Can you hear it roar Of course not, you can't hear pictures … can you?
Shelby American is ready to hone thateven more. Last Friday, the company announced the Shelby GT500 Signature Edition, which delivers over 800 horsepower.
We don't have final performance yet, but at least 40 extra horsepower come from a new pulley and cooler for the charged 5.2-liter V8 engine. Thanks to lightweight elements such as a carbon fiber hood, the engineers slimmed the car down by 30 pounds. There is also a new set of track-focused springs and a more aggressive suspension set-up. New wheels and tires and special badges are included, and Shelby will even equip the car with a wide body kit if desired.

While the changes won't be that big, thereceives its own Signature Edition to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the car. The company said that each GT350 Signature Edition received several "functional styling elements" along with a new handling package and badge to indicate the importance of the car. Like the GT500 Signature Edition, the GT350 also gets improved wheels and tires. Those who order a 2020 GT350 will get special anniversary badges, but Shelby will be happy to remodel cars with the modifications in 2015-2019 as well. They just won't get the anniversary treatment, but they will still be registered in the official Shelby register, as will the GT500 models.
