I don't want to dog on my domestic friends, but the shelby is not that great. It is a classic, and a collector's item, but it isn't that great of a car. I think the directors and writers put it in there for a couple of reasons. first, i don't think any insurance company is gonna want you running around jumping bridges, and such in like a xj220 or a db1. also, they prolly just took a mustang, painted it, and put some plastic parts on it to make it look like a 500.
Another thing that was kinda strange was them nos-ing the shelby. What the hell is up with that!!! you wanna destroy your classic?!? I think this movie was geared toward the people who don't know too much about cars. Because in the theater, I only heard people whispering in delight when the Diablo, and 550 came up, and when Nicholas Cage turned on his nos. Anyways, I liked the movie, but think that they could have done better.
