Thanks Mike B, I knew that there had to be a simple explanation. I feel better now.

They're not the same, the blue one is the 2010 model year with 540hp and the red is the lighter 550hp 2011 model, the reason they have the same year is because the 2011MY has the correct introduction year while the 2010MY does not.

@FastestLaps, Wads, or Georg am I correct? If these are duplicate car pages under different names we should merge them without losing any lap times. The Ford Shelby GT500 has lap times for: Hockenheim, Streets of Willow, Spring Mountain, and VIR; and the Shelby GT500 has lap times for: Laguna Seca, Grattan, Bedford Autodrome West, Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours, and VIR. I am surprised no one noticed this before, me included.

I think that these are the same car, right? Shouldn't they be merged? The correct name of course is the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
