This 1:18 scale diecast model of the 1967 Ford Shelby GT500 in grey with black stripes is made by Solido. It measures approximately 26.3 cm in length and features opening doors & working wheels.
One of the legends of the American automobile industry, born in ’67, was the result of the restyling of Ford Mustang fastbacks. This variant, prepared by Carroll Shelby, is notable for it’s more aggressive and sporty look. With air intakes on the front and sides, the tuning is even more impressive on the rear with very special lights (borrowed from the Mercury Cougars), as well as a spoiler. Of course, though, the most important change is hidden behind the bonnet, with a 450hp V8 allowing it to hit 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just over 6 seconds, with a maximum speed of 220. Numbers that were frankly astounding for the time.
