Shelby American announced its lineup for this year’s Tulsa Ford and Shelby festival, and it includes some properly hot Mustangs and Raptors. They are bringing the 624 HP Shelby GT/SC and 50th Anniversary Shelby FIA Cobra, as well as the 850 HP GT500 Super Snake and Shelby Raptor muscle truck.
This ultra-powerful lineup introduces the new 50th Anniversary FIA Shelby Cobra, details of which are yet to be revealed. Celebrating the 289 Ford powered roadsters from 50 years ago, Shelby American will build 50 limited edition Shelby 289 FIA Cobras. The car is painted “Viking Blue” with FIA stripes and roundels, features a black FIA interior, special billet anniversary badges, original style wheels and a variety of additional options.
The Raptor muscle truck is also an interesting spectacle, as it is undoubtedly going to be one of the fastest pickup trucks in America. You should also take a good look at the 850-hp Super Snake, based on the GT500, as it is one of the fastest and most powerful Mustangs in the world.
“Tulsa’s Mid-America is one of the most important enthusiast events of the year,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “Ford Motor Company and Shelby American unveiled the first generation Shelby GT convertible there in 2008 and now we’re returning with the ‘reborn’ version of that car. This event is the perfect opportunity to put our ultra-performance vehicles through their paces on the road circuit at Hallett and the Tulsa drag strip, then demonstrate how docile they are on the Thursday night downtown cruise in.”
