Shelby American is commemorating 50 years of high performance tuning with three limited Anniversary Edition Shelby Mustangs as announced at today's Detroit Auto Show.

"Few thought that Shelby American would make it in the car business for 50 years," said Carroll Shelby. "We built the first Cobra in a rented garage and then GT350's in an old hanger. But our company is still here, manufacturing the best cars that I've ever made. The next 50 years will be even better for Shelby American."

Of the 300 anniversary editions that will be built in total, there will be 100 of each Shelby GT500 Super Snake, GT350 and GTS editions. Breaking it down even further, only 50 white and 50 black of each 50th Anniversary Edition will be available.

Each special edition will feature gold stripes to signify the golden anniversary, commemorative 50th anniversary badging, custom interiors, special wheels, 6 piston front brakes, car cover and a unique VIN number that will be entered into the official Shelby registry.

A special museum delivery ceremony at the Shelby factory in Las Vegas is also included in the package as well as exclusive collector merchandise.
