Las Vegas – June 29, 2012 – Shelby Performance Parts, a division of Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., (CSBI.PK) has introduced several new parts to add style and performance to the 2007-2012 Shelby GT500, 2011-2012 Shelby GT350, and the 2005-2013 Mustang and 5.0 Mustang. The fresh product group features a new Shelby Track Pack suspension system that will dramatically increase every aspect of handling performance for 2005-2012 Shelby or Mustang chassis. The lineup also includes Shelby GT500 Shift Knobs, Shelby GT500 Super Snake Shift Knobs, Shelby GT350 Engine Coil Covers and Shelby 5.0L Engine Coil Covers.
“Shelby Performance Parts enables current model Mustang or Shelby owners to customize their ride for great looks as well as high performance,” said John Luft, president of Shelby American. “The parts group offers pieces engineered and designed to put our customers car lengths ahead of the pack.”
The Shelby Track Pack system is designed to balance the weight of the car from the Mustang V6 up to the mighty Shelby GT500. The full coil-over conversion kit features single adjustable custom valve inserts for the front and rear, and specific spring rates that can be easily customized to suit different driving styles. The full track pack includes rear control arm systems, rear coil-over shocks, front struts with integrated caster camber plates, as well as a trick watts link that incorporates a new higher capacity differential cover, and all the linkage and brackets needed for installation.
“The 2005 Mustang featured dramatic improvements in chassis rigidity and handling performance over previous generation cars” added Robert Lane, director of Shelby Performance Parts. “However, it is still a uni-body with considerable body roll when flying through the corners. Our brand new Shelby Track Pack is a complete suspension make-over that will give customers impeccable handling performance.”
To complete the Shelby look on the interior, Shelby Performance Parts offers these brand new Shelby GT500 Shift Knobs in a multitude of color and stripe options. These high-quality shift knobs are made from resin, not painted, and sport the famous Le Mans racing stripe as well as the legendary Cobra Snake logo on each side facing straight ahead.
If you have a Super Snake sitting in the driveway Shelby Performance Parts has you covered as well with the Shelby GT500 Super Snake Shift Knobs. These knobs are also available in several colors and all feature the triple Super Snake stripe in black, with the Super Snake Cobra logo on both sides facing forward.
The Shelby GT350 Engine Coil Covers and Shelby 5.0L Engine Coil Covers will bring some shine to your engine bay by replacing the stock plastic coil covers with these high quality steel covers. The covers are chrome plated then have the logo masked and powder coated in either a red, blue, or black wrinkle finish. After the masking is removed, the logo shines in the bright chrome finish. The GT350 coil cover has “GT350 Powered by Shelby” proudly across its face and the 5.0L coil cover has the famous Shelby race track logo. Both sets of coil covers come with gaskets already installed for a quick and easy installation.
