Upgrade??

Recommended Posts

I received my GT500 in June, red with silver stripes. It has been to the road track a few times and it seems the Shelby GT can run circles around the corners compared to my 500. If I have the 40th anniversery package installed, will my car handle the course as well as the Shelby GT? Do the brakes need upgraded as well? I have looked and have not been able to see what all is included in the package. My car all ready has the silver stripes, but what else is included? Any information would be appreciated.

 

Thanks, Dr. Jon.

Thank you for the response. How much for the 600 HP option and could I get an expectation of the cars hanlding after the upgrades? Will it handle as well as a Shelby GT on the road course?

 

Thanks again,

Jon

600 HP is $27,995 plus tax

725 HP is $31,995 plus tax

 

i dont know if a GT500 will ever handle as well as a SGT. the GT500 has alot more weight to carry around, but maybe John can answer the handling questions better.

Just a quick correction/clarification. I just booked my 07 500 for the anniversary package yesterday, and was informed as previously mentioned that the 600HP would be a $7500.00 option and 700HP would cost $10,000.00 on the anniversary package only. SAI informed me yesterday that they are only allowing specific option packages to be coupled with the 40th package. You can not customize the options and have SAI make the installations ie; cold air intake by itself, they will sell you the kit, but they wont install it for you. Hope this helps.
