The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is hardly a subtle car in the first place, especially with the optional Carbon Fiber Track Pack. So if it’s already an in-your-face muscle car, why not push the boldness up another notch with an aftermarket exhaust system? Borla is one of the biggest names in the game, and they’ve just introduced their new Mustang Shelby GT500 exhaust. It sounds very mean, as you can hear below.
While the standard system in no way sounds bad, the Borla exhaust is on a different level. Even at idle, you get far more of that great V8 muscle car burble. Under acceleration, it’s far more aggressive and has a very different tone. It’s also a valved exhaust, so you can quiet it up when the situation calls. Finally, Borla claims it has zero drone in any gear, at any speed. While we haven’t been in the car, and Borla doesn’t provide a highway driving section in the video, they have a reputation for zero drone systems, so we’ll take their word for it.
This active valved cat back system has a three inch diameter, and ends in quad five inch tips. It’s made of entirely T-304 stainless steel. This durable material gives it a supposed “Million Mile Warranty.” It’s safe to say no Mustang Shelby GT500 will ever go that many miles, but it’s nice to know the exhaust will last a while.
Unfortunately, Borla doesn’t state any horsepower gains or weight savings provided by the system.
The Borla Mustang Shelby GT500 exhaust system is available with chrome, black chrome, or carbon fiber tips. Borla isn’t saying how much it is right now either, just that it’s going on sale soon. Still, a similar system is available for the Mustang Shelby GT350 at $2,110.99, so expect to pay somewhere in that ballpark.
