To celebrate Shelby’s 50th anniversary, Carroll Shelby and the powers that be wanted to do it in high-horsepower style. Initially, the powers that be thought Carroll would be happy with the 800 HP Super Snake, but it was said that after his first drive, he asked when a 1,000 HP version would be made: hence, the Shelby 1000. This particular Shelby 1000 was built for David Yurman—the world-famous jewelry designer—whose creations include the Shelby wristwatch. One of only 20 produced, it is the last Shelby product built with Carroll Shelby’s input. While it’s easy to think it’s simply a modified Super Snake with 1,000 HP, nothing could be further from the truth. The amount of engineering and development that went into the Shelby 1000 is astonishing. New subframes of chromoly were installed and linked front-to-back and side-to-side to create a majorly tolerant chassis to begin with; the work goes on and on. No Mustang was ever meant to handle 1,000 HP, so Shelby worked feverishly to ensure that the Shelby 1000’s foundation could support the power. This car has traveled a scant 968 miles from new and features a supercharged 5.4L/1,000 HP V-8 engine mated to a 6-speed transmission. Inside, leather Recaro seats offer supportive comfort and the rear seat has been removed. Wilwood brakes behind satin black 20-inch Shelby 1000 forged wheels help tame the speed in short order. Few names are as synonymous with performance as Shelby, and the Shelby 1000 is a fabulous legacy for him to have departed on. With a top speed of 200 MPH, it’ll find 60 MPH from zilch in just 4 seconds, and it’ll take on pretty much any curve you throw at it and come out the other side as flat as a pool table. For those seeking the ultimate performance Shelby, this is it.

This is one heck of a ride. One to watch
These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby
