2009 Gt500

I have a freind buying a 2009 GT500 just base options for $35k new. I was wondering if anyone has ran into any of these on the road or a drag strip. I am planning on getting an SS cause im not sure if ill ever get a z28. I just would like to have a good race w/ him on the strip.

( I do not condone street racing)

How is your friend getting for $35K when that's lower than even the invoice price?

That's a phenomenal deal! Your friend found a bargain.

As far as racing is concerned, the GT500 will win, but you can catch up with some help. I would encourage you to invest in long-tube headers and an exhaust before trying to race him.

I'd throw a good CAI on there as well.

It should be a good race.

Invoice is something like maybe $41000? I don't even see used GT500s going for $35,000.

Maybe the friend is getting torn a new one on the back end with the interest rate or something. Either that or the friend is getting a Shelby GT?

$39K is the best deal I was aware of anyone scoring for a new 08/09. $35K would be amazing.....

The 2008 GT500 I found here locally had 9800 miles on it. It was completely stock and it had a sticker of $37,900. It booked at 41k.

Yea my friends dad is a special friend of the ford dealer's owner. The dealer apparently has 4 requests for 2010 Gt500 which they are marking around 6-7k over sticker. But they can't recieve any 2010's until their last 09 is gone. I should have bought and resell on ebay.

Metro Ford had 2 Gt500 08 and a 09. They let the 08 go for 36k(friend bought it) and the 09 Vert is currently at 38k. Deals are there..as they say, Money talks Bull* walks. Well money and decent credit now days.

Wait, wait, older GT500's for under $40k? This is un-heard of. Someone was just trying to argue with me the other day on this forum that you couldn't get a gt500 for basically the price of a new Camaro 2ss. I guess you can't.

/sarcasm off.

The GT 500's are awesome casr -- agreed. However, let's not forget that these are already supercharged. You can supercharge the Camaro and be neck and neck.

Staying on topic means talking about these bolded points:

That means discussing any interaction with the said vehicle be it in the driver seat or along side of it, and discussing how one can get the Camaro SS to be able to run side by side or better. Therefore the point about putting a blower on the SS is valid considering the OP's first post.

I have an LPE 570 and I ran a 12.6 on stock tires tonight. With the DA it would be corrected to a 12.4 I believe. I even redlined in 3rd on that pass and didn't get into 4th or I think it would have been quicker. There was a GT500 and a 06 Z06 that had best times of 12.8 tonight. It was 82 degrees and humid. I had to work on my launches though because you just shred the stock tires with a bad launch.

We got our 2SS for 35K and my husband says that it will give the GT500 a run for its money. Of course we had to get the manual for more speed. My husband did the 1/4 in 13 flat in our Camaro which we have been told was pretty good since he has never raced at the track. He would have been in the 12's but he had a slow reaction time.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but reaction time has NOTHING to do with ETs. so he would have ran a 13 flat even if he had a perfect reaction time. Its a common misconception
