To celebrate 55 years of collaboration, Shelby American created a Carroll Shelby Signature Edition version of the 2015-2020 Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R.
Shelby GT350SE features aggressive handling, styling and other enhancements
100 of each Carroll Shelby Signature Edition package will be available per model year worldwide through Shelby American
Each car includes a donation to the Carroll Shelby Foundation
“First 15” offer includes special access and perks
The GT500SE Signature Series is the first program for the current generation GT350/GT350R by Shelby American, the Shelby GT350SE features a more aggressive handling package, sporty interior, stripes, special wheels, performance tires and functional styling elements. The 2020 model cars will wear a unique anniversary badge while 2015-2019 cars will have a standard one. Limited to only 100 per model year, each Shelby GT350SE’s Shelby serial number will be documented in the official Shelby American Registry. The sale of each GT350SE benefits the Carroll Shelby Foundation. It also includes membership in Team Shelby, the club that Carroll Shelby established in 2008.
While the Shelby GT350 and its “R” model stablemate have been available since 2015, this is the first program for the car by Shelby American.
“The 1965 Shelby GT350 was the first Mustang-based car that Shelby American and Ford Motor Company created together,” said Patterson. “To celebrate 55 years of collaboration, we created the Shelby GT350SE with a more aggressive handling package, sporty interior, stripes, special wheels, performance tires, and several functional styling elements. The 2020 model cars will wear a unique anniversary badge while 2015-2019 cars will have a standard one. The Shelby GT350SE package is affordable, distinctive and includes the coveted Shelby serial number.”
The sale of each Signature Edition car benefits the Carroll Shelby Foundation, which was established by Carroll Shelby. The Foundation provides medical assistance for those in need, including children, educational opportunities for young people through automotive and other training programs and benefitting the Shelby Automotive Museum.
“The Carroll Shelby Foundation was very important to my grandfather, so I’m proud that cars bearing his personal signature will directly benefit his charity,” said Aaron Shelby, Co-President of the Carroll Shelby Foundation. “Because Carroll cared so deeply about enthusiasts, each car includes membership in Team Shelby, the club he established many years ago. We believe that Team Shelby is the heart of the Shelby community and the Carroll Shelby Foundation is its soul.”
Shelby American is offering a “First 15” incentive that includes special perks if a current generation Shelby GT500 or Shelby GT350 owner reserves their Signature Edition car by August 14, 2020.
