This Carbon Shelby Mustang Hides An 810HP Coyote Engine Under The Hood

These days, Mustang restomods are a dime a dozen, with everyone from at-home hacks to professionally-commissioned customizers looking to get a piece of the Ford pony car pie. That being said, every once in a while there comes a build that’s truly in a league of its own. Just take this sweet 1967 Shelby GT500CR for instance.

After announcing the project late last May, Classic Restorations has finally unveiled the first of its painfully expensive GT500CRs. Developed as part of a collaborative effort with Speedkore, it features a full carbon fiber body that was designed to be an exact replica of the original — minus some 600lbs off its curb weight. And that’s not all — under the hood, it hides a 5.2-liter Coyote engine complete with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger, a potent combination that produces 810hp and 600lb-ft of torque. Add to that a 10-speed paddle-shift transmission, Detroit Speed suspension, JRI coilovers, and some 18-inch Forgeline wheels, and you have a recipe for total tire-slaying destruction. With an interior clad in Alcantara, leather, and custom red Shelby gauges, it’s truly a sight to behold. The base model will run you $265,000, with a special edition available for a further $33,000.

Purchase: $265,000+
