Default Shelby GT500 CR Mustang by Classic Recreations!

Last month at the SEMA show, Classic Recreations announced that it will build a continuation version of the legendary Shelby Mustang GT500. This is done under the Carrol Shelby approval and each car will have an official Shelby serial number.
Three different models of the G.T.500CR will be offered. All will feature a hand-built 427 cubic inch (7.0L) engine, custom paint and model specific bodywork. Entry level model is called “Intro” and is powered by 545 hp V8 that comes with a 150 hp NOS nitrous oxide system for extra power if needed. Above the entry model is the “Performance” model with upgraded seats, larger rear wheels and a coilover suspension system for better handling.
The top of the range model is called “Venom” and it comes with an F1-R Intercooled ProCharger supercharged engine that pumps the power to 780 horsepower. Other upgrades are a 200 mph speedometer, bucket seats, suspension and chassis upgrades. For full details see the press release below.

Press release:
Custom coachbuilder Classic Recreations has released preliminary technical details and package specifications for the G.T.500CR, a 1967 Shelby continuation vehicle that was announced opening day of the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas. All three G.T.500CR models will feature a hand-built 427 cubic inch (7.0L) engine, model specific bodywork, custom paint and hand-stitched upholstery. Every car will have an official Shelby serial number, badges and will be included in the official Shelby Worldwide Registry.
The G.T.500CR will be offered in three models. The “Intro” model is powered by a 545hp fuel injected 427, built in-house at Classic Recreations using top-shelf performance parts and Mass Flo digital fuel injection. A 150hp NOS nitrous oxide system provides extra power when needed. Upgraded suspension and power rack and pinion steering modernize the car’s handling, and a Tremec five speed manual transmission sends the power to ZR rated tires on 17×8″ Shelby 427 wheels over front and rear cross drilled Shelby/Baer brakes. Inside, the driver will find a custom stereo, climate control and Carroll Shelby Signature seats, gauges, console, and floormats. The exterior is available in five different color schemes and features authentic Shelby Performance parts, such as lights, emblems and a real Shelby Le Mans racing gas cap.
The “Performance” model has all the features of the “Intro”, including the 150HP Nitrous system, rack and pinion steering and 160mph speedometer, plus Carroll Shelby Scat Rally series 1000 seats, larger 17×9.5 rear wheels and a Total Control front and rear coilover suspension system for modern sports car handling.
The “Venom” maintains the authentic Shelby look of the “Intro” and “Performance” models, but boosts horsepower to 780hp with an F1-R Intercooled ProCharger supercharged engine. The interior is upgraded with a 200mph speedometer and racing-style bucket seats. The “Venom” also boasts suspension and chassis upgrades as well as 17×11″ rear wheels and wider ultra high performance Goodyear tires. Model line specifications and details are subject to change.
