GTE = GT emo edition; comes with additional lack of fire retardant and explodes on use... Who needs wire loom fixes anyway ;)?

Oh yes you can (I see the Christmas panto season has started early :D )

BS is now supplying a number of RHD S550s (I can only assume he buys from Ford dealers/demos). His Super Snake is RHD :)

£20k for about 30 horses? (2.3l).... Can probably do that for wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy less... Actually, I think a tune would bring it up 30 horses :lol:

granted it does look very purttyyy, the optional extra's (which probably add more onto it) would be more worth having. :rock

I'll 'av you know, young Mr Manders, this is Shelby's attempt to attract a wider audience with a low(er) entry price point. I believe they used the term "everyman" during the reveal.....in relation to the "E" in GTE :?

Well, this "everyman" still can't afford one :D

Think the 'E' stands for Extortion.

Telling me $50k for a Shelby? Or just save up a few grand more and pull a 350/350R? GT500 (s197) :roll: :roll:

Something doesn't add up to me lol. ALl well and good.. but one hell of an overpriced attempt surely! (would need to add up every piece to work out the pricing)
