2012 Shelby 1000 Widebody

Shelby first announced a widebody kit for the 2005-2009 Mustang back in December, and a similar package for the 2010+ Mustang a month later at the Detroit Auto Show in the form of an 850 horsepower GT500 Super Snake. At the time we asked company representatives if the widebody kit would be available for the Shelby 1000, and the answer was a resounding yes. In fact, they told us that one was already under production.

Fast forward a few months and the first production widebody Shelby 1000 is making its debut at the Fabulous Fords show at Knott’s Berry Farm in Southern California. The car was scheduled to be delivered to its lucky customer later that day, who would drive it home from the show.

Out of any Mustang in the Shelby lineup the 1000 could use the widebody package the most, with the 345/35/R20 tires helping to put the massive amounts of horsepower from the supercharged V8. This particular model was a 950 horsepower “street” version, as the S/C model isn’t street legal on California roads.

    Amazing car, and looks better in silver. However, I still can’t make up my mind if the widebody cars a poorly painted, or it’s a trick of the light given the wider panels, but those rear haunches look a different shade to the rest of the car.

    Also, the shutline from door to rear panel is very iffy :(

    I still wouldn’t say no though!

    To answer you question on the “rear haunches” aka Quarter panels, if you look at the new body Camaro’s, they have the same “issue” where the quarter panels look a different shade/color then the rest of the vehicle. It’s all in how the eye perceives the image that it is looking at. Sorry to sound like a smart ass, but it irritates me the most when people call quarter panels “rear fenders” or anything along the sort. Just trying to lay out some knowledge to let people know what the real deal is.

    I saw the car in person at the show. The paint looked fine, it’s a trick of the lighting in the photos. In fact, in person the widebody is a little more subtle than these pictures make it look. It actually looks pretty good as opposed to other widebody attempts I’ve seen.

  • Fordguy says:

    is the hood open a bit? or is it bad fit?

  • MustangsDaily says:

    The hood’s slightly open. The Shelby rep didn’t want to close it all the way.
