Classic Recreations has just released some preliminary technical details and specifications for the GT 500 CR. All three GT 500 CR models will feature a hand-built 7.0L engine, model specific bodywork, custom paint and hand-stitched upholstery. Every car should be marked with an official Shelby serial number, badges and will be included in the official Shelby Worldwide Registry.
The “Intro” model is powered by a 545hp fuel injected 7.0 L engine, built by Classic Recreations using top-shelf performance parts and Mass Flo digital fuel injection. A 150hp NOS provides extra power. Suspension and power rack and pinion steering modernize the car’s handling, and a 5 speed manual transmission sends the power to the 17×8″ Shelby wheels over front and rear cross drilled Shelby/Baer brakes. Inside some of the extras are a custom stereo, climate control and Carroll Shelby Signature seats, gauges, console, and floormats. The exterior is available in five different color schemes and features authentic Shelby Performance parts, such as lights, emblems and a real Shelby Le Mans racing gas cap.
