History of the 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible: this brand new design features telltale Cobra emblem, the only bit of brightwork on its blacked-out grill…a 500-horsepower, supercharged V8…the Shelby GT500 is the most powerful road-going, factory-produced Mustang of all time back in 2007…the 2007 GT500 new design doesn’t rely on a massive 428-cubic-inch (7.0-liter) V8…it uses a small-block, 5.4-liter V8 that’s basically a detuned version of the engine from the famous GT supercar. On the GT500, supplier and cost concerns required the use of a wet-sump oil system, a cast-iron block and a “Roots-type” supercharger with 9 psi of boost, the GT’s four-valve aluminum heads transferred over unchanged to the Shelby GT500, as did many smaller items, such as the piston rings and bearings…the resulting is a massive 500 horsepower, 480 pound-feet of torque and a mid-4-second 0-60-mph estimate…Ford’s Special Vehicle Team (SVT) engineers reworked the Mustang’s MacPherson strut front suspension, fitting stiffer shocks, higher-rate springs and an upgraded stabilizer bar…the solid-axle rear suspension uses upgraded springs and a Panhard rod to control wheel movement…quick rack-and-pinion steering system as well as the liberal traction control system, Carroll Shelby insisted on large alloy special wheels just for the GT500’s to better manage the strong power and handling capabilities.
