Shelby Performance Parts (SPP), a division of Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc. (CSBI.PK), has now introduced the highly anticipated Shelby Wide Body Kit for 2010-2014 Mustang and Shelby models. The Shelby Wide Body package was unveiled on the 2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this January, and was recently released for 2005-2009 Mustang and Shelby cars. Shelby Performance Parts now gives current generation Mustang and Shelby owners the option to buy the kit and have it installed by a local shop of their choosing.
“The Shelby Wide Body Kit for 2005-2009 Mustang and Shelby’s, as well as our New York and Detroit auto show generated so much interest by current model owners that we decided to offer the package to them, as well,” said Shelby Performance Parts Vice President Jer Gervasi. “This means that 2009-2014 Mustang and Shelby owners won’t have to send their car to our Las Vegas facilities to tailor fit a Shelby Wide Body Kit to their ride.”
The kit for 2010-2014 Mustangs and Shelby’s is available in two versions. The complete package includes rear quarter panels, adding 6 inches of fender to house up to 13 inch rear wheels, as well as the front quarter panels that allow for 10 inch front wheels. The Shelby Wide Body Kit is also available in a rear-only option. Both packages include a Shelby Billet Fuel Door, installation instructions, special tools and all the necessary hardware for installation. However, the kit requires substantial body and paint work and is recommended to be assembled by a professional body shop.
Developed exclusively by Shelby American, the kit not only improves styling, but performance as well. The ability to clear 345 wide rear tires puts Mustang power to the pavement as never before.
“Built using lightweight components and extraordinary craftsmanship, the Shelby Wide Body Kit is built to OEM-quality fit and finish to seamlessly integrate into the Mustang’s body lines,” added Gervasi. “This package adds serious grip to the Mustang that will turn heads and quarter miles.”
The rear only package for 2010-2014 Mustangs and Shelby’s starts at $3,399; the four quarter panel kit is $5,999, not including wheels and tires.
“These kits are just a few examples of our ongoing effort to provide the Mustang community a little ‘Shelby Magic’ through Shelby branded styling and performance parts,” said Shelby American President John Luft.
