Shelby Terlingua Racing Team Mustang GT-03

Shelby American has announced a new special edition Terlingua Racing Team Mustang, based on the Ford Mustang GT. It’s a tribute to the Terlingua Racing Team (TRT) of the 60s, headed by Carroll Shelby and Bill Neale. Only 50 models will be made, and it carries with it a price tag of USD$65,999 (RM287,150).

Outside, it’s fitted with a new grille with mesh inserts and Terlingua Racing Team badges. Moreover, it’s decked with carbon-fibre parts, including a front splitter, side skirts and a rear spoiler. As the introduction of the Terlingua Mustang has been rather discreet, from the looks of it, there’s a carbon-fibre bonnet added into the mix as well.

Down the back, the limited edition muscle car gets a Borla exhaust system with black tips. The car sits on 20-inch Weld Racing wheels, while a Brembo Big Brake kit provides stopping power. Handling is enhanced by adjustable coilers and an exclusive Shelby by Eibach sway bar.

Power-wise, as this is the Mustang GT, underneath the hood is a 5.0 litre V8 engine. However this guy here is fitted with a Whipple supercharger. The combination allows the Terlingua Mustang to churn out over 750 hp, which is obviously way more power than the 435 hp in the standard Mustang GT.

Other notable features include axle shafts and a short-throw shifter from Ford Performance. To complete it, the Mustang also receives a specially autographed plaque with signatures from Carroll Shelby, Bill Neale (one of TRT’s founders and designer of the team’s insignia) and 1967 Trans Am Champion driver, Jerry Titus.
