Sometimes it can take months for a product to come to market after it’s initially shown to the public, but that’s not the case for Shelby’s latest Mustang. After debuting the 950 horsepower 2012 Shelby 1000 at the New York Auto Show earlier this month, the company is already hard at work building the first customer car at their facility in Las Vegas, NV. The vehicle shown is actually a Shelby 1000 S/C, a track-only version of the car that is rated at an incredible 1,100 horsepower thanks to longtube headers, race fuel and increased boost from the massive 3.6L Kenne Bell supercharger.

As you can see from the photos below, the modifications required to create a Shelby 1000 are so extensive that the entire drivetrain and front suspension have to be completely removed from the vehicle and assembled separately. In addition to the new engine components, the car is also scheduled to get larger front and rear brakes, an all new suspension system, a 9-inch rear end and more.

    I seldom write remarks, however after browsing a few off the comments
    on this page Prodsuction of first Shelby 1000 begins in Las
    Vegas | Mustang News. I actually do have 2 questions for
    you if it’s allright. Could it bbe only me or does it give the impression like a few off these responses appear like they are written by brain dead
    individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I
    would like to follow you. Could you post a list of the complete urls of all your social community sites like
    your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
