    NEWS FOR Immediate RELEASE SHELBY AMERICAN TO OFFER LIMITED NUMBER OF NEW FORD-POWERED SERIES 2 EXOTIC SPORTS CARS Only 4 total hand-built sports cars will be built annually for enthusiasts worldwide The Shelby Series 2 is a major evolution of the famed 1999 sports car Series 2 is engineered for Ford V8 power with other customer installed options available Shelby will sell the car in component form; it can be finished by Wingard Motorsports GARDENA, Calif. – May 17, 2018 – Nineteen years after the Shelby Series 1 was introduced, Shelby American, Inc., has reentered the modern sports car arena with the sizzling new Shelby Series 2 roadster. Beginning in June 2018, four of the handcrafted, limited edition sports cars will be available per year as a component roller configured for the Carroll Shelby Engine Company 427 aluminum FE big block or Windsor small block coupled to a custom designed ZF 5 speed transaxle. “Carroll Shelby’s first ‘clean sheet’ car, was the Shelby Series 1,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “Carroll always intended for that innovative chassis to be the first in a line of modern sports cars, which is why he called it the Series 1. The new Shelby Series 2 is the evolution of that minimalist car, offering breathtaking performance in a modern two seat roadster.” The Series 2 story began with a dream in the 1990s. Carroll Shelby had built many vehicles in partnership with several companies based on a chassis or design from those carmakers. Around 1996, he decided to produce a car that was pure Shelby. Though it was a fresh design, the Shelby Series 1’s front engine, rear wheel drive layout was fairly traditional. The styling was lauded for being both sporty and aggressively handsome because it melded “big roadster” proportions with a variety of classic cues. Crafted of lightweight composite materials, the Shelby Series 1 only weighed about 2850 pounds, including its well-appointed leather trimmed interior, top and air conditioning. The all-aluminum monocoque chassis was then, and is still, one of the stiffest chassis in the world, with the engine mounted aft of the front suspension for a nearly perfect 49/51 weight balance. The naturally aspirated Aurora 4.0-liter DOHC V-8 engine was rated at 320 horsepower connected to a rear mounted 5-speed manual transaxle; a supercharged option increased horsepower to about 460. A total of 249 were built. The new Shelby Series 2 emerged through a unique agreement between Shelby and Wingard Motorsports to create a handful of cars with the choice of an aluminum, carbon fiber or one of the first titanium car bodies. Wingard can finish out the roller for customers, too. “Several years ago, Wingard Motorsports purchased the remaining Shelby Series 1 chassis and parts,” said Gary Patterson, Shelby American President. “Working with Shelby, founder Bob Wingard revised the car to reduce weight by maximizing the integration of billeted aluminum and carbon fiber components. He further refined the suspension, braking and drivetrain to allow an increase of more than twice the horsepower of the original car. The Series 2 is now more than 12% lighter and will support over 800 horsepower.” The Shelby Series 2 is built on the original aluminum honeycomb monocoque frames with next generation hardware. It uses an inboard cantilevered suspension design for the front and rear, which minimizes the sprung wheel weight. Penske Shocks fine-tuned the suspension at their facility in Charlotte. The car has a big brake system with 6-piston calipers on all corners and custom 19” mono block performance wheels with Pilot Cup 2 tires. Standard drivetrain configuration is for a 5 speed ZF transaxle torque tube coupled to a multi-disc clutch system mated to a Carroll Shelby Engine Company 427 FE or 427 Windsor motor. Other engine options can be supported, as well as multi-point seat belts and 4 or 6 point roll bars. However, the Shelby Series 2 will not come with cupholders. Each commissioned Series 2 will be a unique and “one-of-one.” Custom interiors designed to accommodate most drivers with an incredible six inches of peddle adjustment will include carbon fiber Carroll Shelby signature seats. Aluminum bodies will be available in a brushed, polished or painted finish with the Shelby signature racing stripes. “While the Shelby Series 2 is based on the first-generation car, it’s a significant leap forward,” said Patterson. “It blends old school craftmanship and current technology, pushing the roadster into super car territory. It is the perfect car for collectors and enthusiasts globally who want the ultimate in exclusivity and to be completely engaged with the driving experience.” The Shelby Series 2 includes a one-year warranty for parts and labor, as well as painted finishes. Shelby will offer a weekend training session at Spring Mountain Raceway near Las Vegas to new owners who want to maximize their driving enjoyment. Each car will be built to order and bear a Shelby American CSX5500 series serial number that will be recorded in the official Shelby American Registry. For more information, visit www.Shelby.com.

    It's 4 per year. It doesn't say how many years. It is not a GT350R engine (Ford doesn't sell it without a GT350(R) wrapped around it), it is the Shelby Engine Company 427 (alloy block). It won't have cupholders. Note the announcement didn't list a price. It also doesn't say if it is street legal. All of these cars are for toy owners with deep pocket books.

    Stopping supply does not automatically affect demand. If you use the GTH as an example , in order to create “demand” Hertz has steadily lowered the price of the 2016 GTH. $150k, ……$80K,………..$75k, ……..$54k, ……..$49.9k,……$44.9k, and now $42.5K……..The amount of supply has had little to no impact because the majority of consumers still did not or do not see a fair value level even at $44.9k. Otherwise Hertz would not have now again dropped the price on about 2 dozen of them to $42.5k. When supply and demand meet an equilibrium these cars will sell at a much better pace. If they were selling at a rate Hertz thought was acceptable they would not keep dropping the price in an attempt to generate demand. I am not bashing the 2016 GTH, just showing an example of some basic economics.

    It’s quite an interesting change from my other three older S-197’s, that’s for sure. It’s funny, I made an observation yesterday that I’d not really noticed before. When backing out of my driveway with the wheel cramped all the way to the stops, to avoid dragging the splitter on the rolled curb, the car is so incredibly rigid that it feels like one of the rear wheels literally lifts off the ground I’ve only ever witnessed 911’s do this. This car is so far advanced over its predecessor.

    Mustangcollector.....Wow that paint is just amazing. The detail is outstanding for this price point. Still looking at all your diecast you posted but had to comment on this right away. Didn’t even know this model existed until now. I think from your pictures this might be a little better paint quality then the Ford GT 40’s 1:18 scale exoto models. I looked on ebay for the price info. Paint technology has come a long way on there resin models. I had a 1970 Shelby GT500. It was red and the owner replaced the gold stripes with white stripes back in 1989. It had white interior also just like your model except it had black hood stripes being it was a 1970. I see a lot of red 69/70 Shelby’s now with white stripes rather then gold. Nice model you have there. Thanks for posting look forward to seeing more. Your pictures really came out great also. edit: ...Your 2008 Shelby GT500 KR black with black ghosts stripes is.... one of my all time favorite Shelby’s Slow lane

    I used AED and they were awesome. The two owners were very organized, you could eat off the floor in the shop, they gave me a lot of great advice for other options I wanted to add (I also did shifter, one piece driveshaft, clutch and suspension) and the work was perfect. They were busy, they get calls and emails all day long with questions so was a little hard to initially get their attention but once they knew I was serious it was all good. Install went perfect and everything looks OEM. If you're in NorCal this is the place to go.

    Time to bring this set of posts full circle since I started off with the 1968 GT California Special Mustang...here is AutoArt’s 2007 Mustang California Special. This is another diecast car that I had to search for years to get a good one at a reasonable price since I didn’t buy it new. The engine detail on the AutoArt cars is pretty good and the paint is nice. The packaging boxes on AA has always been flimsy compared to others IMO. I had a 2012 GT/CS and I absolutely loved the styling and performance. In the end I traded it for my 2008 GT500KR...well played I think.

    As Falcon pointed out earlier with his post of his first new car...the 1982 Mustang 5.0, there are virtually NO examples in either plastic models or diecast of the 1980s Mustangs. So, when GMP started producing some versions of these beauties I had to have them. One of the rarest of these is the 1985 Mustang 5.0 “Twister Special” in Jalapena Red. The quality on the GMP cars is pretty good, and though these go for a pretty penny I was able to pick one up several years ago for what I consider to be a decent price. Highly recommended if you’re in the market for 1980s diecast Mustangs...you’ll have to wait a LONG time to get the 1980s Shelby Mustangs.

    Let’s switch gears a little bit...here is a 1:16 Ertl AMT plastic kit of a 1964 1/2 Mustang Hardtop that I hand built and painted more than 25 years ago. The contrast in colors between the painted parts in the engine compartment, the chassis, and the interior look decent I believe. I think the it turned out pretty well, and it is interesting to note that back then I didn’t use any high gloss spray on my models...this is only the original Testors candy red paint.

    As we all know, back in the early 1990s Ertl was the mass producer of diecast cars. And, though their quality and detail certainly wasn’t top of the line way back then they manufactured a huge variety of mustangs and Shelbys virtually every style and paint scheme. I have a lot of 1969 cars, but this particular 1969 Shelby GT500 is candy apple red with bright white stripes and white interior took me many, many years to find in MIB condition. It was worth the hunt and it fits in very nicely with the other red cars!

    So, I decided I really wanted the 350r but after I looked closely, I realized like all of you probably know you have to order them, the dealer has to have an allocAtion and they are going to charge you 10k over or more. And unfortunately it was out of my price range. No worries, I'll just wait, keep my eyes open, try to save up a little. The next day, no lie, car gurus, I see this 350r advertised as a 350. It was a trade in to a dodge dealer. So its 11am. I tell my boss I gotta go, jump in my 2015gt and head for a dodge dealer. Bottom line, black, black racing stripe with read accent, 2017, 2600 miles, 57.9k. To hours later I'm driving home in my 350r...crazy... They didn't know what it was or how to price it

    My favorite Shelby’s are the 06,07,08 models. The blue really pops on your car Mongoose. Love your home and it looks like you have two garages with some land to stretch out in...that’s cool. Need it for all your toys. Who shovels all the snow on your long driveway ? Here are a few pictures of the 2018 mustang GT 1:25 scale that revell puts out $15 . It’s snaps together and got it for our grandkids. Not diecast but it’s the only 2018 on the market ( except for the little one that Chris showed ) They made a mistake and the panel above the front spoiler is black like mine. But I painted it black. That panel is a snap on and they could not do both colors. That’s cool I like it.

    Just read the other post and saw you are 20.The fact that you rescued a SGT and if you are into it right it can be a car you can keep and enjoy for a long time.I wish l would have kept my 70SS Chevelle after it was wrecked,it was repairable but l lacked the knowledge and patience at the time. Sounds like you are keeping the car for the long haul so IMO the salvage title is not really a big deal unless you plan to sell.

    Thanks Goose! It is indeed. The car will be two years old in June. I really haven’t driven it a whole lot. At first I was scared about blowing the oil hose that’s on recall. Then I figured, screw it! So just since I drove her over from California here to my place in Az. did I really begin to have fun with it! Changed the oil myself and started driving it! June 2, 2016

    She's gone sold her yesterday and did not loose any money in the deal. I had a wonderful two years in my CS6 and won trophies at all car shows I entered it into except one (that was a Mopar sponsored show....) so people take notice of the CS6. The gentleman who purchased it, is a car collector and he was more than excited to buy it. It took about 6 months to sell and I received a lot of inquiry's but mostly young guys that can't afford to buy a vehicle without financing it. As you know the CS6 (Ford Mustang V6) only blue books for $6K at the most and when you are asking what I was asking you have to have the cash. That will be the case with any modern day Shelby collectible. Word to the wise, if you want to sell your Shelby you must be patient and advertise, advertise, advertise.... Here is the last pic of her sitting in the driveway just before the car shipper picked it up.
