As you can see, a GT500 SB would look pretty phenomenal; aggressive, distinctive and practical. And because this is the Shelby version, its 5.8-litre, 662hp V8 would likely allow the shooting brake to retain similar, if not exacting performance figures with its coupe counterpart: 0-60mph: 3.5sec, 202mph top speed and 11.8sec standing quarter-mile at 125mph. Nice. Question is, what do you guys think of the GT500 Shooting Brake idea?
