Shelby is preparing to unveil two new models at the upcoming Detroit Motor Show, 8 months after its founder, Carol Shelby, passed away at the age of 89. Gary Patterson, Shelby American vice president of operations, confirmed one of them and provided some hints about the other.
"We have a wide body option on the 2013 Super Snake – a concept you’ll be able to see at the Detroit auto show in January. This will allow you to put a lot of tire on the car, allowing you to put a 345 or even a 355 wide tire on the back", Patersson said.
Patterson then went on to talk about the company’s other projects. "2013 will be a big year for Shelby as we unveil projects in Detroit and in New York- so get ready!," he said.
The second model is still shrouded in secrecy but Shelby’s vice president of operations, Gary Patterson, quoted the late Carroll Shelby who said “I think you’re going to see the industry going completely to small engines with turbochargers. That’s the only way you can get the mileage that the government is going to be demanding.”
