SHELBY AMERICAN BRINGS WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL STREET PRODUCTION MUSCLE
CAR BACK TO THE NEW YORK AUTO SHOW
LAS VEGAS ? March 22, 2013 ? Shelby American, a wholly owned
subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., (CSBI.PK), will
introduce the 2013 version of the most powerful production, street
legal muscle car in the world on March 28, 2013, at the New York
International Auto Show. The company will have on display its 2013
Shelby 1000 S/C version with 1,200 horsepower, which is based on the
Ford Shelby GT500. Beginning with Ford's new massive 5.8L V8 power
plant, the 2013 Shelby 1000 puts unprecedented horsepower to the
pavement, while running on pump gas.
"The 2012 Shelby 1000 was launched to great acclaim at the New
York Auto Show last year to celebrate our 50th anniversary," said
John Luft, president of Shelby American. "We're bringing back the
Shelby 1000 to New York, but with Ford's new 2013 Shelby GT500 as the
base car. With its new engine, launch control, adjustable suspension
and other new enhancements, we've created a car with even more
capabilities. The 2013 Shelby 1000 incorporates everything we've
learned over five decades of creating high-performance
vehicles."
While the stock 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 offers 662 HP, Shelby American
strips the 5.8 liter engine down to the block, strengthens the
internals and then cranks up the power. Combining a finely tuned
adjustable suspension with a performance cooling package, big brakes
and serious horsepower, the Shelby can outperform exotics costing
three-to-four times more.
"The 2013 Shelby 1000 is the most powerful production muscle car
on the market," said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American's test
driver. "But this car cannot be defined by just its amazing
power. The steering provides wonderful feedback and the car tracks
beautifully, giving it an athletic feel. It attacks corners, ripping
through them with minimal body roll and tremendous grip. Yet the
Shelby 1000 can be so docile that you can cruise it down the streets
of Manhattan."
The 2013 Shelby 1000 S/C track version runs on pump gas and is rated
at 1,200 HP. The post-title package starts at $154,995, not including
the base GT500. A limited production of 100 2013 Shelby 1000's will be
built and each will be numbered and documented in the official Shelby
Registry.
Shelby American will also unveil another vehicle at the New York
International Auto Show. Like the Shelby Focus ST, it will not be Ford
Mustang based.
Shelby American is now accepting orders for the limited edition 2013
Shelby 1000. Those interested in reserving a car should contact the
