Shelby is set to introduce the most powerful Shelby yet at the New York International Auto Show on April 5th. The 2012 Shelby 1000 takes its name from its horsepower figure, which is approximately a mind-boggling 950 horsepower on the street trim and 1,100 horsepower for the 1000 S/C track version. To accommodate the extravagant power output from the Ford 5.4-liter V8, the Shelby team installed a new beefier suspension, larger brakes and a custom aluminum solid driveshaft connected to a new nine-inch rear end. A limited number of 2012 Shelby 1000s will be built, with orders accepted following the car’s unveiling at the New York International Auto Show. A completed Shelby 1000 is expected to cost around $200,000.
