When shopping for a new car, your first step will be to decide on the general type of vehicle you are looking at. After this, you will need to begin comparing manufactures to decide which vehicle will offer the best value to you. Regardless of the type of car you want, there will be comparable models available from other manufacturers. Too often, a car shopper will look at price as the greatest factor in their purchase, and obviously, this is going to be important, but the cost of ownership over several years can make one car cheaper than another. The following are four of the most important elements of the cost of ownership.

Beyond their superior power and handling over the Mustangs on which they were based, Shelby’s GT coupes and convertibles always had a decided advantage in the looks department, especially the 1967 version. Its aggressive front end treatment extended the hood and nose for an extremely aggressive appearance that was furthered by body side scoops and an upswept tail spoiler.
The 1967 Shelby GT500 on offer here embodies that entire attitude in all its freshly restored glory. Its highly desirable Dark Moss Green paint with White striping and Black Décor interior make for a show-stopping combination.
For Hertz car renters with a penchant for performance back in 1966, the availability of a Shelby Mustang for hire had to have been thrilling. This was not a simple dress-up package, but an actual Shelby American–constructed fastback ponycar that was ready for action, complete with a hot Shelby-tuned 289 CI V-8 engine. A handful ended up in weekend racing competition, but it is unlikely that any are set-up to endurance competition specs like SFM6S828 has been.

Callaway Cars today announced power numbers and performance for the flagship model in their performance car lineup. Equipped with Callaway’s GenThree Supercharger, the Corvette Z06 now produces 757 bhp @ 6,200 rpm and 777 lb-ft @ 4,500 rpm (SAE). A launch to 60 mph is now achieved in 2.8 seconds, and a quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds at 131 mph.
“Why Go Big, When You Can Go Bigger?” – Size Matters. To reach that power (which is up from 650 bhp / 650 lb-ft) the supercharger itself needed to be bigger since the output of a positive displacement supercharger is proportionate to its size. The Callaway GenThree supercharger is 32% larger in displacement (2300cc vs 1740cc).
