When Shelby unveiled their new, slithery GT500 Super Snake , we thought this was all that we were going to get in New York. Don’t get us wrong, we were pleased with the package, but now that the company has also unveiled the GTS package based on the V6 Mustang , we twice as happy as we were at the beginning. The GTS package will be offered in both coupe and convertible version with prices starting from $9,995.
The main add-on for the GTS package is a Ford Racing handling pack including new springs, tuned stabilizer bars, and front strut tower brace, and the fresh air package for the normally aspirated V6 tune or V8. Other noteworthy additions are the new Borla exhaust system, Shelby / Baer brakes, redesigned classic Shelby hood, a black billet upper grill with Ford “Running Pony” emblem, unique Shelby front fascias, and Shelby stripes and badges. The Mustang also comes with an official Shelby CSM interior plate.
"Our Shelby GTS is a fantastic way to pump up the capabilities of a stock Mustang within a budget without sacrificing performance," added Mr. Luft. "It’s a car that reaches a younger buyer while acknowledging the economic realities of our times."
