Ford Shelby GT Driving Experiences
The car that revived the Shelby nameplate, the Ford Shelby GT began production in 2007 and is the fifth iteration of the famous Ford Mustang. The Shelby, a car steeped in history and heritage, but with a forward thinking approach to engineering and power through its 5.0 litre V8 engine, is now available for you to book for driving experiences at many great locations across the UK with TrackDays.
Information About the Ford Shelby GT
Reactivating the Shelby name and branding for the 21st century, the Ford Shelby GT was first unveiled in 2007, as the successor to Ford’s Mustang SVT Cobra model. But whilst this may seem to share a lot in common just on looks alone with the Mustang V6 and GT, there is more to this muscle car than meets the eye.
At 1778 kg, and a torque of 631 lbs ft, it is considerably more bulkier and tougher than its forerunners, which of course allows it to have more traction and better handling out on the track. But when you realise what this mean machine is running on, that’s a very good thing indeed.
Chiefly, it houses a whopping 5.0 litre V8 engine under the bonnet, powering out 420 bhp. It allows it to clock up some jaw dropping speed stats, with acceleration from 0 - 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, and it is capable of achieving top speeds of a super fast 202 mph.
Cool Facts About the Ford Shelby GT
With a distinct silver and blue racing stripe livery, the Ford Shelby GT we have available to book for driving experiences here on TrackDays is of course a nod to the very same model featured in the Need for Speed: ProStreet computer game, released by EA in 2007.
At several of our range of locations and venues around the UK, we offer our Ford Shelby GT Blast package, giving you a high octane 3 miles under the guidance of an expert instructor for as little as £49.
