Im going to be honest it just seems like something that shouldnt of been done. The fact that its more loks than any performance bothers me. Now idk if its just me but did anybody notice that the word shelby is going around so fast but yet there is no cobra on it???

My SVT puts down more power and it cost less than $15,000 to do the modifications. Plus it's two doors and looks better to boot. This is a fail for sure. Im sorry but the ST is expensive as is and $15k more, I expect 350+ to the wheels and it to look different than it does here. The carbon just doesnt do it for me. for $45k, id rather get a Boss 302 Mustang!

It's such a poor knock off. It seems like there was no effort put into the design or execution. Fake CF... Really?

yup...completely agree with this! for 45k, id be looking at a 302. this is a total fail for me. no bump in hp for a shelby badged vehicle? wow....

oh...and those seats are hideous! dont like those at all.

Exactly what I was thinking. You want new and limited number car, get a boss 203 for that price and get twice the car. WTF Shelby

So full of fail it's embarrassing. Best (or worst part) part was the "starting at $14 995..."
So conceivably it could be optioned out even more than the $15K add on.
The Shelby name has gone seriously downhill-the only thing missing is a Shelby "signature" on the dash.
