Ford Shelby GT500
Price: $53,645
Mileage: 15 City / 23 Hwy

Really, the ordinary Mustang GT, with its 412-horsepower 5.0-liter V8, should be plenty of car for just about anyone. But there are always those who want more... and more.

So Ford offers the 550-horsepower Shelby GT500 for those folks. This car makes smoking the back tires easier than sparking up an electric grill. A process of continuous improvement over the last several years has turned the GT500 into a car that's good for more than just straight-line take-offs, too. This is a Shelby that's prepared for the curves as well.
