  10. Check out this video about what happened 48 years ago today: https://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motoramic/june-19-ford-gt40s-sweep-le-mans-1-125520832.html?soc_src=mediacontentstory Still remember the coverage on ABC's Wide World of Sports.
  11. According to Blue Oval modifier Steeda Autosports, which states that "the 2015 Mustang ended up gaining 200-300 pounds in this remake". I was afraid this would happen w/ the added weight of the IRS and the euro-"global"-requirements, along with the fact that the car is not really any smaller (shorter, but wider). http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/01/2015-ford-mustang-weight-gain-300-pounds/

    Of course the only way to improve the 2013 Ford Focus ST was to let Shelby America get their hands on it! As you can see, the little monster doubles as a beast!

    This would be a perfect candidate for a little thing called the GT350 upgrade. With Shelby discontinuing the GT350, someone would be very smart to get their hands on this guy and let Shelby American work their magic on it!

  25. The Steel Stallion Ford Shelby GT500 SVT Cobra Vehicle History & Chronicle of Cultivation This SVT Ford Shelby GT500 Cobra is a mind-and-body experience and a vision to behold – genuine pavement wrinkling hybrid of monstrously terrifying toque coupled with dynamic visual acoustics/aesthetics. It was a passionate project I undertook with unyielding attention to detail last year after purchasing the vehicle in impeccable museum-like condition from a surgeon who obviously obsessed over the vehicle’s maintenance just as much as I would. The ultimate outcome: An amazing machine known as The Steel Stallion (due to its world-first 3M Brushed-Steel wrap. I spoke directly with a 3M Executive at the 2012 SEMA SHOW in Las Vegas, he verified this was the first GT500 with a full brushed metal wrap). Original paint color which is pristine, is tungsten, so the vinyl matches very closely - however I even opted for the doorjambs to be wrapped – even the trunk (which is signed and dated by Henry Ford III) sills are wrapped. Application was professionally applied by an acclaimed 3M Certified & Preferred company that wrapped the first domestic tinted-chrome Lamborghini in the USA This Shelby GT500 is a breathtaking example of what is possible with knowledgeable “Cobra Curating” by relying on only renowned engineers and manufacturers. Nothing was left to chance/no corners cut. In fact, through this Cobra’s creation I went through great lengths to personally observe and inspect each phase and step of the workmanship (even traveling with the vehicle out of state during transportation, taking time off work and having it transported back home in a secure covered trailer). As soon as it arrived back to Ohio this past winter, it was put into storage - so as much as it pains me to say it, this monument of muscle has been painstakingly brought into existence for whomever ends up lucky enough to purchase her. The specifics of this GT500 Shelby are frankly too numerous to enumerate one-by-one. Everything from a performance upgrade to aesthetics has been given careful contemplation and expert execution (eventuating in an a 600ft/lb beautiful beast that drives blissfully until you stomp the pedal). The list below is in no way meant to serve as an exhaustive list of all the modifications that have been performed to enhance this stunning Shelby, but they include... • World's top-rated radar detector from Escort (9500ix) hardwired and mounted with a special rotating bracket to the rear-view mirror (very stealthy) • Touch-screen brand new Navigation system w/Bluetooth stream music/hands-free calling/satellite-radio/DVD player that can be operated while driving • Custom-fabricated blinding brand new HID head & fog-lights (a very rare feature that cannot be opted for from Ford during this model-year series) • Total body conversion echoing the legendary Eleanor Shelby w/ a unique and aggressive modern twist • Band new sequential LED taillights that have been wrapped in 3M black brushed-steel to perfectly compliment the visual orchestration • Super Snake/Shelby-KR hood with functional heat extraction vents with black anodized horizontal-billet inserts to match the new front grilles • FordGT functional supercar push-start • Forged 3-piece 20s designed exclusively w/Lexani engineers from scratch (blanks) according to specific spec-measurements to fit the newly painted Brembo brakes • Brand new Nitto track-ready fresh rubber all around • FRPP suspension spring upgrade offering more confident and tight cornering as well as a flawless flush fitment around the wheel setup • Stainless side-exhaust system fully complete from the engine-block-back w/best-of-best Kooks headers mated to straight pipes that are catted and have resonator-chambers (a symphony!) • Carbon Fiber 127mm JLT CAI • Carbon Fiber APR downforce splitter • AND ON AND ON... Even the small nuances such as the window tint along with the other media/electronic enhancements were installed by an award winning technician who was awarded and selected by Kenwood themselves as a nationally ranked installation expert and trainer (the tint for example was installed and re-installed three times, and it is under a fully transferable warranty, as I wanted to ensure absolute perfection). Other additions like the complete upper/lower black horizontal grille assembly inserts and the APR genuine carbon fiber down-force splitter were added after weeks of contemplation and visualizing, and ended up being picture-perfect to add mind-blowing aggressiveness to the front end (as if the Cobra didn’t have enough)! With the factory Premium Interior Option selected offering the hand-stitched leather dash and concise booming sound from the Shaker system boosted with a 12’’ custom-installed Alpine sub-woofer, as good as the music sounds you'll be reluctant to ever use the Navigation/DVD/MP3/Satellite-Radio once you hear the hauntingly infectious roaring sound of this hellacious horse's exhaust note! I had planned on keeping this stunning Shelby forever, passing it onto a child and making it a legacy “heirloom” in the family (which is why such compulsive care was taken during its cultivation), but a forthcoming business expansion/re-investment have prompted me to rethink this asset. It goes without saying: This is an immaculate smoke-free car and has NEVER been raced, abused, or damaged in any fathomable way – she has only been pampered since she was manufactured with a clear title. Contemplate the push of that bright red start button and feeling the electric throbbing sensation as an entire stampeding stable of furious ponies gallops through the open exhaust pipes echoing off your garage walls from the side of the vehicle and directly into your ears (and your heart)! • Dyno-verified at 600ft/lbs at the wheels • She is a story-free, provocatively beautiful incomparable Shelby on steroids • Kelly Blue Book value w/exact factory specs & mileage (without the $18,000+ in documented parts/labor costs inflated into the price): $36,500 or WELL OVER $50,00 in verifiable parts/labor -- asking $44,500 (negotiable) Note: Original and Ford/SVT factory parts are available as well. I will make them available for purchase to the buyer for the true connoisseur who wants all OEM serial-number stock parts (hood/taillights/exhaust) Absolutely flawless history completely owned free and clear with the title in... my... palm... since I paid cash for her expecting to retain ownership for the rest of my life, sparing NO expense in the process.
