The Series 1 is a quintessentially street legal race car. The suspension is a highly sophisticated race-quality setup that uses pushrods to mount the coil-over shocks inboard to reduce the unsprung weight. The new Nitto NT555R 305/40/R18 drag radial rear tires ensure the car sticks to the road. Leather bucket seats are custom made featuring Carroll Shelby’s signature embossed in the backs, with the ability to add a 5-point harness system. The convertible top folds away out of sight in a compartment located behind the cockpit.
