Shelby’s Widebody Kit Is Here To Transform Your Ford Mustang S-550

Following its global premiere at the SEMA Show last year, Shelby’s widebody package for the sixth-gen Mustang has officially launched.

Available directly from Shelby and its many authorized modification shops worldwide, the widebody package is much more than a simple set of flared wheel arches.

Instead, the new arches, which add 4 inches to the rear track and 2.5-inch at the front, have been paired with optional adjustable coilover suspension, beefed up brakes, hardened wheel studs, stronger spindles and hubs, as well as a set of new wheels and tires. What’s more, the package includes the front spindle, front hub bearings, control arms, lateral links, and tie rod ends from the almighty Mustang GT350.

Of these available parts, it is the coilovers that are sure to most excite Mustang owners. Developed by Penske, the new suspension allows users to adjust ride height, independent compression, and rebound. Consequently, owners will have all the adjustments necessary to create a supple and forgiving road car as well as a performance monster tuned for the track.

Owners of the 2015 and later Shelby GT350 can order the complete catalog of modifications for $18,995. For regular 2015 and later Mustang owners, that price rises to $26,995. Owners of 2015 and later Shelby Super Snakes can get the kit for $22,995.

    Looks great but the price is too high.

    • Yeah and the news baffled me, it says the coilover is optional, are you saying the $22k package hasn’t include that?

      But again it’s Shelby, so they will milk his name as long as they can.

    Can’t say I like the color, but the execution, otherwise, looks spot on. Well done Ford/Shelby.

    • Just provide a bit of FYI, Ford has nothing to do with this, this is purely third party modification.

      • Paul Webster

        Without the Ford Mustang, Shelby would have nothing to market. If you believe Shelby or other 3rd party vendors would come up with this on their own… I have a bridge for sale. For you special price.

          Shelby did come up with this on their own. That’s why it’s sold through shelby not Ford.

        • I know what you meant, but basically what they do is just take a white body car and then modified it and give their own VIN.

        It is but it’s Carroll Shelby’s company so you are buying a big helping of authenticity.

        • Ehhhh, yeah I mean they always saying “Shelby VIN” and all other gimmicks but really not for me.

  • Zandit75

    Love it! Not sure about the hood though. It looks a little tall and bloated.
