2008 FORD SHELBY MUSTANG GT
Ford Mustang and Carroll Shelby bring open-air excitement to the road for the 2008 model year, as the Ford Shelby GT returns with a new convertible body style and a new standard color combination. Like all Shelby Mustang models, production will be limited to assure exclusivity for collectors.
Like all Mustang convertibles, each Shelby has supplemental bracing to give the car additional stiffness. The Shelby team also adds a stylish light bar. For 2008, a new Shelby paint combination of Vista Blue with Silver stripes is available.
The 2008 Shelby Mustang convertible models sport 18-inch polished wheels with high-performance 235/50ZR18 BF Goodrich gForce tires to maximize the suspension upgrades.
Shelby GT models are assembled at the AutoAlliance International assembly plant in Flat Rock, Mich., before being shipped to the Shelby Automobiles facility in Las Vegas for transformation.
The engine is upgraded with a Ford Racing Power Upgrade Package to increase output of the 4.6-liter V-8 to 319 horsepower and 330 lb.-ft. of torque. A high-flow exhaust system with X-pipe crossover offers better power delivery and a throaty V-8 exhaust note. Shelby GT comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission featuring a Hurst short-throw shifter. A five-speed automatic transmission is optional.
