Prepare to drool at Classic Recreations’ supercharged GT500CR 900S Mustang

Prepare for some unwholesome car porn in the form of Classic Recreations’ GT500CR 900S, the latest and most powerful creation yet from the tuning shop. Though you may never have heard of CR, you’ve probably been acquainted with their work via previous models like the GT350CR and GT500 CR, both licensed continuation Shelby projects.

The 900S iteration takes things to a whole new level with over $25,000 in upgrades to the 1967 GT500 Shelby Mustang, including a 427 cubic-inch Ford Performance engine with a Procharger F1-R supercharger system that in tandem deliver over 800 horsepower. This particular example is headed to one very lucky customer in Germany straight from CR’s factory in Yukon, Oklahoma.

The list of parts is extensive, but some of the highlights include a carbon-fiber driveshaft, Fast XFI fuel injection system, 18-inch Forgeline Grudge wheels, 275 front and 335 rear BF Goodrich tires, Wilwood six-piston front and six-piston rear brakes, Magnaflow exhaust and a Detroit Speed full suspension system.

As a result of all this fine labor and parts, the GT500CR 900S is considerably quicker and easier to handle than its foundational GT500 was. In 1967, the Shelby GT500 made a stout 350 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, which meant 0 to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds. At the time, that was basically light speed. Now, a run-of-the-mill Ford Mustang GT can best that figure.

The topic of resto-modfication is a contentious one. Some purists say modifying a classic is tarnishing what the vehicle represented while others say bringing modern performance to classic styling is a dream come true. We say both camps are right in certain instances, but it’s hard not to love that iconic fastback shape, wider tires than a Belaz 75710 dump truck and smoother looks than an SR-71 Blackbird.

Classic Recreations hasn’t said what the GT500CR 900S sold for, but we’d wager at least a handful of Hellcats worth of cash.
