Shelby Mustang - 50th Anniversary

The other day I was traveling west on Interstate 40 and come up behind this truck and trailer. Of course it caught my attention, because my granddaughter's name is Shelby. I had to snap this photo. WOW, I did not realize that it was the 50th Anniversary of the Shelby Mustang! This has been her dream car, because it has her name on it.

Back in 1962, Carol Shelby built his first updated Mustang and now, as a celebration of their 50th anniversary, Shelby is offering a special edition Mustang in three different variants: the GTS, GT350, and Super Snake. Each model will be built in a limited run of 100 units, 50 white and 50 black, and will all be combined with gold racing stripes.

The most powerful version, the Super Snake, delivers a total of 750 HP and comes with a unique body kit, an upgraded interior, and a new set of wheels painted in matte black.

Prices for the new models are as follows: the Shelby GTS is priced at $19,995 for the V-6 and $24,995 for the V-8; the GT350 is priced at $59,995; and the Super Snake is priced at $59,995. All prices do not include the price for the standard 2012 Mustang GT or the Shelby GT500 for the Super Snake version.
