Your thirst for an overpowered ‘Stang that could kick you in the back of your head when you least expect it has just been quenched, thanks to the Shelby Terlingua Mustang.
This is not the first automobile to carry Terlingua’s Racing Team logo on it, as the last car to display the jackrabbit emblem was a limited edition, V6-powered Ford Mustang model, back in 2007. Mind you, the history between Ford and Terlingua has more than one layer, as this latest model is built as a tribute to the team and their 1967 Trans Am Championship.
Only 50 2015-16 Shelby Terlinguas will be built, so you’ll need act fast in order to get your hands on one. Pricing starts at $65,999 and it doesn’t include the base Mustang GT, but for that kind of money you’ll get a Whipple supercharger mated to the 5.0-litre V8 – which will squeeze out 750 horses from the mill – Shelby by Eibach sway bar and adjustable coil overs.
On top of that expect some Ford Performance upgrades, such as half-shafts, a short throw shifter and an aggressive sounding Borla Exhaust with black tips. A Brembo big brake kit makes sure the car stops in time, while the 20-inch Weld racing wheels, and “tons” of Shelby-designed carbon fiber components make the Mustang appear like a distinctive Terlingua Racing Team machine.
All cars come with an autograph plaque of Bill Neale (a Terlingua founder and designer of the racing team crest) Carroll Shelby and Jerry Titus, the 1967 Trans Am Champion winning driver.
