2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible

Back in December it was reported that the 2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible would be making its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Of course, that prediction ended up being wrong, although we still got our fill of Mustangs at the show thanks to Shelby debuting their Anniversary Edition Mustangs and Ford showing off new colors for the 2013 Mustang and the 2013 Boss 302.

Now a new report from LeftLaneNews.com states that the 2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible will actually be making its debut at the Chicago Auto Show next week. What can we expect from the Shelby drop top? Our guess is that Ford might have made some chassis reinforcements to deal with the additional power from the supercharged 5.8-liter V8, although it’s likely the top speed will be limited compared to the coupe’s 202 mph limit.

We’ll bring you more details about the 2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible as soon as we have them, and check back next week for live photos of the car from the floor of the Chicago Auto Show.
