PostHeaderIcon Shelby GT350 and GT350R Get 2018 Model Year

Shelby-Mustang-GT350

If you didn’t like the look of the new Ford Mustang and were worried your beloved Shelby GT350 could get affected by it, rest easy because the high-performance pony is safe… at least for another year. Ford just announced they are extending Shelby GT350 and GT350R models availability to 2018 model year. 

So you can still buy these bad boys with the body you are used to and like very much. It would been pity if Ford were to discontinue these models, not just because they are amazing sports/muscle cars for the track, but also because a lot has gone into designing them:

The 2018 Shelby GT350 and the R model will continue to offer the 5.2-liter V8 FPC engine which produces 526 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque, plus standard engine oil, transmission and differential coolers, braking system with vented 15.5-inch two-piece front rotors and six-piston Brembo calipers along with the MagneRide damping system. In terms of tech features you get SYNC 3, voice-activated navigation and nine-speaker audio system. An available Convenience Package for GT350 models replaces Recaro manual seats with six-way power, heated and cooled sport seats with Miko suede inserts for both driver and passenger.

PostHeaderIcon Shelby Super Snake 50th Anniversary Edition

The history of the Ford Mustang extends more than 50 years, and in that span, a the muscle car’s legacy has been defined by a number of custom tunes and special edition models. As rich as that history is though, there is one model that trumps them all, largely because Shelby only built one model of it as a prototype. That model was the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, and to this day, it remains as the most expensive Mustang ever sold when it fetched $1.3 million at a Mecum auction back in 2013.

Over the years, Ford has revived the Super Snake name a number of different ways, most recently with the 2015 Shelby Super Snake, a special edition Mustang that was limited to just 300 units. Fast forward to this year and the Super Snake name is making another comeback with the launch of the Shelby Super Snake 50th Anniversary Edition. Yes, the one-and-only original 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and for a car that has turned into arguably the most iconic Mustang in history, a special edition run of 500 units (499 more than the original Super Snake!) is the least Ford can do to commemorate the original Super Snake.

Like with most special editions, the 2017 Shelby Super Snake 50th Anniversary Edition comes with a long list of exclusive features and details, including new bodywork from Shelby, commemorative appointments to indicate its status, and best of all, the option to get the car’s power up to 750 horsepower.

The 2017 Shelby Super Snake 50th Anniversary Edition may never have the lasting legacy of the legendary 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, but it is a fitting tribute to a muscle car that was completely ahead of its time in more ways than one.

PostHeaderIcon Shelby 260 Cobra "CSX 2000"

If you ask any car enthusiast the name of the person who has been the most influential to the automotive world, nine times out of ten you’ll get the answer “Carroll Shelby.” And, rightfully so – Carroll Shelby had an amazing automotive legacy. And, that legacy all started out with the car you see here: a 1962 Shelby Cobra CSX 2000. While all early Cobras are special in their own right, this one is excessively special because it was the first Cobra built. Ever. It came to be at the hands of Carroll Shelby and a few other people in a small garage in California.

There’s a lot more to this specific Cobra, though. See, this Cobra was built by Carroll Shelby and was owned solely by him. Furthermore, there is a funny story behind it. When the car was complete, it was shown at a number of different venues used by the motoring press and used for testing and development. The funny part is that Shelby had the world convinced that Cobra production was running at full force when in fact the CSX 2000 was the only Cobra at the time. To pull this off, the car was repainted prior to most appearances to give the illusion that there was more than just one for the first seven months of its existence.

With that said, this specific Cobra is ready to go home with a new owner and is being auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s in Monterey in August of 2016. It is being offered by the Carroll Hall Shelby Trust and, as such, should come with proof of authenticity. The car isn’t exactly in the best condition it has ever been in – there is definitely wear here and there. But, that is a part of the car’s history. So, let’s take a good look at it before it goes under the hammer in a couple of months.

Update 08-21-2016: This gorgeous car just broke the record for an American car sold at Auction. Check out the Prices section below for all the details.

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Mecum Auction Indianapolis – Recap

The History of Mecum Auctions goes back to 1988 at the Rockford Airport, where the first Mecum Auction was held. Over the last 28 years, Mecum has grown tremendously, now being ranked No. 1 in the U.S. for collector cars offered at auction, collector cars sold at auction, total dollar volume of sales, and the largest number of auction venues. On top of that, it has become the host of the world’s largest collector car auction that is hosted every year in Florida.

This last week, Mecum hosted an auction in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. This year there was a total of 1,859 lots that included plenty of collector cars, a few gas pumps, some neon signs, and even a few coin-operated kid rides. The big news from this auction, however, was the pair of Shelby Cobras that broke seven digits before the hammer dropped and a few other classics that are well worth taking an extra look at.

We’ve taken the time to cover the biggest sellers from the auction as well as a few of those that didn’t sell at all. There was even a 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Pro Stock that got as high as $750,000 but didn’t get quite high enough to cross that thin reserve line. That was just one of many that didn’t sell, and those two Shelby Cobras weren’t the only models that found new owners last week. So, let’s take a look at a few of the most notable vehicles that went under the hammer last week.


PostHeaderIcon Shelby MkII GT40

Carroll Shelby certainly created a name for himself in the 1960s, not the least of his accomplishments being the 1-2-3 win at the 24 Hours of LeMans in 1966. That marked the first time an American car had won the iconic race. Shelby’s fame as a car builder skyrocketed in the fallout. To help celebrate the Shelby on his 85th birthday, Shelby Distribution USA and Shelby Automobiles reproduced 255 examples of the GT40 race car for the 2009 model year.

The car was offered the three color schemes, each mimicking the three racing liveries that saw action in the 1966 Le Mans race. In total, 85 examples of each were built. Each car could customized to have either left- or right-hand drive, and were completely road-legal. Each car received a Shelby Automobiles MSO and sales were recorded in the Shelby Registry, making the whole process even more historical. A dash plaque records each car’s build number and authenticity as a legitimate and licensed replica.

The design of the replica Ford GT40 is an exact copy of the originals’, though these 2009 examples were constructed from electro-galvanized sheet steel. This helps prevent rust, ensuring each car lasts for decades to come. The pieces were also laser cut to the exact measurements of the originals.

The only kicker to the MKII GT40 – it was only offered without an engine. Yep, in order to skirt emissions and crash testing regulations, the car was sold as a rolling chassis. Customers were expected to install their own engine, which of course, should only be a 427 Ford V-8. Anything else would be heresy. Those who wanted to track their Shelby MKII GT40 could opt for the available race version. The package included a roll bar, fuel cell, and air conditioner delete.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang

Ford gave birth to the GT350 nameplate in 1965, the same year when Carroll Shelby was commissioned to build high-performance versions of the first-generation Mustang. Built in 1965 and 1966, the initial GT350 was not just lighter than a regular Mustang, but more powerful too. Originally rated at 271 ponies, the ’Stang’s 4.7-liter V-8 was uprated to deliver 306 horsepower at Shelby American’s shop, where it would also be equipped with heavy-duty rear axles, larger rear drum brakes, and front disc brakes. All 1965 models were painted Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes, while the 1966 model year brought more colors to the car. The GT350 continued in 1967, 1968 and 1969 with more cosmetic changes that performance updates. The GT350 moniker disappeared until 2011, when it returned for the fifth-generation Mustang. As the redesigned pony rolls into dealerships for the 2015 model year, the Shelby GT350 has made yet another comeback as a track-prepped version of the sixth-gen Mustang.

Introduced for the 2016 model year, the first Shelby Mustang GT350 to feature an independent rear suspension is Dearborn’s answer to the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. The body panels were reshaped into a more aerodynamic and aggressive shape, including a completely new front section, while the GT’s standard 5.0-liter V-8 was replaced by a slightly larger unit specifically developed for this muscle car. But enough with the spoilers. Keep reading to find out everything there is to know about the new Shelby GT350.

PostHeaderIcon Shelby Daytona Coupe

Caroll Shelby cherished one dream while racing in Europe and North and South America throughout the 1950s; building the world’s fastest sports car. By 1956 he had already come up with a name for his car, it would be called the Cobra. Soon after his 1959 victory at the 24 Hours of LeMans for Aston Martin, Shelby was struck by heart problems. Reluctant to do so, he was forced to give up racing as a driver. This lifestyle setback turned out for the best, however, as Shelby had the opportunity to pursue his Cobra-building dreams.

A few years earlier and on the other side of the globe, John Tojeiro designed a small sports car, which sold under the AC Ace name. The open-top car was a simple tube-frame chassis with a Bristol 2.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine derived from the BMW M328 engine. The lightweight combination made the Ace a moderately successful racer. However, its success was jeopardized when BMW began phasing out the 2.0-liter. Other engines were tested, including American V-8s, but the AC Ace’s future seemed dim. So dim in fact, Tojeiro decided to end production of the car.

That’s when Shelby heard about the AC Ace and its lightweight design. He immediately contacted AC, along with his long-time associates at Ford Motor Company. He convinced AC to continue constructing the Ace and Ford to supply special versions of its Fairlane engine for installation in the AC chassis. Shelby and his team of engineers and builders shoehorned the V-8 into an AC at Shelby’s Venice, California shop. Of course, these early AC Ace cars were the roadsters that became known as the Shelby AC Cobra. The cars enjoyed a successful racing career, but could never outrun Enzo Ferrari, Shelby’s longtime Le Means rival, and his Ferrari 250 GTO.

That’s where the Shelby Daytona Coupe comes in. Shelby had Pete Brock design a more aerodynamic body for the AC Ace – one that would allow for higher top speeds at Le Mans’ Mulsanne Straight. The design worked, allowing the coupe to hit 190 mph. The car’s debut race would be the 1964 Daytona Continental 2000 at the famed Daytona international Speedway in Florida.

Shelby GT350R-JLG

Everybody who’s ever met Jay Leno, or seen him on TV, knows that he’s a big fan of Carroll Shelby and any car that bears his name. The latest Shelbymobile to make its way to JL’s magnificent garage is the 2016 Shelby GT350R and here’s the man himself – Leno, not Shelby – giving you an in-depth tour of the vehicle as well as a test drive.

PostHeaderIcon Shelby Terlingua Mustang

In 1965, a Shelby GT350-R driven by legendary Ken Miles won its debut race at the Green Valley Raceway in Dallas. Shelby’s win produced quite a stir, but so did the black-and-yellow logo of a rabbit holding its paw in the air. The logo belonged to Terlingua Racing Team, which went on to become an important name in motorsport in the 1960s, being used on several Mustangs, Cobras, and even Indy 500 and Le Mans winners.

As part of the group that, according to Bill Neale, “would go down to Terlingua to hang out, hunt deer, ride motorcycles, have some drinks and eat real well” long before the race team was put together, Carroll Shelby revived the Terlingua Mustang in 2007 by launching a limited-edition, V-6-powered Mustang wrapped in the famous black-and-yellow livery. It’s been nearly a decade since then, and the Terlingua Mustang returned once again as a spin-off of the sixth-generation pony.

Limited to only 50 units, the new Shelby Terlingua Mustang is based on the 2016 Mustang GT and, much like its predecessor, comes wrapped in a racing livery. As the base model suggests, this one is powered by a V-8, but the drivetrain has very little in common with the stock model, packing a supercharger, and a lot more power than you can get from a Ford dealership. Keep reading to find out more about that.

PostHeaderIcon Shelby GT EcoBoost Mustang

The Shelby name has been attached to a lot of different kinds of cars from different manufacturers and with different kinds of engines. But so far, Shelby Mustangs have all been powered by V-8s. Displacements and power outputs have varied by a lot, and some have been naturally aspirated while others have used forced induction, but it has always been a V-8. That all changes this year, as Shelby has just announced a Shelby GT package for the EcoBoost Mustang. The package will be available in North America, but it is intended to appeal primarily to customers in other parts of the world. This is why the car will make its first public appearance at the Goodwood Revival in the U.K., also marking the official European debut of Shelby International.

To a lot of Americans, the idea of a four-cylinder Shelby Mustang might seem blasphemous; but for those living in other countries, particularly in Europe, V-8 Mustangs may be out of reach due to huge price increases caused by tax and insurance regulations. The GT EcoBoost is therefore a way for Europeans to be able to buy a Shelby Mustang without having to pay near-supercar prices for it.

PostHeaderIcon Shelby GT350R Production Begins at Flat Rock

Shelby GT350R Production-0

Employees at Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant stopped working for a minutes yesterday to gather together and celebrate a special moment. The moment in question was the when the first production Shelby GT350R Mustang rolled off the line opening a new chapter in the pony car’s glamorous history.

Shelby GT350R is the most athletic Mustang ever designed primarily to work on the race track. That is what make this model special. Prior to the GT350R, hot Mustangs were crude and unsophisticated muscle car with a big engine and not much finesse – kind of like a large drunk redneck with a big gun. They were bound to cause trouble at some point.

Shelby GT350R Production-3

“This is a special day for all Mustang enthusiasts,” said Bill Ford, executive chairman, Ford Motor Company.  “We have taken the GT350 formula to the next level of innovation, style and performance.  Today the legend continues.”

Ford went out their way to make sure the new Shelby GT350R is a proper sports car. Not only have they given it an all-new engine, a 5.2-liter dual-overhead-cam flat-plane crankshaft V8 with 525 horsepower, they have also worked for months on the car’s suspension, steering system and aerodynamics to make sure it handles as good as it looks. The R version comes with a number of special visual features, including red painted brake calipers, red pin striping at the edges of the optional over-the-top racing stripes and GT350R badging. Inside is high-contrast red stitching, Shelby GT350R badging and the D-shaped steering wheel fitted with a red center mark at the top.

PostHeaderIcon Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe 50th Anniversary

After winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959 (in the Aston Martin DBR1), Carroll Shelby wanted to return to Europe to beat Ferrari with a car of his own design. In 1964, he began work on the 1964-1965 Shelby Daytona Coupe, a car that would solve the 1963 Shelby Cobra’s issues with aerodynamic drag, which limited its top speed on the 3-mile long Mulsanne straight. Only six were built before Shelby was reassigned to the 1964-1969 Ford GT40 project, but the Daytona Coupe went on to win 10 races during 1964 and 1965, as well as the 1965 FIA World Sportscar Championship.

Not only did the Daytona Coupe become the first car to beat Ferrari since 1959, but it also made Shelby the first American constructor to win an international title. Additionally, the Coupe set no fewer than 25 land-

speed records at Bonneville in 1965. It’s been half a decade since those tremendous achievements, and Shelby American is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its FIA World Championship with a limited series of continuation Cobra Daytona Coupes.

Though this isn’t the first continuation Daytona (Superformance already offers a licensed replica), Shelby’s is arguably the most authentic to date. The 50th anniversary Daytona Coupe is actually more than just a replica, sporting modern disc brakes and a stronger frame, and including an aluminum body option, a first for continuation cars.

PostHeaderIcon Shelby GT350R Gets Fancy Carbon Fiber Wheels

Shelby GT350R carbon wheels-1

As you know, Ford has pulled out all the stops to make sure the new generation Mustang, especially the Shelby versions, are comparable to their European rivals in terms of quality, material and refinement. The latest step towards that goal is the development of the world’s first mass-produced carbon fiber wheels for Shelby GT350R.

Muscle cars, of course, have always been praised for their rather crude simplicity. You want fancy stuff like carbon and leather, go pay big bucks for a European car. With the new Shelby GT350R though, Ford didn’t really have a choice. They had to fit the car with enough bells and whistle to convince people it is worth considering over the high-powered, high-quality sports car from the other side of the Atlantic.

What’s more, Shelby GT350R is massively powerful car intended mainly for track use. It is bought largely by the kind of people who spend their Friday nights studying gear ratios and apex speed, so they can set fast lap times on Saturday. Having the option of carbon fiber wheels is a huge plus for this car and possibly the most appealing extra to its buyers.

As for the benefits of carbon fiber wheels, well, for starters they look rather cool. More importantly, they reduce the unsprung weight of the car which has a direct effect on handling and performance. They are also good for the suspension. Another advantage of using carbon fiber wheels is bragging rights. Right now Shelby and Koenigsegg are the only producers using these things. Also, the wheels are made using ceramic plasma arc technology first used on the original Space Shuttle.

PostHeaderIcon Londoners Have Mixed Feelings about Shelby GT350R!

Shelby GT350R London

This is Ford being incredibly mean again. After the car’s dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the hands of former Stig ben Collins, they took the new Shelby GT350R Mustang, which is NOT available in Europe, to London to see the public’s reaction to this charming American redneck.

And it was all well until they started it up. Turns out Londoners love the aesthetics of the Shelby GT350R, as you can tell by the sheer number of people wanting to take their pictures with it. But it seems they don’t appreciate how damn loud this thing is. You can’t really blame them for not liking loud sports cars though. Every Summer they have to put up with a bunch of Arabs taking over the streets of London with their super loud super cars. Even the most hard-core petrolhead would go mad if they have to listen to loud exhaust noises day in and day out.

FYI, the 2016 Shelby GT350R Mustang is powered by a new 5.2-liter dual-overhead-cam V8 engine with a flat-plane crankshaft developing over 520 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. It is lighter, tauter, and stiffer than the normal GT350 and is designed as a fairly affordable track day car.

Shelby GT350R-gfos

The new generation Ford Mustang, as you know, is officially available in the UK now. But The Europeans will not get to enjoy the Mustang experience to the fullest because Ford is still holding something back. They are not bringing the high-performance Shelby GT350R Mustang to Europe, but they are more than happy to tease people with it with a demonstration at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

It’s actually cooler than that because Ford enlisted the services of a very special man to pilot the Shelby GT350R up the Goodwood hill. It’s former Top Gear Stig, skilled novelist, and the man who teaches SAS commandos the art of evasive driving, Ben Collins. Check him out:

Shelby GT350R Highlights: The car features the first-ever production V8 from Ford with a flat-plane crankshaft – the most powerful naturally aspirated engine Ford has ever produced with over 520 horsepower– plus a specially tuned suspension. It is fitted with revised spring rates and antiroll bars, lower ride height, unique track-tuned alignment settings, revised bushings and jounce bumpers, cross-axis ball joints in the front suspension, and revised calibration controlling the MagneRide dampers. The lightweight wheels will be shod in Michelin’s top-shelf Pilot Sport Cup 2 high-performance tires with rubber compound and a construction unique to Shelby GT350R.

Shelby GT350R-C

Following the launch of the Shelby Mustang GT350 and GT350R, the American firm in partnership with mother company Ford has created a racing version of the new pony car. The Shelby GT350R-C is prepared to compete in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge.

Making its track debut this weekend at Watkins Glen, Shelby GT350R-C is powered by Ford’s all-new 5.2-liter flat-plane crankshaft V8 which makes 520 horsepower in the road-going model. It will be interesting to see how this unit performs under the touch circumstances that are part of any motorsport environment. It will be a real test of performance and durability for the engine and can potentially improve its street cred.

Besides the engine, Shelby GT350R-C also benefits from similar suspension setup to the road car, albeit with some modifications including revised spring rates and antiroll bars, lower ride height, unique track-tuned alignment settings, revised bushings and cross-axis ball joints in the front. These are necessary changes if you want to use a muscle car on the race track.

The GT350R-C race car will be managed by Ford partner Multimatic Motorsports. They have appointed Billy Johnson, Scott Maxwell, Austin Cindric as the drivers of the ‘Stang for its racing debut at Watkins Glen.

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2015 Shelby Super Snake

2015 Shelby Super Snake-0

If the new Ford Mustang GT is way too weak for you and find the Shelby GT350 a half-assed effort to make things right, Shelby American has come up with something that might remedy your situation. It’s the 2015 Shelby Super Snake Mustang and it can be ordered with up to 750 horsepower.

The standard version of the 2015 Shelby Super Snake comes with a supercharged version of Ford’s 5.0 liter V8 motor with 650 horsepower. But horsepower-obsessed maniacs can ask Shelby to replace the Ford supercharger with a Kenne Bell or Whipple supercharger, in which case they’ll get 750+ horsepower. Both versions can be had with either six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.

Keeping the 2015 Shelby Super Snake in check now it has more power than the chassis can possibly handle is a host of high-performance parts including Ford Performance half shafts, Ford Performance 3.73 gears and a Ford Performance Suspension and Handling Package as well as Wilwood brakes. The tuner also installs a Borla exhaust system so that the soundtrack matches the power.

The new Super Snake also looks the part, thanks to a custom styling kit featuring front and rear spoilers, side skirts, and new hood with a massive scoop in it. The car also gets sport grilles, carbon mirrors, racing stripes, flared wheel arches, and a set of 20-inch WELD Racing wheels.

2015 Shelby Super Snake is offered as a $49,995 package, meaning you have to either supply the base Mustang GT or pay for it.

If the new Ford Mustang GT is way too weak for you and find the Shelby GT350 a half-assed effort to make things right, Shelby American has come up with something that might remedy your situation. It’s the 2015 Shelby Super Snake Mustang and it can be ordered with up to 750 horsepower.

The standard version of the 2015 Shelby Super Snake comes with a supercharged version of Ford’s 5.0 liter V8 motor with 650 horsepower. But horsepower-obsessed maniacs can ask Shelby to replace the Ford supercharger with a Kenne Bell or Whipple supercharger, in which case they’ll get 750+ horsepower. Both versions can be had with either six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.
