LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Shelby
American
, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll
Shelby International Inc
. (OTC Pink:CSBI), will introduce the 750+
supercharged V8 Terlingua Racing Team® Shelby at Barrett-Jackson’s
Scottsdale Auction on Jan. 26, 2016. A limited number of the amazing new
Shelby performance cars will be built based on the 2015-16 Ford Mustang
GT, America’s best-selling sports car.


“We poured our most advanced racing and development efforts for the Ford
Mustang platform into our Terlingua Racing Team edition Shelby cars,”
said Joe
Conway
, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby
American. “Working closely with key partners like Ford Performance,
these exclusive cars represent the pinnacle of track-inspired
performance that we’ve built for the current generation of Mustangs.”

Ever since Shelby American introduced the highly sought after, limited
edition V6 Terlingua Mustang in 2006, fans of the Terlingua Racing Team
brand and eponymous jackrabbit logo have wondered when a V8 version
would be available. In cooperation with Bill Neale, one of the Terlingua
founders and Terlingua Racing Team crest designer, that wait is over.
Shelby American will build a total 75 (50 for the USA and 25
international) of 750+ horsepower Shelby Terlingua Racing Team Mustangs.

“The Terlingua Racing Team Crest has been part of racing lore since 1965
when a Shelby G.T.350R won its first race in Texas,” said Doug White,
Ford Performance Parts manager. “A Terlingua Racing Team Shelby then won
the 1967 Trans Am Series with Jerry Titus behind the wheel. That spirit
has returned. It’s thrilling that the new Terlingua Shelby uses some of
our most advanced technology to give those who value its rich heritage
an even more driver-focused experience.”

Last year, Ford introduced an entirely new Mustang that captured the
attention of enthusiasts worldwide. The sleek car has a powerful V8
engine, slick shifting 6 speed transmission, sophisticated independent
rear suspension and stylish interior. It was also designed for
international markets, giving more people the chance to enjoy genuine
American performance.

Shelby customers can choose to build their Terlingua on either the
manual or automatic transmission 2015-16 model year 5.0L V8 Mustang GT.

“We chose to develop the Shelby Terlingua using the bullet-proof 5.0L V8
engine in the Mustang GT based on the thousands of hours we spent in
product testing and development on the track,” said Akos Feher, Vice
President of Operations Shelby American. “The new Mustang GT is an
incredible platform that gives Shelby an opportunity to offer serious
enthusiasts even more performance wrapped in the iconic Shelby Terlingua
Racing Team banner.”

Specifications for the Shelby Terlingua build upon the exciting new
Shelby Super Snake. On top of the 750+ horsepower supercharged engine,
the Terlingua Shelbys will be built with racetrack-proven Ford
Performance half-shafts, short-throw shifters and Borla exhausts, as
well as exclusive Shelby by Eibach adjustable coil overs and sway bar,
Brembo brakes and updated, more aggressive carbon fiber exterior parts.

In honor of the Terlingua Racing Team legacy, all cars will carry an
autograph plaque of Bill Neale, Carroll Shelby and Jerry Titus, the 1967
Trans Am Champion winning driver.

“The Terlingua Racing Team was founded in the 1960s by a rough and ready
group who was as passionate about playing as we were about racing,” said
Bill Neale. “From our wild weekends on the Rio Grande in South Texas to
racetracks across the world, the Terlingua Racing Team took no
prisoners. The team crest and racing livery that I designed came to
symbolize that raucous, irreverent lifestyle that thumbed its nose at
the establishment.”

One of the key aspects of the new Terlingua Shelby is its flexibility.
Those who want to make it a track day racecar can add a host of upgrades
including a Barton short-throw shifter, Sparco race seats, 4-point
harness and a roll cage. It’s the perfect car to drive to the track in
style, lay down some fast laps and then drive home again.

“The development of the Terlingua represents a renewed emphasis on
race-inspired hot-rodding by Shelby American,” said Keith
Belair
, Shelby American Chief Operating Officer. “We expect to have
more of that to offer the Ford Mustang customers in the coming year.”

The Shelby Terlingua Racing Team Mustang starts at $65,999, not
including the base Ford Mustang GT. More information is available at www.Shelby.com,
