Shelby Vehicles: Coming in 2013

posted 12/18/2012 by Gary Patterson

2013 is going to be an exciting time at Shelby American. We have lots of new things coming your way, and I’m happy to share some of those details with you today.

We have a wide body option on the 2013 Super Snake- a concept you’ll be able to see at the Detroit Auto Show in January. This will allow you to put a lot of tire on the car, allowing you to put a 345 or even a 355 wide tire on the back.

We will also offer the wide body option for all the 2005 to 2009 mustangs, which is great for those of you who have that model year of Super Snake or Mustang GT you can send it down to Shelby and make it a wide body.

Also in 2013, the GTS which is available with a V6 or a V8 you can get for ten or twelve thousand dollars you can have yourself a serial numbered Shelby and then you can build it up over time. The GTS is a lot of people’s first Shelby and we take an extreme amount of pride in that vehicle.

And of course, we still have the GT350, the rock star of the racetrack which you can purchase in all factory colors in both coupe and convertible configurations.

2013 will be a big year for Shelby as we unveil projects in Detroit and in New York- so get ready! While I can’t talk about any Detroit details now, I will quote Carroll from last year.

“I think you're going to see the industry going completely to small engines with turbochargers. That's the only way you can get the mileage that the government is going to be demanding.”

Shelby American will be involved in a lot of shows and events coming up in 2013 and I will be talking about those next week, so stay tuned… and smile, dammit.
