Buying My Shelby GT500 in the USA?

It's definitely time to talk about buying a Shelby GT500! The Triple F Collection's monster is ready for a drive to discuss whether one will be joining the Shmeemobiles in 2021. I couldn't lock my order before, but now I'm considering whether it's good to go, let's see...
With a number of the Triple F hypercars heading out for a shoot; let's see the Bugatti Chiron, Koenigsegg Regera and Pagani Huayra BC getting on the move before heading into the garage to the GT500. In late 2019, when I had attended the Ford Performance event in Las Vegas for the Shelby GT500 with my Ford GT, I announced at the time that I was ordering one to join my own garage. However, things since have not gone as planned...
At the time I would have had to lock in the order, it was just when the world was shutting down and my plans to take delivery of it in the USA, use it for a tour, and import it back to the UK were completely stopped and as such I could not confirm the car. That never stopped my desire to eventually bring one back home to live with my Ford GT and Heritage RS for the ultimate modern Ford trio with the supercar, hot hatch and muscle car. Coming full circle then, now could be the time to do so, but first comes a test drive to see if it's as much fun as I remembered!
If I do decide to go ahead, there is then a choice between buying a car from the market, or ordering a MY2021 example with my own spec and some new colour options. There's definitely a decision to be made ahead!

To GT500 or not to GT500, that is the question! After last year's plans went out the window, would you like to see the first Shmeemobile in the USA as this monster of an American muscle car?

Don't do it, I made the biggest mistake trading my GT350 in for a GT500. It isn't all it's cracked up to be. All the things that were great about the GT350 is lost on the GT500 My suggestion is to buy a Heritage 2020 GT350 or a GT350R

I've seen a couple of people speak this way, but generally it's been to do with the cost of running. I'd love to hear some more thoughts if you're up for sending a DM on Instagram? Thanks

I knew this was a Columbus Ohio because I've seen that Chiron in person in Dublin. The guy from smoking tire, put together that place where you can store exotic cars in LA. a good business will be something like that to exist in Columbus because Columbus unbeknownst to many has an amazing car culture.

supercars in general are a dime a dozen, Their automakers flooded the market. But a Shelby GT350 and GT500 are rare outings. Ford doesnt continuously make them. they are made for several years, then theirs a long pause in between, More over what makes this generation of Shelby's heck Mustangs worthy of purchase is the fact these are the last generations of #1 The manual Transmission. The GT350's are manuals with all the prowess of their Track bred nature. Their sound the special flat plane crank Ford american V8 beyond rare. super special 8k rpm!!!! its the first and last of its breed. and it will command $$$$$$$$$ in the future. The GT500, the first Dual clutch mustang, most powerfull Ford in 2021 sound incredible performance incredible looks incredible. these are not everyday cars, these are BOO KOO legends. And in a world of EV's they will represent the best of their era. in other words they are collector cars.

As Mustang owner myself.. I still think I prefer the Shelby GT350R with a manual.. probably in blue or Wimbledon white with contrasting stripes. The GT500 is super powerful and aggressive but it’s not the best ‘drivers car’ of the range and therefore might be less enjoyable. Still an amazing motor though!

At 12:02, when you gave it power it did that because you are in track mode. It’s a strange thing to have done, but Ford made it to where traction control turns off in track mode driving and there is no way to turn it on while in track mode

Your cruise up the “ Olentangy River road made me very home sick. Of course I highly recommend revisiting it in the fall the foliage is second to none then. Before you settle on a pony car you should run across Dublin to my buddy Brandon Byers and compare the C8 it would go right along side your GT40 and it to has an exhaust gate so you can annoy everyone around you. Make sure you stop in Greaters and have the best ice cream in the world before you leave Columbus!

I honestly think you need to add a GT500 to the collection. Its limited availability in the UK will make it worth even more. You'll also have to order a Shelby Raptor to add and bring back for the collection as well. Lol

Brother Shmee, I am most excited for the STO content. I care not for the M3. I do think you would do the UK a service by importing a Shelby GT500. However, with the Shmuseum on the horizon, I would forgo the track pack (initial cost plus future tires and brakes) to save some coin. I recommend the Ford Performance Blue, sans stripes!

If Shmee150 does purchase one, this might be the only GT500 in the UK or one of a very few so seeing one on the road there will be very rare and absolutely nothing sounds like it.

You answered your own question with the statement where the heritage rs the Gt500 and the GT next to each other. You could make a designated corner for the fords! Get some memorabilia and a big blue oval to hang over them. 👌

Great car should definately add it to the collection as its a shelby one and you can sort the interior to your taste. As you drive all over the world I was wondering how you find driving in the US to the UK plus on another note due to climate restrictions etc they are not going to make them forever. I mean you love your focus s and I would say it's a car that's more special and with more heritage than those. Go for it, finances permitting! You are continuing to make great content and in lockdown UK that has been a godsend thank you .

Its not even about "bEiNg sTrEeT" its about authenticity. If you talkin bout walkin round extra militant 24/7 then ya life should reflect that. If you living lavish n carefree then show that.
