Classic Recreations Shelby GT500CR Venom puts ‘Eleanor’ in the dust – literally

1967 Mustang Fastback Shelby GT500 CR Venom by Classic Recreations

The Shelby GT500 has always been one of the signature cars produced by Carol Shelby. However, it is an extraordinarily rare car that only a select few can own. That said, many companies have ventured into creating their own restored clones or replicas, Classic Recreations being one of them.

Recently unveiled by the restorer is the GT500CR “Venom” model. On the outside, it looks like a normal GT500CR. But under the classic long hood is a beefed up version of the standard 427-cubic-inch V8. Featuring a ProCharger F1-R centrifugal supercharger, power is upped to a mind-boggling 780hp.

Other changes include a new pair of racing-style bucket La-Z-Boys and a 200mph speedometer that makes you wish you had the “Go-Baby-Go” button from the remake of “Gone in 60 Seconds.”

The suspension also has been upgraded as well as new Nitto NT555 tires to help cope with the massive amount of extra oomph.

Hit the jump for the high-res gallery and the specs.
