It’s no surprise really that Classic Recreations would dabble with continuation models of the GT350. So when we saw their beautiful 1966 Shelby GT350 prototype on the road we could hardly contain our sheer excitement at yet another wonderfully built automobile. Though now in fully fledged production the car features a 545 HP 427 cubic inch stroker motor, authentic Shelby Performance Parts, rack and pinion steering, race inspired coil over suspension, oversized disc brakes just to begin with. Not bad for a hand built car just a nudge over $100k.
Though what does it go like? We only had to wait until yesterday to find out when the gents over at Road & Track shared their experience with us after returning from a canyon run with the car. And the verdict? Well head over to Road&Track to find out.
This prototype comes with an official Shelby serial number and will be included in the official Shelby American World Registry. The official production run will also be limited to ten cars a year. Don’t miss the auction taking place at the Mecum Auctions during Monterey Car Week this Friday August 16.
