ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Carroll Shelby’s company used the New York show, site of the original Mustang’s 1964 debut, to introduce the new GTS model, an affordable package of modifications to the popular pony car.

The company offered the conceptually similar Ford Shelby GT in 2007-2008, and has been waiting for Ford to introduce its recent 5.0-liter V8 and 3.7-liter V6 engines in the Mustang to launch an encore.

Customers can start with either a V6 or V8-powered Mustang and Shelby’s team will add a raft of upgrades starting with the suspension. That means stiffer springs and anti-sway bars and a front strut tower brace along with Baer brakes, improving the car’s road holding and stopping capability. A Borla exhaust system lets the car announce its more serious intent, and slew of appearance tweaks include a Shelby hood, stripes, fascias, badges, lettering and identifications plates to leave no doubt that this isn’t a stock Mustang.

Shelby’s crew leaves the engine itself untouched in the base $9,995 upgrade package (plus the cost of a new Mustang), but they will bolt on a supercharger for either engine to boost output, add bigger wheels, adjustable suspension arms, still better brakes and a two-tone leather interior if the customer keeps their wallet open long enough.

The official rating for the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 is 525 hp, a 114-hp improvement over the normally aspirated engine. Shelby plans to start building the cars in the fourth quarter of the year.
