2012 Shelby GT 1000 Coupe - Muscle Cars BlogNEW YORK – March 27, 2012 – Shelby American, Inc., a division of Carroll Shelby International (CSBI.PK), will introduce its most powerful Shelby yet on April 5, 2012, at the New York International Auto Show. Carroll Shelby and his team created the Shelby 1000 by starting with a 2012 Ford Shelby GT500 and kicking its handling, horsepower and braking to the performance edge.

The Shelby 1000 will be offered in both a street and a Shelby 1000 S/C “off-road” track version. The street legal, pump gas version dyno’s out at approximately 950 HP, while the track oriented S/C edition is rated at over 1,100 HP.

“Carroll Shelby is a visionary who has pushed the boundaries of performance his entire life,” said John Luft, president of Shelby American. “He challenged the Shelby American team to develop the Shelby 1000 and wanted to unveil this amazing new Shelby at the New York Auto Show celebrating 50 years since he unveiled the very first Shelby Cobra that changed the face of high performance. We will have that very car, Cobra #1 (CSX2000) along with Shelby 1000 on display in our Shelby American booth in New York.”

Restomod ’67 Shelby GT500 Mustang - Muscle Cars BlogEngine swaps have been around as long as there have been different manufacturers making a variety of models. Whether it’s putting a flathead V8 in your Model A Ford, or injecting some modern power into your aging musclecar, an engine swap can define an entire vehicle. Such is the case with this spectacular 1967 Mustang that’s dressed up like a Shelby GT500 and packs a 2004 Mustang Cobra power plant under the hood. That means 32 valves, a supercharger, and drivability that they couldn’t imagine back in the good old, bad old days.

The rest of the car was updated as well, but the basic goodness of the Mustang shape was retained, along with the very best Shelby upgrades, creating a Pro-Touring fastback that has to be seen to be believed. Built by the guys at Pro Touring Super Cars (a division of Speed, Inc.), this was a cost-no-object car from the beginning. Speed, Inc. specializes in putting late model power into vintage muscle, and bringing the latest technology to bear on the cars of the past. What better way to do that than build a Shelby GT500 tribute with one of Ford’s most potent late-model powertrains? Read more!
