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.
