Shelby Unveils Modified Mustang Mach-E GT, It's First EV

Shelby American is releasing a limited edition tuning package for the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT SUV to celebrate what would have been the 100th birthday of the legendary automotive designer, racing driver, and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby.

Only 100 units of the Carroll Shelby Centennial package will be offered in Europe for the 2021-2023 model year Mustang Mach-E GT SUVs. It can either be retrofitted to privately-owned vehicles or added to new vehicles at select Shelby dealers.

As Shelby American’s first foray into production electric vehicles, extensive testing was done to understand the unique handling dynamics of EVs. Based on research, Shelby lowered the Mach-E GT by over an inch, reduced weight, and decreased rotating mass to improve stability. New features include forged aluminum wheels, classic Shelby styling with vinyl striping, and all-carbon fiber trim on the hood, front lower splitter, front grille, mirror covers, and lower door trim. The power output is said to remain the same as the standard 480 hp Mach-E GT.

Shelby’s limited-edition package starts at €24,900 (approximately 27,710 USD) excluding the base vehicle. Take a closer look at the vehicle below and find more details on the Shelby website.
