Classic Recreations’ recently unveiled heritage Shelby GT500CR carbon fiber concept car has gone into production and is ready to order. Dubbed the Carbon Edition, only 25 of these limited edition 1967/68 Shelby supercars will be delivered by the company at the Shelby American facility in Las Vegas and are available for worldwide distribution. Each vehicle has been spec’d for performance and will receive unique badging, a personalized delivery experience, registration in the Shelby Worldwide Registry and include a donation to the Carroll Shelby Foundation.
In addition to being wrapped in SpeedKore Performance Group autoclave-cured prepreg carbon fiber, each will be powered by a Whipple supercharged Ford 5.0L Gen 3 Coyote engine mated to a Tremec six-speed manual transmission. This potent vehicle has dual adjustable coil-over suspension, tubular subframe connectors, high-performance Wilwood brakes, roll bar, hydraulic steering rack and more. The stunning interior features an Alcantara headliner and a Lecarra leather-wrapped aluminum steering wheel. The result is stunning perfection in a car that is an astounding 600 pounds lighter than stock. The power-to-weight ratio is on par with the most exotic vehicles, making it a modern world-class supercar with American muscle at its soul.
