    2015 Shelby GT Bows In Scottsdale With 627 Supercharged Ponies

    Between the base V6, the EcoBoost turbo four, the eight-cylinder GT, the monstrous GT350 and the new GT350R (to say nothing of transmission and convertible options), muscle-car enthusiasts have a staggering array of Mustangs to choose from. And now there's one more as Shelby American has introduced the new 2015 Shelby GT.

    Building off the success of the 2007 Shelby GT and the 2013 follow-up, the new 2015 model was just introduced at the Ford booth at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, AZ. It's based on the latest Mustang GT (whether factory fresh or commissioned from an owner's existing pony car) but upgrades with an enviable list of enhancements from Ford Racing Performance Parts, Shelby's own upgrades and top-shelf third-party components.

    For starters, the engine is supercharged up to 627 horsepower (with over 700 available through further upgrades). It's got 3.73 gears, a Borla exhaust, WELD Racing wheels, Michelin tires and Wilwood six-piston front brakes. Visual enhancements include a carbon-fibre body-kit (including a two-piece rear diffuser) and billet aluminum front grilles.

    Designed from the get-go to be sold around the world, the 2015 Shelby GT is certified for use in all 50 states and comes with a Shelby American CSM number registered in the company's registry, but all those enhancements don't come cheap: Shelby's charging US$39,995 for the new GT, and that's just for the modifications. Add that to the $36,999 sticker price to buy a Mustang GT donor car in Canada and you're looking at nearly $80k – which is not only more than Ford itself is expected to charge for its own GT350, but also more than the $63,995 for a Dodge Challenger Hellcat in Canada.
