Shelby 50th Anniversary Edition Mustangs launched image

The 50th anniversary of Shelby is being celebrated by launching three limited editions of the iconic Ford Mustang, named the 50th Anniversary Edition Shelby GTS, GT350 and Super Snake.

“From the 800 horsepower Shelby Super Snake to the agile GT350 and the nimble GTS, each 50th anniversary Shelby is built to run. A 50-year anniversary only comes around once in life. These limited edition Shelbys will mark that milestone for a select few who have a chance to own a piece of history” noted Luft.

According to the car manufacturer, only 50 white and 50 black units of each special edition of the Shelby 50th Anniversary Edition will be made, and each of them will be “dressed” in gold stripes. Shelby says that the three special editions of the Mustang will come with six piston front brakes, special wheels, custom interiors, commemorative 50th anniversary badging and a unique VIN number, which will be entered into the Shelby American registry. Future owners of the Shelby 50th Anniversary Mustang will receive a museum delivery ceremony at the Shelby plant in Las Vegas.

This is all we’ve got for now on the Shelby 50th Anniversary Edition Mustangs and there’s no official word on the price tag yet. The Shelby 50th Anniversary Edition Mustangs have been officially presented to the public at the 2012 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
