|The Shelby GT is the third
modern Shelby Mustang produced through a collaboration of Ford and
Shelby Automobiles. In addition to the 2007 Shelby GT500, Ford and
Shelby created 500 copies of the Ford Shelby GT-H, which are available
only through select Hertz rental centers.
“We have been overwhelmed at the number
of people who want to buy a version of the Shelby GT-H,” said
Carroll Shelby, CEO of Shelby Automobiles, Inc. “The Shelby
GT will deliver the power and balanced handling of the Shelby GT-H,
but with more performance potential, especially due to the available
Modern Shelby Mustangs have proven to be extremely
desirable among Mustang and Shelby enthusiasts. For example, in
January an early production Shelby GT500 sold at the Barrett-Jackson
auction for $600,000, with proceeds benefiting the Carroll Shelby
Children’s Foundation. On July 28, a Shelby GT-H was sold
for $250,000 at the EAA AirVenture, with proceeds benefiting the
Youth Eagles aviation education program.

“The Shelby GT builds on the expertise
of Ford Racing, the experience of Carroll Shelby and the Shelby
team to deliver an incredible driving experience that is unmistakably
Shelby,” says Jamie Allison, manager, Ford Racing Performance
Group. “And, like every Shelby Mustang should be, the Shelby
GT is ready to be both a weekday driver and a weekend warrior for
The Shelby GT driving dynamics are fine tuned
with the Ford Racing Handling Pack, which was developed by the same
engineers that developed the Ford Racing FR500C, which won the 2005
Grand-Am Cup Championship. New coil springs drop the overall ride
height by an inch-and-a-half for a more aggressive stance and reduced
body roll. Stiffer dampers and front swaybar further enhance cornering
feel and body control. To showcase the key performance modifications,
Ford Racing painted all the key suspension components, including
the damper, spring, and swaybar Ford Racing Blue.
A front strut-tower brace adds additional strength
to the chassis structure, and P235/55ZR18 high-performance tires
maximize the benefits of the chassis upgrades.
Under hood, the Ford Racing Power Pack increases
the output of the naturally aspirated, three-valve, 4.6-liter V-8
to 325-horsepower, and 330 pound-feet of torque. The Power Pack
includes a 90 millimeter cold-air intake and a new performance engine
calibration for improved response. The high-flow exhaust system
with X-pipe crossover offers better power delivery and a throaty
V-8 exhaust note. A shorter rear-axle ratio is installed to capitalize
on the Shelby GT coupe’s extra power, especially accelerating
off the line. For Shelby GT models equipped with a manual transmission,
a Hurst short-throw shifter is installed for more precise shift
“The Shelby GT is great fun on the track,”
continues Shelby. “It’s got the heart and soul of the
Mustang GT pumped up with a strong motor, nimble chassis and great
sound. It’s one of those rare cars that’s easy to drive
The Shelby GT will be offered only as a coupe,
and only in two exterior colors, Performance White or Black. Both
colors are accented by silver LeMans-style racing stripes –
a signature detail of classic Shelby Mustangs. The LeMans stripes
extend over the hood, roof, and trunk, and are complemented by matching
side stripes with “Shelby GT” nomenclature.
The powerful face of the Shelby GT features
a unique front fascia, with a more aggressive lower air dam. The
brushed-aluminum grille is accented by an offset Mustang logo. In
addition, the Shelby GT has a new hood scoop that comes directly
from the famed Shelby Cobra roadster.
The side profile features chrome-finished 18-inch
wheels and unique side scoops just before the rear wheel arches.
The rear fascia frames the larger dual exhaust tips, and is topped
by Shelby badging on the trunk lid.
Inside, features include ‘Shelby GT’
logo floor mats and custom sill plates with Shelby GT nomenclature.
In addition, the Shelby GT features an authentication plate on the
center dashboard, as well as matching tag underhood. This tag features
the CSX number, which is recorded in the Shelby Automobiles registry.
Shelby GT models will begin as a stock Mustang
GT assembled at AutoAlliance International assembly plant in Flat
Rock, Mich. The cars are then shipped to the Shelby Automobiles
facility in Las Vegas for modification before delivery to Ford dealerships.
“The Shelby team in Las Vegas is excited
about building the Shelby GT,” said Amy Boylan, President
of Shelby Automobiles, Inc. “With our friends at Ford, we
are creating the next chapter in the Shelby legacy.”
|Offering a steed
for every need
“It’s an exciting time to be a muscle
car fan, as legendary names from the 1960’s are being reincarnated
in the marketplace,” says Felice. “As the Shelby GT
shows, Ford will continue to dominate the new muscle car wars just
as we have done for over forty years. No other nameplate will be
able to match the depth and breadth of options the Mustang offers.”
In support of Ford’s “steed for
every need” strategy, Ford now offers four horsepower options
for Mustang, with pricing from $19,995 for a 240-hp V-6 Mustang
coupe to $46,500 for a 500-hp Shelby GT500 convertible.
Ford has also introduced several special packages
on Mustang further increasing its unique offerings, including the
Pony Package and the California Special. And there are plans for
more in the future.
In addition, Ford Racing offers a complete catalog
of performance parts for Mustang fans, from custom wheels and exhausts
to the complete, turn-key Ford Racing Mustang FR500C race car.
As a result, Ford offers Mustang enthusiasts
the ability to buy, modify and drive the steed that perfectly fits
