American Shelby will present this year at the New York International Auto Show saloon, an enhanced version of the Ford Shelby GT500 model version, which offer and develops 1000 horsepower.
Since early this year, there were a lot of promises that it will be a battle of the horsepower between the big American brands, so that the dispute could not make exception for the American cars. Thus, American Shelby will unveil on April 5, 2012, at the New York International Auto Show, the most powerful Shelby ever produced. Carol Shelby and his team have created Shelby 1000, from a Ford Shelby GT500. They wanted a very good maneuverability, power and to brake a new level of performances in engines. Shelby 1000 will be offered in two versions: one for the circuit which will be called Shelby 1000 S / C and will have over 1100 horsepower and a street version of about 950 horsepower. According to John Luft, the American Shelby president, Carol Shelby is a visionary who pushed the boundaries to the live performance. He changed the whole team’s development for the new Shelby 1000. At the International Auto Show in New York 2012, the company celebrates 50 years since they introduced the first Shelby Cobra (CSX2000). So, this is another reason for the car to be placed at the stand of the American Shelby along with the new star of the company, Shelby 1000. For Carroll Shelby’s vision to become reality, engineers have taken a 5.4 liter V8 engine, of course from Ford. They opened and among others, have mounted pistons in November and changed the cooling system and have installed another compressor and a new exhaust system.
