Limited to 10-units per model year for 2020-2022, the Shelby GT500 Code Red replaces the factory supercharger with a twin-turbocharger setup. More specifically, a twin-turbo 5.4L V8 engine that makes over 1,000 hp and 780 lb-ft of torque on 93 octane pump gas or 1,300 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque using E85 Ethanol.
Aside from the power upgrades, you also get a Shelby-made carbon fiber hood, splitter, rear diffuser, rear wing, and a widebody fender package. Suspension wise, there’s height adjustable springs and revamped MagneRide dampers, all riding on forged aluminum Shelby wheels. Step inside, and you’ll find leather seat recovers, a CSM numbered dash plate, and a rear roll cage that replaces the rear seat. Just one caveat: the upgrade package will cost you at least $209,995 USD, not including the GT500 itself.

Shelby American has built cutting-edge experimental versions of the Shelby GT500 since the model was launched in 1967. While these test-beds for innovation never became production cars at the time, they helped make our vehicles better. For the first time in our 60-year history, we’re turning an experimental car into a limited-edition vehicle. The enormous demand for a CODE RED edition is an opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities, as well as the enormous potential of Ford Motor Company’s marvelous Shelby GT500 as a dedicated straight-line performer,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American.
