For years, the most performance, radical and (why not say it) desired variants of the Ford Mustang have always been associated with the surname Shelbyan American manufacturer known primarily for the wild roadster Cobra from the 60s. As we told you four years agothe electric Mustang Mach-E will be no exception.
Shelby will launch the transformation pack next July at a price of 24,900 euros, to which we would have to add the cost of the Mustang Mach-E GT itself, which in our country costs a whopping 86,262 euros. In other words, the Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT will go to 111,162 euros, little more than what Tesla asks for a Model S AWD (104,990 euros).
The pack, which curiously will only be offered to European customers, It will be available as a limited edition of 100 copies. to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Caroll Shelby. Any Mustang Mach-E GT produced after 2021 will be able to mount it; plus, a one-year membership to Team Shelby will be included. On the other hand, customers will be able to document their unit in the Official Shelby Registry,
“We chose to initially offer the Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT only in Europe because electric vehicle sales are growing much faster there than in the United States. And from 2016 to 2021, the number of public charging stations increased by 431% across Europe.”Explain Aaron Shelbymember of the board of directors of Carroll Shelby International.
The Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT will not receive significant mechanical changes
The Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT is distinguished at a glance from its Ford sibling by the use of numerous parts made of carbon fiber (hood, grille, splitter front, skirts, mirrors…), as well as the use of some specific vinyls. Another differential detail is the sound system developed with Borla, which will be synchronized with the car to emit a roar similar to that of a V8 gasoline engine.
Although the suspension has been modified to improve the dynamic behavior of the vehicle, the truth is that the mechanics have not changed in the slightest. Therefore, the propulsion system continues to be made up of two engines capable of performing 487 PS (358 kW) and 860 Nm. However, thanks to its lower weight, the 0-100 km/h possibly improves compared to the current 4.4 seconds. Something similar could happen with autonomy, which in the standard GT remains at 490 km WLTP.
