2007 Ford Shelby GT

2007 FORD SHELBY GT - WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Shouldn’t this car be called a Ford Mustang? Well, mechanically and cosmetically, it certainly looks like a Mustang. But it was a 2-year limited edition special that started production in December 2006, and went on sale in January 2007 as an ’07 model, and ran through the 2008 model year. As to why they called it a Ford Shelby GT and not some kind of a Mustang? It probably got into too many words. 2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT? And there were already plenty of Shelby Mustangs. So this was meant to stand out as what it was: a very limited edition car.
WHAT IS A 2007 FORD SHELBY GT?
Originally intended as a limited run of 6,000 cars between 2007 and 2008 model years combined, the Ford Shelby GT was sort of a slotted in between the standard 300hp Mustang GT and the monster 500hp Shelby GT500, the Shelby GT’s 4.6 L V8 made 319hp. It was originally conceived as a recreation of the 1965-66 Mustang GT350H, which was built exclusively for Hertz car rentals, which was built in limited numbers and supplied to Hertz in 2006 and 2007. After that contract was fulfilled, Ford decided to make a retail version of the car, with several cosmetic changes, and the result was the 2007 Ford Shelby GT. Compared to the 2006-07 Hertz cars, the Shelby GT deleted the rear spoiler, changed the hood scoop, and went with silver stripes instead of Hertz’s gold stripes.
2007 FORD SHELBY GT MODELS & COLORS
Of course, any car sold to Hertz was going to be black with gold stripes. But the 2007 Ford Shelby GT was offered in black or white with silver stripes. The following year, the last year for the Shelby GT, more colors were added to the palette and a small number or convertibles were built.
