Shelby Terlingua

2008 Ford Mustang Shelby Terlingua

Many people don’t even know what a Terlingua is, never heard of it. Well, I suggest you search the Internet for the “History of the Terlingua Racing team”. It is quite an interesting story. However the 2008 Shelby/Ford Terlingua is a special performance package mated to a V-6 engine that consists of:

  • Paxton Supercharger
  • Shelby gauge pod with a boost gauge
  • Borla side exhaust
  • Ford Racing suspension
  • Short throw racing shifter
  • Baer 6 piston brakes
  • American 20 inch razor wheels
  • 255/35 20 ” tires
  • Ford V6 rear deck spoiler
  • Sidescoops
  • Shelby alloy quarter window covers
  • Sequential taillights
  • Shelby hood pins
  • Black mesh grille
  • Shelby front facia
  • Shelby deep draw hood
  • Special flat black striping kit
  • Terlingua hood and fender logos
  • Shelby rocker sill heatshields
  • Shelby center hub covers
  • MOMO Terlingua racing seats
  • Terlingua floor mats
  • Terlingua Shift knob
  • Terlingua numbered dash plaque
  • Ford GT start button
  • Shelby numbered engine plate
  • 3.73:1 rear axle
  • Terlingua gas cover
  • Terlingua pedal covers
  • Terlingua engine covers
  • Shelby key chain

So, what does this mean? It simply means that if you are driving a light V6 car, you will be in a 4.0L V6 Shelby pushing 375 tire smoking horsepower. 0-60 times are 5.3 seconds and with the lighter front end, it handles better in the turns than an eight cylinder car. If you have a 2008 V6 Mustang and want to convert it to a Base package Terlingua, it will cost you about $8,000. To convert to the Performance package, the cost goes up to abut $19,000.
