Earlier today, Shelby American revealed that it would soon be unveiling its own unique version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, some time after a one-off variant of the EV crossover was introduced at the 2021 SEMA Show. Now, that new, special model – which the long-time tuner calls the Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT – has officially been revealed with an array of upgrades and unique touches, though it’s only available in Europe.
The Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT is the iconic company’s very first production EV, though it’s limited to just 100 packages, which can be used to retrofit 2021-2023 model year crossovers or added to a new one by Shelby American dealers in Europe. That package consists of modifications designed to reduce weight and improve handling, and include an array of carbon fiber parts such as the hood splitter, custom lightweight wheels, mirror caps, and door trim.
Additionally, the Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT features a special handling package that lowers the vehicle, Shelby badging inside and out, racing stripes, and Shelby floor mats, along with an official identification number. The final piece of the puzzle is the new Borla Performance Sound System, giving the otherwise silent all-electric crossover a proper ICE soundtrack. Each Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT also includes a paid membership in Team Shelby, and is be eligible for documentation in the official Shelby Registry. Expected to launch in July, this special package retails for €24,900 ($27,483 USD), not including the cost of the donor vehicle.
“Carroll Shelby actively pursued opportunities to expand worldwide, and that philosophy continues to drive us today,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “As a visionary, Carroll was an early proponent of exotic materials and the integration of advanced technologies, including electrification. In an interview published by Ford Performance before his passing, Carroll looked forward to electric vehicles. The first production Shelby EV fits perfectly into our goal to maintain Shelby American’s position as a leading manufacturer of distinctive, small volume performance vehicles.”

Only for Europe? Going to lose out on potential usa sales.
Yea, lets make sure Europe gets first dibs on anything new from Ford
It reminds me of the ugly Mustang II back in the 70s. That was so bad, they slapped big blue stripes on it and called it a Shelby. That didn’t help at all. It was too slow and ugly to be called a Mustang or a Shelby. This might be fast but, it is one ugly car, in my opinion.
They sure did sell a lot of IIs. I think 2nd only to 1st gen
That Mustang II won the Motor Trend “Car of the Year” Award. And it was iconic in “Charlie’s Angels”. So it made automotive history.
There were no Mustang II’s called “Shelby”
Buy American …. You are correct. It was a “special edition” model with stripes and a spoiler. They called it the Mustang Cobra.
Borla Sound Trac? BIZZARE
This vehicle is confusing and a mess. It’s just another version of a CUV for old women, but now makes fake engine noises? What a bunch of rice. Why not put baseball cards in the spokes? And then call upon the Shelby name for a CUV? Who is this supposed to be for? Who comes up with this nonsense?
