LAS VEGAS – July 30, 2020 – Executives with Shelby American today announced its first Carroll Shelby Signature Edition post-title packages for the 2020 Shelby GT500 and the 2015-2020 model year Shelby GT350SE, including the vaunted “R” model cars. Shelby American will enhance the styling, performance and exclusivity of the two iconic American sports cars and the Ford Shelby GT500SE will boast over 800 horsepower. Limited to only 100 per model year, each Shelby Signature Edition car will receive a Shelby CSM number and be documented in the official Shelby American Registry.

The cars will also include other ownership benefits including entry into Team Shelby, a donation to the Carroll Shelby Foundation and more. A host of options, including the popular widebody package will also be available including a “First 15” package.

“Both the Ford Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT500 are world-class sports cars with spectacular performance,” said Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. “Our limited-edition Carroll Shelby Signature Edition packages are designed to build on their amazing capabilities to deliver an even more aggressive, refined and exclusive version of the two spectacular cars. They’re exceptionally handsome and deliver dazzling performance mile after mile, lap after lap. Plus, the Shelby GT500SE will be eligible for further upgrades by Shelby American in the future.”

The 2020 Shelby GT500SE will boast an additional 40+ horsepower, fully functional dry carbon fiber hood, new wheels, tires, suspension tuning, interior, badges, stripes and more.

“We integrated a new pulley and coolers so the 5.2-liter V8 churns out over 800 horsepower on 93 octane pump gas,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief of R&D. “We lowered the car with more track-focused springs that match a new aggressive suspension tune. Then we cut 30 pounds off the top of the Shelby GT500SE with the ultra-light dry carbon fiber hood, which is also much stronger and lighter. An optional wide body modification is even available for the serious driver.

While the Shelby GT350 and its “R” model stablemate have been available since 2015, this is the first program for the car by Shelby American.

“The 1965 Shelby GT350 was the first Mustang-based car that Shelby American and Ford Motor Company created together,” said Patterson. “To celebrate 55 years of collaboration, we created the Shelby GT350SE with a more aggressive handling package, sporty interior, stripes, special wheels, performance tires, and several functional styling elements. The 2020 model cars will wear a unique anniversary badge while 2015-2019 cars will have a standard one. The Shelby GT350SE package is affordable, distinctive and includes the coveted Shelby serial number.”

The sale of each Signature Edition car benefits the Carroll Shelby Foundation, which was established by Carroll Shelby. The Foundation provides medical assistance for those in need, including children, educational opportunities for young people through automotive and other training programs and benefitting the Shelby Automotive Museum.

“The Carroll Shelby Foundation was very important to my grandfather, so I’m proud that cars bearing his personal signature will directly benefit his charity,” said Aaron Shelby, Co-President of the Carroll Shelby Foundation. “Because Carroll cared so deeply about enthusiasts, each car includes membership in Team Shelby, the club he established many years ago. We believe that Team Shelby is the heart of the Shelby community and the Carroll Shelby Foundation is its soul.”

Shelby American is offering a “First 15” incentive that includes special perks if a current generation Shelby GT500 or Shelby GT350 owner reserves their Signature Edition car by August 14, 2020.

“As one of the ‘First 15,’ an owner will receive an invitation to a special party for the group in Las Vegas, autographed photo of their car at Shelby, one of the first 15 Shelby serial numbers, official Shelby gear, one night’s stay at the D Las Vegas Casino and Hotel to visit Shelby American and other great benefits,” said Patterson. “It will be a very exclusive group.”

The Carroll Shelby Signature Edition post-title packages are available through Shelby American and will be built at the Las Vegas facility. A limited number will be built by select Shelby mod shops and distributors internationally. Individuals interested in these or any other Shelby vehicle can visit


Ford already sells multiple Shelby versions of the Mustang. But in case those don't satisfy your Shelby needs, Shelby American just announced Carroll Shelby Signature Edition versions of the GT350, GT350R, and GT500.

The company claims that the GT500 Carroll Shelby Signature Edition—or GT500SE—will make "800 plus" horsepower, touting a 40-hp gain of the 760-hp base car. This comes courtesy of a bigger supercharger pulley, upgraded cooling, and performance half shafts. The suspension, sway bars, and wheel studs also get updates to cope with the extra twist. On the outside, you get a special vented carbon hood, Shelby stripes and badging, and Shelby-branded hood locks. A wide-body kit is optional, while every GT500SE comes with updated seats and a commemorative dash plate.

The GT350SE and GT350RSe both get the same upgrades, with no added power. Instead, they gets new springs, sway bars, camber plates, and "performance spec tires." Cosmetically, GT350SEs come with Shelby badging, striping, and a new Shelby tail panel. The leather seats are recovered and a dash plate notes your car's significance. You'll also be able to get a special carbon fiber hood and a wide-body kit, but they're optional extras.

These special editions don't come cheap and they won't be common sights. The GT350 and GT350R upgrades cost $9995 plus the donor vehicle and will be limited to 100 vehicles. The GT500SE package goes for $29,995 plus a GT500, putting the total price for a base GT500SE at just over $100,000. Only 100 will be made.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500SE: The 800-HP-Plus GT500 With More Shelby

Shelby American will modify your GT500 and add it to the official registry.

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is already a car worthy of the Shelby name, but for those who want a more conspicuous connection to racing legend and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby, Las Vegas-based Shelby American is offering a Carroll Shelby Signature Edition package that turns your stock Mustang GT500 into a GT500SE with more power and an official Shelby CSM number.

Wondering why you'd want Shelby to tune and Shelby-fy a car that's already a Shelby? The relationship between Ford and Shelby can be a little confusing, so here's a quick breakdown: Ford licenses the Shelby name for the GT500 and GT350, which were developed 100-percent in-house at Ford. Shelby American is the company that Carroll Shelby founded, and still builds its own cars including continuation-series Cobras and modified Mustangs and F-150s. Shelby American is also the keeper of the official Shelby registry, which documents every Shelby-built vehicle going back to the early '60s. Because the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is not built by Shelby, it doesn't get a Shelby serial number.

But for $29,995, you can change that—and get a power boost and unique design touches to boot. Shelby American says the GT500SE will make more than 800 horsepower on 93-octane pump gas. The package includes a performance pulley for the stock 740-hp 5.2-liter "Predator" V-8's supercharger and additional heat exchangers for better cooling. Additionally, you get a ventilated carbon-fiber hood, new half shafts, upgraded front and rear anti-roll bars, a suspension recalibration with new springs front and rear, camber and caster adjustment plates, special wheels measuring 20 x 11 up front and 20 x 11.5 in the rear, and performance tires.

Completing the look are Shelby stripes and badges, leather seats embroidered with Shelby's signature, and badges galore. Then, of course, there's that all-important Shelby numbered dash plate. Just 100 examples will be made per model year, with the first 15 orders granted perks like a visit to Shelby American's Las Vegas headquarters. The Signature Edition program is also being extended to the 2015-2020 GT350 and GT350R, with the same production limitations in place for each model year.

So, if you feel like your GT500 just isn't Shelby enough to get you into the exclusive Shelby owners club, don't worry. Membership is just an extra $30,000 away.

We Adore This All-black 1967 Mustang With 800 Horsepower

The virtual edition of the 2020 SEMA Show, which is taking place this week, arguably generates a lot less attention than in years past, but we just can’t ignore this 1967 Ford Mustang restored and customized by RXN Motorsports. After all, who doesn’t have a soft spot for 1960s Mustangs?

First of all, the car stands out with a very sinister, almost demonic look. Completely dressed in black inside and out, the only contrasting elements are red stitching on the seats and door panels as well as red lighting on the instruments—kind of like Satan’s eyes.

Then there are 20-inch US Mags wheels wrapped in super-wide, low-profile Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, plus four huge tailpipes borrowed from the Nissan GT-R that must sound like hell.

The front fascia looks raw but still manages to incorporate new LED headlights. What’s more interesting is the bulging hood that houses a heavily modified engine. Starting with a second-generation Mustang Boss 302 5.0-litre V8, RXN Motorsports added a Whipple supercharger and made several other revisions to increase output to 800 horsepower—40 more than the new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500!

No performance figures were provided, but we bet this Mustang is extremely quick from 0-100 km/h and on the quarter mile. Fortunately, powerful Wilwood brakes replace the original ones to slow this beast down. And we’d sure love to see it do some burnouts.

Overall, the 1967 Ford Mustang by RXN Motorsports is high-quality work and it’s just too bad that we can’t marvel at it in person at SEMA. Hopefully the 2021 show will be a return to normal.

Horsepower mustang 800

  • Shelby American has unveiled its upgraded 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Signature Edition, and only 100 will be built.
  • The supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 produces more than 800 horsepower thanks to a smaller supercharger pulley and upgraded cooling.
  • The upgrades cost an additional $29,995 on top of the GT500's $71,495 starting price.

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the most powerful production Ford to date, but for some power-hungry crazies, 760 horsepower might not be enough. Good thing Shelby American exists, because it's building 100 upgraded GT500s with more than 800 horsepower. Disclaimer: we certainly didn't ask for this, but we're all for it.

To squeeze an additional 40-plus horsepower from the GT500's supercharged 5.2-liter V-8, Shelby American equipped a smaller supercharger pulley and an uprated heat exchanger and intercooler, and it runs on 93-octane pump gas. During Car and Driver testing, a stock 2020 GT500 launched to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds on its way to a 11.4-second quarter-mile at 132 mph, making it one of the quickest muscle cars we've ever tested.

The GT500SE sits a bit lower than the standard car, with new front and rear springs and anti-roll bars. Stronger axle shafts are equipped to handle the additional power. Adding to the GT500's already menacing look is a new vented carbon-fiber hood that's 30 pounds lighter than the original. A Shelby widebody kit and carbon-fiber package are both available. The car sits on 20-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, though sticky Cup 2 tires are optional.

Inside, the seats have been recovered with Carroll Shelby's signature stitched into the seatbacks. Remember, only 100 of these 800-plus-hp Mustangs will be built for each model year, and to make sure you know which one you have, Shelby includes both engine and dashboard plaques with the car's serial number.

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Signature Edition starts at $101,490—Shelby charges $29,995 for the upgrades—and is available to order now. Each sale will benefit the Carroll Shelby Foundation for children and grants membership to the Team Shelby club.

The deal is back: 800-horsepower Ford Mustang GT for $39,995

For Mustang fans, there may be no greater dealership from which to buy the popular pony car than Lebanon Ford.

This is the Ohio-based outfit that offers up serious power upgrades for far less cash than you think would be required. The latest offer? A 2019 Mustang GT packing 800 horsepower on sale for just $39,995, and that includes the car.

The car is called the LFP Hellion. That last bit refers to the Hellion Power Systems turbocharger upgrade found under the hood. This is a twin-turbo setup that includes dual bypass valves and a high-flow intercooler. Lebanon Ford pops in upgraded fuel injectors and gives the engine a new custom tune. When all is said and done the now-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 produces 800 hp at the crank.

These upgrades are applied to a base Ford Mustang GT, which is part of the way that Lebanon is able to deliver the car at such a relatively low price point. A standard Mustang GT making 460 horsepower costs $35,355. So there's still a discount involved when you step up to the LFP Hellion.

In the past, Lebanon has offered even more power for those with a desire to own a Mustang making four-digit horsepower. That's true again on the 2019 Mustang, as the dealership has enough upgrades in the parts department to make that happen should you have the cash on hand. For anyone that's already purchased a 2018 or 2019 Mustang, the LFP Hellion package can be had for $6,395.

This is a tremendous amount of power for a truly tremendous price. Compare it to the Dodge Hellcat siblings, which make 707-horsepower and start around $59,000. What Lebanon is offering here is a more potent pony car with a $20,000 discount against the Mopar muscle. Of course, the Hellcats feature numerous other upgrades that you may want to add to your LFP Hellion. We're thinking upgraded brakes and engine internals to start.
