Revology Announces GT500 Replica Pricing
Latest in licensed Shelby models to begin production
The crew at Revology Cars have been working hard getting customer cars built and delivered while expanding the company’s offerings to include full restorations, performance parts (www.revologyperformance.com), and more. Late in 2016 they announced the addition of the 1967 Shelby GT500 to its line of licensed replica vehicles and production will be under way later in 2017 with the ability to place orders coming very soon. As one of the most sought after Shelby models it was only a matter of time before Revology put its unique modern spin on its replica build model. “Our cars feature modern technology to improve performance, reliability, durability, fuel economy, safety, and comfort,” said Tom Scarpello, president and founder of Revology Cars, “while retaining the essential character and style of the original design.”
Ford’s 435hp 5.0L Coyote V-8 from the current generation Mustang GT is the base engine planned for the GT500 replica, however, for the first time Revology is offering a supercharged engine option using a Roush Performance-built 5.0L rated at 600hp and 500 lb-ft of torque! The supercharged car has received a thorough reengineering to handle the increased output of the Roush sourced engine. “This is not just a supercharger bolted to the base engine, this is a purpose-built supercharged engine originally designed for the Roush Stage III Mustang. It is bulletproof and comes with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty. Furthermore, we have changed so much of the car to handle the increased output, it is almost a totally different car,” states Scarpello.
All Revology Mustangs and Shelbys can be created from an original Mustang, or built as a rolling chassis, which classifies it as a replica or kit car in most states. However, the new low volume replica vehicle regulations expected to be implemented this year will allow Revology to sell brand-new, turnkey vehicles in all 50 U.S. states. “From the beginning, we’ve designed our cars to comply with the new legislation,” said Nathan Loucks, Revology’s product development manager. “This is a game-changer for our company and our industry.”
Revology Cars is one of only three companies worldwide licensed by Shelby American to build authorized reproductions of the vintage 1960s Shelby Mustang automobiles. Each Revology Shelby GT500 will be documented in the Worldwide Shelby Registry.
The new Revology Shelby GT500 starts at $185,000 for the 435hp 5.0L Coyote version with six-speed close ratio manual transmission, and runs to $220,000 for the supercharged version. The cars have an authentic appearance inside and out. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, power four wheel disc brakes with 330mm slotted and ventilated rotors, six-piston calipers in front and four-piston in the rear, power rack-and-pinion steering, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, remote trunk release, intermittent wipers, tilt column, Bluetooth, leather seating, three-point seat belts, and a rolling code encrypted ignition system.
