After getting a glimpse of the latest packages and trimmings the 2011 Shelby GT500 Ford Mustang will have, it seems we are now privy to a little more of the story with this teaser video of the car. The forthcoming 2011 GT500 seems to fit well with the descriptions we’ve heard of thus far; this video helps reaffirm the styling cues mentioned prior. Sadly, however, the video is back-dropped with music, so we don’t get the real aural bliss we long for–the intoxicating whine of forced induction. Nonetheless, it’s still a nice clip, so check out more of the next Shelby GT500 via the moving pictures. It’s the best we have until right after Super Bowl Sunday, when the official reveal is slated (Monday).
About a week ago, Ford let slip the pricing on the 2011 Mustang GT as well as the 2011 V6 Mustang, and this week, they’ve taken the shrink wrap off the 2011 Shelby GT500 order guide & pricing docs. It looks like the 2011 Shelby GT500 hardtop will carry a base price of $49,495, while the ragtop will wear a price of $54,495 on the window; these prices include destination & delivery. The Shelby GT500 order guide continues on to show us what we already expected to see under hood, with the aluminum block 5.4-liter V8 packing the pony car’s punch of 540hp.
It was only a matter of time, really. We all knew Shelby & company would be quick to strike and add to the aftermarket collection when the news of the 2011 5.0 Mustang broke loose. Now, the Shelby GT350 has risen from the tide, making a surprising debut at the latest Barrett-Jackson Auction. The announcement and unveiling marks a special note, as we look back 45 years ago to the dawn of the first GT350 as well as the first Shelby big-block Cobra.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past oh say, 15 years, you’d sure to realize the Ford Mustang aftermarket is something that continues to sizzle on far beyond the dreams Carroll Shelby and Lee Iacocca ever imagined back in the 1960s. The staggering number of late-model Mustang spin-offs is something that could be seen as awesome, inspiring, or even sometimes comical. It’s quite daunting just how many flavors of the Ford Mustang there are. What’s more, we’ve done our best to draft up a list for you to digest, observe, and most importantly–help continue to add to it where we’ve left out!
Ready for this bitter pill? You better be, because we’re going to take a look at the comments to see if there are any we’ve missed (to date) and then also recruit you to help build the SN95, Fox, Mustang II, and Classic special edition lists. We’ve got the page breaks ready, so let’s hear it!
The SEMA fallout continues… Classic Recreations, a reputed custom coachbuilder, has announced some initial details surrounding their 1967 Shelby GT500CR, a Ford Mustang variant which was unveiled at the 2009 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Packing the promise of Shelby authenticity and a serious horsepower punch from its hand-crafted 427ci (that’s 7.0 liters by the way!) power plant, the Shelby GT500CR is sure to please the eyes and the ears. What’s even more interesting is the serialized car will available in three trims: Intro, Performance, and Venom. So what’s all the fuss about? What do each of these GT500CR packages offer?

There may be no replacement for displacement, but as contemporary tuning technology has evolved, forced induction has become a very attractive means to an end. The unfolding saga of boosted horsepower is set to continue onward courtesy of Shelby Automobiles announcing their new turbo package for the 2007-2008 Shelby GT Mustang as well as the 2005-2009 Ford Mustang GT. This 550 horsepower “Shelby Turbo” setup also includes various handling, braking and appearance adjustments as well. Developed in conjunction with California-based Turbonetics, this new package is set to have a price tag (installed) of about $22,600. Sounds a little high to us, but if you look at the list of goodies and consider just what it is you’re getting handed in return, it softens the blow to the wallet…a bit. Check out the full scoop in the Press Release for more info.
News on the Shelby Ford Mustang front has somewhat settled for a bit, but we recently caught wind that the original concept Prudhomme Edition Shelby GT500 Super Snake Mustang is headed to Barrett-Jackson in a couple of months. This Shelby a la Prudhomme is equipped with a 5.4-liter modular V8 boosted by a Kenne Bell supercharger (800hp on racing fuel / 750hp on 93 octane) with a custom air intake punching straight through the hood. It also comes straight-up & ready to drag down the strip with a roll bar, fully adjustable BMR suspension, and drag racing tires. Keep reading to get more detail in the Press Release.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for this past week, you’re well aware of the onslaught of Ford Mustang packages recently announced by Shelby Automobiles. Several packages to upgrade the first generation S197 (2005 through 2009) Mustangs and announcement of the 2010 Shelby GT500 Super Snake (pictured above) were detailed to the public just a few days ago. All of the new Shelby packages can be applied to the Mustang GT, Shelby GT, and the Shelby GT500 pony cars currently in ownership circulation. Ready for the laundry list of Shelby applications? Brace yourselves; this might be just a bit much. There is almost a half-dozen new Ford Mustang combinations based upon Mustangs people already own. C’mon, Shelby…a twist on the old adage (you can get too much of a good thing) might come to fruition here and end up with a dreaded backfire. Commercialism and marketing of something artistic and unique is a good thing…until it becomes overly common. Continue Reading →
When it comes to the Ford Mustang and its faithful fan following, there are always great stories and memories involved. We’ve seen the 2010 Mustang given away to one of our Armed Services personnel. We’ve seen some great video productions in a recent Ford video contest. We’ve witnessed firsthand how a Shelby GT500 changed the way people think about Mustang modification. There is one recent unique story we’d like to share at this point: how a blind man got the chance of a lifetime when he won a (spirited) test drive in a brand new 2010 Mustang convertible. Roger Keeney had always dreamed of driving a new Ford Mustang, but since being blinded in 1990, he hasn’t quite had the chance to do so, let alone drive any car. Continue Reading →
