Shelby GT500CR Venom. 790Hp. Unrivaled Craftsmanship. Unparalleled Exclusivity.
The Shelby G.T.500CR-900S model starts with a legend, and injects it with modern supercar technology: a 790 horsepower supercharged engine, advanced multi-link racecar inspired suspension, an opulent interior and modern turnkey reliability.
The employees over at Classic Recreations have the best job ever. During their time at the office, they get to take the best looking classic Mustangs and turn them into modern interpretations of what they once were. All of the classic looks of some of the best looking muscle cars of all time get to keep their exquisite designs, while getting juiced up and buffed out for their grand re-entrance into society.
One of the best parts of the Shelby GT500CR Venom is that it keeps the classic looks of the 1967 model. The customer can still ogle the classic lines and overall design of the Shelby while also taking in the new authentic Carroll Shelby exterior fiberglass enhancements, sequential Shelby taillights, Carroll Shelby GT500CR emblems, and a Carroll Shelby Lemans racing gas cap.
Classic Recreations hooked up the Shelby with a fuel injected 427 C.I V8 engine coupled with a ProCharger F1-R centrifugal supercharger that together pump out 790HP. This engine is mated to a Tremec manual transmission, but pansies out there can rest easy knowing they can punk out with an automatic if they have to.
The front wheels are 18x8s with the 225/40ZR18 tires, while the rear 18×11-inch wheels are fitted with ginormous 315/30ZR18 rubber. Stopping power for the Venom comes from slotted, crossdrilled, and zinc washed Shelby/Baer two piece rotors, 4″X1.1″ for the front and 14″X.81″ for the rear. This system comes with an adjustable rear proportioning valve and six piston calipers for the front and rear.
