The 2014 Shelby Mustang GT500 has a huge 662hp supercharged V8 that delivers a supercar-like 200 mph level performance. We'll take Ford's word on that top speed because this example's nearly impossibly low mileage means we doubt it has ever turned its tires in full fury. Instead, this is the well-documented and loaded drop-top that has been so nicely preserved by its previous two owners that it will make your garage feel like a showroom the moment it gets parked.
One of the big reasons this is such a great icon (besides the motor) is that the color combo is arguably the best around. The Oxford White with blue racing stripes instantly reminds us of the color theme of the first Shelby Mustangs, and so this one is instantly connected with nearly a half-century of history. And since the sub-3500 mile odometer reminds us this one is barely broken-in, you still have a showroom-level shine. There's even quite a cool-looking and well-coordinated dark side to this car. The wide grilles, even wider front lip, heat extractor hood, blackout rear panel, and rear diffuser make this look mean no matter if you're coming or going. And those dark SVT wheels that also feature an aggressive 19/20-inch front/rear stagger add to this attitude. So we love to see the back convertible top that seems to unite all this dark aggression while keeping a crisp and clean style.
As terrific as this looks with the top in place, it gets even better when you power it down. The black leather interior continues the dark side fun started on the exterior, and the blue racing stripes tie the full package together for a thoughtful presentation inside and out. There are no scuffs on the door sills, no scratches in the dash, and the carpets still look factory fresh - it is truly going for a time capsule feeling. GT500s were the top-dog pony cars, and so they made sure these were luxurious, too. This means a power driver's seat, power windows, power locks, leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry/alarm, dual front airbags, side airbags, anti-lock brakes, and cruise control. An expensive but worthwhile option was the touchscreen infotainment that controls the Bluetooth, satellite navigation, and premium Shaker AM/FM/CD/XM stereo. And while the mileage is exceptionally low, you'll love to take this out for a drop-top drive. After all, you have dual-zone climate controls and heated sets to dial in the individual ideal temperature
The beast that lives under the hood is the 32-valve 5.8-liter DOHC supercharged V8. Rated at 662 horsepower and 631 pounds of torque, this is a true supercar. The special engine was even updated in 2014 for better all-around performance - another one of those details that collectors love. While this makes it an even better track machine, you can really tell from the exceptional condition that this GT500 has never turned a wheel in anger. But if you ever do, the full SVT suspension upgrades (you can still see the factory stickers all over the components!) are there to give you the best high-speed performance. Plus, the six-speed manual transmission puts you in the center of the action, and there's a giant four-wheel disc brake package with Brembo fronts to give you plenty of stopping power.
The sale comes complete with some nice paperwork, like the original window sticker and the owner's manual packet. This is such a stock and preserved collector car that it's even believed to be on its original tires. This is the kind of powerful machine that will cause a stir at classic car auctions in 20 years. So this near showroom-fresh future classic is the supercar you enjoy today and appreciate even more tomorrow. If you're ready for a true Mustang of distinction, call today!
