Celebrity Cars is pleased to offer this very RARE, estimated 1 of 20 supercharged, 1 of 6 black as verified with Shelby America. There were a total of 249 built. It also has, the only known all-black interior via special order from Carroll Shelby himself. They all came with black and grey two-tone interiors. Among other rarities with this car, it is one of the few cars that was ordered directly with a bill of sale from Shelby America. Almost all the other cars were purchased through their dealer network.
Our research finds that 6 were made in black and a handful in other colors. The majority of the Shelby Series 1s were in Silver. Colors other than silver are, needless to say, rare and are becoming highly desired. Danny Count Koker of Counting Cars and Counts Kustoms has one of the only other black Shelby Series 1s. His is not supercharged.
The Shelby 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. This hand-built, limited-production sports car is 1 of 249 produced. The series 1 is powered by an Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0 L race motor, was itself a variation of General Motors Northstar V-8. The base engine made 320 horsepower, but this is one of the supercharged examples that turn up the power rating to 474 HP
The V8 comes with dual overhead camshafts, sequential fuel injection and high-flow dual exhaust. It is also set back in the chassis in a mid-front mount configuration for optimal 50/50 balance. The engine is mated to a ZF 6-speed manual transmission. The chassis is comprised of an aluminum frame with a race-derived double wishbone independent suspension. The published 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds and its top speed is 170 mph make it one of the. The carbon-fiber and fiberglass-composite body is painted silver with the stripe delete package. The Cobra-style aluminum pop-up fuel filler cap creates an attractive race car detail. The interior is comprised of leather bolstered seats with power-adjusted sport controls. Much of the interior components came from General Motors, including the premium Monsoon sound system. Power windows and locks, along with air conditioning, provide comfort and convenience. Power steering and 4-wheel power disc brakes deliver confident road control.
This is one of the few that has been actually driven a little with just over 17k miles. It runs and sounds great and drives as it should. We have done some cosmetic cleanup and polishing to get it to be a great shiny black mirror finish thats better than how they came from Shelby. The headlight covers have been replaced as well as the seats were refurbished and look new. It has a clean Carfax report and is a non smoking vehicle. We welcome pre-purchase inspections as well as we are happy to video chat/facetime with the car. Feel free to call us with any questions.
