Post Shelby Supercharged and Shelby SR Post Title Packages Announced



Near the end of June Shelby Automobiles announced a slew of new post-title packages for various Shelby and Mustang GT models. Of the six new models introduced two of them were geared toward 2005-09 Ford Mustang GT's. The two post-title packages for the Mustang GT include the 500 horsepower "Shelby Supercharged" and the 550 horsepower "Shelby SR". Both packages include performance upgrades in the form of a Kenne Bell supercharger along with exterior enhancements, suspension and brake upgrades. Installation of these packages will take place at Shelby Autos in Las Vegas or one of the authorized Shelby Mod Shops around country.

Included with the"Shelby Supercharged" package is a Kenne Bell supercharger along with other improvements to the suspension, exterior and brakes. This package will set you back $19,599.

The SR package uses a Kenne Bell/Shelby supercharger to get the 500 horsepower. An optional Shelby/Ford Racing unit is optional which will push horsepower to 550. Other improvements for this package Baer 6-piston brakes, fully adjustable Eibach suspension, rear Watts Link and other race style equipment. This package will set you back a staggering $31,499. The SR will be limited to just 1000 units.

Press Release:

Shelby Automobiles, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., (CSBI.PK) unveiled two 500+ horsepower post-title packages for 2005-2009 Ford Mustang GTs during the 35th Mid America Ford and Team Shelby Nationals in Tulsa, Okla. The 500 HP “Shelby Supercharged” and 550 HP “SR” packages include serious performance upgrades and exterior styling cues. Both 50-state legal packages can only be installed at Shelby Automobiles in Las Vegas or an authorized Shelby Mod Shop beginning September 2009.

“In traditional Shelby style, both amazing packages will give Mustang GT owners a competitive edge on the track, as well as styling that will set their pony car apart from anything else on the street,” said Amy Boylan, president of Shelby Automobiles. “While both cars pack a wallop and are seriously sexy, we’re offering two levels of performance depending on an enthusiast’s intent. The Shelby Supercharged really enhances the capabilities of the Mustang GT while the SR makes the pony car an impressive track performer, too.”

The Shelby Supercharged package includes a Kenne Bell Supercharger that cranks out 500 HP. In addition to this increase in horsepower, the package includes improvements to the Mustang GTs handling, styling and stopping power. Mustang GT owners can bring their cars to the Las Vegas factory or authorized Shelby Mod Shop to have the work completed and registered in the official factory registry.

The Shelby SR pushes the performance envelope to an entirely new level. With a 500 HP Kenne Bell/ Shelby supercharger (a 550 HP Shelby/Ford Racing unit is optional), Shelby/Baer 6 piston brakes, fully adjustable Eibach suspension, rear Watts Link and other race style equipment, the SR is perfect for track days as well as the street. Only 1,000 Shelby SRs per model year will be built.

“The performance on the SR is totally amazing,” added Gary Davis, vice president of production. “With 550 horses coupled to a short throw shifter, serious brakes and competition inspired suspension, this machine can really move. I especially like it with the optional six speed tranny.”

Prices for the post-title Shelby Supercharged package start at $19,599.00 (car not included) with:

“Our Shelby post-title packages will give any stock Mustang GT a serious shot of adrenalin,” added Boylan. “We’ve worked closely with partners like Ford Racing, Kenne Bell, Borla, Eibach and Kicker to make them true to the balanced performance Shelby heritage. It’s one bad car that’s very reasonable for the true enthusiast.”
