American custom performance carmaker Shelby is teaming up with Pune-based AJ Performance to bring some of its high-performance cars to India, reported Car And Bike.
AJ Performance is in charge of being the brand’s technical partner in India and will take care of the domestic sales, service and other various responsibilities.
While the company’s first release for India is still kept under wraps, Car And Bike reported that they believe that Shelby could be starting off their run in India with the Super Snake.
The Shelby Super Snake would be a great choice for the company to launch as it is sone of its most powerful offerings internationally. The latest version of the Shelby Super Snake is based on the 2018 Ford Mustang facelift and gets all its raw power from a 5.0-litre V8 engine. The Super Snake can go from 0-100 kmph in just 3.5 seconds with churns out 700 bhp of power.
Although the Super Snake is based on the Mustang, Shelby operates independent of Ford Motor Company, and that will continue in India too.
In the US, the Shelby Super Snake is priced at $113,445 (around ₹ 79 lakh), but the prices can easily be expected to be north of ₹ 1 crore (ex-showroom) in India, reported Car And Bike.
