Shelby 85th Commemorative GT40

In honor of Carroll Shelby’s 85th birthday, Shelby Distribution USA under the name from Shelby Licensing and partnership with Shelby Automobiles Inc. will introduce the three new Shelby American GT40® race cars. That achieved one of the greatest feats in American automotive racing history. The GT40 chassis is nearly the same replica of the original race car, all the way down to the steel roof.

The chassis weighing in over 12,000 pounds per degree is stiffer than any other chassis on the market. The engine’s car is called the Shelby 427FE V8. Nothing beats Shelby’s 85th birthday than the classics, featuring an original full independent suspension system.

Elite braking performance has been achieved through the vented Wilwood super brakes. The interior features a sporty racing atmosphere, having a pedal box, instruments and a 14-inch steering wheel. I would say that this car has been a favorite classic with its Shelby buyers.
