Terlingua Team Rides Again Ever since Shelby American introduced the highly sought after, limited edition V6 Terlingua Mustang in 2007, fans of the Terlingua Racing Team® brand and eponymous jackrabbit logo from the Terlingua Ranch in Texas, have wondered when a V8 version would be available.

Today Shelby American is proud to offer a limited run of (50) Shelby Terlingua Racing Team Mustangs built on the 2015-16 Ford Mustang GT, America's best-selling sports car.

The Shelby Terlingua is our most track-inspired Mustang and is built as a tribute to the Terlingua Racing Team and their 1967 Trans Am Championship.

We start with a Whipple supercharger mated to the new 5.0L V8 Mustang GT producing over 750HP and give it an exclusive Shelby by Eibach sway bar and adjustable coil overs. Then we bring in Ford Performance upgrades including half-shafts, a short throw shifter and the aggressive sounding Borla Exhaust with black tips. We also added the Brembo big brake kit for racetrack-proven performance. And with 20" WELD racing wheels, tons of Shelby-designed carbon fiber components and the distinct Terlingua Racing Team badging, this car looks and runs like a Terlingua racecar should.


"The Terlingua Racing Team was created in the 1960's to have a lot of fun for a lot of people," said Bill Neale, designer of the famous Terlingua Racing Team Crest. "Our rough and ready group was as passionate about playing as we were about racing. From our wild weekends on the Rio Grande in South Texas to racetracks across the world, the Terlingua Racing Team took no prisoners. The team crest and racing livery that I designed came to symbolize that raucous, irreverent lifestyle that thumbed its nose at the establishment."
- Bill Neale

Only 50 2015-16 Shelby Terlingua will be offered starting at $65,999* and just like everything that wears the Shelby name, they're expected to go...fast. Call or email us today to place your reservation.

Yes, expensive it is but if I buy a Super Snake and add some of the options then you are right near the Terlingua price. Every GT500 owner who converted to a SS spent over $100k and the Terlingua is far more track ready then anything else. I have been considering buying a 2016 Cadillac CTS-V and its over $100k fully loaded. In my opinion this new Terlingua would eat up many Porsches which cost what $150k and up. They will sell these no problem because there will only be 50 built for U.S. and keep in mind if you bought a brand new 2016 Mustang GT and added all the goodies you can find, you would just have spent more than Ford is selling the new GT350 for.


I like the Terlingua better than the Super Snake
