After a brief stint in the ’60s as a special model from the

original Mustang series, the first of the modern Ford Mustang

Shelby GT500 generations was revived as a 2007 model as part of the

fifth-generation S-197 Mustang. It came with a supercharged 5.4L V8 and a six-speed stick shift.

It served as a successor to the early-2000s SVT Cobra. It was fiendishly quick, but nose-heavy due to

the iron-block engine, but this problem was fixed in 2010 with a far lighter aluminum engine.
