Donate to the Shelby American Collection and get entered to win a 2020 Shelby GT500.  It’s not every day you have a shot at a modern classic, a rare and  powerful 2020 Ford Shelby GT500, which is a true collector’s car fresh  off the factory line. Finished in a striking Ford Performance Blue, this  muscle can eat supercars for breakfast, showing how American  performance is far from dead. As a thanks for being a Motorious fan,  please use “SHELBY4” as a promo code for 25% more tickets, increasing your chances of winning.

All donations go to a worthwhile cause, the Shelby American Collection car museum.  Contained in the museum are plenty of iconic Shelby cars for the public  to see in person and learn more about Carroll Shelby’s legacy. Located  in Boulder, Colorado, this amazing installation has millions of  dollars-worth of iconic vehicles like the Ford GT40, Shelby Cobra, and  Shelby Mustangs. Memorabilia, photos, and other artifacts related to  Carrol Shelby, Ken Miles, Bob Bondurant, Dan Gurney, and other past  Shelby American members are also on display. As a charity,  all who work at the museum are volunteers, so your contribution will go  directly toward literally keeping the lights on. Plus your donation  gives you the chance at winning a 2020 Ford Shelby GT500, which isn’t a  bad deal.

Once you fire up that amazing 5.2-liter supercharged cross-plane  crank V8 engine, which sounds like nothing else, you’ll understand why  so many people want to get their hands on this car. It belts out a solid  760-horsepower and 625 lb.-ft. of torque for plenty of tire-smoking  fun. Through the dual-clutch transmission, gear changes come so quickly  you might not even notice. If you plan on using this car at the strip, launch control will help you achieve optimal quarter mile times.

The  performance goodness doesn’t stop there. A MagneRide damping system  keeps the ride quality comfortable and yet responds to steering inputs  with incredible speed. Brembo brakes exceed anything used in a  production Mustang before, bringing this ride to a dead stop like a true  champion.

This isn’t just a straight-up Shelby GT500, since it comes with some  excellent goodies to sweeten the deal. It comes with the Carbon Fiber  Track Package with exposed carbon-fiber wheels, Michelin Pilot Cup Sport  2 tires, and a GT4 track wing. Painted “Over-the-Top” white stripes  really punch up the look of this Ford further. With the Technology  Package you get to enjoy cutting-edge features, including a B&O  premium sound system and performance-enhancing features.

As if that weren’t enough, the winner of this Shelby GT500 also receives the GT500 Track Attack experience at Ford’s Performance  Racing School, plus a $1,000 gift certificate for Adam’s Polishes. The  close date for this giveaway is September 5, 2020.
