That car's dash is personally signed by Carol Shelby himself and it shares space with that bespoke Aston Martin done up by their Q division.
Belongs to a BHPian's garage

Nice! Finally some pics.

I actually caught a fleeting glimpse of the beauty a few days back too.

Looking at the badge, which says GT500CR - led me to the following:

Classic Recreations is licensed by Shelby American to build ’66 and ’67 Shelby continuation vehicles. Each one is fitted with an official Shelby serial number that’s included in in the Shelby Registry.

...

CR starts with a real ’67 steel Mustang body (not a GT500 body), stripping it down to its skivvies and stuffing it with all manner of modern upgrades: coil-over-shock suspension in the front and rear, cross-drilled and zinc-washed brakes, a Mass Flo fuel-injected 7-liter engine with 545 hp and 5-speed Tremec transmission. Any sheet metal that’s been damaged or allowed to rust over the last 45 years is replaced, and the overall structure is reinforced to handle the extra power. (The engines in ’67 Mustangs varied dramatically, running either 6 or 8 cylinders and starting as low as 115hp.) Shelby-licensed body panels — listed in the brochure as “authentic Carroll Shelby Exterior Fiberglass enhancements” — and signature accessories and gauges complete the look. And, boy, does it look real.

Looks like Eleanor makes it to Mumbai after the boost

Jokes apart but it looks stunning and in mint condition. Wonder what the upkeep of these cars would be like in terms of spares availability

I guess that's a Supra. Is the Blue Mustang the same one that has been modified a million times by Team Motor Works - have to admit it really looks good.

Coming to the Shelby - the car looks amazing and good to know its owned by a BHPian. Would request the BHPian to post some detailed pics of this beauty and the rest of the garage mates A bhpians garage should not be private to bhpians .... just Kidding congrats to the bhpian ..would be great to get some closer and detailed pics.

That's F&F Mumbai version right there! Muscle and import, Diesel and Walker.. The car looks stunning in that shade. Though not a fan of muscle cars, this one is something else.

Thanks for the pic.

I am not a big fan of these "officially approved" recreations. Now a restored original '67 Mustang is a different story.
Not to sound offensive but this to me is a modern car (with bad NVH) that's been fitted with Shelby-approved body panels. And the Shelby tag somehow justifies the premium pricing.

Since a couple of people have asked about the Supra in the picture, here's a thread for those of you who missed it:

Link (My Toyota Supra (2JZ) - Candy Orange)

Looks like the same car.

Apparently both the Supra and the blue with white stripes Mustang belong to the same family. The blue Mustang will share space with a lot of other exciting cars in the owner's garage.

Would be interesting to know if the grey LHD shelby is on carnet or registered. Since LHD import and registrations are not permitted anymore would be interesting to know how this was permitted if locally registered. Blue one seems neat assuming it's the local car finally in a more deserving and well executed avatar

It is not on carnet, it has a MH-01 registration! From what I have read, CR uses the shell of a normal Mustang (not a Shelby) and does the mods on it. Even I am wondering how it was registered here since almost everything on the car has been changed. More than a mod, it is like creating a new car itself
