Shelby Automobiles recently announced plans to create their own line of performance parts. The new company, Shelby Performance Parts LLC, will offer a complete line of aftermarket parts to turn up the wick on 2005 and newer Ford Mustangs, Shelby GTs, and the Shelby GT500. Some of these components are what make up the "SuperSnake" for the Shelby GT500.
"Genuine Shelby parts will pump up the capabilities of any contemporary Ford or Shelby Mustang," said Amy Boylan, Shelby Performance Parts Co-Founder. "The aggressive suspension and engine packages are taken from lessons learned during development of Ford Shelby cars. Working with Scott Drake Enterprises, we developed components and packages that will power these cars to the front of the pack."
Performance parts packages will include newly developed enhancements to handling, styling and power of all current generation V6 and V8 Shelby and Ford Mustangs. On the performance side SPP will offer supercharger kits, large brake kits, and individual suspension components. Engine tuning options will range from 300 HP for the V6 Mustang that include a warranty to over 725 HP from the 5.4L V8 without a warranty. For looks there will be aftermarket hoods, and fascias exclusively designed at Shelby Automobiles, and for those looking to create replicas of the Shelby CS6, and 40th Anniversary GT500 there will be packages available.
"Our goal is to give enthusiasts more ways to enjoy their pony cars. By combining the experience at Scott Drake Enterprises with the performance expertise at Shelby Automobiles, we believe Shelby Performance Parts will become a hot spot for serious performance fanatics" said Scott Drake, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Shelby Performance Parts.
