This month at the Festival, we’re celebrating an American automotive icon! Read on for the full rundown of Series 32.

 

GT500

 

 

In 1965, Carroll Shelby put the Le Mans GT40 engine inside of a Mustang to create the Cobra GT350, in order to compete at the track. Fast forward to today, and we’re still feeling Shelby’s influence on the Mustang with the GT500.

 

It has 760hp stock via a supercharged aluminum block 5.2L V8, making it the most powerful stock Ford in history. It sports a dual clutch that shifts faster than any manual. And it’s balanced to take corners unlike any Mustang before it.

 

The result of all of this is unmatched speed and unmistakable Mustang style and power.

 

Continue the Shelby legacy with the GT500, available by completing the “Flex Your Muscle” seasonal championship.

 

Shelby 1000

 

 

The GT500 might be the most powerful Ford when stock, but the Shelby 1000 is anything but stock. The 1000 takes a base GT500 and makes improvements to the handling, horsepower and braking, making it a track machine capable of 1000 horsepower thanks to a complete refit of the 5.4L V8, an overhaul of the exhaust and supercharger, and what has been described as some “Shelby magic” that puts the 1000 over 200 mph at top speed.

 

The 1000 got a limited run, and each model was numbered. A completed model comes out to around $200,000, and includes a widebody kit, new racing suspension, added cooling to make up for those 1000 horses, and refitted chassis connectors, to keep the whole thing in one piece.

 

Get your hands on the Shelby 1000 by completing the Seasonal Championship “Shelby Coming Round the Mountain.”
