Like the previous Shelby models, the new 2015 Shelby GT boosts performance by adding a supercharger. The base engine is the Mustang GT’s 5.0 liter V8 Coyote engine.
It is not just about the straight line performance. Mustang’s new independent rear suspension will ensure that the car is planted. The 2015 Shelby GT will also get Wilwood front brakes, upgraded shocks, springs and sway bars, and a short-throw shifter. Shelby American claims that the Shelby GT is street-drivable.
Visually, this car is features carbon fiber hood, front splitter, rockers, rear diffuser, deck lid, spoiler and more. Naturally, there are “SHELBY” badges everywhere. However you could also go the sleeper route and paint over the carbon fiber and forgoing the decals.
Options include a rear brake upgrade, custom interior, and the Shelby Extreme Cooling system. There’s also a 700+ hp upgrade available (if 627 hp isn’t enough). There is also a track delivery package. This special package will allow you to through your recent Shelby purchase into the wall as soon as you get your keys.
You can order a 2015 Shelby GT from your local Ford dealership. To start, the cost is $39,995 plus the price of a new Ford Mustang GT. So you’re looking at roughly $72,920.
