In early 2012, Ford unveiled the very cool Shelby 1000 , a special edition Mustang delivering an amazing 950 HP. Following that reveal, David Yurman released a series of limited edition timepieces to commemorate the unveiling of the Shelby 1000. Now both the car and the watch are featured in this new video released by Yurman.
This video was released to celebrate American Iconic designer, Carroll Shelby, as well as to introduce the fantastic timepiece that was created to coincide with the powerful machine Shelby built. The watch is limited to 300 units and features a 43.5mm stainless steel and rubber case, which houses the Swiss automatic chronograph Valjoux 7753 movement. A tachymeter is engraved on the bezel, allowing the wearer to log lap times with ease and the iconic Shelby Cobra insignia is hand-finished and applied to the multi-layer galvanic dial, which is accentuated by vertical, guilloche racing stripes.
The Ford Shelby Mustang 1000 is powered by a 5.4 liter V8 engine that has received new connecting rods, a new crank, and new pistons. The team also upgraded the cooling and exhaust, replaced the supercharger, and gas flowed the heads. These changes result in an impressive 950 HP in the road-legal version and an even more impressive 1,100 for the track version.
Whether you’re watching the video to take a look at the limited timepiece or to listen to the glorious sounds of the highly-modified V8, this video will definitely be worth your while.
