It has been a long time since I have seen a Shelby Mustang that I have wanted as badly as the newly announced Shelby 1000. Taking the best parts of a stock GT, a GT350, and Shelby parts, we get this beast of a track car that's sure to satisfy fans of Shelby.
The Shelby 1000 was unveiled at SEMA and will scrap the stock 5.0 Coyote motor entirely for a 5.2L supercharged V8 (not the GT350 Voodoo). The new engine will feature GT350 cylinder heads and a 4.5L Whipple supercharger, larger radiator, heat exchanger, aluminum cooling tank, and a high capacity oil pan.
You also get a number of upgrades that one might expect on a track focused car, such as a one piece driveshaft, upgraded manual transmission, Shelby exhaust with long tube headers, 1500 HP rated axles, and a fully adjustable coilover suspension kit (which should work very nicely with the IRS of the current Mustang).
The Shelby 1000 will feature a widebody setup with a new front fascia, new hood, new wheel arches, new rear panels, and what appears to be GT350 fenders (or at least something similar). The whole package will run you $169,995 on top of a 2015-2018 Mustang that you must provide. No one ever said Shelby was cheap!
