In total, at the time, 1,001 such cars were produced, but only 800 of them received the Raven Black color with Le Mans gold stripes.

Shelby GT350 Mustang began its history in 1965, becoming an absolute sensation on the track and beyond. One of these Mustangs can be bought at an online auction. For a rare copy of the 1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350H, they ask for 225 thousand dollars (almost 14.4 million rubles translated into our money). Before becoming the “lot” of the auction, this car was stored in a barn in one of the US states. His mileage was 81,438 miles, but on the exterior of the car, all these distances traveled in the end did not affect. The car was totally and quite meticulously restored before being auctioned.

The Mustang Shelby GT350H is powered by a 306-horsepower V8 Cobra 289 engine. It picks up the first “hundred” in 6.6 seconds.

 This motor has its own curious story. When, a year after the appearance of the Shelby GT350 Mustang, these cars began to be rented out to members of the Hertz Sports Car Club, many people removed the engine from the car and temporarily put it on their car. When it was time to return the Mustang, the engine was put back. By the way, it was then possible to rent a novelty for $ 17 a day and 0.17 cents per mile.

Meanwhile, the auction lot was the BMW Z8 from the James Bond movie. Such a car accelerates to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds.
