Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A7 than the Ford Shelby GT350. The Ford Shelby GT350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A7.

Convenience
With the Audi A7 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Shelby GT350, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Audi A7 is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Shelby GT350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A7 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Shelby GT350.

Dimensions
The Audi A7 is a little narrower than the Ford Shelby GT350, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A7, which is slightly longer than the Ford Shelby GT350.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A7 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Shelby GT350.

Handling
The Audi A7 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford Shelby GT350, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A7 is significantly less powerful than the Ford Shelby GT350. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Audi A7 offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Shelby GT350, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A7 than that of the Ford Shelby GT350.
