Lot #791 - The Shelby GT driving dynamics are fine tuned wîth the Ford Racing handling pack, developed by the same engineers that developed the Ford Racing FR500C, which won the 2005 Grand-Am Cup Championship. New coil springs drop the overall ride height by an 1-1/2" for a more aggressive stance and reduced body roll. Stiffer dampers and front swaybar further enhance cornering feel and body control. To showcase the key performance modifications, Ford Racing painted all the key suspension components, including the damper, spring and swaybar Ford Racing Blue. A front strut tower brace adds additional strength to the chassis structure and P235/55ZR18 high-performance tires maximize the benefits of the chassis upgrades. Under hood, the Ford Racing Power Pack increases the output of the naturally aspirated, three-valve, 4.6 Liter V8 to 325hp and 330 ft/lbs of torque. The Power Pack includes a 90 millimeter cold-air intake and a new performance engine calibration for improved response. The high-flow exhaust system wîth X-pipe crossover offers better power delivery and a throaty V8 exhaust note. A shorter rear-axle ratio is installed to capitalize on the Shelby GT coupe's extra power, especially accelerating off the line. For Shelby GT models equipped wîth a manual transmission, a Hurst short-throw shifter is installed for more precise shift action.
