Shelby

 
 
 
Shelby Automobiles is an American automobile company. This is the brand under which Carroll Shelby and his band of self-taught hot-rodders designed, built and raced Shelby Cobras, Daytona Coupes and GT350s.

Carroll Shelby has found himself on the winner’s podium one race after another, which eventually landed him on the front cover of Car & Driver's "Driver of the Year" – twice. And he is only the second American born driver to win the grueling 24 hours of Le Mans.

When he finished his time behind the wheel, he turned his attention to manufacturing. His dream of producing a lightweight sports car with American muscle came true in 1962. By 1963 the Shelby Cobra was a contender for the World Championship. Today, it is the most reproduced car in the world.

Shelby Automobiles supported Ford’s race program by preparing and racing their endurance race car - the Ford GT. The Ford - Shelby relationship continues today with their Mustang-based Shelby Super Snake and Terlingua post-title Shelby packages. It goes without saying that Carroll’s evolvement from driver to owner to manufacturer has made him a legend among the racing and automotive industries.
