This raffle is an amazing chance for car enthusiasts to win a Shelby Mustang GT500,” said Steve Volk, one of the founders of the Shelby American Collection. “This car is equipped with the most powerful production V-8 engine ever built, and is arguably Ford’s ultimate muscle car to date. This is also an opportunity to help sustain America’s automotive heritage by supporting the operation of one of the finest and most extensive collections of
Shelby Cobras, Shelby Mustangs, Ford GT 40s and memorabilia in the world.
With this Shelby up for grabs, you can bet that it comes with some pretty sweet standard features such as the 5.8-liter DOHC 32-valve V-8 supercharged engine capable of 662 horsepower and 631 lb-ft of torque. On top of that it features the SVT Performance Package with a Torsen differential, 19-inch wheels in the front, 20-inch wheels in the rear, cockpit-adjustable Bilstein electronic dampers, and an SVT-tuned suspension with unique shocks and springs.
If that wasn’t enough for you, add Brembo brakes, an adjustable traction control system, Recaro leather seats, Ford Sync with Shaker 500 audio system, and SiriusXM satellite radio. It also features the SVT Track Pack that includes an external engine oil cooler, transmission cooler, and a differential cooler.
The winner of the raffle can choose to take home the 2014 Shelby GT500 or $50,000 in cash. The Shelby comes with a 3 year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper Ford warranty.
