Welcome and nice. That's the first one I've seen on here. Doesn't it come supercharged? And do you have a rear shot?

The GTS is essentially a budgeted Shelby package applied to a 2011-13 Mustang V6 or GT. Similiar to the Shelby GTs Mustangs of 06-08. I plan on supercharging her after the warranty is up because if you supercharge her now it voids the cars warranty.

Awesome! Worth the penny?

Shelby American Inc. - 2013 GT350

Looking at the GT (at shelbyamerican.com) and adding a S/C to it you might as well just go for a GT500 from Ford and call it a day.

I think that is the cost of the base package and they go up from there. So the cost of the car plus the 10K and up.

Shelby has been doing them even with the 05/09 4.0 v6. It was the terligua (sp?) Model. They had the CS6 too. I saw the GTS run at Barrett Jackson last year at the test track in the parking lot. Looked very quick. I didnt like the exhaust note though. I was interested in and maybe still am idk in bringing my car to the LV facility to have the car modded and serialized but their are lots of options for the money... Do u think the GTS 3.7 cars will eventually be worth the investment over time like the GT500, Gt350, KR etc? I dont think so but maybe I am wrong. In any case, it is an awesome.car and good to see someone offering a supercharged serialized car with lots of potential from a reputable name like Shelby. Roush has the RS and is way more affordable but also doesnt come with forced induction or nearly amount of suspension goodies etc as the Shelby.

Both quarter windows are done just different pictures because I installed them after the car got delivered to me. I will repost updated pictures. The GTS package is worth it but can also get very expensive with upgrades. For that reason I purchased the V6 premium with the leather, sync and track apps.

Ah!

I love the package. I think it is worth the 10K considering Roush wants 4K just for some bolt ons, Stickers & the GT Brembo Wheels.

The GTS has a custom hood, front fascia, better rear brakes, and custom wheels, FRPP handling package, Caster Camber plates, Exhaust etc. All with the warranty too.

The other side of it is that you could take the 10k and upgrade the wheels, supercharge and do some brake or handling upgrades on your own... The money spent at Shelby on the body and paint would go into the ProCharger SC... but it won't have the Shelby name on it. Of course the labor involved too might be worth it for many to just buy the car done at Shelby too. And your warranty goes out the window too if you do it on your own.

Was just looking at the website and you could get it with a supercharger. Both GT and V6. It's actually not too bad of a deal at all. I'm not personally a fan of the body parts but it comes with quite a bit of upgraded parts like you said. If I had known about this I would've considered it, if I could've left the body stock. Also saw you they could upgrade the driveshaft, custom tunes, other suspension bits. Can get the wheels in chrome or black. Actually starting to wish I had done this lol.

All in all I am very pleased with the outcome of the car. I wanted something different that would not break the bank and Shelby delivered. The car handles great on the road with the new suspension mods, Goodyear F1 tires, large vented rotors and brakes. Also included with each package is all sorts of Shelby documentation, photos of the build and goodies. As per Shelby this is the only white GTS with Azure blue stripes they have converted to date because the Azure blue is the newest stripe color added to the list this past October.
