Shelby announced a brand new Shelby Mustang limited-edition will be unveiled on February 5 on the fund-raiser dinner for the museum National Hot Rod Association museum. The auto will be a 'R Model' track-only to commemorating SCCA Championship Jerry Titus’ 1965 with Shelby GT-350R the original.
'In 1965, my team built 37 small block ’R Model’ race-only versions of the Shelby GT350 Mustang that kicked tails on circuits worldwide' affirmed Carroll Shelby. 'Working with Ford Racing, we’re going to build a new track day ’R Model’ version of the Ford Shelby GT. It’ll be lots of fun to drive and ready to rip up the pavement right out of the box'.
'From the competition brakes to the straight pipes, this fantastic car is worthy of the ’R Model’ designation' stated Amy Boylan, the President of Shelby Automobiles. 'Working closely with Ford Racing, we engineered a car with the balanced handling, serious power and spectacular brakes that serious enthusiasts want. And just like the car driven by Jerry Titus in 1965, this Ford Shelby GT ’R Model’ showcases our expertise in an affordable, turnkey package'.
'The Shelby name has stood for performance since Carroll began building cars for the track in 1962' added Brian Wolfe, the director of Ford North America Motorsports. 'Track Day enthusiasts have been asking for a contemporary Shelby and Ford Track Car for some time, so we at Ford Racing are pleased to team up with Shelby Automobiles to build a handful of very special cars. We look forward to watching them roar past Camaros and Challengers when they show up at the track'.
