Series 1 Roadster
1999 Shelby Series 1 Roadster
1999 Shelby Series 1 Roadster
The Series 1 is the only car ever designed and engineered by Carroll Shelby from a clean sheet of paper, and built from the ground up. All other Shelbys are re-engineered models produced by other manufacturers and modified by Shelby. Prior to production of the Series 1, significant costs were incurred in testing and certification required to conform to 1999 Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Once completed, a total of 249 production Series 1's were constructed by Shelby American, Inc., all as 1999 models
For consignment number 209 of 249, and the ONLY example built with Centennial Silver and full Hugger Orange Stripes. An all-aluminum racing chassis, a stout 4.0 liter V8 and a mere 451 original documented miles!! A very rare example in house, clear the test track, my decoder and sports car man is behind the wheel and rarin' to go!
With a blank sheet of paper, Carrol Shelby borrowed from numerous sources to produce this creation. Shades of a Viper, Porsche, Corvette, Mazda and a few others have been masterfully mixed to produce this true Carrol Shelby creation. All bathed inn Centennial Silver, with full Hugger Orange stripes, it's the ONLY car with this color combination. Beautiful curvaceous lines for the front hood door and front quarter vents, and the rear with its round lighting and dual central exhaust tips. One has to love the eyebrow shaped rear quarter tops and how they gracefully melt onto the rear panel. Wide rockers add to the racing look, and on all 4 corners are 18-inch SAC alloy wheels. Lovely. Also, a note to the black canvas top which neatly folds down into a flip up rear cowling that curves and hugs the interior seats. GONE!
Keeping it simple with the use of two toned tasteful gray tuck and roll inserts and black surrounds for the seat bolsters, these high backs support you doing the acceleration phase of your driving. All designs for the interior include the use of a french curve, and all systems melt neatly into the dash which has been ergonomically designed for comfort and visual stimuli! Gray carpeting covers the floors, and a GM Monsoon stereo system is installed for your auditory pleasure. Although the sound of the engine should keep you occupied for a while!
Under the hood is immaculate with those low miles, and we see a 4.0 liter DOHC EFI V8 courtesy of Oldsmobile. On back is a 6-speed manual transmission. More beautiful design to shoehorn all this technology and power under the curvaceous hood with plenty of airflow inlets.
Shelby dynamic coilovers are the suspension, all attached to an aluminum racing chassis. Stainless steel exhaust system is bolted on along with Borla muffler, and this car achieves a 50/50 weight distribution. Looks like a mere 400 plus miles were on this undercarriage!
Awesome! Need we say more?? Strap in and enjoy. Carrol Shelby knew how to provide excitement during your driving experience.
209 of 249, Only ONE in Centennial SiIver and Hugger Orange. Low, Low original miles, molding injection nibs are still on the tires, and it looks like the showroom car when it left back in 1999. With use of carbon fiber and fiberglass this car weighs in at a mere 2400lbs!
