So you do want to buy a Shelby GT500 - in exactly the same specification as in the movie "Gone in 60 seconds" - restored by the grand Shelby himself? Well now you prices starting at $80000 that is. Previously Shelby GT500's were either available as direct buys from owners who had kept them over the years, or recently restored cars...but mainly by the unorganised segment.

Sensing the growing popularity of this car after the hit movie, and to tap the potential $$$, a couple of partners including a Shelby dealer and the great Shelby himself have come up with this brilliant idea to restore GT500's. They will be made to exacting specifications and offer an choice of different powerplants.

If I had $100,000 right now for a car...believe it or not, I would honestly be stuck between a Ferrari and the Shelby GT500 E. This car has just too much of the good look factor, image and muscle car performance for me to resist. Its sheer charisma...a legend...the truly 60's American muscle car.


Heres a link to the complete Shelby article!!
