Shelby EXP500 Timepiece by MARCH LA.B

In 1968 Carol Shelby unveiled the Shelby EXP 500, a Mustang hardtop double prototype dubbed the “Green Hornet” that was powered by a fuel injected 428 CJ “X” engine and outfitted with a ‘68 Shelby custom hood and independent suspensions. Being a one of a kind model, this hot muscle car is a very valuable collector car, and one that deserves the honor of being paid tribute to in the form of a limited edition watch. MARCH LA.B has done just that with their Shelby EXP500 Timepiece

"This car is a part of the Shelby history," noted Jerome Mage, creative director of MARCH LA.B. "We designed the watch to celebrate one of Carroll’s greatest automotive creations. The timepiece includes the finest materials and craftsmanship that reflects Carroll’s car designs."

There will only be 200 Shelby EXP500 Timepieces available, each featuring a wood dial face that replicates the original dash of the muscle car along with Shelby’s signature and Cobra logo. The watch also gets a genuine leather buffle perforated style with green leather lining, an anti-reflective domed glass with sapphire logo, and a screwed case back with Glass encrusted Shelby logo.

Prices for this tributary watch have yet to be announced, but we highly doubt a timepiece that honors such a unique vehicle is going to come cheap.
