“Shortly after my grandfather beat Enzo on the track at Le Mans, Carroll and Ford engineered the all-new 1967 Shelby GT500 as a ‘Ferrari killer’ for the street,” said Aaron Shelby, co-president of the foundation and board member of Carroll Shelby International. “Fifty-five years later, this car has new life with the capabilities to take on Europe’s biggest names once again. I’m proud of Classic Recreations’ efforts to keep Carroll’s dream alive.

But what’s the cost of it all? Well, the standard GT500CR with a complete carbon fiber body starts at $265,000, with several options available for both the styling and the drivetrain. The limited-release Carbon Edition begins at $298,000 and can be customized from there. The carbon-fiber upgrade is then available for officially-licensed Shelby GT500CR 900C, 900S, and 545 model owners to have installed on their cars.
