The 2023 Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Mustang was just revealed last month as a very special, limited-edition tribute to the late icon a full century after his birthday. Shelby American is only planning to build 100 total Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Mustang examples, with a price tag of $49,995 – sans the donor car. However, Ford Authority readers now have the chance to bring home a 2023 Ford Mustang Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Mustang for far less than that, thanks to a new sweepstakes from the Shelby American Automobile Club.
On the outside, the Shelby Centennial Edition Mustang features widened aluminum front fenders, a Shelby upper grille, side rockers and rocker wings, a rear spoiler, over-the-top satin vinyl stripes, a vented hood, black 20-inch Shelby wheels, and 305/30 tires, while the interior has been spruced up with unique door sill plates, floor mats, and embroidered headrests. Power comes from the Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine, which has been enhanced with a Whipple supercharger and Borla cat-back exhaust, bringing output to 750 horsepower. Underneath, a bevy of upgrades help put that power to the ground, including performance springs and sway bars, adjustable caster and camber plates, and a set of Ford Performance/Brembo front brake calipers.
All 100 units of this unique machine have already sold out, and this particular car – which will be finished in Iconic Silver Metallic and equipped with a six-speed manual transmission – is number 100 out of 100, making it a bit more special than most. As if this amazing car wasn’t enough of a sweepstakes prize on its own accord, the proceeds will go to the Shelby American Automobile Club, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is dedicated to the preservation, care, history, and enjoyment of the world championship cars from Shelby American and the cars they have inspired from 1962 to today.
Those that wish to throw their name in the proverbial hat to win this special pony car can do so by heading over here to secure their entries. Better yet, use the promo code FORDAUTHORITY and score bonus entries – the more one donates, the more bonus entries one receives. This sweepstakes is scheduled to end on December 10th, 2023, at which time a winner will be chosen. And who knows – it might just be one of our readers!
