2022 Shelby Ford F-150 Raptor

2022 Shelby Ford F-150 Raptor

It offers an extra 75 horsepower over the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor!

When Ford announced the new generation F-150 Raptor everyone expected to see at least a small power increase. Well, turns out Ford decided to offer the same engine under the hood: a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V-6 EcoBoost with 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. A very disappointing news for every Raptor fan out there.

Shelby however has the solution: its latest pack based on the new generation F-150 Raptor delivers no less that 525 horsepower. Still, way under the Ram 1500 TRX, but a lot better than a standard Raptor, right?

2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000

2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000

The quickest Shelby in history!

It’s been only four three model years since the sixth-generation Ford Mustang arrived in showrooms, and the pony has already spawned an impressive number of versions wearing the Shelby badge. Although the iconic GT500 has yet to be revived, Ford has already launched the GT350, the Super Snake, GT-H, and GTE, just to name a few. The GT500 may still be a year away, but sixth-gen Mustang, but Shelby just launched yet another performance model. This time around it’s the Shelby 1000, the brand’s most menacing creation in terms of output and straight-line speed.

The Shelby 1000 is closely related to the GT500, as the first model to wear this badge, launched in 2011, was based on the fifth-generation GT500. Offered in both street and 1000 S/C track versions, the first iteration of the car was discontinued in 2012. The 1000 returned in 2013, once again based on the GT500, but now with the 5.8-liter V-8 instead of the old 5.4-liter unit under the hood. Both the street package and the S/C track package were offered. Also available as an upgrade for the GT500, the package was discontinued in 2014, after only two years on the market. The new Shelby 1000 is the first such model based on the sixth-generation Mustang, so everything about it is new compared to previous iterations. Let’s have a closer look at the car in the review below.

2016 Shelby GTE

2016 Shelby GTE

Available with both EcoBoost and V-8 engines

In its first two years on the market, the Mustang has already received a handful of updates bearing the Shelby badge, including the GT350, GT, GT EcoBoost, and a revival of the iconic Hertz GT-H model. Come 2016, and Shelby launched a new nameplate, this time around featuring the "GTE" logo and offering a more diverse engine lineup, including the 2.3-liter EcoBoost, the naturally aspirated "Coyote" V-8, and a supercharged version of the latter.

Unveiled in December 2013, the sixth-generation Mustang introduced not only a new design language, but also a brand-new platform that features an independent rear suspension for the first time since the pony was launched in 1964. It also received a revamped interior with classic cues and an updated engine lineup that includes a turbocharged, 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. The sixth-gen car also became the first Mustang to be sold in European Ford dealerships.

Available for all Mustang built for the 2015 to 2017 model years, the GTE package can also be had on convertible models, a feature not offered with many other Shelby upgrades. But much like other Shelby models, it can be optioned up with several features, ranging from exterior elements to carbon-fiber panels and drivetrain components. Keep reading to find out more about what sets it apart from the standard Ford Mustang.

2016 Shelby Terlingua Mustang

2016 Shelby Terlingua Mustang

In 1965, a Shelby GT350-R driven by legendary Ken Miles won its debut race at the Green Valley Raceway in Dallas. Shelby’s win produced quite a stir, but so did the black-and-yellow logo of a rabbit holding its paw in the air. The logo belonged to Terlingua Racing Team, which went on to become an important name in motorsport in the 1960s, being used on several Mustangs, Cobras, and even Indy 500 and Le Mans winners.

As part of the group that, according to Bill Neale, "would go down to Terlingua to hang out, hunt deer, ride motorcycles, have some drinks and eat real well" long before the race team was put together, Carroll Shelby revived the Terlingua Mustang in 2007 by launching a limited-edition, V-6-powered Mustang wrapped in the famous black-and-yellow livery. It’s been nearly a decade since then, and the Terlingua Mustang returned once again as a spin-off of the sixth-generation pony.

Limited to only 50 units, the new Shelby Terlingua Mustang is based on the 2016 Mustang GT and, much like its predecessor, comes wrapped in a racing livery. As the base model suggests, this one is powered by a V-8, but the drivetrain has very little in common with the stock model, packing a supercharger, and a lot more power than you can get from a Ford dealership. Keep reading to find out more about that.

2016 Shelby GT EcoBoost Mustang

2016 Shelby GT EcoBoost Mustang

The Shelby name has been attached to a lot of different kinds of cars from different manufacturers and with different kinds of engines. But so far, Shelby Mustangs have all been powered by V-8s. Displacements and power outputs have varied by a lot, and some have been naturally aspirated while others have used forced induction, but it has always been a V-8. That all changes this year, as Shelby has just announced a Shelby GT package for the EcoBoost Mustang. The package will be available in North America, but it is intended to appeal primarily to customers in other parts of the world. This is why the car will make its first public appearance at the Goodwood Revival in the U.K., also marking the official European debut of Shelby International.

To a lot of Americans, the idea of a four-cylinder Shelby Mustang might seem blasphemous; but for those living in other countries, particularly in Europe, V-8 Mustangs may be out of reach due to huge price increases caused by tax and insurance regulations. The GT EcoBoost is therefore a way for Europeans to be able to buy a Shelby Mustang without having to pay near-supercar prices for it.

Shelby American Offers Free Katzkin Upgrades on Super Snakes To Those Who Had Their Hellcat Orders Canceled

Shelby American Offers Free Katzkin Upgrades on Super Snakes To Those Who Had Their Hellcat Orders Canceled

Among the most frustrating feelings in the world, at least for car enthusiasts, is to have placed an order for your dream car and been sure that your place in line was secure, only to have the manufacturer cancel your order. This happened to some 900 Dodge customers whose orders for one or other of the Hellcat models was canceled, with Dodge giving them a voucher for a 2016 model, meaning they have to get right back in line and wait. Knowing a business opportunity when they see one, Shelby American stepped up and offered a special promotion for these poor souls.

Shelby’s offer is that anyone who can provide proof that they had a Hellcat order canceled will be given a free upgrade to a Katzkin interior on an order of a 2015-2016 Shelby Super Snake. Katzkin is an aftermarket maker of custom leather interiors, generally offering more colors and combinations than what you’ll get from the manufacturer, and Shelby says the package is worth $2,995. That’s a pretty good deal, although the Super Snake will still cost you $54,995, plus the cost of a base Mustang GT. But then Hellcats aren’t exactly cheap either.

2015 Shelby Super Snake

2015 Shelby Super Snake

Legendary muscle-car tuning company Shelby has unveiled its latest Mustang-based Super Snake, and it’s got all the makings of a true American supercar, with up to 750 supercharged horsepower, a wide array of carbon-fiber aero enhancements, looks that kill, and tunable suspension upgrades that bless the best handling ‘Stang yet with even more cornering agility.

“When Shelby American introduced the 605-horsepower Super Snake in 2007, the car became an instant sensation,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American and co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International. “The new Super Snake is even better because the all new Ford Mustang is such a terrific platform for the iconic muscle car. By working closely with our partners at Ford Performance, Weld Racing, Michelin, Carbon by Design and Whipple and Kenne Bell superchargers, the 2015 Shelby Super Snake is an amazing car with world-class performance.”

Shelby left no stone unturned when upgrading the Mustang, and the result is impressive, to say the least. However, with so much hot American muscle-car iron available these days, how will it stack up against the competition?

Shelby is well known for tuning some of the fastest Mustangs on the planet, but the company founded by Mr. Carol himself also dabbles in trucks as well. Meet Shelby’s latest performance package for the 2011-2014 Ford F-150 Raptor.

2013 Shelby Raptor

2013 Shelby Raptor

Though Ford decided not to offer any big unveilings at the 2013 New York Auto Show, Shelby American came with a tuning kit based on one of its pickups, the 2013 Ford SVT Raptor. The kit adds enhanced power and handling, and a specially designed exterior and interior.

Shelby installed a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger onto the standard 6.2-liter V-8 engine in the Raptor and a new Shelby Stinger exhaust system. As a result, the engine’s output jumps from the standard and already awesome 411 horsepower up to a total of 575 horsepower. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox that transfers the power to all four wheels. Additionally, an "Off-Road" mode that calibrates the transmission, stability and traction control systems for optimal operation at high speeds off road.

The package includes a set of Shelby side fender heat extractors to keep the engine cool and make the truck look downright sweet. Also included for the exterior is your choice of one of three Shelby graphics packages – Traditional, Shelby Splash and Shelby Super Snake – so everyone knows that this isn’t any old SVT Raptor.

On the inside, the base kit comes with a custom interior that includes two-tone leather with contracting stitching, a serial numbered dashboard badge, and boost and fuel pressure gauges to make sure everything is within spec.

There are also a number of optional items you can add to the base kit, for a fee of course. First up is an optional set of customs wheels wrapped in 35-inch Goodrich All-Terrain tires, a Shelby roof-mounted light bar, front and rear Shelby-spec bumpers, a spare tire and bed-mounted spare tire carrier. More options are coming down the pipe soon.

The update package is priced starts at $17,995 – a relative bargain – and will be limited to only 100 units, so get to ordering.
