Shelby American has announced that it will be debuting a new vehicle during the Mustang Club of America’s 40th Anniversary celebration which takes place September 1-4, 2016, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Little is known or revealed about the new vehicle, which the company had recently teased in a re-purposed image shown on flyers it was giving out at the 2016 AmericanMuscle annual car show on August 13.
The image was previously used to preview the 2015 Shelby GT and since Shelby American has been known to engage in playful promotional tricks, it is unclear whether the new vehicle will bear any relation or resemblance to Shelby American’s Mustang GT-based creation it unveiled in January 2015.
Due to a leaked spy photo taken at Shelby American facilities, we have learned that this new vehicle may be the “Shelby GT-E” presumably not an electric version (since it is said to have sounded like a traditional V8), but possibly a special edition rental car company version or maybe even a nod to Ford’s EcoBoost moniker.
We’ll have to wait a few more days to find out. Be sure to check out the unveiling on Friday, September 2, 2016 at 11:00 AM Eastern Time, just hours before the MCA will attempt the Guinness World Record Mustang Parade.
