While still keeping the revvs in a moderate level - since this was a brand new car given to me for a test drive - the Shelby GT500 Convertible offers a variety of satisfaction in persona. Cruising in style or taking the punch in your back in first, second, third was an exciting and high-ranking experience for myself. Considerating the weight and 500HP steep engine curve line it outperformed even the Ford GT experience in my memory, although that is another league.
The Aying brewery south of Munich is only one of the hundreds in Bavaria. Take your time while travelling to Germany and get too meet Mustang maniacs down there. The Autobahn isn't anymore what it used to be with todays truck jamming up the right lanes, but it still offers short distances for high-speed travelling in style - Cobra Jet style. But I found out that multiple on- or off-ramp acceleration and deceleration offers even more fun.
I would like to express my deepest "Thanks a lot" for this experience to well-known Mustang and Corvette maniac Karl Geiger from Geiger Performance. Karl is 30 years in the business in Germany and has survived them all that popped up and disappeared in the import business. Known as well for building once and then a speciality car like a 700HP Ford GT, multiple outstanding showstopper Corvettes and Hummers plus F-series, he is just putting his hands on his own 700HP plus version of a hot Muscle-Mustang to show up at oncoming events. Karl sold 300 Mustangs so far.
Stay tuned for more Geiger Performance.
