at the price of fuel who will be able to drive that for long?

Good for Ford - the Shelby GT500 will undoubtedly be very expensive to operate but just think of the pride of ownership

That's really great timing, considering that gas prices are over $4 a gallon and will continue to go up over time. Detroit needs to stop rolling out ever bigger muscle cars if it's going to complete globally. That's what tanked them all in 2008.
