The new 1967 Shelby GT500CR will be powered by a 427ci V-8 (7.0-liters) pumping out 545 horsepower to cast aside any doubt this baby can run with the big dogs. If 500 plus horsepower is not enough you can opt for the Venom model which adds a supercharger system good for 780 horsepower. Each of these vehicles is hand-built in Oklahoma with model specific bodywork, custom paint and hand stitched upholstery. Other goodies found on the Shelby GT500CR include 17-inch wheels and tires, 9-inch rear end, Tremec Transmission and modern coil-over suspension with rack-and-pinion steering.
The interior receives some attention as well featuring Carroll Shelby signatire seats and gauges along with Shelby logos and badges throughout. Each vehicle will also receive a unique serial number along with inclusion into the Shelby World Registry.

Shelby GT500CR Prototype Makes First Appearance in Las Vegas
Classic Recreations 1967 G.T.500CR makes first public appearance in Las Vegas the same weekend as the NASCAR Shelby American Race
Less than four months after custom coachbuilder Classic Recreations announced the Officially-Licensed 1967 Shelby G.T.500CR continuation car program at the 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the first prototype made its debut in the same city but with a very different setting.
Details of the reborn supercar have been a closely guarded secret, but on February 25th, 2010, the first GT500CR prototype was photographed near the Shelby American facility in Las Vegas, prior to an all-Shelby weekend where car owners and NASCAR fans gathered to celebrate the legendary mark during the NASCAR Shelby American GT350 stock car race.
The G.T.500CR is the first official 1967 Shelby Mustang continuation car ever built, and each hand-built vehicle features a 427 cubic inch (7.0L) engine, model specific bodywork, custom paint and hand-stitched upholstery.
Each vehicle has an official Shelby serial number, badges and will be included in the Shelby World Registry. The prototype that appeared in Las Vegas is the 545 horsepower Performance Model, featuring a fuel injected, naturally aspirated engine, modern coil-over suspension with rack-and-pinion steering and more.
