New muscle car: Ford's Shelby GT

2006-08-14 07:28

Ford's latest hot wheels - the all-new Shelby GT

According to Ford the Shelby GT is one of nine new product introductions coming in the next six months for the American car market.

Under its bonnet is a 4.6-liter V8 producing 240 kW and production will be limited in volume therefore assuring its exclusivity like all Shelby Mustang models.

The Shelby GT will be offered only as a coupe, and only in two exterior white or black.

Both colours are accented by silver LeMans-style racing stripes - a signature detail of classic Shelby Mustangs.

The LeMans stripes extend over the bonnet, roof, and boot, and are complemented by matching side stripes with ?Shelby GT? nomenclature.

The powerful face of the Shelby GT features a unique front fascia, with a more aggressive lower air dam.

Its brushed-aluminum grille is accented by an offset Mustang logo. In addition, the Shelby GT has a new bonnet scoop that comes directly from the famed Shelby Cobra roadster.

There are also chrome-finished 18-inch wheels and unique side scoops just before the rear wheel arches and at the back the car gets large dual exhaust pipes.
