A limited-edition Carroll Shelby Signature Series is now on offer in South Africa and only 3 are available!
For those wanting the ultimate muscle car in South Africa, this may be it. Shelby South Africa has announced that 3 Carroll Shelby Signature cars will be offered locally. Only 50 units are available worldwide with the majority of the allocation reserved for the North American market.
Each car will be entered into the official Shelby Registry, ensuring authenticity, and the conversions will be done at Shelby SA’s official Mod Shop in the Western Cape.
The Carroll Shelby Signature Series has been developed over 2 years and each car features a new aluminium fender that widens the body to accommodate the one-piece forged monoblock wheels and MagneRide suspension. A new Brembo braking system with 6 piston calipers up front and 4 at the rear ensure notable stopping power and additional cooling channels for the brakes were also exclusively developed by Shelby.
Perhaps the most tantalising development has taken place under the bonnet where the 5.0-litre V8 engine gains an Edelbrock supercharger which takes total power output to 597 kW! The sound of the powerful V8 is personified with the fitment of a Borla exhaust system with 4 custom exhaust tips.
Other eye-catching bits include a metallic ram air hood, spoiler, diffuser and a new tail panel between the rear lights.
On the inside, Shelby branding is on the door mats and door sills as well on the Shelby guages. Elsewhere, Shelby branding is also seen on the radiator cap, coolant tank and oil cap. Customers can also remove the rear seat and replace it with a harness bar, if you so wish.
How much does the Carroll Shelby Signature Series cost you ask? Well, you will have to fork out R2 708 000 to have one, but you better move fast because there are only 3…
