Shelby GT Widebody

Last month we reported that Shelby had launched a new widebody kit for the 2005-2009 Mustang, allowing owners to add an extra six inches to the rear and three inches to the front of their cars. The kit includes front and rear fenders constructed of high-quality fiberglass, 20×10 front and 20×13 rear wheels and 265/35/R20 front and 345/35/R20 rear tires. In total, the package will set you back $17,995.

At the time we only had a handful of pictures of the widebody package, but now we’re happy to say that we can show you plenty more photos of the car. We spotted the company’s own demo car, a Shelby GT, fitted with the widebody kit on display at Barrett-Jackson this past week, and photographed the car extensively to show every detail of the car.

We’re also happy to say that the widebody Shelby GT looks stunning in person – people passing by had nothing but compliments – but the price tag is still a hard pill to swallow. The $18k cost of the package is essentially the same or more than a low mileage 2005-2009 Mustang by itself.

You can see the Shelby’s widebody kit for the 2005-2009 Mustang in more detail below, or check out our galleries for the Shelby GT500 Super Snake Widebody or Shelby GTS Widebody.

    This is just goofy looking! This is not Fast n Furious and a bad video game. Based on this and that butt ugly Shelby Focus WHO is running or should say ruining this company!

  • I love this widebody kit! It is the best one on the market today. It is not just for apperance. It has to be flared like that to keep the extra wide wheels in the body work. Maybe it is just me, but I love curves on a car.

    I like it (as well as the Shelby Focus ST, it will make a great family hauler), but I’ll hold my full assessment until I see it in person. It’s my understanding that this example is the prototype. Not that I expect changes but I do expect the fit & finish to improve. A couple of the body lines between the OEM door and the fiberglass fenders appear to not match as well as I would like and rocker stripes could be updated to better fit the new dimensions.
