Based on the pre-refreshed S550 Mustang GT, the Shelby 1000 makes a claimed 1,000 hp from a Whipple-supercharged 5.2-liter Aluminator V-8. The internal components have been swapped out, with a new 90-degree crank and modified cylinder heads from the GT350. It also gets other additions like a high flow fuel system, a new intercooler, upgraded transmission, and a modified ECU to help the engine handle that extra power.

This Early Shelby GT350 Mustang Is An Original $575k Time Capsule

  This Early Shelby GT350 Mustang Is An Original $575k Time Capsule It's an early-build 1965 model that is absolutely gorgeous. Whether you consider it a muscle car or Pony car, the 1965 Shelby GT350 Mustang is as iconic as it is rare. That is, an original Shelby is rare – few cars are cloned as often as Shelby Mustangs, so while you’ve probably seen them at auto shows, odds are they’re standard Mustangs wearing Shelby attire. That’s because only 562 1965 Shelby GT350s were built all total, including prototypes and the race-only R models. At the end of the day, just a little over 500 were actually built for street use.© Motor1.

Don't think the Shelby 1000 is just about adding more power, though. The company says it's modified the rest of the car to make sure it can corner just as well as it can accelerate."We do far more than just add horsepower and cosmetics to the Shelby 1000," said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American's head of development. "We replace every major component to create the ultimate track machine. The result is a car that will slice through corners and blast down straights with amazing ease."

Appearance-wise, it gets a redesigned front end, a new hood, modified fenders, and new rear-quarter panels. The car has also been widenedin both the front and rear, not simply for looks but also for handling. Shelby also added an adjustable coil-over suspension, larger Brembo brakes, a diffuser and sports exhaust, and wider wheels and tires.

"The 2012 through 2014 model year Shelby 1000 was based on the 5.8L Ford Shelby GT500, and while we significantly altered the suspension, it was best suited for the drag strip," said Gary Patterson, head of Shelby American. "The new Shelby 1000 is an entirely different car designed to be the ultimate road course warrior."

"Since Ford dropped the solid axle rear end, we had to take an entirely new approach," said LaViolette. "Not only did we build strength into the car with components like heavy-duty half-shafts and CV joints, we revised the entire suspension by using tubular adjustable upper and lower control arms, as well as fully adjustable coilovers. We then added 10- and 12-inch [wide] forged wheels with sticky 20-inch rubber to maximize traction with this high level of power."
