The First-Ever Carbon Fiber Shelby Mustang GT500 Will Soon Be Available To Buy

There are few companies that can replicate the magic afforded by the original Mustang, and even fewer, still, that have the chops to create officially sanctioned continuation builds of the car. That makes Oklahoma-based manufacturer, Classic Recreations, all the more notable — and now, they’ve been consulted to bring the world’s first 1967 Shelby GT500CR Carbon Fiber Mustang to life.

Although Classic Recreations has taken on a hefty portion of restorative pony car projects over the years, this opportunity presented complexities that the lauded outfit wasn’t quite ready for. To achieve the full-fledged carbon build, they reached out to Speedkore Performance, a Wisconsin-based automotive company responsible last year’s notable Dodge Charger SEMA build, which also included an all-carbon shell. After 3D-scanning the bodywork of the company’s already-created GT500CR, Speedkore began to recreate the car’s various design elements with its in-house autoclave, resulting in immaculate weave alignment and hypercar-quality panels. Upon purchase, each body will be set atop an original Shelby GT500 steel tub and outfitted with a 365-horsepower, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, or a monstrous supercharged 7.0-liter V8 variant, securing well over 1,000-horsepower. If interested, you can expect to spend $214,000 for a base model, plus an additional $55,000 (painted carbon), or $60,000 (raw weave) out the door.

Purchase: $269,000+
