Ford Motor Company and Shelby American collaborated to create a stunning high performance concept vehicle based on the exciting and innovative Ford Mustang Mach-E GT platform.
Shelby partnered with RECARO to develop a custom one of a kind seat for the project. The seats took inspiration from the current GT500 seats and were reimagined for the Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT. RECARO is well known for their production of tailored ergonomic seats designed for performance driving. RECARO seats are available in all of Shelby's current Mustang product line.
Graphene Infused Composites
Graphene is a cutting edge material that is stronger than steel, yet lighter than paper. The carbon atoms in graphene are arranged in a single honeycomb lattice layer. This arrangement gives the carbon extreme strength, conductivity and thermal properties while being extremely lightweight. Graphene Infusion is the process of adding graphene and its properties to a product or application. The concept vehicle features infused graphene carbon fiber composites and suspension components. The lightweight, strong materials improve performance in virtually every aspect.
Exterior look and Performance
Immediately identifiable as a "SHELBY"… the new exterior takes design queues from previous Shelby classics. The hood in particular harkens back to the Shelby Series1 hood and provides downforce and more importantly cooling. The front fascia takes queues from the current Shelby line of products. Carroll never liked "stickers and scoops", one thing this concept vehicle is not! All the new body components are light weight carbon fiber construction and are designed to improve performance.
