It makes me sad considering I almost met him in 2009 at SEMA, I opted to meet Mario Andretti instead.
David Parenti Nov 25, 2012
Some incredible last words.
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
Haha thanks Chris. Too many people get caught up with loving a handful of cars. I'd rather take Leno's approach and appreciate cars in a renaissance form, a good bit of knowledge and appreciation for practically all cars/et al.
Chris Benson Nov 26, 2012
Dammit Alex your logic does not belong on this site/app, just kidding, and well said.
Alex Arvanitis Nov 26, 2012
A civic with $15,000 put into it can easily run 9's if its done right Colby. Your vette might do so as well, as might this kr. None of that matters, appreciate a car for what it is, why fall privy to the social decay of singular infatuation?
Alex Arvanitis Nov 26, 2012
Colby, do you really wanna be that guy bro? Come on man. You have a nice corvette, don't make it annoying by being a turd about it. I personally like c5's and plan to build one, but honestly, my built tt 03 cobra would obliterate your car bro. Chill
Car Buzzer Nov 26, 2012
Oops sorry I thought this was the 2013 ford mondeo. They just look really similar
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
Hell even my Lightning would beat a stock C5.
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
Alright I love Corvettes, but no a stock 02 Corvette would get crapped on by this. Go get a Z06 or ZR1 and then yeah it would win
Tim Preisinger Nov 25, 2012
The Chevy VS Ford battles will never end. I love it. I wish everyone on car buzz could have a group track rental some day. I would be the first in line for that.
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Nov 25, 2012
What do you mean 4 cylinders?
Car Buzzer Nov 25, 2012
Looks okay, shame about only 4 cylinders though
Luis Daniel Angilello Nov 25, 2012
Oh yeah?? Well my Prius will.... er.... Nevermind!
Michael Davidson Nov 25, 2012
Oh yeah?!?! Well my 98 Toyota Camry would stomp anything y'all got!!
Matthew Crighton Nov 25, 2012
Your*
Matthew Crighton Nov 25, 2012
Haha. @Colby you mid-life crisis car couldn't touch a desent gt500 super snake. Stop bragging.
Shelby Cassandra Nov 25, 2012
@Colby. My mustang would destroy your corvette in every category.
Devin Babyn Nov 25, 2012
He said that because its a GT500KR ya fan boy dip shit
Colby Church Nov 25, 2012
Lol, not even close Nick. My 2002 Corvette would eat this car. I beat a 2011 Shelby GT500 a few months back. It's still a mustang. No competition for real sports cars.
Description: Just what those products will entail remains to be seen, but it's pretty safe to say that they'll be based on the Mustang in some form or another. Word has it that Shelby American may be pre...

Twin turbo 5.0 coyote cobra jet in street trim would be epic !
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Nov 25, 2012
Awesome!
Patrick Schalk Nov 25, 2012
I loved this gen of GT500
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
That said I wouldn't hack up a brand new one unless I was very wealthy, but its not like you can take a stock block z06 to 800whp and have it last for only $3,000 in mods. The beauty of these cars is in their 4 seat, big power, good handling combo.
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
$60k is steep but consider the potential and the immediate performance. Like all blower cobras, intake, pulley, chip, exhaust, tires, brake pads, dynotune, and maybe even a blower swap will get this comfortably in the 9's with docile drivability.
Mohammed Adil Nov 27, 2012
LOOKS BEAST!!!
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
It's a good deal for what you get yeah. But most people can't afford a $60K car
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Nov 25, 2012
What a beast!
Michael Davidson Nov 25, 2012
They are actually pretty cheap for what you get. There are a lot more expensive cars that I see everyday.
Jason Bartlett Nov 25, 2012
They seem to be very popular here in northern on Canada . Dealership here in Barrie always seems to have at least two or more on the lot
Jommel Marcella Nov 25, 2012
Like a boss.
Zeus Mocha Nov 25, 2012
NA see one at least once a every other week. Along with pretty much every other American high end car.
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
Aren't common cuz they are rather expensive
Petre Draghici Nov 25, 2012
Just sooo cool
Jacob Viiper McCord Nov 25, 2012
Seen one of these in gun metal grey where I live. So damn sexy both looks and sound.
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
I love the originals as cruisers but if you've ever driven one in angst, loads better isn't what I would say. Heat worn tires, scorched brakes, dead clutch and axle hop plague the originals until extensive mods are caries out but they cruise awesome
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
Mind you, an m3 is 2.5 times the price, has roughly 100lb/ft less torque, and needs to rev to 8500 to reel in all its potential. The 5.0 gt can shed its weight easily at 2500rpms... I've been in both and honestly, e92's feel porky.
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
Sam I wouldn't go that far, for $23k, a loaded v6 mustang pulls the same handling numbers as an m3. For $31,000 a 5.0 with brembo's is as fast as an m3 around road course's, motortrend and others proved this. Fat? It's lighter than an m3...
Sam Oglesby Nov 26, 2012
The mustang for the modern world a fat useless heap of rubbish. Old one is loads better
Alex Arvanitis Nov 26, 2012
Colby, no one wants to hear it. Bored.
Chris McCormick Nov 25, 2012
Old one(:
Colby Church Nov 25, 2012
I'll take neither. Lol
Jommel Marcella Nov 25, 2012
I'll take both.
Dylan Bruder Nov 25, 2012
Yes they are
Donte Perino Nov 25, 2012
Are those the Hertz ones?
Dustin Whisner Nov 25, 2012
I would definitely take the old one.
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
I'd run this bone stock but have jetted the carb, and opened the dump pipes, such a great car.
Patrick Schalk Nov 25, 2012
Good ol GT350. Looks awesome.
Devin Babyn Nov 25, 2012
God those are nice
Dillon Dixon Nov 25, 2012
MY DREAM CAR!
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
Icon
Cam Heaney Nov 25, 2012
My favorite color scheme.
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
Agreed. Bucket list car
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Nov 25, 2012
One of my favorites of all time!
Dillon Dixon Nov 25, 2012
So much want. Such a beautiful car.
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
Rated power: 335 Delivered power: 375+ The look on people's faces when these ran 13's with slicks back in the 60's, priceless. 12's with fuel adjustments, slicks, cam and headers. Impressive for the 60's
Freddie Ibarra Nov 26, 2012
Legend!
Stephen Ishard Nov 25, 2012
Optimism
John Diller Nov 25, 2012
Respect
Sam Oglesby Nov 26, 2012
They should build it its an awsome car
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Nov 25, 2012
I really liked that concept! Shame it never made it.
Devin Babyn Nov 25, 2012
The engine they came up with was so epic. If they built it now its would be so crazy
A.J. Brady Nov 25, 2012
I wish they had made it too. I thought that it was a great modern take on the cobra.
Jordan Jackson Nov 25, 2012
I thought it looked awesome, and I wish it would have seen production... Imagine what it would have been like now! Lol
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
I wish they produced this! I loved the concept
Stephen Cobbs Nov 25, 2012
Relax. It was a modern day Cobra. I thought it looked great.
Timothy Hooker Nov 25, 2012
this concept was an abomination
Alex Arvanitis Nov 27, 2012
I like factory 5's Daytona shell, there's just something about that sheet metal, 60's look that does the Daytona right. I love posh and polished as much as the next person but on a raw road racer, rough and tumble does the trick for me
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Nov 25, 2012
*Patrick, it's not supposed to look like a GT! It's a Shelby Daytona concept. Personally, I love it!
Patrick Schalk Nov 25, 2012
Ehhhhh this car is gross. The front is ok but the back doesn't look enough like the GT
Drake Nailon Nov 25, 2012
It was a Ford concept based on the Ford GT architecture but front instead of mid engined. Don't ask me I didn't get it when I heard it either. Always thought it was beautiful myself. Was supposed to be a modern take on the Shelby Daytona Coupe.
Jordan Jackson Nov 25, 2012
Shelby Daytona concept? That would be cool
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
I remember seeing this concept at the Detroit Auto Show.
William Downs Nov 25, 2012
Nawwaf don't u think we would have heard of this by now if it was a new Ford gt, especially since Mr. Shelby him self is there standing next to it
William Downs Nov 25, 2012
Wow what is that beautiful machine?
Dustin Whisner Nov 25, 2012
Is this a concept?
