Ford Shelby GT coming in January 2007

Following the success of the rental Shelby GT-H Mustang developed for Hertz, Ford announced the creation of a retail version that will bear the name Shelby GT. The 4.6-liter, 325-horsepower Ford Shelby GT will occupy a niche between the Mustang GT and the Ford Shelby GT500 both in performance and appearance. It will only be offered as a coupe and in two exterior colors, Performance White or Black.

"We know the combination of Mustang and Shelby is magic, and we proved it again when we revealed the Ford Shelby GT-H. The car received such rave reviews that our dealers and customers asked for a version of their own," explained Mark Fields, Ford Motor Company Executive Vice President and President of The Americas. "We listened, and we're delivering"
