Shelby GT350CR by Classic Recreations Revealed [Photo Gallery]
Developed with input and oversight from Shelby Licensing, the one-off prototype blends classic styling elements, such as riveted quarter windows and side exhaust, with modern technology, which basically sends it in the restomod area.
Powered by a 545 HP fuel injected 7.0-liter V8 engine connected to a Tremec five-speed manul transmission, this 1966 Shelby GT350CR also gained Carroll Shelby signature rally series 1000 seats, dual-tank Nitrous, bespoke HRE wheels and custom paint. Even though the vehicle will be auctioned in August, Classic Recreations said it will enter the Shelby GT350CR in production, with ten units to be built each year.
“The 1966 Shelby GT350 is one of the most beloved sports cars ever built and I’m thrilled to contribute to the Shelby legacy,” said Jason Engel, Owner of Classic Recreations. “There is no question that the ’66 holds a special place in the hearts of racing and Shelby fans, but the original cars are now difficult to drive due to their value and antiquated underpinnings. We were able to pair the original design with modern technology for the ultimate driving experience – and this is the very first car in the line.”
