Any Mustang with the Shelby name attached to it is bound to be extraordinary, but some are even more special than others. Only intended for California, this 2008 Shelby Mustang GT-C is an exceptionally rare breed that packs a 319 hp punch underneath its special sunny-day colors. And this one-owner, low-mileage example comes with the paperwork to ensure it remains the kind of collectible that Carroll Shelby would personally sign (just check the sun visor.)
<br><br> You probably have heard of the 2007-08 Shelby GTs, but the GT-C was meant to stay out west. Less than 220 of these were ever made, each one with the exclusive Grabber Orange and silver stripe package. Of course, if you're truly looking for the best in a special edition, you need an example like this where its one and only owner thus far scarcely let it out of the garage to get a low 9,200-mile odometer. That's why this collectible appears like new. The Shelby GT package added a deeper front air dam, a special billet grille with an offset Mustang emblem, a hood scoop, hood pins, and the requisite Shelby emblems and badges. Out back, you get big SHELBY block letters as well as a diffuser panel under the bumper and twin exhaust tips that shine brightly. It's a total package that makes the GT-C look powerful and exclusive, which is exactly what this has been since day one from Shelby American.
<br><br> The low mileage and exceptional care mean the interior has a factory-fresh feeling. But just because this can turn your garage into a Ford/Shelby showroom doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy it to the fullest. After all, Carroll Shelby was all about driving, and this one is both comfortable and powerful. The sculpted buckets are all-day comfortable; the instrument panel is equal parts retro and state-of-the-art; and the five-speed now has an iconic Hurst cue ball short-throw shifter. As a true Shelby, you get a numbered plaque on the dash. Plus, the Shelby signature is in the correct place on the passenger-side sun visor. These are great additions on top of a loaded Mustang with an equipment list that includes air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, power locks, and a power driver's seat. Plus, this one has the optional infotainment system with AM/FM/CD stereo and satellite navigation. And the level of care in the full package means it looks like the Shelby-specific floor mats were never installed to make sure admires never got them dirty.
<br><br> Ford's already potent 4.6-liter fuel-injected V8 got a few tweaks for duty in the Shelby GT, starting with a cold air induction system and a Pro-Cal performance calibration, which ups output to 319 horsepower and 330 pounds of torque. There's also a strut tower brace that really makes a statement in the tidy engine bay, and it also provides yet another reminder that this was worked on by the masters at Shelby. Underneath there's an X-pipe exhaust system with upgraded mufflers to give this a true snake-bitten growl. These undercarriage photos also prove how little this has been driven with the tags still crisply present! More than just fresh, this features Ford's Racing Handling Pack, which includes specially tuned shocks and struts, lowering springs, oversized sway bars, and a 3.55 limited slip rear end. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, and sticky BF Goodrich gForce T/As on 18-inch premium wheels, and now you've got a truly special package that's a blast to drive.
<br><br> A Shelby is a classic from day one, and that's why this one has been kept so well with documentation that includes the owner's manual packet and original window stickers (both Ford and Shelby). Yes, this car is as special as you think it is, and its rarity means this Grabber Orange Shelby will be grabbing attention for decades to come. It's a hot deal that you need to grab today or you may regret it tomorrow!
