This is the Shelby GT500CR and it has nearly 800hp
It's the world's first carbon-fibre 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang
Do you know about Classic recreation? No? Then where have you been, my friend. Oklahoma-based Mustang builder Classic Recreations is upping the restomodding game. Teased a few months ago, the 'Stang builder's latest creation is here.
This is the Shelby GT500CR and it's the world's first carbon-fibre 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang. That carbon-fibre bodywork comes from SpeedKore Performance Group - the folks responsible for Iron Man's 1974 BMW 3.0 CS and other wonders like the carbon-fibre bodied Dodge Charger. It takes the carbon wizards Speedkore between 12 to 18 months to build the body of this 'Stang.
Powered by a supercharged "Coyote" 5.0-liter V-8, this car has 770 horsepower on offer. The GT500CR also features an advanced multi-link race car inspired suspension and original Shelby performance parts.
Step inside and you will find an interior that will take you straight back to the 60s with stuff like a wood-grain aluminum steering wheel and 1967 Door Panels. Don't think this is old because inside you will find handmade digital speakers and amplifiers.
Only 24 of these lovely Mustangs will be made and each one will be custom built to "exact specifications of each buyer". How much it costs? Around $285,000. Ouch.
