Team Shelby South Atlantic has just received their own new Ford GT. The news comes from Instagram account @teamshelbyracing owned by Bob Zinzell, Team Shelby South Atlantic Regional Director. The new supercar is finished in Frozen White with what looks like the Dark Energy interior. We can’t wait to see their team take the American supercar out for a drive and put its engine to use.
The Ford GT’s EcoBoost engine is the most powerful of its kind that Ford has ever created. With 647 horsepower on tap, it’s so powerful that the Daytona Prototype’s crankshaft had to be replaced with the pre-production F-150 Raptor’s crankshaft. Why? The team was noticing that the original crankshaft was cracking under grueling condition. Thanks to this swap, the Daytona Prototype went on to win its first race at Sebring that very same year.
