Shelby American is promising that the Ford Mustang Shelby GT will be roaring into showrooms in 2019 with even more power and performance. The 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT will be available as either a fastback or convertible.

It seems that the Ford Mustang gets more popular every year and the high performance versions are in high demand. The 2019 Shelby GT will be back with a V-8 kicking out 480 horsepower or there is also a Ford Performance Supercharger available that will boost the Shelby GT’s horsepower to over 700.

Exclusive Shelby Features

The Shelby GT shows off Shelby’s modified hood, hood vents, stripes and other body modifications, like rocker panels and a spoiler. It also rolls on special Shelby wheels. Shelby vehicles also sport Carroll Shelby signature plates. Shelby American cooperated with Ford Performance on tweaking the suspension and maximizing the ride and handling without sacrificing any of the Mustang fun.

It can be ordered in any color that is available from Ford. Shelby will add special touches throughout the interior, like special embroidery on the seats and floor mats. One of the coolest things about owning a Shelby is that every Shelby GT will receive a special serial number and be listed in the official Shelby Registry.

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT can be ordered through select Ford showrooms. Drivers can choose either a 6-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Upgraded Heritage and Premium Packages

The Shelby GT will also be available with a special GT-H package and this time it doesn’t stand for Hertz, like in the old days when people raced the Hertz editions. This time the GT-H stands for Heritage or premium edition. The GT-H versions come in classic black and gold or white and gold paint schemes with upgrades like Ford Performance shocks and struts and even gold painted wheels.

The 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT starts at a MSRP of $61,345, while the Heritage and Premium editions sticker at $66,345. The Shelby GT comes with a 3 year/ 36,000 miles warranty.

Additional options include the Ford Performance Supercharger, leather interior and painted stripes.

No word on how the performance upgrades will impact the fuel economy. The 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT joins other high performance Mustangs like the 2019 Ford Bullitt Mustang and the Ford Shelby GT350. Many are also eagerly awaiting the highly anticipated 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
