BarnFinds.com reported on the special Shelby on Wednesday, and it was reportedly found in an elderly woman's garage where it languished for years. We don't have much information on the car's life, but at one point, it was involved in a wreck. We can see a few body panels that don't match and a different color door on the driver's side.

  • Superformance Future GT Forty GT40

    The folks at Superformance have paired history with modern high performance. Usually, when you see a Superformance GT40 replicas, it roars with old-school V-8 fury. This one here however, dubbed the Future Forty and unveiled Tuesday at the 2018 SEMA show, is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6, much like in the modern GT supercar. Car owner Doug Campbell dreamed up the Future Forty when he was watching Ford's GT win its class in the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans. That's why the livery is an homage to the #68 car that won in the GTE class. The body on the Superformance car though, is a...
