Ok, I admit that what's coming next is definitely not brand new and yes, the basic vehicle in the form of a Ford Mustang V of the 2nd generation (facelift) is not even the latest Mustang VI generation! Aaaaaaaaber, this converted Shelby GT500 with standard 569 hp has it really thick under the domed hood. The guys around the Shelby American team presented the vehicle back in 2012 (April 5th for the New York International Auto Show), on tuningblog.eu, however, the steam hammer has not yet been mentioned so that of course I have to make up for it. As I said, a Ford Mustang V of the 2nd generation (model upgrade) was the base vehicle for the tuning, but it has little in common with the car from the assembly line, at least technically. After the tuning cure the so-called Shelby 1000 (should actually be called 1.200) It is not only much more exciting, more individual and also more dynamic than the production version, but with 1.200PS it is above everything that may come. So if you are thinking of buying a Ford Mustang in the future, you should look out for a used Shelby 100 limited to 1000 pieces somewhere. Small catch? Jupp ... He's not street legal, at least not with this performance! If you choose the extremely weak and completely underpowered 950PS version, you can also make the streets unsafe. As for the changes made to the optics or the technology, we have been able to find out a few details. As usual, we have listed what we know below in a summary. If you discover any further changes that we haven't listed, just use the comment box and let us know!
Ps. If you have more tuned vehicles like this one 2016er Superformance 50th Anniversary Ford Shelby GT40 MkII or even the 750PS Shelby Terlingua Ford Mustang from Shelby American just look at the photo hint below on the tuner name!
