2005 Shelby Mustang CS6
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 2 – At the 2005 SEMA show Shelby International announces the new Shelby CS 6 Mustang vehicle, a modified V6-engined 2006 Ford Mustang dubbed the CS 6.
The CS 6 features a Shelby-exclusive Paxton NOVI-1200 Centrifugal Supercharger based on Paxton’s race-proven gear case, helical-cut gears constructed from billet-steel, quality high-speed bearings and an air/water charge cooler. The CS 6 will be one of the most powerful supercharger kits for the V6 Mustang available on the market and its 350+ HP is a significant increase over the 210 HP of the stock Mustang and the GT version.
In 1965, Carroll Shelby fitted a prototype Paxton Supercharger to the GT350 starting the Shelby/Paxton relationship. Eleven total Paxton supercharger kits were installed by the Shelby factory and a number of additional kits were sold to customers for retro installation. The CS 6 stands poised to continue the great Shelby/Paxton tradition of producing consummate performance-modified autos.
The Shelby CS 6 is racing-styled in the custom of great Shelby cars from the past but updated to create a unique and modern design. Among the interior and exterior modifications to the CS 6:
* Custom hood * Custom brakes * Custom 20″ American Racing wheels * Shelby Automobiles badging
Available in the first part of 2006, the Shelby CS 6 will be sold through Shelby Automobiles Las Vegas headquarters and a national dealer network.
