellent condition. The cabin glass and all lighting lenses are clear and uncracked. All factory badging is properly in place including the Cobra grille emblem (offset to the driver's side), S-h-e-l-b-y trunk lid lettering, and Shelby GT 500/Ford brushed-metal gas cap. Stock 10-spoke, 18-inch, bright-machined, aluminum wheels (with SVT center caps) are mounted with GoodYear® Eagle F1 255/40 Z-rated performance tires. Brembo®-branded dark-gray brake calipers are visible through the wheels. Inside, the showroom-new condition continues with a purposeful, driver-focused design and an all-black theme accented with flashes of brushed-metal. Classic, horizontally pleated, leather-trimmed sport bucket seats harken back to the original Mustang design, as does the folding rear bench seat. Seating surfaces are in extremely well-maintained condition free of any damage or noticeable wear; embroidered Cobra logos are perfect. Door trim includes black hard plastic with a subtle, textured-panel insert and multiple speakers. A brushed-metal-t
