However, a number of consumers had begun questioning whether or not Carrol Shelby might have something else up his sleeve. While the GT350 was fast and relatively agile, it never embodied the degree of straight-line performance, for which many consumers were searching.

Known as the 1967 Shelby GT500, this powerhouse performer would captivate the minds of automotive enthusiasts the world over and would go on to hold a legendary place in automotive history.
