Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 by Wheelsandmore
Adding a modern touch to an American classic, the German tuners Wheels and More have taken a Shelby GT5000 and given it a full Eleanor makeover. It is hard to imagine Carroll Shelby ever intending for a set of 20s to find their home in the wheel wells of a Mustang, but I can assure you that he won’t disapprove.
Press release after the jump.
Customizing exclusive and exotic cars is one of the specialities from german tuner and wheel-manufacturer Wheelsandmore, located in Baesweiler near Aachen.
It seems that the crew added their current wheel 6Sporz perfectly to the legendary Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
In fact, it´s a totally customized Ford Mustang S-Code Fastback, built in 1967, having a 5,7L Ford V8-engine with a Shelby GT 500 Bodykit.
To retain most of the 350 horsepower, Wheelsandmore optimized the weight of their forged 20“ rims by using FEM-analysis and took stainless steel outside rims of the highest quality.
By finishing those high-end-wheels with titanium screws the weight depends about 24 lbs .
On the front axle they took a 9,0×20“ with 235/30/20 and on the rear axle 10,5×20 with 275/30/20 Pirelli PZero Nero.
Outside the car should look similar to the original Eleanor look within the original lacquering.
Inside the car modern and classic parts should be combinated and the professionals did well by designing single frame parts.
All seats were covered with new leather and the ceiling was coated with high class Alcantara
The dashfront is made of a few cnc drilled aluminium plates and fits perfectly to the the new leather covered dashboard, which is equipped with new Autometer car instruments and the interieur is completed with a massive Tilton pedal set.
The suspension is a special mixture with Koni shock absorbers and a special spring set at the front axle.
