New Shelby Terlingua lands

Recommended Posts

Last week my new Shelby Terlingua was delivered, and I could not be more happy with it! This is my second Shelby (other was a '14 GT500 w/ widebody)

 

As the car was unloaded from the carrier, I was blown away. It far surpassed my expectations. The car was breathtaking, and the following pics do it no justice at all.

The gloss black, yellow accents, polished carbon fiber, and real stainless steel give it a awesome look! It just comes together perfectly.

 

The metal of badges, grill, and hood vents are small details but really present a extremely high quality hand crafted ascetic. And the brakes look like giant high end high performance jewelry!

It is all so much more than the sum of its parts.

 

I am sure you all know the specs, and Shelby threw the entire catalog of the best high performance street/track car options at this product. And it shows.

I only got to drive it about 100 miles so far, and I will continue to drive it gently until its first break-in oil is changed, but it is easy to tell - this is no fluffy bunny. She is gentle at low throttle but oh so damm angry as those RPMs rise.

Its snowing here for the first time this year (today), so my guess is it will be parked until spring.

 

I want to personally thank the team at Shelby for a fantastic buying experience! They did an outstanding job.

IMHO, if you are on the fence about ordering one, and you see one of these cars in person - you are going to regret not pulling the trigger.

 

 

All the best,

Congratulations! These are every bit the awesome Shelby as advertised and will meet or exceed all expectations. I was able to drive one at Terlingua this year and they are truly awesome! And even better this is a Terlingua!! Fear the Bunny.

Since I still haven't seen mine in person yet lol answer this question for me... The Terlingua fender decal on both sides someone else who has one said the decal is poorly made and the color is not even Yellow and said it stands out not in a good way so what is your opinion of this decal? I think the color looks like urine after you take a multi vitamin and your urine turns Golden Yellow.

 

I asked SAI about this and they can't change it as approval must come from the I forget his name/family running the Terlingua products.

 

I'd be willing to put up some money if us owners get together and have some new ones made

 

That decal is probably the only thing I don't like on the car. It has that shinny chrome look to it that sticker's from the 70's had but maybe its just my opinion

I imagine the shield is the same it has always been, in chrome, black, and god awful yellow. I was not a fan of the quality of the decals sold so I took a couple of shield keychains and made fender badges. The keychains are no longer available. I had made a suggestion years ago that they turn the decal into badge.

This was my 2010 version of the KeyChain-to-Badge on the 2008 GT/CS convertible; similar on 2014, no pics.

Sorry for the late response- off for DisneyWorld with the family.

 

If you don't like the fender decals that come on them, you can get OEM replacements that are correct through Gary Disney, or through thestablealpine.com

 

They also are selling redline hoodstruts correct for our hoods, and windshield banners.

 

Nice bunny 01!!

 

I hear 02 is a local to me black car as well, but have yet to see it.

 

Oswald needs the company!

Always nice to see another bunny hit the road! Let us all know where abouts you are located!

 

Yes, the decals Shelby are using are not the same as the ones used on the last production run - but as Dubbs said there are replacements available and profit from these go to the Terlingua Preservation Society to boot! Win-Win! :yahoo:

 

If you ever want to join some of the other bunny owners for the annual Terlingua event just let us know - best event of the year :shoppingcart_:
