Shelby American has just debuted their new 825-HP Signature Series Mustang, and it’s equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission. This new high horsepower Mustang is a tribute to company founder: Carroll Shelby – and it bears his signature. The car was revealed recently for the first time on this past week at the National Automobile Dealer Association Show which is currently underway in Las Vegas.
The project has been in development at Shelby American in Las Vegas, NV for the last two years, and is based on the Ford Mustang GT. Buyers have the option to select from the donor car’s coupe or convertible, and they can also choose whether they want a 6-speed manual transmission or 10-speed automatic.
The power plant is Ford’s 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 which has been fitted with a whipple supercharger, a high-flow exhaust system, and several new cooling systems. Shelby’s development team has also added magnetic ride suspension, improved braking system, and extra-wide forged wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
“The body was widened with high-quality aluminum fenders to create a square footprint,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American’s R&D chief. “The fit and finish are unbelievable, making it as stunning at rest as it is in motion on the road or track.”
Pricing for the Carroll Shelby Signature Series Mustang starts at $127,795 and only 50 models are planned for North America. A limited number will also be built by select Shelby distributors internationally.
To fit it all, new fenders and a wide-body kit was also required. Included in the kit is a metallic ram air hood, a new front fascia, side skirts, and a rear diffuser.
