My Neighbor's ZL1 Order...

turned into a 2012 Shelby GT500. WOW! What a sweet car. The car is equipped with the SVT Package, Navigation and Ricaro Seats. He tossed me the keys and said go ahead take it for a ride...which I declined due to time. The car is loaded. Employee pricing plus extra money from Ford. Out the door for about $7K less than I will be spending. He wanted a ZL1 but couldn't get employee price so went with the Shelby. I was amazed at how easy that car is to get in an out of (compared to Camaro).

I'm sticking with my ZL1 order but MAN that is a very nice car...

Nice cars, no doubt. My neighbour was looking to buy my Bimmer when a ride in the Boss convinced him otherwise. He went out and bought a Shelby. Nice ride and it pulls breaking traction in the first 3 gears easily, and no question the upgraded interior is better than mine. But I just didn't love it. It did have the tossability i look for. It seems when it comes to American Muscle we mostly gravitate to a specific car. I think you'll love your ZL1. And he'll be happy with the Shelby. I see a race in your future. The question is track or strip?

For sure! I'm taking Woodward Week off of work. That is a great time. And yes, I know I will love my ZL1. I'm waiting for it. Sold my SS a month ago.

I'm taking the week of as well. Had an amazing time last year. Plus Ford let us run the proving grounds and play with a bunch of their cars and take to the track with their pro drivers. Can't wait!

color is sterling gray. my non gay life partner is looking at a GT in that color. If he were taller I would make him get a boss as I just think the boss is the way to go. I have been trying to convice him to build a half story house and get a reality show with mini me and then he could afford the shelby. Sucks being short and then having to pay for a normal ceiling height house.

No doubt. Nice color combination, if I were a Blue Oval guy I would be hot for that..., the Easter Egg Ford colors on Mustang's I see the chick's all around town driving do not hold a candle to color scheme.

I think that grey GT500 is a Super Snake, which is not a factory Ford option package. It is an aftermarket package built by Shelby. I think the most powerful option has 800 HP.

To Blueclyde, your neighbor should've waited for the '13 GT500 if he could not wait for the ZL1. I can understand the financial reasoning though, especially considering the rebates on the '12 cars now.
