The Series 1 is the only vehicle ever designed and engineered by
Carroll Shelby from a clean sheet of paper and built from the
ground up. All other Shelbys are reengineered models produced by
other manufacturers and modified by Shelby. Prior to production of
the Series 1, significant costs were incurred in testing and
certification required to conform to 1999 Federal Motor Vehicle
Safety standards. Once completed, a total of 249 production Series
1s were constructed by Shelby American, Inc., all as 1999 models.
Under the hood is a 4.0-liter DOHC EFI V8 engine courtesy of
Oldsmobile with a factory-installed supercharger mated to a 6-speed
manual transmission. The suspension features Shelby dynamic
coilovers, all attached to an aluminum racing chassis.
Additionally, a stainless-steel exhaust system was bolted on along
with a Borla muffler, and this car achieves a 50/50 weight
