    LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Only 25 special customers will have the opportunity to park one of the rarest Shelby Mustangs in their garage as Carroll Shelby International Inc's (OTC: CSBI) wholly owned subsidiary Shelby Automobiles, Inc. and West Coast Customs (WCC) have teamed up to produce a limited-edition line of high-end 2006 Ford Mustangs. These distinctively-designed Mustangs combine the legendary performance of Carroll Shelby and the creative design modifications of world famous "Kingz of Customz" and celebrity customizers West Coast Customs. Targeted to buyers looking for top-tier performance and state-of-art enhancements, the Shelby/West Coast Customs Mustang will make its debut in the Ford Pavilion at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada and will be available to consumers in the first part of 2006.

    The Shelby/West Coast Customs Mustang begins with a stock 2006 Ford Mustang GT. Legendary car builder Carroll Shelby, the creator of several famous cars including the iconic Cobra, oversaw the car's performance enhancements. An exclusive Vortech Supercharger was added to the V8 engine and the Mustang's computer re-mapped to adapt to the newly-acclaimed output of more than 500 hp. With a racing-level output of that caliber, this Mustang is genuinely worthy of wearing the Shelby badge.

    "We built this car for performance and style," said Carroll Shelby, CEO of Shelby Automobiles, Inc. "It's got the bark of the old muscle cars and the look of a new sports car. It's one of the best projects I've been a part of."

    West Coast Customs, who are pioneers in customizing cars and have done work for influential auto enthusiasts including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kobe Bryant and Arnold Schwarzenegger to name a few, directed the interior and exterior modifications for the Mustang. The outer design for the Shelby/West Coast Customs Mustang is a bold statement that showcases a twist of Shelby historic styling and West Coast Customs' fearless new influence.
    Exterior enhancements include:
    New fender swells and rocker panels
    Specially-designed front bumper, side scoops, rear wing and fenders
    Custom grill inserts with newly-arranged lighting for top and bottom of bumper
    22" Shelby/West Coast Customs-branded Lexani wheels with Pirelli rubber tires
    Race-inspired Shelby/West Coast Customs gas cap
    West Coast Customs is known for pioneering mobile electronics and interior
    accessories in some of the greatest show cars and the Shelby/West Coast
    Customs Mustang is no exception. Packing interior modifications that are
    meant to be seen and be heard this special rolling concert hall includes:
    Custom upholstered interior with embroidered Shelby and West Coast Customs logo badging all around including the steering wheel and center console
    One 7" Sony monitor
    One Sony DVD head unit
    Two West Coast Customs Mid Bass units for the doors
    One 6.5" West Coast Customs comp
    One set of 5.25" coaxials
    Three 10" subwoofers for the trunk
    Two West Coast Customs amps
    "We are honored to be working with an American icon like Carroll Shelby and look forward to making history with him," said Ryan Friedlinghaus, CEO of West Coast Customs. "We wanted to continue the tradition of power that comes with the Shelby name while giving the new Mustang the unique flare and design touches of West Coast Customs. Enthusiasts are going to find that the blend of top-of-the-line performance and one-of-a-kind design bring together the best of both worlds in this Mustang."

    Reminds me of the 2000 Cobra R with that wing and hood (even though it looks like a Saleen Extractor). I like it!

    I think it would look better without the fog lights in the grille, and lose the rear wing. Otherwise I like it.
