Early in the new millennium, Shelby paid homage to the Terlingua Race Team, by producing a tribute car decked out in the team’s traditional livery. However, this Mustang only came equipped with a V6, powerplant, to the dismay of many. In the years since, Mustang fans have repeatedly called for the release of a new Terlingua tribute, this time motivated by V8 power. In 2016, those calls were answered, as Shelby American unveiled their latest version of the Terlingua Mustang, complete with Ford “Coyote” 5.0-liter V8. Though only 50 units were produced for sale in North America, the tribute received a significant amount of fanfare.
