Between the Ford Mustang V6, Mustang EcoBoost, Mustang GT and the new Mustang GT350/GT350R, those shopping for the new pony have a lot of options. Well, it’s time to add another offering of the Mustang to the list. Shelby American has announced their new 2015 Shelby GT, which was unveiled at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction in Ford Motor Company’s booth.
“This 2015 Shelby GT incorporates all of the engineering lessons we’ve learned building high performance vehicles over the past 50 years,” said Joe Conway, co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American “With the international distribution of the current Ford Mustang, we worked closely with our partners to develop a car that can be offered in both North America and overseas. It’s the first Shelby muscle car in our history designed from day one to be a truly global vehicle.”
Power for the 2015 Shelby GT comes from a Ford Racing Performance Parts kit that features a 627 HP supercharger, performance handling kit and half shafts. Gearing has also been upgraded 3.73 gears and paired with chrome-tipped Borla exhaust.
