2006 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Coupe
This 2006 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Coupe is a rare find in Australia, having had just two owners since new and presents in right-hand-drive configuration. Under the bonnet is a supercharged 5.4-litre V8 engine producing 373kW/651Nm which is sent to the rear wheels. The transmission in this example is a Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual. It currently shows 78,660km on its odometer since new.
No other name in the American muscle car world is as recognised or revered as the Ford Mustang. When that name is paired with Shelby, it becomes another matter entirely. Shelby and the Ford Mustang are a synonymous pairing that dates back over 60 years, but importantly the connection is still alive to this day. The 2006 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was for Mustang customers who wanted extra performance out of their Mustang, and equipped a supercharger to Ford’s Modular 5.4-litre V8 engine. Larger 18-inch wheels, a body kit with bigger intakes, and suspension tuning was also incorporated. Jointly-developed between Ford’s Special Vehicle Team and Carroll Shelby, the GT500 was produced in limited numbers at Ford’s Michigan factory. The GT500 was not available for general sale in Australia, making right-hand-drive examples such as this a rare commodity.
This car’s unique look pairs red exterior paintwork with white GT stripes. The interior is upholstered in red and black leather. Some light modifications add to this car’s original specification including a Borla muffler, lowering on Ford Racing springs, and it has a 2013 Shelby clutch. The car has also been flash tuned and fitted with cold air induction. The wheels have been upgraded to 20-inch Shelby ‘Razor’ items, currently wearing Firestone WideOval Indy 500 tyres.
Manufactured in Ford’s Flat Rock facility in late 2006, this early-build GT500 is now a two-owner car that was imported by its current owner from the USA in 2008. After import the car was converted to right-hand-drive by renowned experts Performax QLD. The current owner has held the vehicle the last 14 years and has had it maintained by Stangfever. The last service was completed in 2019 where the brake pads and rotors were replaced, it received a new clutch, and new tyres were fitted. It has rarely been used since and remains in good mechanical condition according to the owner.
The car’s exterior presentation has fared very well over the course of its life. Red and white paintwork shows in great cared-for condition, with no overt marks or chips seen on the body work. Some stone chips were professionally repaired in 2020, testament to the care the owners took with this car. Some significant scraping can be seen on the car’s lower front plastic splitter. All four wheels appear without curb rash, while a good amount of tread is visible on the tyres.
Interior condition has been well preserved. The car’s dashboard, door card plastics, and centre console appear without significant marking or scratches. Upholstery does show some wear and tear commensurate with the car’s 78,660km odometer, though the seats themselves retain a good original shape. The most significant wear and tear is identified on the seat bolstering.
This car will be supplied with original documentation and two sets of keys.
