Posted by on March 27, 2012 - more

Yep, you read that right. Shelby decided to step it up another notch. Just when you thought that the new GT 500 was the top-of-the-line production performance vehicle with a ground-stomping 650-horses, a whole new level has been unleashed.

Carroll Shelby was able to drive the new GT-500 at the SEMA show in Las Vegas back in November. The guys expected him to have his socks knocked off but when he stepped out, he asked them when a faster Mustang will be in production, a 1000-HP one.  Shelby had a lot to do with this new ‘Stang to grace the Shelby name.

And that’s not all. A non-street-legal model will be released of this very car, the Shelby GT 1000 S/C that will put down a crazy 1,100-HP! Both Shelby 1000 models will feature the Ford 5.4-liter V8 complete with a supercharger. The street version will feature a Kenne Bell supercharger while the track Shelby 1000 will have a Whipple blower.

That’s a lot of power. Shelby-American said they stripped the Ford engine to nothing and redid the cooling system and the cylinder heads. To back it up, Shelby said they added a 9-inch rear end, a stronger driveshaft. The beefed up the suspension and added larger brakes. Also, a new crankshaft was added with connecting rods and pistons. The hood also has a completely functional air inlet.

There will be a limited number of these new Shelby Mustangs and they come at a hefty price. The street model will have a sticker price of $149,995 just for the package. That’s not the cost of the actual Mustang Shelby GT500 that you have to buy. The Shelby GT 1000 S/C package is said to cost about $200,000.

Dig the car, but ditch the sticker!
