The Shelby Series 1 is the only car ever designed and engineered by Carroll Shelby from a clean sheet of paper and built from the ground up. This hand-built, limited-production sports car is #219 of 249 produced. A naturally aspirated Oldsmobile 4.0-liter V8 engine is set back in the chassis in a mid-front mount configuration for optimal 50/50 balance. With dual overhead camshafts, sequential fuel injection and high-flow dual exhaust, the Oldsmobile V8 produces 320hp and 290 ft/lbs of torque. The engine is mated to a ZF 6-speed manual transmission. The chassis is comprised of an aluminum frame with a race-derived double wishbone independent suspension.
This car will do 0-60 in 4.4 seconds and its top speed is 170 mph. The carbon-fiber and fiberglass-composite body is painted silver with the stripe delete package. The Cobra-style aluminum pop-up fuel filler cap creates an attractive race car detail. The interior is comprised of leather bolstered seats with power-adjusted sport controls. Much of the interior components came from General Motors, including the premium Monsoon sound system. Power windows and locks, along with air conditioning, provide comfort and convenience. Power steering and 4-wheel power disc brakes deliver confident road control.
This car comes complete with its original Window Sticker, owner's manual from Shelby American and limited-edition leather embroidered jacket designed by Jeff Hamilton. This car is completely original, except for the battery, and has 544 actual miles.
