The standard engine in the Revology Shelby GT500KR is the supercharged Ford/ROUSH Performance 5.0L Ti-VCT “Coyote” DOHC V8, rated at 710HP. This engine makes massive power when prompted, yet is docile and easy to drive in stop-and-go traffic.
The Revology Shelby GT500KR is equipped with a carbon fiber driveshaft and heavy-duty Ford 8.8” rear with 1350 yoke, S-Trac helical torque-biasing limited slip differential, 35 spline axles, and finned aluminum differential cover. Manual transmission cars are equipped with a twin-disc clutch and 3.73 ratio Ford ring and pinion, while 10R80 automatic cars feature a 3.31 ratio.
Carbon Fiber Driveshaft
Carbon fiber is the choice for high performance driveline applications due to its high strength and light weight, but it is also more forgiving than steel or aluminum, which serves to reduce driveline harshness, improving the overall level of refinement of the vehicle and making it more enjoyable to drive.
With a power-to-weight ratio on par with a Ferrari 488, the GT500 brakes have to be top notch. Large six-piston forged aluminum calipers clamp 13.06″ slotted and vented rotors in front while four- piston forged aluminum calipers work on 12.88″ rotors in the rear.
The stainless steel dual exhaust system is built by Borla to our specification. Tuned specifically for the Ford Coyote engine, it delivers a soft burble at idle and is quiet with no drone at cruise speed. The optional Performance Exhaust system features lower restriction mufflers to provide more power and a more aggressive tone.
Revology 1967 and 1968 Mustangs and Shelby GTs feature modern door hinges and door latch mechanisms. While it doesn’t sound very sexy, these modern components make the car much more enjoyable to use. No more squeaks and creaks as you open the doors—they open smoothly and quietly, and close with a solid “thunk”. When closed, the precisely latched doors contribute to the overall rigidity of the body.
If you’ve ever owned a 1960s automobile, you are familiar with having to slam the decklid multiple times to get it to stay shut. To address this problem, we’ve equipped all Revology Mustangs and Shelby GTs with a modern decklid latch and striker mechanism. The decklid can be opened using the key fob remote, via a release button located on the dash, or via an emergency release.
Polyurethane Bonded Windshield and Backlite Glass
All Revology Mustangs and Shelby GTs come standard with polyurethane bonded windshield and backlite (fastback models) glass. Polyurethane bonding is the way all modern automotive glass is secured not only because it seals better than rubber but also because it makes the glass part of the body structure, increasing body rigidity. Increased rigidity reduces noise, vibration, and harshness, but most importantly improves safety, as the stiffer roof is less likely to crush in a roll over and the glass won’t pop out and allow passengers to be ejected in a collision.
100% Steel Unibody
Modern cars all feature unibody, or monocoque, construction because it is stiffer and lighter than body on frame. For a unibody vehicle, the body provides the structure for the powertrain and chassis, which makes it much more important that it is designed and built properly. To ensure the structural rigidity and tight tolerances that allow the packaging of powerful new engines, we reengineered the Mustang unibody with added structural components and additional welds for increased strength. We build all Revology unibodies in-house, using locating fixtures, jigs, and templates to ensure proper dimensional control and sophisticated automated spot-welding equipment that senses the thickness and composition of metal that is being welded and applies the proper amount of current to ensure good quality welds.
The standard Pioneer 7″touch screen head units feature Bluetooth, reverse camera, voice recognition, Apple Car Play, and Android Auto and can be ordered with or without navigation and SiriusXM. The optional FOCAL Audio package features component speakers, an 720w 8 channel class AB amplifier, and a 10” enclosed subwoofer.
Leather and Alcantara™ Trim Packages
All Revology interiors are cut, sewn, and fitted by hand, including seats, floor mats, dash pad, door panels, quarter trim panels, and sun visors. This old-world craftsmanship takes time but allows freedom to choose materials and colors to ensure not only a flawless appearance but also everyday durability. We use only automotive grade leather and other materials from premium OEMs including Porsche, Mercedes, and Ferrari.
