Fresh off the press, car modification company Retrobuilt has taken the new fifth generation Ford Mustang and made it look like the old classic 1969 Shelby GT500. The tuners who are located in Missouri have been working on this 1969 Shelby GT 500CS package for a while now and it is ready for the public. The conversion kit will include all new body panels, new headlights, taillights, chrome trim and Shelby wheels to replicate the original 69 Mustang.
Part of our coverage of the LA Auto Show brought us a first hand look at the highly modified Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 due out in 2013. It sports a brand new grille, LED lighting, and aggressive chin splitter up front. Under the hood, the Mustang holds a 5.8-liter more efficient TVS 2300 supercharger that produces an incredible 650 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. Ford focused on making it more efficient with their all-new fuel delivery module and injector combination.
Here is the GeigerCars latest tuning program for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 that includes a few styling improvements and a nice power increase. At the exterior level, a couple modifications consist of a new racing chassis and 20-inch alloy wheels from OZ measuring 20×8.5 in the front, and 20×10 in the rear. They come wrapped in high performance Michelin tires, but the most impressive changes to the Shelby Mustang were made under the hood. GeigerCars increased the power to an incredible 810 hp from the 3.3-liter compressor, which is able to develop 1.6 bar of pressure through the 5.4-liter V8 powerplant. With that kind of horsepower figure, you know the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 had to receive some heavy duty parts.
