Shelby American has announced the 2020 Carroll Shelby Signature Series Ford Mustang is debuting today in Las Vegas. Shelby says it is the only sports car in the world with the choice of convertible or fastback, automatic or manual transmission, and 825 horsepower. Shelby American plans to make only 50 units in a very limited-edition run.
In addition to the supercharger under the hood, the car also has a widened body using aluminum fenders allowing the car to have wider tires in the front. The car rolls on one-piece forged Monoblock wheels and Shelby fits the car with Ford Performance tuned MagneRide suspension for improved handling and performance. The hood is made from alloy and features working ducting for cool air intake.
The car also has a high flow exhaust and comes with new brakes fitted. Shelby says that it worked closely with Ford Performance when building the vehicle. It’s particularly proud of the “high-quality aluminum fenders” that allow it to create a square footprint. Normally when you talk about a square footprint in the car world, what you’re talking about is the same size tires front and back. Mustangs typically have a staggered set up with wider wheels and tires in the back and narrower wheels and tires in the front.
The 2020 Carroll Shelby Signature Series Ford Mustang also features a different front fascia and bodywork that works in conjunction with the metallic ram air hood to drop under hood temperatures and route air around the vehicle. All 50 of the cars being made will have special badging and will be listed in the official Shelby Registry. Buyers can order the car in any of the standard 2020 Ford Mustang colors. The car with its 825 horsepower supercharged V-8 will start at $127,795 and comes with a three year or 36,000-mile warranty and will be offered through Shelby dealers across North America with a few of the cars being distributed internationally. Shelby announced last month that its customers preferred its hopped-up pickups over Mustangs.
