As we creep closer to the 50th Anniversary of the Shelby Mustang nameplate, the rumor mill keeps churning out the hot hits with notes that the new Shelby American team is set to release a limited series of 2012 Mustang rent-a-racer cars to the masses. That’s right–it’s 1966 all over again! So, just how do the talking heads keep the Joe Wrenches of America from swapping parts like they did in the Classic era…meh, we’ll let them fight that battle. We’re just excited to get our hands on a 400+ horsepower 5.0 Mustang that we don’t have to tarp for a portion of the year, yet fully enjoy it on the road course or drag strip!
There isn’t much to go on just yet, as the last GT-H cars we saw posted in the limelight were those merely for sale; this time ’round, it looks like these add-on applied cars will be true rentals, ready for the rippin’ and the tearin’!
Stay tuned, as we’ll keep you posted as we hear more!
