Ford Shelby GT500 Cobra 2013, homenaje un Shelby Carroll ford 2013

Tuesday, August 21, 20121comments

One of the icons of the automotive world, has been Carroll Shelby. A History of the American manufacturer, you do not doubt that one day I can get to Hollywood, and such is the admiration that there are and have been in the automotive world, that are slowly emerging the various tributes to Carroll Shelby. And today we bring you a very special, because Ford has decided to build a Shelby Cobra GT500 2013 with no less than 850 hp. A thoroughbred on a turbo V8 engine developed by Ford Racing and paying tribute to a figure who was always an inspiration to all friends Shelby and Ford.

Only three months have passed since the death of Carroll Shelby, and their memories are still enduring. That is why in addition to this new model, Ford has already announced it will rename a street of Product Development Center in Dearborn, Michigan. And is that Carroll Shelby earned it the hard way over the last 60 years working in the creation of Ford vehicles, such as the Cobras, Mustangs and the legendary GT40. A job that never ceased, even at age 89, shortly before his death. But the novelty of today is more passionate.

As if it were magic, this year several factors coincide, as it is the 50th anniversary of the original Shelby Cobra Carroll Shelby himself also wanted to make the FORD 2013 Shelby GT500 Cobra in a full-blown. And here is the interpretation of the original designer. A real beast of no less than 850 hp V8 engine with the exclusive turbo 4.0 liter Whipple, developed by Ford Rancig. But to transfer the power to the rear wheels, the tires have been sobredimensiondadas. Thus the 20-inch rear wheels, have 13 inches wide to increase traction, while the front is also 20 inches but 10 inches wide.

Another element that recalls Carroll Shelby is that the body is finished in Guardsman Blue with Wimbledon White stripes adorning many of the Cobra made in the '60s. A special model for the family of Shelby, as acknowledged by the John Luft, president of Shelby American:

Carrol Shelby changed the world of high performance forever. He was very proud of the achievements of Shelby American, yet was very interested in the next car that we would build. The spirit of Carroll Shelby and influence can be seen in every modern vehicle we build, such as the widened rear body kit and hood integrated in the Shelby GT500 Cobra 2012 ".

Carroll was a philanthropist, was known for his support of various causes. In line with this spirit, the car will go on tour around the country, and at the end of it, will go to a special use, something that Carroll appreciate.

One of the best ways to update a model and pay tribute to its builder. Although if I may, I'm more of classic cars as the Classic Recreations GT500CR Convertible we saw recently. And that is how I like to do Route 66 with one of these mythical models of the 60/70. At least, Shelby's legacy will endure for many years. Or so I hope.
