2008 Shelby GT Barrett Jackson Special Edition

2008 Shelby GT Barrett Jackson Auction

Wish we would of caught notice of this auction a bit sooner.  Up for auction is a 2008 Shelby GT Barrett-Jackson Special Edition.

Shelby has been producing high performance cars since 1962 including the Cobra, GT350, and GT500. We resumed our association with Ford in 2006 with the production of the Shelby GT-H. We carried that forward to the Shelby GT in 2007. In 2008 Shelby produced over 2200 Shelby GT Mustangs. Most of those were blue with silver stripes but we made a limited run of just 100 cars, black with red stripes, for sale exclusively by Arizona Ford dealers. These limited editions were labeled "Barrett-Jackson" and are very rare. Of those 100, 61 were coupes. Of the 61 coupes, 46 had manual 5-speed transmissions. Some of these rare models were snapped up by celebrities and executives who recognized the uniqueness and wanted to own a true Shelby vehicle. Others went into the hands of Shelby enthusiasts lucky enough to catch one before they were all sold. One of those limited production cars is up for bid here today.

Some of these cars made their way back to our Las Vegas facility for post-title modifications, making them rarer still, while maintaining their genuine Shelby pedigree and raising their future value to collectors.  Check out the Video the 2008 Mustang Shelby GT Barret Jackson Special edition on Youtube.
