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.
