The late, great Carroll Shelby was born in January 1923, and Shelby American has announced a limited production of 100 Centennial Edition Mustangs to honour what would have been his 100th birthday.
Shelby American has announced a limited production of 100 Centennial Edition Mustangs
Naturally, this only implies one thing: more power. Shelby American claims that the Ford Mustang GT for the 2023 model year will receive up to 750 horsepower.
We've been told that there will also be some style and handling improvements.
A small number will be made available through SA's authorised mod shops throughout the world, but just 100 will be produced, with the majority leaving SA's Las Vegas plant.
Choose between a fastback or convertible, a manual or automatic transmission, or, if you already own a 2023 Mustang GT, arrange for it to be directly modified.
The cost of this procedure was $49,995.
Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief of R&D, said that the new, limited-edition vehicle "celebrates Carroll Shelby and recognises his numerous achievements." "Building a car that was actually born to run was necessary for us to properly honour him. Our brand-new Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Mustang is a well-balanced vehicle that offers much more than an increase in power.
We improved the world-class 5.0L V8 Mustang GT's handling and appearance as well. It offers every performance Carroll needed for a vehicle to bear his name. We are including a black Stetson, similar to the one he wore, with each car since we are so sure he would approve.
Yes, you read that correctly. Each of the 100 Shelby Centennial Edition Mustangs includes a black Stetson, a membership to Team Shelby, and a book commemorating the Shelby Centennial.
