A week packed with American Muscle provided by the team at Shelby American Inc.
Monterey Car Week is full of endless events and car shows displaying some of the most desirable vehicles on the market, and Shelby American was at every stop to showcase its newest models. The week began with a private showcase event for Shelby America clientele and friends at the Bernardus Lodge & Spa in Carmel, CA for an introduction of the fleet that the professionals at Shelby have to offer. The vehicles at the event include the new Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport, in both a lifted and lowered version, as well as the Super Snake Mustang. As part of the single-cab short bed F-150 Super Snake, Aaron Shelby and brand executives were on-site to give a few words on the aspirations of Shelby American Inc. and the legacy the company continues to follow. After a lunch session accompanied by some fantastic views of the vineyard, the Shelby American team and owners discussed the plan of events for the week, which included a group drive down the iconic Route 1 roadway and meet-up at Laguna Seca Raceway.
Following the private event, Shelby American made their way to the Laguna Seca Raceway for a day fueled with modern, vintage, and historic races. The display was filled with Shelby Cobra examples, including a very special new project that the team was proud to have on-site. The first Shelby American electric Cobra made its debut at the track with owners and enthusiasts there to celebrate the event. The new platform incorporates genuine exterior and interior features of the classic muscle car. When opening the hood or trunk, the electric drivetrain of the Cobra is exposed with its battery back and electric motor stowed away. Providing a new electric driving experience for the Cobra, the new project defines the innovation and push forward for Shelby American Inc.
