Visitors to the Woodward Dream Cruise in 2018 were debated for the latest Shelby American offer: Ford Shelby GT in 2019.
After a short wait, Shelby GT returns to the market with a revised appearance and more power from its V-8.
Available as a coupe or convertible, the car is based on the 460 horsepower Mustang GT, but sports a 5.0 liter V-8 that matches 480 hp Mustang Bullitt, with the extra stroke of a Borla exhaust kit. Buyers seeking extra performance can choose a supercharged upgrade over the title that delivers over 700 hp.
Shelby also worked with Ford Performance to tailor the suspension for better handling without compromising driving quality, and the custom aero set and wheel pattern should make sure the vehicle stands out. Interestingly, Shelby also offers a Shelby GT-H styling package inspired by the 2007 Shelby GT-H, a car Shelby says where the inspiration of the first Shelby GT also launched for 2007.
Shelby American will build the modern 2019 Shelby GT in Las Vegas plant for distribution through selected Ford dealers in North America. Affiliated stores and dealers will offer the car in Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, Australia and Asia.
The price starts at $ 61,345, which includes a donor Mustang GT, and each example will receive a Shelby serial number and listing in The Shelby Registry.
Shelby GT was not the only new Mustang unveiled at Woodward. Ford used the event to debut its 2018 Cobra Jet powered by a newly developed 5.2 liter supercharged V-8.
