Photo of the Day: President Obama intrigued by 2013 Shelby GT500


While at the Washington D.C. Auto Show President Barack Obama browsed the many vehicles on display sitting in several including the 2013 Shelby GT500.  After exiting the GT500 Obama was quoted as saying “This is what I needed in high school”.  He was also told the GT500 could go 200 MPH and he joked “Of course, nobody ever drives (that fast)”.

For President Obama the 2013 Shelby GT500 would have been a major upgrade as he drove his grandfather’s Ford Granada in high school which he has expressed much dislike for.  Check out a gallery of photos of President Obama from the D.C. Auto Show below.
