2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Description

A collector's item from the moment they were announced, the 2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 has always been a desirable coupe. Of course it only gets better on a 6,891-mile example like this one. That's right! We could have put more miles on this car had we just driven it once a year from our showroom down to Orlando for some fun! But what that really means is this Shelby Mustang is your opportunity to own a cherished example of a nearly new muscle car, produced by automotive royalty.
One look at the original Ingot Silver metallic paint, and you'll know this was someone's baby. It came with the optional car cover, and we know it was used. The level of luster will make you think our showroom is the Ford dealer and today is 2012. Then again, at first you'll be too busy noticing the Shelby upgrades to see how the hard shine rolls evenly across the straight body panels. The blacked-out grille and hood vents make for a perfect dark side to this bright finish. And nothing goes better with these dark elements than the optional satin black tape stripe package. In fact, the shade of the graphite-like color they used on the alloys (staggered 19/20 inches front/rear) make a perfect midpoint between the silver and the black to create a very cool and coordinated total package. More than just look good, this one is instantly recognizable as a speedy machine. The handsome chin spoiler has never seen the top of a curb; the full-width rear spoiler looks like it wants to take flight; and those huge exhaust tips are pure intimidation even when this Mustang isn't growling. And of course, all those snake-bitten logos on the grille, fenders, and rear gas cap are the perfect announcement about how hard you bite back.
Inside, the black bucket seats might be cowhide leather, but they've got Shelby's trademark snake embossed in them. Averaging less than 1,400 miles annually means little seat time, and so there are no scuffs on the door sills, no scratches in the dash, and the carpets still look factory fresh. You can see from the window sticker that this one came loaded. It includes power windows, power locks, power seats, keyless entry, cruise control, and automatic climate control. The stereo is the AM/FM/XM/CD Shaker unit with a touchscreen interface. It pumps out huge power, and it's still modern enough to have Bluetooth, satellite navigation, and interface with your iPod. And speaking of modern conveniences, you also get the safety of dual front airbags, side airbags, and ABS.
The 5.4-liter modular is a terrific powerplant, and 2012 is the perfect year to pick one up. It inhaled deeper than the previous generation, and the block was made of lighter aluminum. So when the supercharger was added, it produced a whopping 550 horsepower. And on something this impressive, why mess with perfection? That's why everything looks fresh and stock on this original motor, right down to the SVT builder tag on the valve cover. And while this one has museum-quality low miles, we know you won't be able to resist teaching a few Corvettes a few lessons on the streets. After all, with the control of the six-speed manual transmission, and the grip of the upgraded sports suspension, this retro-style Mustang is a serious modern performance player. The total control package is capped off with big four-wheel disc brakes (Brembos in the front) and grippy Goodyear Eagle F1 tires.
Complete with the original window sticker, SVT certificate, bill of sale, and owner's manual, all of this paperwork is fun to review now, and it will be exceptionally useful as this GT500 keeps appreciating into a true classic. That's really the point of this car in total. It's a Shelby Mustang you enjoy on sunny days and know that there will still be admirers down the road. Call today!!!
