Carroll Shelby partners with Ford to develop Performance Group products

Carroll Shelby International, Inc. has announced that Carroll Shelby, its Chairman and CEO, has once again partnered with the Ford Motor Company to jointly develop performance products.

In the 1960s Carroll Shelby and Ford worked together on both racing and production vehicle programmes, from the original Ford-powered Shelby Cobra to the Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 racing cars and the Shelby GT350 and GT500 Mustangs that kick-started the 'pony car' craze.

Carroll Shelby, now aged 80, has recently been serving as a senior technical advisor to Ford's team developing the new Ford GT supercar, providing design and engineering support.
