Shelby Brand Brings American Muscle Cars To The World!…
The Shelby American company is known for turning Ford Mustangs into high-powered street racers in the USA. Now, however, it’s got the go-ahead to sell its cars in South Africa, China, the UK, and other places.
But there is a downside – the cars may not be as powerful as their American counterparts. Overseas, there are engine power restrictions in many countries and the overseas models will be equipped with Ford’s smaller and more fuel-efficient turbocharged EcoBoost engines. A four-cylinder EcoBoost Shelby would yield 305 hp, or 345 hp with added tuning.
Shelby is singing up foreign dealers to sell the cars, but they’re also allowing some manufacturers to produce their own cars using Shelby Specs and Shelby-trained technicians.
Ford Lio Ho – a Chinese auto production company and retailer that is 70 percent owned by Ford Motor Company – and Shelby have reached an agreement to sell Shelby cars and be a certified vehicle-modification shop. Other agreements have been signed in the UK, Canada, South Africa and Australia.
As part of the agreements, each overseas Shelby ship will be required to sell the line of Shelby clothing and racing products.
