  3. NEWS FOR Immediate RELEASE SHELBY AMERICAN “REINTRODUCES” 1967 FORD SHELBY GT500 SUPER SNAKE Available through Shelby American, the limited-edition continuation Shelby GT500 Super Snake is the rebirth of a 1967 muscle car legend Production is limited to 10 fastbacks with original Ford VIN Each car will include an original signature by Carroll Shelby and Don McCain Los Angeles – May 17, 2018 – A legend has been reborn as executives with Shelby American, Inc., today reintroduced the 1967 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake muscle car during a press event at Carroll Shelby International in Gardena, California. The 1967 Shelby Super Snake continuation cars will use 1967 donor Mustangs and include a Shelby serial number for the official Shelby registry. Only 10 fastbacks will be built, each with original signatures by Carroll Shelby and Don McCain who spearheaded the program in 1967. “Shelby American’s line up of vehicles today is the most diverse in our 56-year history,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “From high-tech modern muscle to off-road super trucks, track day thrill rides and heritage cars like the continuation 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, we offer something for everyone who wants to be best in class.” Over the last several years, Shelby American has broadened its lineup in response to customer demand. The company introduced the 1968 Shelby Continuation GT500KR earlier this year and now it is returning a legend to the stable. The continuation cars are built to order in Pennsylvania for distribution through Shelby American. “We’re fulfilling the dream of Carroll Shelby and Don McCain,” said Shelby American president Gary Patterson. “Shelby built an engineering study dubbed the ‘Super Snake’ for high-speed tire testing by Goodyear in 1967. When that successful test ended, Shelby American offered it to Mel Burns Ford in So Cal to retail to the public. Former Shelby American employee Don McCain approached Shelby about doing a limited run of cars. They carefully studied the idea but sadly, the timing did not work because the car was too expensive. The program never came to fruition, until now.” Shelby chief engineer Fred Goodell randomly chose a white fastback for transformation in 1967. He first replaced the engine with a lightweight medium riser 427 motor. The race motor was fitted with a host of modifications that was said to increase output to 520 horsepower. Shelby added heavy duty front disc brakes, Detroit Locker rear end, rear traction bars and special Goodyear Thunderbolt tires. The Super Snake sported unique triple stripes and a redesigned grille for improved air cooling. Debuting for the media at Goodyear’s San Angelo, Texas, test track, Shelby personally took the wheel of the Super Snake and was clocked at 170 mph. After turning the car over to Goodell for the 500-mile test, the Shelby Super Snake set a new top speed world record for its class. The Super Snake was an expensive vehicle, which discouraged McCain and Shelby from continuing the program leaving only one built by Shelby American. The one-off prototype changed hands a few times over the years. Most recently, a collector paid over $1.3 million for it. Fifty years later, the company will complete Carroll Shelby’s “unfinished business.” Another 10 of the muscle cars will be offered to enthusiasts worldwide. The Continuation series Shelby GT500 Super Snakes are built from original 1967 Mustangs, with factory VINs and original titles. The donor cars are stripped to bare metal for transformation into the mighty Super Snake. Customers can opt for an original donor period Shelby fastback for transformation into a Super Snake. A race-inspired big block V-8 remains the heart of the car, as the Continuation Shelby Super Snake is powered by a 427ci V-8 from Carroll Shelby Engine Co. making over 550 horsepower. Both aluminum and cast-iron blocks are available, backed by a 4-speed manual transmission. Just like the original, the cars will have disc brakes and the famous triple stripes. Before his passing a few years ago, McCain was deeply involved in the Shelby engine program and promoted the idea of a rebirth of the Super Snake program. He signed ten dash plaques for the cars, as did Carroll Shelby. Patterson and the McCain family introduced the car to the media today and will again to enthusiasts during the Carroll Shelby Tribute event on Saturday, May 19, at Carroll Shelby International in Gardena. The event will include a car show, vendors, autograph session, adult trike races and more. Super Snakes will be built to order and sold through Shelby American. The cars will start at US$249,995.

  4. 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.

  12. SHELBY AMERICAN ANNOUNCES THE RETURN OF THE KING: THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY 1968 SHELBY G.T.500KR Available through Shelby American, the limited-edition continuation Shelby G.T.500KR supplies 1960s era muscle car performance The “new-old” Shelby is a second chance to be The King Production is limited to 10 fastbacks and 10 convertibles Shelby American returns to Barrett-Jackson to introduce commemorative heritage car Las Vegas – January 12, 2018 – Executives with Shelby American, Inc., have announced that the company will offer a limited number of 50th Anniversary 1968 Shelby G.T.500KR “King of the Road” continuation muscle cars. The KRs will use 1960s era Mustang donor cars and include a Shelby serial number for documentation in the official Shelby registry. Powered by big block motors, the Shelbys will be available in fastback and convertible body styles. The car will debut at the Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson Auction from Jan. 12-21, with an official introduction event on Jan. 20. “Carroll Shelby was truly ‘the king of the road’ during the 1960s,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “His racing team dominated just about every form of motorsports and his cars ruled the road. As the 1968 Shelby G.T.500KR is often considered the ultimate symbol of that era, Shelby American will offer a handful of continuation KRs to honor both the man and what many call the golden age of the American muscle car.” Over the last several years, Shelby American has broadened its lineup, adding new vehicles in direct response to customer demand. With the introduction of the 1968 Shelby Continuation G.T.500KR, Shelby American is again taking a glance back, while making another historic step forward. “Shelby American has the most diverse vehicle lineup of any automaker in the world,” said Shelby American president Gary Patterson. “An enthusiast can buy a modern muscle truck, off-road capable pickup or a sports car based on the current generation Ford Mustang. We also offer three versions of the historic Cobra, a GT40 continuation and a genuine Shelby Cobra Daytona fastback. Now you can purchase a ‘new’ 1968 Shelby G.T.500KR through Shelby American. All these vehicles offer a thrilling driving experience, each in their own unique way.” Shelby American president Gary Patterson will conduct a media and enthusiast introduction of the 1968 Shelby Continuation G.T.500KR on Saturday, January 20 in the Shelby American booth at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction at 1:00 p.m. It is the same location where the company introduced commemorative edition Shelby Cobras in 2012 and 2015. Those cars were instant collectibles, selling out in record time. Shelby’s “King of the Road” G.T.500KR represented the apogee of horsepower and torque in a Ford platform as the muscle car era began to close. The “King of the Road” connected a cast iron version of Ford’s FE big block 428 c.i.d. engine with the choice of a manual or automatic transmission. The Shelby also featured high performance brakes and suspension, as well as a host of special styling touches inside and out. The 1968 Shelby Continuation G.T.500KR, available in both fastback and convertible body styles, will pack even more big-block punch. It will be sold with a 427cubic inch engine from Carroll Shelby Engine Co. in either aluminum or cast iron. The Shelby can be equipped with either a manual or automatic transmission. Drivetrains will be installed in 1968 Mustang donor cars, with factory VINs intact. Shelby spec suspensions and brakes will be included. Any standard Shelby colors from 1968 can be chosen as the cars will be built to order. Like the 50th anniversary edition Shelby Cobras, anniversary badges will be added to the cars. The handful of commemorative KRs, limited to 10 fastbacks and 10 convertibles, will be sold through Shelby American. Each will be documented in the Shelby Registry. The cars will start at US$249,995. “The 1968 Shelby G.T.500KR was aggressive and visceral,” said Patterson. “For those who can remember it when the KR was introduced, or younger enthusiasts hoping to create their own memories, this new King of the Road represents a rare second chance to own a very special muscle car built just for them. This car represents a celebration of our roots, along with a validation of our future. There’s never been a better time to be a Shelby fan.” Additional information about the 50th Anniversary 1968 Shelby G.T.500KR can be found at www.shelby.com or by calling (702) 942-7325.

  13. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CARROLL SHELBY’S 1964 “SECRET WEAPON” SHELBY COBRA DAYTONA COUPE TO RETURN IN LIMITED PRODUCTION SERIES VIEW THE PHOTO GALLERY LAS VEGAS – August 18, 2017 – Shelby American will finish the “secret weapon” program that Carroll Shelby envisioned for the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans with a limited production series of big block Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupes. Six aluminum cars will be built to Shelby’s specifications for the original race car. The first in the series of the limited production build (CSX2603) will be introduced to the public during Monterey Collector Car Week in mid-August. “We’re taking care of some ‘unfinished business’ for Carroll Shelby,” said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American. “It was sometimes called the ‘car that never was’ because a lone big block Daytona prototype was built but never raced. We plan to complete this amazing program by offering six turn-key 427 powered Daytona Coupe racecars, which is the same number as the small block versions built in the 1960s.” In 1964, Carroll Shelby asked renowned fabricator John Ohlsen to lengthen the chassis of one of the six Daytona Coupes (CSX2286) to replace the 289 c.i.d. Ford engine with a NASCAR inspired big block. The experimental racecar was supposed to be Shelby’s “secret weapon” for the 1964 Le Mans race. One of the development drivers for the big block car was Bob Bondurant. He stated that the Cobra’s tremendous torque allowed him to burn rubber and get sideways in any gear. He noted that the Shelby “went like stink” and speculated that it could have topped 200 miles per hour at Le Mans. Weighing about 2,200 pounds with world class aerodynamics and the power of a big block, the car had tremendous performance potential. However, destiny intervened. The truck carrying CSX2286 to Le Mans was involved in an accident that damaged the Shelby too much to be repaired in time for the race. It never ran a lap in anger with the 427 and was returned to small block configuration by Shelby American. Dan Gurney and Allen Grant drove CSX2286 at Le Mans with the 289 engine the next year, but the Cobra did not finish the race. The continuation big block Daytona Coupes follow the same specs as the Ohlsen modified racecar. All Daytona Coupes will feature an aluminum body that can be painted in any race livery. Each continuation Coupe will feature a 3-inch lengthened chassis and hood to accept a powerful aluminum 427 medium-riser big block motor, which will be supplied by the Shelby Engine Company. The powerful 550+ horsepower engine will be mated to a period-correct 4-speed manual transmission. Each will be assigned a Shelby CSX2000 series serial number for documentation in the official Shelby Registry. “This is an incredible opportunity to own a very rare collectible Shelby heritage race car,” said Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. “Like the six small block cars built in the 1960s, these 427 powered Daytona Coupes will be a lasting tribute to another innovative Shelby racecar that would have caught the racing world off guard. These Coupes will be every bit as much a ‘secret weapon’ as Carroll had hoped for in 1964.” CSX2603 will debut in polished aluminum bearing the number “4” and sporting a pair of white stripes with a single blue between them. This is the number and stripe scheme that CSX2286 would have worn for the 1964 Le Mans. It will be displayed at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion located at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca from August 18-20, 2017.

  14. NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE WIDE BODY ROAD RACING 2017 SHELBY SUPER SNAKE CONCEPT CAR UNVEILED BY SHELBY AMERICAN IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA • Wide body concept introduced for first time on newest generation Ford Mustang platform • Road course focused package includes new suspension and brake options to maximize the wider track of the car • First concept vehicle introduced by Shelby American in over a decade LAS VEGAS – May 18, 2017 – Shelby American, Inc., today introduced its 2017 Shelby Super Snake wide body study, the first factory concept vehicle in over ten years, to the media at Carroll Shelby International in Southern California. The concept includes new suspension, brake, tire and wheel options designed to maximize the car’s wider track for road racing. “Shelby American has been pushing the performance envelope since 1962,” said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American. “The success of our 50th Anniversary Shelby Super Snake, Shelby F-150 and Shelby Cobra programs have fueled a desire to stretch our team in new ways. The wide body Shelby Super Snake concept vehicle is a glimpse at our next generation track focused car, as well as a demonstration of Shelby American’s vitality.” The concept car will also be unveiled to the public at the 5th Annual Carroll Shelby Tribute and Car Show on May 20, 2017, in the same location where it was introduced to the media. It will be displayed along with the recently announced pre-title Shelby F-150 Super Snake truck. “Shelby American’s wide body option for the previous generation Super Snake was very popular because it put more rubber under the car to improve traction for drag racing,” said Gary Patterson, Shelby American President. “The current Shelby Super Snake emphasizes handling much more than the last model, which required a new approach with this concept. Instead of being optimized for straight line performance, the Super Snake wide body concept provides more grip on all four corners. It was designed to give drivers a serious competitive edge on the road course.” The wide body concept began with the popular 50th Anniversary Shelby Super Snake. Powered by a supercharged Ford 5.0L V8 engine, Shelby American added a fully adjustable coil over suspension system, bigger brakes, hardened wheel studs, stronger spindles and hubs, as well as a more aggressive wheel and tire package to put all 750 horsepower to the road. “Adding approximately four inches to the car’s rear track and two and half to the front, opened up new opportunities to maximize handling,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief Test Driver. “The fully adjustable coil over suspension and the enormous Brembo braking system, along with wider wheels and tires significantly change the car’s driving dynamics. This provides more grip for later braking and earlier acceleration out of corners. It will deliver more communication to the driver and better absorb track imperfections. The wide body Super Snake concept is every road racer’s dream.” The “Lightning Blue” Shelby Super Snake concept includes: Performance equipment • Shelby spec track suspension • Rear lower control arms • Performance spindle & control arms • Brembo Shelby brake system with 16” rotors and six piston calipers in the front 14” rotors and four piston calipers in the rear Body components • Front fenders with vents • Rear quarter panels • Rocker styling kit • 12.5” x 20” rear and 11” x 20” front wheels shod with Michelin performance tires • Hardened extended wheel lugs The wide body Shelby Super Snake was designed and built at Shelby American’s facility in Las Vegas. If the wide body concept goes into production, it will be available worldwide with the package registered in the official Shelby Registry.

  15. NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE LIGHTNING STRIKES AGAIN AS SHELBY AMERICAN UNVEILS SHELBY F-150 SUPER SNAKE STREET TRUCK • New Shelby F-150 Super Snake marks the return of the Shelby muscle truck • Only 150 total 2017 Shelby F-150 Super Snakes will be available at select Ford dealers • MSRP for the muscle truck, including base vehicle starts at $96,880 • Supercharged truck churns out 750 tire-shredding horsepower LAS VEGAS – May 18, 2017 – Shelby American, Inc., today unveiled the all-new Shelby F-150 Super Snake truck at the headquarters of Carroll Shelby International in Southern California. Marking the return of the Shelby muscle truck, only 150 total of the street oriented vehicles will be offered by select Ford dealers for the 2017 model year. “Carroll Shelby was an early pioneer in high performance street trucks, beginning with his first production version almost 30 years ago,” said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American. “With the tremendous demand for our off-road focused Shelby F-150, fans of the classic Ford Lightning and our 2009 Shelby F-150 Super Snake have clamored for a new generation muscle truck from Shelby. Working closely with Ford Motor Company, Tuscany and other partners, we’re going to offer a limited run of super trucks designed specifically for street duty.” The Shelby F-150 Super Snake will be available in two-wheel and four-wheel drive configurations starting at an MSRP of $96,880. “The ‘Shelby Super Snake’ badge carries tremendous prestige because every vehicle that wears it represents the pinnacle of performance,” said Gary Patterson, Shelby American President. “Our new Shelby F-150 Super Snake is certainly worthy of the name. From the sharp handling suspension to the thundering 750 horses and pure American styling, it’s a remarkable vehicle. One of our goals was to offer the truck in limited numbers to preserve exclusivity and potential collectability.” Based on the world-class Ford F-150, Shelby American collaborated with partners like Ford Performance and Borla to transform it into a Super Snake. “This is simply an amazing truck to drive,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief Test Driver. “Lessons learned building the Ford Mustang-based Shelby Super Snake muscle car and the Shelby F-150 were applied to create this incredible street truck. True to Carroll Shelby’s philosophy, it has more power, more sound, more styling and more handling prowess. From Detroit to Dubai and Dusseldorf, this is the ultimate expression of a high performance truck available through a dealer.” Using the Super Snake blueprint for success, the team sharpened the handling of the award-winning Ford F-150’s independent suspension. Under the hood, the F-150 Super Snake is powered by Ford’s iconic 5.0L V8 engine with a supercharger to pump out over 750 horsepower. The result is a well-engineered truck with astonishing capabilities. The Shelby F-150 Super Snake wears unique Shelby styling that enhances the lines of the handsome truck. It features a new hood, rockers, spoilers, grills, rear bumper panel and tonneau cover. Additional styling cues also include Shelby Super Snake stripes and badges. Inside, the theme continues across the seats, dash and floor. The Shelby F-150 Super Snake is available in six Ford factory colors and comes with a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty. Each vehicle is assigned a genuine Shelby serial number that is documented in the official Shelby Registry. For more information about the all-new Shelby F-150 Super Snake, visit www.Shelby.com.
