1999 Shelby Series 1 by Adry53 1999 Shelby Series 1 by Adry53
Shelby Series 1 was a high-performance roadster designed by Carroll Shelby and produced by Shelby American.

It was powered by Oldsmobile's 4.0 L L47 Aurora V8 DOHC engine. It has 320 hp (324 PS) at 6500 rpm, 290 lb·ft (390 N·m) at 5000 rpm and will do 0-60 mph (0–96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and records 12.8 seconds in the quarter mile at 112 mph (180 km/h). Top speed is 170 mph (273.5 km/h) (15 mph (24 km/h) faster than the 427 Shelby Cobra). The 1998 car weighed 1,202 kg (2,650 lb).

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 were constructed by Shelby American, Inc., all as 1999 models.


The car model was a conversion from a game "Forza Motorsport 3"
all of the textures are failure in conversion.. so I arranged the paint and the materials by self.

I really don't get what is the point of ripping a model file from a game and adding it to your own dA gallery. Unless you work for Turn10 and actually made the model yourself. But then again, you wouldn't need to rip it from the game in the first place if that was the case...
