2013 Shelby GT500 Chase

Carroll Shelby In Vintage Cobra
Carroll Shelby has been the subject of many a blog post and article over the past week and a half since his passing. Over the course of his almost nine-decade life, Shelby was involved in almost every imaginable aspect of automobiles, from racing, product development, marketing, and aftermarket tuning.

Shelby Whipple 3.4L Black Supercharger Tuner Kit
A new supercharger kit for 2007-2012 Shelby GT500 models has been announced by Shelby Performance Parts. Designed to replace the stock roots-type supercharger of the 5.4-liter V-8, the Shelby/Whipple 3.4L Black Supercharger Tuner Kit can increase output by as much as 300 horsepower and, according to Shelby, is the largest twin-screw system available for that engine. To help deal with all that extra heat, Shelby is also offering its new Competition Heat Exchanger and Shelby GT500 Competition Intercooler.

Shelby 1000 Front Three Quarter

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Shelby Cobra, the company has cooked up two new Ford Mustang variants, the 950-hp Shelby 1000 and the 1100-hp Shelby 1000 S/C.
