RIP Carroll Shelby
Sad news: the American automotive legend and king of muscle has passed away at the age of 89
Posted: 12 May 2012
We took a drive in an early Super Snake demonstrator and were impressed with the fit, finish and all-round performance and handling. A Shelby American Mustang isn’t just a standard car with some extra stripes, a big blower and a new set of wheels.
The guys work on every aspect of the car, from the engine to the chassis, from the brakes to the bodywork. And rather than roughing up the Shelby GT500’s character, the Shelby car felt tighter, more eager to change direction. And monumentally more powerful. We’d like to live with one on road and track for a few days before pronouncing fully on it, but, on the strength of the drive we had, it works.
