After a five-year hiatus, the Shelby GT Ford Mustang has made a return for the 2014 model year.

Based on the standard Mustang GT, the Shelby GT variant can be had with 430 hp in base model form, but power-hungry enthusiasts can opt for the Shelby GT/SC supercharged model that comes standard with 525 hp. If that’s not enough, Shelby offers a variant with a staggering 624 hp, the most powerful version of the Mustang GT ever made.

As a post-title program, Ford dealerships can send a customer’s GT coupe or convertible to Shelby for the packages with the entry-level kits including a Ford Racing suspension, Shelby exhaust, intake and engine tune for 430 hp, wheels and tires, short shifter, hood and Le Mans stripes. Every Shelby GT model is 50-state emissions legal and runs on standard pump gas.

There’s also an assortment of options buyers can choose from, including more aggressive suspension bits, better brakes and supercharger upgrades. As for the 624-hp GT/SC version, that Mustang will launch to 60 mph from a standstill in about 3.7 seconds.

The base Shelby GT price starts at $14,995 – not including the car of course. The Shelby GT/SC package begins at $27,995.

    The 2015 mustang will be shedding wgt and come in around 3300-3500 lbs. Very close to the corvette and viper. The Mach 1 moniker has been trademarked and will replace the GT500 Shelby name. The 5.8 monster will still be available and much lighter should hit 0-60 in under 3.5 seconds. We can now consider this a true American supercar. GM and Ford are developing a new 9 speed auto which eventually should trickle down to this beast. The auto will be an excellent addition to the 5.8 since the Camaro ZL1 offers a six speed auto and a new cuda with the hellcat hemi pushing around 640 hp will offer a new 8 speed auto. Let the modern hp wars continue.

    Junk metal scrap packed with 624hp, even this claimed HP is not attenable

    The hp number is at the crank minus 20pct to the wheels should yield 500 net hp. I assume by you comment you didn’t understand how hp numbers are achieved. Refer to google on dyno numbers when testing engine hp torque curves. You will have a better understanding in how hp numbers are tabulated. The best dial in on how quick a vehicle really is comes from 0-60 numbers tested by not only the auto maker but on tests by the various magazines. The current GT500 is tested at 3.7 which is consistent with most testers. I guess you are right on hp sometimes not being attainable but the numbers 0-60 give the best on how fast the vehicle really is.
    How a great Turkey Day.

    Looks like a good option for enthusiasts who want more than stock but are not especially fond of Roush. I am looking forward to the first head-to-head between them!
