The S550 Ford Mustang is nearing the end of its life cycle, with the all-new S650 generation 2024 Mustang set to debut next week. However, the current-gen Shelby GT500 still remains firmly atop the pony car hierarchy with copious amounts of power, style, and corner-carving capacity, making it a highly desirable – and frequently marked-up – vehicle. One lucky person is going to bring home this Rapid Red 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 courtesy of a sweepstakes hosted by the Shelby American Collection, however, plus $25k in cash to spend however they see fit.
This stunning 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a fully-loaded example, too, as it’s equipped with the optional Carbon Fiber Track Package and exposed carbon fiber wheels, the Technology Package, and painted black stripes, which are all rather pricey options.
Of course, like all Shelby GT500 models of the current generation, this particular car is also equipped with the supercharged Ford 5.2L V8 Predator powerplant that churns out 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, with other top-notch features including Brembo brakes, MagneRide dampers, and Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tires, to name just a few.
As if this amazing car wasn’t enough of a sweepstakes prize on its own accord, the winner will also get $25,000 in cash to help cover taxes. Better yet, proceeds from the sweepstakes benefit the Shelby American Collection, a not-for-profit museum located in Boulder, Colorado, which aims to preserve Carroll Shelby’s legacy with some truly amazing cars, race records, photographs, and memorabilia from the legend’s glory days in the 1960s.
Those that wish to throw their name in the proverbial hat to win all these goodies can do so by heading over here to secure their entries.

This sweepstakes is scheduled to end on September 3rd, 2023, at which time a winner will be chosen. And who knows – it might just be one of our readers!
