Why buy from us?
There aren't many more iconic American vehicles than the Mustang, and this Shelby GT500 variant is the most powerful and aggressive car to come out of the Ford production line! Boasting a staggering supercharged V8 engine capable of 500 bhp, this vehicle is guaranteed to provide an adrenaline rush like no other.
