Shelby American, a division of Carroll Shelby International Inc is the premier independent performance car company in the United States. Committed to delivering cars and products that provide an unparalleled driving experience, the company has been at the forefront of automotive innovation since it was established in 1962. The company was founded by Carroll Shelby, one of America's greatest race car drivers. He dominated sports car racing success in the mid-1950s. His crowning achievement as a driver came in 1959, when he won the 24 Hours LeMans.


Shelby is associated with the Ford Mustang for good reason. The modern era at Shelby American has spawned a powerful array of fast Mustangs. But the Shelby lineup today has expanded to include the hottest trucks on the planet, such as the Shelby Raptor, Shelby F-150, Shelby F-150 Super Snake, and Shelby F-250 Diesel. The Shelby Performance Parts division is flourishing, and Team Shelby has evolved into a must-join club that keeps Shelby fans united with fun events, shows, and forums.

Shelby American moved to its current headquarters just off the Las Vegas strip in late 2013. Today, Shelby American is far more than just a manufacturing facility. It has become a destination, with a heritage center and car collection that is worth a trip to Vegas by itself.

Carroll Shelby passed away on May 11, 2012. However, he lived long enough to guide his namesake company into a bright future. The Shelby story makes for exciting reading, but the final chapters have yet to be written.

Mustang Platform Going Global

When Ford launched the “global” S550 Mustang platform, building RHD cars right alongside LHD Mustangs, it opened up markets and opportunities in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and South Africa. Shelby American has been right at the forefront in these markets, with an expanding list of Mod Shops that create authorized Shelby vehicles.

Mustang Motorsport was the first of these Modshops and Today we Build The latest and Greatest Shelby Vehicles from Shelby American
