Revology Announces Exciting New Mustang and Shelby Models at Barrett-Jackson Auction
Adding to the excitement of the Barrett-Jackson 2018 Scottsdale auction, Revology Cars is announcing two new reproduction Mustang models, the 1967 Shelby GT350 and the 1968 Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback Cobra Jet.
The ’67 GT350 features the body style of the Revology GT500 recently showcased at SEMA 2017, but with the 435HP naturally aspirated Coyote engine and a lower starting price of $189,000.
The ’68 GT Fastback Cobra Jet features the same Roush 600HP supercharged V8 found in the $219,000 ‘67 GT500, but its price starts at $199,000.
Revology has already created a stir at Barrett-Jackson this week, with the display of its 1966 Shelby GT350, and the 1967 Shelby GT500.
With the new models, Revology will follow its proven formula for reproducing classic Mustangs and Shelby GTs. “Our cars feature modern technology to improve performance, reliability, durability, fuel economy, safety, and comfort,” says company founder and CEO, Tom Scarpello, “while retaining the essential character and style of the original design.”
Revology’s introduction of the Cobra Jet model harkens back to Ford’s introduction of the original Cobra Jet engine option in 1968. At the time, the 428 cubic inch big block, derived from Ford’s Police Interceptor engine, made the Mustang the fastest production car in Ford history. Legend has it that it was so fast, the testing personnel at Ford’s Arizona Proving Ground had to validate, recalibrate, and recertify their equipment, to be sure their figures were correct.
In addition to the new Shelby and Mustang GT models, Revology is also introducing a ‘Drag Pack’ option. Inspired by the Drag Pack competition option that Ford made available in original Mustang and later models, Revology’s Drag Pack is essentially the heavy-duty drivetrain from its 600HP supercharged models, now available as an option in all naturally aspirated Revology Mustang and Shelby Fastback models.
For media attending the Scottsdale auction, Scarpello will be on hand from January 18-20 to discuss current and future developments at the Orlando, Florida-based company.
Revology Cars is one of only three companies worldwide licensed by Shelby American to build authorized reproductions of the vintage 1960s Shelby Mustang automobiles. Each Revology Shelby GT350 and GT500 will be documented in the Worldwide Shelby Registry.
