To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Carroll Shelby’s birth, Shelby American has unveiled a limited run of the Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Mustang, a tribute to the legendary automotive designer’s lasting impact on the world of high-performance vehicles. Based on the 2023 Ford Mustang GT, this supercharged marvel is more than just a tribute; it’s a testament to Shelby’s vision of creating cars that excel on both the street and the racetrack.

The Shelby American team has meticulously enhanced the already impressive 5.0L V8 Mustang GT to create a car that’s not only powerful but also beautifully balanced in terms of handling and styling. Each of these special edition Mustangs will come with a unique touch – a black Stetson hat, akin to the one Carroll Shelby famously wore, and a copy of the Shelby Centennial Book published by Team Shelby, adding a personal and historical significance to each vehicle.

In a statement, Gary Patterson, President of Shelby American, emphasized the importance of this project, “Properly celebrating Carroll Shelby’s many achievements required us to build a vehicle that could allow a driver to dominate on both the street and track. Our new Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Mustang is a well-balanced car designed with that mission in mind.”

With a production limited to just 100 units, these cars are expected to be highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts alike. The demand was evident as all 100 allocations quickly sold out. However, the Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) is offering a rare opportunity through its 2023 Sweepstakes for Serial Number 100 of this limited production run.

By donating to the SAAC, participants will be entered into a draw to win this collector’s dream car. This sweepstakes is more than just a chance to own a unique piece of automotive history; it’s a fundraiser supporting the Shelby American Automobile Club, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the history and achievements of Carroll Shelby and the cars created at Shelby American from 1962 to 1970.
