Shelby introduces tributary Terlingua Mustang with over 750 horsepower

Shelby American has introduced another special edition Mustang, this time in honor of the Terlingua Racing Team that won the Trans Am Championship in 1967.

Based on the 2016 Ford Mustang GT, the Terlingua edition gains a long list of upgrades with the end result being an output of over 750 horsepower (the same output as the 2015 GT500 Super Snake). The Mustang’s exterior is enhanced with carbon fiber elements, including a front splitter, side skirts, a rear spoiler, and hood. There’s also a mesh grille insert, Terlingua Racing Team badges, a yellow paint scheme, and 20-inch WELD racing wheels.

Inside, there’s a short throw shifter, special racing seats with more TRT badging, and an autographed plaque with signatures from Carroll Shelby, TRT’s founder Bill Neale, and the 1967 Trans Am Championship driver Jerry Titus.

At its heart, the Shelby Terlingua packs a 5.0-liter V8 engine combined with a Whipple supercharged that brings output far beyond the regular Mustang GT’s 435 horses. Additional performance upgrades includes a Borla stainless steel exhaust, adjustable coilover suspension, Eibach sway bars, Ford Performance half-shafts and a Brembo big brake kit (pretty essential when there’s 750+ horsepower to contain).

Only 50 examples of the Shelby Terlingua Mustang will be produced with prices starting at $65,999 – plus the cost of the donor Mustang GT (so more like $100,000 when all’s said and done).

While you could run out at pick up a Dodge Charger/Challenger SRT Hellcat with near the same power for just the price of the Terlingua’s modifications, Shelby’s offering will be even more rare.

On the other end of the spectrum for the Mustang, there’s the latest GT350R Mustang, with a whole lot less power, but all the ingredients to make it one of the most track-capable street legal machines on the market. It becomes a lot more attractive when you factor in its $64,000 starting price, too.
