Now this is something that we don’t see too often, a classic American muscle car getting a substantial makeover and an enormous power upgrade to match. This is a Supercharged Shelby Mustang GT500CR by Classic Recreations.

The Oklahoma based tuning firm made an interesting attempt at creating a “modern interpretation” of the 1967 Ford Shelby GT500. Under the hood lies a supercharged 427ci V8 that is good for an insane 814 hp. The customized classic rides on Detroit Speed suspension with JRi Shocks coilovers. The Wilwood Disc Brakes replace the muscle car’s standard brakes and to keep the powerful Shelby in line the wheels are fitted with BFGoodrich Tires’ G-Force Rivals (275/35/18 & 335/30/18).

Eye-catchers in the car’s wheel arches are relatively modest 18-inch Grip Equipped Grudge Wheels that are finished with matte graphite centers and polished outers. What do you think of this Shelby transformation? Check out the gallery below!
