Rare investment opportunity. This one owner F40 has never been repaired or repainted and has been the property of the former factory driver winner of the 1994 Italian GT Championship season in 1994 with Ferrari F40 GT Michelotto

The mid-engine Ferrari F40  built from 1987 to 1992. The successor to the Ferrari 288 GTO, it was designed to celebrate Ferrari’s fortieth anniversary and was the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by Enzo Ferrari. At the time it was the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car that Ferrari sold to the public. Power came from an enlarged, 2.9 litre version of the GTO’s twin IHI turbocharged V8 developing 478bhp. The F40 did without a catalytic converter until 1990 when US regulations made them a requirement for emissions control reasons. The flanking exhaust pipes guide exhaust gases from each bank of cylinders while the central pipe guides gases released from the wastegate of the turbochargers.

Shelby.eu is the new international distribution and manufacturing operation set up with EU assembly of Shelby American tuned vehicles. We are delighted to be appointed as UK distributor of these new EU Shelby vehicles.

The name Shelby has long been synonymous with high-performance variants of the Ford mustang and were built by Shelby American from 1965 to 1967 and Shelby Automotive from 1968 To 1970. Following the introduction of the fifth generation Ford Mustang, the Shelby name was revived in 2007 for new high performance versions of the Mustang but this time designed and built by Ford.

 

The Grand Cherokee SRT is an exercise in overkill, but its sports-car-rivaling grip and roaring Hemi make it a performance powerhouse. A 475-hp 6.4-liter V-8 pairs with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, and launch control optimizes all relevant systems for maximum acceleration. The steering is quick, but given its sporting intentions, it feels more disconnected from the road than it should. The way the Grand Cherokee SRT can hustle around a track, it’s easy to forget it’s an SUV.

Under the hood, the Shelby F-150  is powered by Ford’s iconic 5.0L V8 engine with a supercharger to pump out over 750 horsepower. The result is a well-engineered truck with astonishing capabilities.

The Shelby F-150  wears unique Shelby styling that enhances the lines of the handsome truck. It features a new hood, rockers, spoilers, grills, rear bumper panel and tonneau cover.

Additional styling cues also include Shelby stripes and badges. Inside, the theme continues across the seats, dash and door.

Dodge’s latest monster muscle car is a mega-power drag-race special, and its name is Demon. Standard Demons come with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that cranks out 808 hp, but owners can increase that to 840 hp with the Demon Crate package. So equipped, the Demon will demolish the quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph, Dodge claims. Weight-saving measures have been taken wherever possible, and even passenger seats are optional. The Demon goes on sale in fall 2017; only 3000 will be produced

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat come with a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI engine, rated at 707 hp (527 kW) and 650 lb·ft (881 N·m) of torque. The inner driving light on the left front has been removed to allow air to get into the engine resulting in more torque, and the wheel wells are different from the standard SRT to accommodate the 20-inch aluminum wheels. The SRT Hellcat is quipped with two separate key fobs; use of the “black” fob limits engine output to 500 hp (370 kW), while the “red” fob enables full output capabilit

The F-150 Raptor is the new American badass. A 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 makes 450 hp and 510 lb-ft; it pairs with a 10-speed automatic. Rated at 18 mpg highway, it’s more efficient than previous models—if that matters to buyers. More important: In our testing, it hit 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. Standard all-wheel drive, which features a locking center diff, can auto-shift to the rear wheels depending on drive mode. SuperCab and SuperCrew models are offered.

In recent years, the quality and range of American cars have improved to such a level that many are comparable to EU vehicles but aside from the latest Mustang, all are only available from the factory in Left hand Drive. We have partnered up with an Australian owned business in Asia and now can offer a variety of models in Right Hand Drive converted to a standard pretty much indistinguishable from the factory product. The facility employs a skilled [...]
