A new Shelby Mustang will go on sale in 2006 - and it's a V6! Looking for the same combination of balance, power and agility as the legendary GT350, Shelby Automobiles decided to use a supercharged V6 as the powerplant for its newest Mustang, the CS 6, rather than a V8. The car is on display at the Vortech/Paxton booth at SEMA.

The centerpiece of the engine bay is a NOVI-1200 Paxton intercooled supercharger, which boosts the output of the V6 to more than 350 hp. Other performance enhancements include a suspension upgrade, Baer brakes and Borla dual exhaust.

Interior and exterior mods include:

  • Custom hood

  • Custom grilles

  • New front and rear fascia

  • Custom 20" American Racing wheels

  • Shelby Automobiles badging

      Sweet ride! Hail to 4.0L power! It is right at this point in time to give this motor/car its just dues! Carrol Shelby has just been given new respect in my book as he recognizes that the new '05-'06 V6 is a wolf in sheep's clothing and worthy of the attention that it will be getting. Stocker V8's beware! LOL!!!

      Come'on Guys... 350hp thats not bad. And who cares if its a 4.0SCV6. As long as its fast and performs wery well. And if that is still not enough, just wait for the GT500 at 450+hp. Its a real nice car. Craig H

      Great concept, except for the strips on the door. Looks like a flashback to the Mustang II Cobra. AAhhhh!!!!

      Completely ridiculous. What a waste. A big part of the reason the Mustang is cool is the sweet sounding V8. Shelby has gone senile.

      Wrong about the responsiveness of the centrifical supercharged v6. Centrifical superchargers add more power in the top end and does nothing in the lower rpms. I doubt the v6 + supercharger has that much wight savings over the aluminum block V8, plus the weight of the SC causes the CG to be shifted farther forward. Carroll Shelby has been all about marketing and the all mighty dollar for decades. I lost all respect for him since his embarrasing creations in the 80s

      The Buick Grand National was a hot car in its day. Late 80`s with a V6. Nice Mustang with Ford`s name. I agree to use the Shelby name a V8 would be more fitting.

      Ford uses a blown 4.0L V6 in several performance cars in Australia. namely i am thinking of the Falcon F6 Typhoon. i always thought they were a bit cooler than the V8 ones cause a big 6 with FI sounds like fun. though the "Boss 290" 5.4L V8 in a passenger car is pretty sweet in itself. don't know if the 4.0L V6 they have there is the same as the 4.0L V6 in the US. but i would imagine so. F6 Typhoon : http://www.fpv.com.au/index.asp?link_id=2.440 i can't possibly be the only one wishing the Falcon was sold here instead of the Crown Vic...

      West Coast Customs have horid build quality, all of the cars I have seen from them where falling apart within 6 months... It is nice that they went for a v6 for the true new Shelby Mustang. Should be better on the track then a GT or a gt500. The weight balance is better, and the v6 should be more responsive throughout the powerband. Plus the v6 should make it a killer in it's class. The v8's get put into an another class with SCCA???

      For those of you who have a Mustang V6, we (Shelby Automobiles) now offer a nifty upgrade package that will give you 350HP. It's all true. For those who have the Mustang GT, better get a supercharger if you want to keep up with the CS6. It's lighter, handles better, gets better mileage, accelerates faster, and brings about 50 more HP to the table. But don't forget the other options including suspension, exhaust, brake, and appearance upgrades. Couple that with a Shelby serial number and the car should hold its resale value much better than a stock Mustang GT. Carroll isn't senile, he recognizes that the V6 owners out there have been largely overlooked by the performance aftermarket. We're fixing that. We also have to remember we've got the GT500 coming out next summer and that makes things a bit more complex business-wise. What about the West Coast Customs/Shelby V8 Mustang? The fact that it's a limited-edition car is stirring lots of interest in collector circles. We're only going to make 25 of these. See http://www.shelbyautos.com for more info.

      So how much extra do you think you will be paying for this car with the Shelby name attached. I bet you pay A LOT more then you would for a new GT. If you want a blown sixer then buy a V6 stang and put a blower on it yourself!
