Next Up: Shelby Gt Mustang
The First Production Ford Shelby GT fired up its engine and drove out of the Shelby Automobiles build center in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year. The Shelby GT is the third model in the modern Ford Shelby Mustang portfolio. The Shelby GT has an MSRP of $36,970, including applicable taxes and destination and delivery. In addition to the 2007 Shelby GT500, Ford and Shelby created 500 copies of the Ford Shelby GT-H, which are available to rent through select Hertz rental centers.
The Shelby GT model is the result of customers' and dealers' overwhelming demand for a retail version of the Shelby GT-H. "The Shelby GT500 has been a huge success, but we have been overwhelmed at the number of people who want to buy a retail version of the Shelby GT-H," continues Shelby. "The Shelby GT will perfectly complement the GT500, just like the original GT350 and GT500 did back in the '60s."
Shelby GT models begin life as a stock Mustang GT, assembled at AutoAlliance International assembly plant in Flat Rock, MI. The cars are then shipped to the Shelby Automobiles facility in Las Vegas for modification before delivery to Ford dealerships.
