The legend that is the Shelby GT500

Their are many cars that seem to live on forever and still hold our imagination years after leaving production, this can be said for the legend that is the Shelby GT500. The GT500 is one of the best known from the Shelby stable and is very evocative of the era in which it became a working class hero.
We have some recent new work with the Shelby using the mountains of Switzerland as our backdrop for this extraordinary car that still lives on today and is admired by so many people the World over.
A fitting tribute in many ways following the recent death of Carroll Shelby, a passionate man that changed the face of muscle car history.

In 1964, Carroll Shelby was asked to enhance the performance of the new Ford Mustang, and the legendary GT350 was born. Initially just for racing, the 1965 GT350 R Model began its dominance on American racing circuits and making a name for itself by winning the SCCA B production championship in 1965, 1966 and 1967.

Ford wanted to put a version on the street known as the GT350 The GT350 was essentially a de-tuned and reworked R Model and it catapulted Mustang into the world of high performance. It became one of the most popular and recognizable brands in the automotive industry. The performance evolution continued with the famed king of the road, the GT500.
