2010 Shelby GT-500 Mustang Preview

The big news is in the details the new dealer ordering guides reveal. To start with, the new 2010 Shelby GT-500 will offer standard 19” painted wheels on the coupes. Convertibles stick with 18” machined wheels of the same design. This is because the suspension tuning on the drop top is about 15% softer and the larger wheels bring out the worst in softly sprung cars with less chassis stiffness. The wheels have a new look that we think is pretty neat.

Some of the content changes include good things and not so good things depending on where you sit. Like the 2010 Mustang GT, the new GT-500 comes with auto-on headlamps and the capless fuel filler. For the first time, the electronic nanny stability control will be part of the Shelby Mustang. The system moderates yaw through the ABS system by modulating brake pressure to selected wheels. That is a fancy way of saying it helps keep you from losing it.

More concerning is a new “event data recorder” more commonly known as a black box. This is the big brother device you have heard about that records selected things like speed, g-forces and driver inputs. Depending on how long it records and how the data is used, it can do everything from allow the dealer to void your warranty for abusing your car or seal your fate in an accident investigation. In all fairness to Ford, this is the wave of the future and in part mandated by new federal laws.

The happier news is that new the Mustang colors carry over to the 2010 Shelby GT-500. Some interesting new color combinations will be available as stripe colors offered are White, Silver, Red and Grabber Blue. The Grabber Blue stripes can be had on white or black cars. If you get a Grabber Blue GT-500 you can have white or red stripes.

Stripes now come standard on convertibles as well as coupes. You can still option to have them deleted too. Exterior colors are Grabber Blue, Torch Red, Performance White, Kona Blue Metallic, Black, Brilliant Silver and Sterling Grey Metallic.

The interior will feature a unique steering wheel with thumb bumps and Alcantara inserts. Nice. Ambient lighting and MyColor dash lighting is standard. The charcoal leather seating has contrasting stitch work and will feature an accent stripe color keyed to the body.

The options of course include the new “Electronics Package” that has voice activated next generation navigation, dual zone climate control, satellite radio, and park & play DVD capability. The HID headlights are also slated as an option.
