Caught wind of this from some industry insiders. Should be an absolute monster. This will top the original Shelby Code Red project from the 2007 era by a long shot. More information will be released on Saturday according to my contacts.

From Autoblog:

Shelby Code Red is a 1,300-hp, twin-turbocharged Ford Mustang GT500

Only 30 units will be made

Ford’s next-generation Mustang is around the corner, but Shelby isn’t done injecting more power into the current model. The builder introduced a limited-edition evolution of the GT500 called Code Red that receives a long list of upgrades including a twin-turbocharged V8 capable of making 1,300 horsepower.

Long-time Shelby fans will recognize the name Code Red: it was used in 2008 on a prototype also designed as a twin-turbocharged GT500. Although the model never received the green light for production, the lessons that Shelby learned during the project weren’t consigned to the attic.

“Code Red is designed to be the pinnacle of Shelby Mustangs. While we never put it into production during 2008, many were keen to own one. The current-generation Shelby GT500 is so robust and spectacular that many of the issues we encountered 14 years ago no longer exist,” explained Shelby president Gary Patterson.

The most important changes are under the hood, where Shelby removed the 5.2-liter Voodoo V8’s supercharger and replaced it with two turbochargers. The list of modifications also includes Manley pistons and connecting rods, ARP main and head studs, a Ford Performance engine oil pump gear, a Fathouse Performance intercooler, upgraded fuel pumps, ID1300x fuel injectors, high-flow air filters and three-inch stainless-steel turbo downpipes — this is a serious (and seriously comprehensive) build. All told, the engine develops 1,000 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque when burning 93-octane gasoline (way up from 760 and 625, respectively, in the stock GT500), but feeding it E85 increases those figures to 1,300 and 1,000, respectively.

Suspension modifications (including height-adjustable front and rear springs) and performance half-shafts help keep the power in check. Visually, the Code Red stands out from the GT500 with 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, a widebody kit, numerous carbon fiber add-ons (including the hood), and edition-specific emblems. Shelby also added leather upholstery and removed the rear seats.

Shelby will build 30 units of the Code Red (10 each for the 2020, 2021 and 2022 model years), and pricing starts at $209,995 excluding the cost of the donor car, which carries a base price of $80,815 (including $1,395 in destination charges) for 2022. Options include Le Mans-style stripes and painted stripes.

I found out about this last summer when I was at Shelby American for my SE build. It will be a monster for sure.

So it's a twin turbo with true flex fuel, which means it will be running a Motec. The only company out there that's using the Motec regularly with high quality twin turbo s550 builds Fathouse Performance. If this is a collaboration between the two, that would be amazing and the car will be built to an incredible standard.

I 100% believe this is a collaboration between them.

Nelson builds some absolutely amazing engines. Would be great if they were building it again

I can confirm Fathouse is doing the builds for Shelby.

Excellent total package.
I’d be a buyer at $209k or whatever they’re asking for the package if it included the car.
I’ve always thought this car with DCT/Twins and advanced control (Motec) would be the ultimate.

Yes, that's the way I understand it, you provide the car. Insane but it is an insane vehicle. Too rich for my blood
