Shelby GT w/ Spoilers


Recommended Posts

Any of you 2007 to 2008 Shelby GT owners that decided to put a rear wing on can you post some pics of your car?

 

I like that the GT's came without one to set it apart but at times it just doesn't look right so serious thinking about adding one

I added the GT500 rear spoiler very shortly after I purchased my 2008 SGT...I live out in West Texas where the wind blows hard most of the time, and without the spoiler at around 100-120 MPH, I could feel the rear end of the car moving around a lot...since adding the spoiler, the rear of the car is definately planted solidly to the ground now. Pic is in my signature.

I put the stock GT spolier on mine at around 100 miles (1st week of ownership)... Liked them on the GT-H cars, so I purchased one of the $100 new take-offs that were available on-line... Since then, I have added the matching silver stripes (THANKS to John Farmer = MrFarmDog)... Also helps to cover up the SAT Radio "bug" on the trunk lid...

 

Lots of chioces out there, just have to find the one that "works" for you :happy feet:

I bought a GT spoiler right after I got my car, I never put it on because I think that's one of the things that sets our cars apart from the others.

 

 

 

 

Not that I don't like spoilers on Shelby GT's, I do, just not on this one.

I wish my GT/CSs had no wings. Luck of the draw, each had one when I got it. The 2006 V6 I first owned had a slick deck. I really liked the look, but it did seem as if something was missing. I eventually got two of the rubber-like eBaY "lip spoilers" and configured them into one that went from edge to edge of the rear. I really liked that, and would have added them to the newer cars if they didn't have the holes already punched.

My compromise on the GT/CSs was the KR/2007 Pony Package wing. I eventually got them for about a hundred dollars each, and in black, to minimize their visual impact.

The original GT pedestal-style wings, one black, and one white, are in the rafters of the garage. There is a second black one there as well: I bought it "take-off" to put on the slick V6, but never had the heart to poke holes in that lovely, smooth deck. I don't think I'd do it to a Shelby GT. The little lip spoiler might be OK; they can be worked like wood for the end-shape, and painted as well.

 

 

And then there are the "AirTab" vortex generators:

Where did you get the stripes for the spoiler?

I added an OE GT500 spoiler about 2 months after purchasing mine.

I think I am liking the KR one. I assume the stripes on the Wing are painted on? Any issue with painted stripes not matching the tape stripes?

It took me a while to actually get up the nerve to do it but I'm glad I did. It's Cervini's, I knew it was the one I wanted the 1st time I saw it. Nothing but compliments on it all the time.

 

 

Nice - your rear deck cover with Carroll Shelby's signature!
