The Shelby research and development team has been secretly developing the GTS package with the help of ATI ProCharger. The supercharger option is being supplied by ProCharger. ProCharger was the first and as of writing the only supercharger available for the 3.7L V6 Mustang. This particular Red 3.7L Supercharged Mustang was presented to Carol Shelby on this Birthday. It is also in pre-production trim. Here is a shot of it next to mine at the ProCharger campus while it was in development. We took this car to the Shelby Bash and all there loved it. It really tore up the track. Caroll himself even gave it a big thumbs up.

“The V6 Mustang is a particularly good platform for the Shelby GTS,” noted Shelby American vice president of operations Gary Patterson. “It’s even lighter and more nimble than the GT. And the V6 Shelby GTS makes about as much horsepower as the V8 in the Ford Shelby GT, but with better fuel economy at a lower price.”

The post-title package starts at $9,995.00, not including the base car. Superchargers and other options are available that allow buyers to personalize their dream Shelby. A limited number of the Shelby GTS will be built with reservations starting April 21; production is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2011.
