Yes I can see it. Absolutely and there's no denying the top end. The track the Ford generally has an edge. At about 150MPH it's just over a second quicker. In fact the GT isn't quicker, well 0.3 seconds than it's own sibling the Ford GT500!
And it's V8 sounds much better than either of these. So what do you do? Individual choice dictates that. I like the Shelby. :)
