1967 Shelby Supercharged GT500 by RK Motors

Mention a 1967 Shelby GT500 and right away the first car that comes to everyone’s mind is the star of Gone in 60 Seconds. No, we are not talking about Nicholas Cage or Angelina Jolie, we are talking about the beautifully sleek and sexy Eleanor. This is a car that needs no introduction, so it’s no wonder that people are wanting to try and recreate the spirit of this very car.

One of those people is RK Motors, who, in collaboration with Pro Touring Super Cars, have developed a 1967 Shelby Supercharged GT500 that is beyond any imagination. For starters, they took the body of a 1967 GT500 and then added a modern engine to create a perfect combination. After that the tuner added the rear cap and integrated spoiler, C-pillar and quarter panel scoops, nose cone with center-mounted lights, and a vented Shelby hood. After adjusting every detail of the body, RK Motors applied a spectacular Acapulco Blue paint combined with Shelby stripes.

This all may sound fabulous, but the most impressive changes were made under the hood. They used a 4.6 Liter Supercharged DOHC V8 Cobra engine that delivers 444 HP and 495 pounds of torque at the wheels. The package also includes a exhaust system featuring Magnaflow mufflers and tips, 12-way adjustable coil-over shocks, and 18-inch Coys wheels.

All of these spectacular details come together to create a wicked sweet ride which is priced at a reasonable $99,900. This may seem like a lot to some, but the lusciousness that is Eleanor is simply priceless. After understanding that, the price tag really doesn’t matter anymore.

I am glad to see Ford take steps to decrease weight, but as much as I love big block power, I’d take a car that weighs closer to 3000lbs rather than a 550bhp spec sheet racer.

The Shelby Mustang has been, since it’s reintroduction, a car for nostalgic buyers. It has an antiquated suspension setup and the last generation was extremely heavy for a performance vehicle.

In collaboration with Pro Touring Super Cars they have created a supercharged GT500. Starting with a standard 1967 GT500 they’ve come up with a real dream car.

Old but goodies super car, love it or leave is the words for this thing, i bet it can take most modern sports car like GT-R and Porsche.
