Last year at SEMA Classic Recreations showed off a right-hand-drive version of their Shelby GT500CR, and this year they’ve followed that up with a version powered by a Ford Racing Coyote 5.0L crate engine. The company plans to offer the engine, produces 490 horsepower and 429 lb-ft torque, as an alternative option on the GT500CR as an alternative to the vintage 427ci crate engine.
“If you like the graceful drivability of a modern GT500, but prefer the classic Mustang styling, this is the car for you,” said Classic Recreations owner, Jason Engel. “Classic Recreations combines modern technology with classic styling to create a best-of-both worlds experience. Now, customers can get a CR car with the same engine offered by Ford for the current Mustang.”
With the exception of the engine this model is a standard Shelby GT500CR, starting with a Dynacorn steel body fitted with a front and rear coilover suspension system, power rack and pinion steering, Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, Carroll Shelby signature rally series 1000 seats and more.
