Shelby Launches 627hp 2015 Shelby GT
Mustang GT-based with a Blown 5.0L V8
Just days after the reveal of the GT350R, Mustang fans have a whole new pony car to covet. Based on the 2015 Mustang GT, the Shelby GT takes the potent 5.0L V8 and tops it with a Ford Racing supercharger. Combined with a Ford Racing Borla exhaust, the 5.0L cranks out almost 200 additional horsepower. The 627hp output is just a handful shy of the recently discontinued GT500. It’s not just horsepower that Shelby brings to the table, the Shelby GT moniker has been a harbinger of performance on the road course, so the Shelby GT package also means upgraded shocks, springs, and sway bars along with staggered Michelin rubber, 275/35/20 on the front and 305/30/20 rear mounted to 9.5x20 and 10.5x20 Shelby Venice wheels by WELD Racing.
The Shelby GT will also receive a full complement of carbon fiber bodywork including: a hood with customizable hood vents, front splitter, rocker panels, two-piece rear diffuser, rear deck lid, trunk spoiler, mirror covers, and a hood extension. Of course, the car will also wear Shelby badging on the deck lid, grille, fenders, and C-pillar.
Inside you’ll find Shelby branded custom headrests, dash plaque, and engine plate, along with carbon fiber dash pod with 3 gauges, Shelby GT sill plates, and Shelby branded floor mats.
