Shelby American to Build 750HP Centennial Edition Mustang in Honor of 100th Anniversary of Carroll Shelby’s Birth

Shelby American is honoring the 100th anniversary of its founder’s birth with a small run of Centennial Edition Mustangs. Only 100 of the 2023 model year supercharged Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Mustangs will be available through Shelby American in Las Vegas, with a few available through official mod shops around the world. A prototype will be unveiled in Gardena, California, on Saturday, January 14 at 10 AM PST and the production version will be introduced at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“This new, limited-edition car celebrates Carroll Shelby and honors his many achievements,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief of R&D. “To properly honor him required us to build a car that was truly born to run. Our new Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Mustang is a well-balanced car that is far more than just a horsepower upgrade. We also sharpened the handling and enhanced the styling of the world-class 5.0L V8 Mustang GT. It delivers all the performance that Carroll required to have his name on a car. We’re so confident that he’d approve that we are throwing in a black Stetson like the one he wore, with each car.”

Based on the spectacular 2023 Ford Mustang GT, the new Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Mustang is different from the Shelby Super Snake. Enthusiasts can choose a fastback or convertible with either a manual or automatic transmission. As a post-title program, any stock Ford Mustang color is accepted. Only 100 of the 2023 Centennial Edition Mustangs will be built by Shelby American in Las Vegas with a handful transformed by international mod shops. Consumers with a qualifying Ford Mustang GT can arrange to have their cars transformed by Shelby American or an official Shelby mod shop. The package includes a black Stetson hat and a copy of the commemorative Shelby Centennial Book published by Team Shelby.
