Shelby GT500 ShifterWhen we got our new 2011 Ford Shelby GT500 project car (full story) we were sorely disappointed in the car's shifter feel.  It was by far the worst stock shifter we had ever used on a Mustang.  Each shift drained the enjoyment normally found when driving a new car.  Something had to be done quickly.

Unsure of whether or not it would fit our 2011 we went ahead and ordered Shelby's 6-Speed Shifter.  (Fortunately this unit will fit on a 2011, despite being labeled at the time of publication of this article with an application from 2007-2010.)

2011 Ford Shelby GT500To the untrained eye the 2011 Ford SVT Shelby GT-500 looks just like the 2010 Shelby GT-500.  To see the difference you need a few things: a dyno, a scale, a lift but most of all a stopwatch - if you only have the latter, that will be enough.  When you open the hood, the only visual difference is that the 2011 does away with the 2010's black supercharger and utilizes a natural finish.  The new aluminum block is only visible from underneath and you'll need a decent scale to find the 2011's weight loss.

What you'll really notice is the reduction in 0-60 times from 4.3 to 4.1 seconds and quarter mile times from 12.7 to 12.4 @ 117 MPH.  With a weight savings of over 100 pounds off the nose of the car, the balance is better, resulting in dramatically improving handling.  2010 GT500 coupe weight was 3,924# with 58% of that mass up front and 42% in the rear.  The 2011 GT500 improves upon this by tipping the scales at 3,820# with only 56% of that weight up front.
