The Shelby GT is, as the name suggests, based on the Mustang GT, but has been extensively modified. The Shelby GT gets Shelby spec wheels and tires, suspension components from Ford Performance, a unique Shelby vented hood, and a Borla exhaust system that adds 10 horsepower (for a total of 460) to the GT. The exterior styling changes include a redesigned grille, a rear spoiler, and billet aluminum fluid caps, all with Le Mans-style striping and Shebly badging all around. Inside, you’ll find unique upholstery, door sill plates, and a dash plaque that firmly establishes each vehicle as a collector’s item.
Optional equipment is available, and the highlight of the available equipment is a supercharger that bumps the Shelby GT up to 750 horsepower. This is part of the GT/SC package, which also comes with a suspension upgrade and unique striping. The Heavy Duty Package adds an extreme radiator and other touches to help the Mustang handle all of the additional power. Extreme Brembo brakes are available too, along with a rear seat delete, a wide body kit, and multiple suspension choices.
