Shelby Mustang GTS Concept

Shelby is considering several new aftermarket Mustang projects including a twin-turbo package for the 2007-2009 GT500 and a performance package for the 2010-2011 Mustang GT and Mustang V6. Shelby is currently asking its customers for feedback to decide which models to produce, and it seems likely that the 2011 GT350 could be joined by at least one additional Mustang in the Shelby lineup.

The performance packages for the 2010-2011 Mustang GT and Mustang V6, codenamed Project 2010-06a and Project 2010-06b, are the most likely to be produced as Shelby has already built a concept version. Named the Shelby GTS, the performance package would cost anywhere from $9,000 to $12,000 and would include a variety of visual and performance enhancements:
