Revology to launch all-new 1967 Shelby GT500
Orlando, FL – Hot on the heels of a successful launch of a brand new, reproduction 1966 Shelby GT350, Revology Cars, the Florida-based specialty automobile manufacturer, has confirmed plans for a new, licensed reproduction 1967 Shelby GT500, to be on sale by next summer.
The 1967 GT500 is one of the most highly sought after Shelby models. With its reproduction Shelby GT500, Revology will follow its proven formula. “We carefully integrate modern technology to improve performance, reliability, durability, fuel economy, safety, and comfort,” Tom Scarpello, president and founder of Revology Cars, “while retaining the essential character and style of the original design.”
For months enthusiasts have been excited by rumors of a 1967 Shelby GT500 coming from Revology Cars, but the company has kept quiet until now. “We needed to focus on the launch of our 1965 and 1966 models, which went into production last fall,” says Scarpello. “Now that production is running smoothly, we are able to turn our attention to new models.”
Detailed specifications will be released later, but in terms of its powertrain, the new GT500 will feature the 435hp Ford “Coyote” V8, the same engine that is found in the current generation Mustang GT. “The Coyote is a perfect engine for the GT500,” said Scarpello. “It has it all… Power, torque, and light weight; smooth, and high-revving. The Coyote is a technological tour de force.” With roughly 1.7 times the power of the original 428ci V8, in a car that weighs 550 lbs less than a modern Mustang GT, the Revology GT500 has a more favorable power-to-weight ratio than a Ferrari 360 Modena. But Scarpello insists the Revology GT500 is not just about performance. “These are seriously fast cars, but we don’t just build ‘numbers’ cars. Our cars are made to be capable in all conditions. Even crawling along in stop and go traffic in 110 degree heat, you and the car are OK. Combining classic styling, sound, and feel, with modern comfort and reliability, we have produced a very, very special car.”
Revology Cars is one of only three companies worldwide licensed by Shelby American to build authorized reproductions of the vintage 1960s Shelby GT350 and GT500 automobiles. Of the three, Revology Cars distinguishes itself through the thoughtful integration of the most advanced technology and materials available. For example, Revology is the only licensed manufacturer to use exclusively the state-of-the-art 2016 model Ford Ti-VCT DOHC V8 engine in its Shelby models. Each Revology Shelby GT500 will be documented in the Worldwide Shelby Registry.
Details on pricing, specifications, and availability have not yet been announced. However, interest is so high that Revology is accepting pre-orders for the Shelby GT500 now. To secure a production spot, a client must place a $10,000 deposit. Production will be reserved in the order deposits are received. The deposit is fully refundable, should the client decide not to follow through with the order.
The Revology GT500 will be built at Revology’s Orlando, Florida factory, on the same production line that builds the Revology Shelby GT350 and Mustangs. Prices of the Revology Shelby GT500 will be announced closer to the introduction date. However, enthusiasts can expect the GT500 to be priced similarly to the GT350 models, which, incidentally, is very close to the value of the originals.
Why own a reproduction Revology GT500 instead of an original? Says Scarpello: “The original is going to sit in your garage. You can drive the Revology, anywhere, anytime. It really depends on where your priorities are.”
In addition to the Shelby GT500, Revology offers a complete lineup of reproduction 1964 ½-1966 Mustangs. Complete information, including pricing, can be found on the Revology website at www.revologycars.com or by contacting Revology Cars directly at (800) 974-4463.
