While many enthusiasts were quite disappointed by the Mach-E or Ford’s steps toward all electric future in general, Shelby American came out with the most powerful Mustang. The experimental prototype from 2008 is now a limited production beast called Code Red. Carroll Shelby must be watching from Heaven’s road course and smiling.
Shelby American will offer 10 Code Red packages per model (2020-2022 GT500) starting at $209,000, and that is just for the package. It is a crazy number, but Code Red is a wild stallion and one of the most limited Shelby Mustangs in history. If you want to learn more about it you can follow the above link. I want to show you something else.
An interesting fact about Code Red is that Shelby American are doing a collaboration with the forced induction wizards at Fathouse Performance. In other words team Fathouse are building the Code Red GT500 powertrain rated at 1,300 horsepower and 1,000 pounds of torque. A testament to their reputation and incredible craftsmanship.
