The Ford Shelby GT500 is a sports car made by Ford in the Asphalt series.

Description

Introduced at the 2005 New York International Auto Show, the Ford Shelby GT500 is a muscle car and it uses a 5.4 L (330 CID) Modular 507 PS (500 bhp; 370 kW) supercharged V8 engine. Features include the Tremec TR-6060 6-speed manual transmission, suspension tuning, a different rear wing, a body kit, and 18-inch wheels. Deliveries of the Shelby GT500 began in May 2006. The Ford Shelby GT500 has ended production in 2014 and Ford's future SVT range are the Focus ST, Focus RS, Fiesta ST, Ford GT, F-150 SVT Raptor and the Shelby GT350 which the cars will arrive in 2015 and 2016 to replace Ford's current SVT vehicles. The Ford Focus ST and the Fiesta ST will remain the same but they will go through a facelift.

A collaboration of Ford's Special Vehicle Team (SVT) and Carroll Shelby, the GT500 was produced in limited quantity for three years (approximately 10,000 units per year) on the line at Ford's Flat Rock, Michigan (AutoAlliance) assembly facility.

Summary

The Ford Shelby GT500 is a mid Class B car with the following statistics:

Performance

The GT500 cannot properly compare with cars within its immediate vicinity. The Rinspeed zaZen, Honda Integra Type-R and Shelby Cobra 427, for example, all have much higher Tuning Kit bonuses, while having practically identical final ranks. These cars all also possess higher rates of acceleration, longer-lasting nitro boosts and superior handling, making them all much more formidable in Multiplayer than the GT500.

In fact, the GT500 is so under-performing that the Mercedes-Benz Biome, another Class B car with a final rank 12 points lower, can easily outrun the GT500 when both are at MAX + PRO. Overall, the main cause of the GT500's relatively low performance is its inclusion in the original version of the game; other cars were added afterwards, with the GT500 essentially acting like a minimum stats-requirement that the cars were (and are) obligated to pass in order to be moved to high-end Class B. Of course, all of these cars outperform the GT500 as a result of this, and so, the GT500 is now mostly obsolete stat-wise.

The GT500's stats, based on an individual analysis, can be said to be quite well-rounded, nonetheless. The GT500 has a relatively high raw top speed stat, albeit slightly lower than that of the Ferrari 458 Italia, while possessing a relatively low nitro stat. The GT500 can be said to have a decent nitro efficiency of 7/13/17, though this is far outshined by the incredibly high nitro efficiencies of 6/8/11 and 4/8/12 of the GT500's two closest neighbors. The GT500's drifting radius and handling could use some improvement, with both statistics being inferior when compared to the Ferrari 458 Italia; however, the GT500 is certainly comfortable to drive regardless, with no real huge downside in both respective aspects. The GT500's rate of acceleration/launch is not the highest, but can certainly be said to be good.

Usage

Performance-wise, the GT500 can clearly not compete in any way with most of its neighbors. Both its usability in terms of the final performance, something that would be relevant to Time-Limited Events, and its usability in terms of Multiplayer, are inferior to the surrounding cars.

However, the GT500 still remains one of the most popular Class B cars to date, and for a very good reason. The main reason is that its price is far lower than many of these formidable cars surrounding it. For a novice player, the GT500 can give them a taste of what some high-performing Class B cars can be like. The Rinspeed zaZen, which has now been removed from the game, costs upwards of A8Credits 600,000, as does the Audi R8 LMS Ultra. The Ferrari F40 costs upwards of A8Credits 500,000, while the Mercedes-Benz Biome and Honda Integra Type-R both cost upwards of

A8Credits 400,000 . Meanwhile, the Shelby Cobra 427 is practically impossible to obtain for novices, with game-time needing to be a minimum of roughly fifteen pure days (360 pure hours) or four-eight months in order for the car to be unlocked, as it is only found through Mastery Challenges as the reward for unlocking A8Licenses 1,050. Other surrounding cars can cost either Blueprints or A8Tokens(Tokens), making them relatively difficult to obtain as well.

Especially for a novice player, the GT500 can remain a top performing Class B car for a good price, that is very appealing. It is useful for Career Mode, as an entry car into Time-Limited Events for Class B, and as a part of several Collections. However, it does suffer from an inefficient Season 9: Beyond race set in Tokyo Reverse.

Price

The GT500 had an initial buying price of A8Credits 85,000 that has since been increased to A8Tokens 2,150. Upgrades cost A8Credits 265,900 while Pro Kits require A8Credits 173,287, 6 of each Class B Part, 4 Early & Initial Techs each, 8 Mid-Techs and 4 Forced-Induction V8s.
