Here's the Mustang GT500CR with body of all-carbon fiber hypercar-quality

~HAPPY NEW YEAR 2023~ Of course, you still remember the famous American muscle car figure was nicknamed 'Eleanor' roled in the 2000s Hollywood's movie titled of 'Gone in 60 Seconds.' That's right, it was 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. So, here's now we will discuss about a similar car that got an unusual modification..

Although exactly not an original car, instead only a modern re-created version as collaboration result of Classic Recreations with SpeedKore Performance Group (a carbon fiber specialist tuner), called Ford Mustang Shelby GT500CR, and of course officially under licensed of Ford and Shelby American.

As reported by Carscoops, the collaboration of those two famous American companies managed to make a full carbon fiber bodied Shelby GT500. As we're previously known the body parts of the Shelby GT500 were made of steel, now changed completely built under carbon fiber materials.

In other words, the Classic Recreations' carbon fiber GT500CR starts with a restored donor steel tub taken from an original 1967 or 1968 Mustang that is then fitted with all-new carbon fiber body panels of SpeedKore Performance Group.

Even the application of carbon fiber also extends to the interior parts such as the steering wheel, transmission lever, pedals, and dashboard ornaments as well as door trim. In addition to body panels that have been entirely replaced under hypercar-quality carbon fiber, the Classic Recreations provides several drivetrain options.

Well, the GT500CR models are available with several engine options, ranging from a Ford Performance Gen 3 Coyote 5.0-liter engine with power of 490 hp, up to a hand-built 7.0-liter engine with an intercooled ProCharger supercharger to burst power of 900 hp. All Shelby GT500CRs come with a Tremec five-speed manual transmission and stainless-steel MagnaFlow performance exhaust.

The next change in the legs are with the power rack-and-pinion conversion, coil-over suspension, oversized sway bars, Wilwood brakes, American Racing forged wheels and Michelin high-performance Z-rated tires.

While for those who want more performance, the optional Pro Touring Track Package includes Detroit Speed Engineering suspension, wider rear wheels and tires, mini tubs and six-piston brake calipers with larger rotors. Other options include six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, interior upgrades and a full palette of paint colors.
Still quoted of the same source, the carbon GT500CR will be followed by a Shelby-licensed all-carbon-fiber-bodied Cobra in the future. Later reported also by Carscoops, the Classic Recreations will be producing the GT500CR models in a limited number at just 25 units, with the price starts at $265,000 for the model powered by a 5.2-liter Coyote V8 drivetrain.
