    Shelby GT-H review by 911fan

    Well, just finished 6 days of "testing" a Shelby GT-H. Did 1500 miles throughout Colorado.

    Probably the most surprising part of it was the handling of the car. The Ford Racing Performance Parts suspension is very stiff and there is little to no roll through corners. It holds it line really well and is VERY neutral. Of course, you pay for that with a sometimes punishing highway ride, but it's worth it.

    The engine sounds like a NASCAR racer when you wind it up- really one of the sweetest v-8 sounds out there. It feels like you've been teleported back to 1968. You can hear air getting sucked through the CAI with a wheezing noise and the baritone sound gets louder and louder.

    The build quality of the car is first rate- it feels and looks very well put together. It also has some of the best windshield wipers I;ve ever used.

    It was a great week and I was sad to see her go. As the Hertz employye drove her away I felt a combination of jealousy/sadness because I knew it was the end the line. It was such a great trip, including a drive through the entire length of Rocky Mountain National Park and getting the requisite speeding ticket from a cop who no doubt wet his pants upon seeing me speed by.

    If you have the chance, I'd recommend renting one, its worth every cent.

    That must've been some seriously bad-ass windshield wipers

    Thanks for the review, how much did you pay for the six days?

    It costs about 100 per day plus the crazy airport taxes.
