Now I find myself looking at the video and photos about every 1/2 hour :yahoo:
It doesn't seem right deep down, :confused:

I have always recycled my cans and used the extra cash as play money towards my hobbies. At today's aluminum prices, this car is worth about 10 million 12 oz beer cans.

Shall we get started??!! :beerchug: :beerchug: :beerchug: :hysterical:

I think it is a great move.

Well done to the team at Shelby, Amy et all !!!

I think shelby need to get some performance cars competing on the track and this is a just a start.

Its all about building on the brand. Shelby have a superb package with the Super Snake and they are
maxing out the value of the work done on the Kenne bell super charger as well.

I love the SGT's as much as my car, i would really love to have the extra cash to have a SGT
in my garage more as a daily driver. I also hope one day Shelby bring out the GT 350, it makes
sense with where the industry is heading.

But lets get these cars out on the track, back to the roots of the shelby legacy.
I took my car out last week to the track nd had some fun, got another session next week and the
Mustang Club Victoria Drag races in 4 weeks, looking forward to letting her rip.

This is what you are supposed to do with these cars, Drive them and enjoy them.

Price is a out of my league, but i congradulate shelby for making the move on the Prudhomme.

The LAST Photo in the Article, shows Two Guys putting the Front End on. The Hood and the Fenders are Molded together. Is that how the actual Production Models will be?


I believe the article said it would have a tilt front end, and it looks different from the standard GT500 front, so I'm bettin it will be...
Freedom exists because there are men and women willing to do terrible things to those who would threaten it.

It is the Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen who salute the flag, who serve beneath the flag, and who's coffins are draped by the flag, that allow the protester to burn the flag.

I'm not a Shelby guy, I'm not a Mustang guy, I'm not a Camaro or Chevy guy, and I'm not a Dodge guy. I'm a car guy. I don't care what the fender says, if it looks cool, is fast and fun to drive, It can be called a Poo-master 1000 for all I care. I'll still like it.

Jeeze! a 100,000 grand? Your paying thru the nose for the limited edition. There's no engine mods to this other than the bug catcher, To get 800hp all you need is to step down to a 2 3/4 pulley and run 105 unleaded, 15 bucks a gallon too.

It's quite obvious that it's easier to make a quick buck off the same people willing to drop $30K+ on an SS upfit in the first place, than it is pandering to the people that wouldn't spend $40K on the entire car (assuming anyone buys into this package).
They might make as much money with these 100 drag packages and the 427's than they did selling thousands of SGT's, IMO.

I agree with your opinion of SAI's business model, for the most part. I don't agree that offering an upfit for the SGT doesn't make good, long term business sense. Their offerings don't seem very diversified these days. With this thing's announcement, the SGTR's recent debut, the 427 and so on, there is a very clear pattern of extremely expensive Mustang "packages" being offered at extremely limited runs (with very little meat added to the ponies, IMO). $$$ for low #'s. That's it. Is that sustainable?

Ken



Guys, we will have a new upfit package for all 4.6 mustangs soon. everything takes time, we have to plan and build cars at the same time. This Prudhomme car is a real upgrade, a complete upgrade to the gt500. The hood tilts forward and it is street legal. it can be raced or driven on the streets. If you haven't seen the DP edition in person, you can't really comment, we redid that whole body.

We do have a SC upgrade for the SGT, and we will offer a new kit shortly. This prudhomme car is very limited, we do cars like this to show what Shelby can do. All Shelby's are great, I drive a SGT-C daily. We also need to more accross the board, and that is why we added the limited to 37 track gt-R.

I like the concept of the car but think the three port intake, made to look like the dragster or funny car injector intake, looks funky and just doesn't seem to fit the cars design lines. Anyone else out here feel the same about that part of the car? I am happy though that they have given Don his due by putting his name on this car. He was a great driver and is a great team owner and genuine nice guy.
