The Shelby GT350 was released onto the market in 2011 and since then, has been improved upon every year. In 2011, it only came as a coupe painted in white with blue stripes and for the 2012 model year, Shelby also added a convertible version with three more colors. For the 2013 model year, the GT350 was available in all factory available colors, updated with visual styling cues, and optional performance enhancements. The 2013 Shelby GT350 is powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine offered in either a 430 HP normally aspirated version, a Ford Racing supercharged 525 HP, or a Ford Racing supercharged 624 HP version (which voided the manufacturer's powertrain warranty). Only 36 examples were built in 2013. This is one of only 2 examples built in Candy Red Metallic Tinted Clear coat.
