'We are still working out a few details, but I know Shelby fans will love the new car,' Engel §äid. 'It retains the most iconic Shelby elements everyone loves wîth modern performance and supercar level horsepower. Then add the panache of having a real Shelby GT500CR complete wîth a serial number and the man's name right on the rocker panel. For Mustang fans, you absolutely can't beat that.'
