I think the Ford Raptor, with its own name scribbled all over it in screaming font and its massiveness and its 450 horsepower and its long-travel shocks, is profoundly silly. I mean, I get its appeal in, like, an off-road sense. But I couldn’t imagine that anyone would need more than that—let alone for over $100,000.…
Once up on a time, Carroll Shelby wanted to kick ass in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. To do it right, he decided to lengthen a Daytona to fit a big block inspired by NASCAR, but the car never made to the race. Now Shelby American is bringing it back for a limited run of heritage cars.
Are you so ‘Murican that you bleed red, white, blue and Donkey Sauce? Do you need a truck that magically emits pure bald eagle tears out of its tailpipe? Well, then, what you need is the true blue 2017 Shelby F-150 Super Snake, because it’s the only time these colors DO run—very fast quarter-mile times.
Many modern track cars are offered with a dual-clutch transmission, but not the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350! No, only a 6-speed manual has been good enough for the GT350. At least until Ford dropped a 7-speed DCT into the new Ford GT and then (reportedly) got an idea.
The Monterey Car Week auctions are where the beautiful members of the landed gentry go to blow obscene amounts of money on cars, and at yesterday’s RM Sotheby’s auction, one of them took Cobramania to new heights. This 1962 Shelby 260 Cobra known as the CSX 2000 just commanded $13.75 million at auction. Here’s why.
Car dealer and racing magnate Jim Click is selling his 1966 Ford GT40, 1969 and 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Trans Ams, two 1964 Shelby 289 Cobras and a 1966 Shelby GT350. It’s safe to say that RM Auctions has a real treat for Ford fans in Monterey.
Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.
There are Mustangs. There are Shelby Mustangs. But in all of Mustang-dom, few nameplates are as equally revered and feared for their brutal ferocity and tendency to literally send owners to hell like “Super Snake.”
Bruce Meyer has worked hard over the years to build a reputation as one of the world’s great car guys. He makes a point of expressing his love of fine automobiles at every opportunity, whether that is through his involvement with the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles or simply taking a piece of his collection…
Ford factory-backed race team Multimatic is on a massive roll. After a decisive home turf win at Canadian Tire Motorsport park two weeks ago, the team pulled into Lime Rock Park this weekend armed what would again prove to be the deadliest weapons in the Continental Challenge GS field: their pair of Ford Performance…
The 2016 Ford Mustang GT350R is the first proper production car to come standard with carbon fiber wheels, and the front pair uses the same ceramic plasma arc spray-on heat protection what NASA put on the original Space Shuttle’s main fuel pump turbine blades. That should do it!
The 2011 to 2014 Ford Raptor is highly off-road capable with 411 horsepower. The Shelby Baja 700 adds a 2.9 liter supercharger, big ol' exhaust, jump-worthy suspension, and takes the output up to (you guessed it) 700 horsepower.
What happens when you take a 2015 Ford Mustang GT and add a supercharger, sticky Michelin tires, racing-grade wheels, a Borla exhaust, a carbon fiber hood and enough Shelby decals and badges to make a Fiat 500 Abarth look understated? You get 627 horsepower and the 2015 Shelby GT. The "GT" here stands for "GoT-damn,"…
The Shelby Cobra has celebrated its 50th anniversary at least twice now, but next year marks the introduction of the 427 model, and Shelby is building 50 new examples to commemorate the occasion, starting at just under $120k.
Well, that was unexpected. While riding through the hills outside of Palm Springs, I just happened to come across a done-up Shelby GT in the middle of some elaborate marketing shoot. Oh, and it brought along a friend, too.
If they call you Mr. Cobra and Shelby American's younger staff used to ring you up for advice when it came to fixing old Cobras, you might just be the man with the grandest Cobra collection of them all. Shelby fans, this is your Mecca.
Like most people, I have about $120,000 in cold, hard cash that's just burning a hole in my pocket right now, and I can't decide which exotic car to spend it on. Luckily for me — and possibly someone else — an eBay listing for four rare 1980s Shelby-branded Dodges has come to my rescue!
Every year, some company with more ambition than experience puts out a press release and a rendering and a litany of promises about revolutionary, all-electric performance. Then silence. It's the cult of ego and vaporware. Renovo is not a member, and it's out to prove it with an electric Shelby Daytona with 1,000…
Actually, maybe one thing: That it isn't mine.
