Shelby American has announced the opening of its new Speed Shop in Las Vegas.  Named the Shelby American Motorsports Speed Shop, the facility on the grounds of Shelby American headquarters and Las Vegas Motor Speedway, was designed to enhance the performance and styling of a street or track car by upgrading engine, suspension and body styling components.

“Shelby American’s roots began when Carroll Shelby and his band of hot rodders founded the company in 1962,” said John Luft, president of Shelby.  “This spirit lives in the company today, and has found its way into every car and truck ever since.   We’ve been asked to Shelby tune and modify customer cars for years.  With the Shelby team always testing the latest performance innovations for Shelby American’s experimental cars, we decided it was time to extend the Shelby Performance magic to the public.”

Over the past three months, Shelby American has been designing and building its new Motorsports Speed Shop.  The Shelby American Motorsports Speed Shop will focus on enhancing the performance of all American muscle cars.  The shop recently installed a state of the art chassis dyno to further validate Shelby performance improvements on customer vehicles.

“While we specialize in all American high performance cars, our experienced team can tune and work on just about everything,” noted Gary Davis, vice president of Shelby American.  “In addition to dyno tuning, we can install headers, cams, heads, cold air intakes, superchargers and other performance upgrades on all of the brands.  From Shelbys to Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes, F150s and Challengers, we can custom build just about anything a customer can dream.  We’ve even tuned sand buggies.”

Modifications made to any Shelby Cobra, GT500, Super Snake or Shelby GT will be included in the official Shelby Registry.  Every vehicle will include documentation that the services were performed at the shop.

The Shelby American Motorsports Speed Shop is now open for business.  For inquiries about engine tuning and other services, call (702) 942-1719.
