28 May 1999 Shelby Series One Roadster For Sale
We just got word that this amazing and unique 1999 Shelby Series One Roadster is up for sale in Danville California. I have never had the pleasure of seeing one of these on the road but I am thoroughly full of want just from these pictures alone. I am a sucker for rare roadsters! This Shelby Series One is #184 of of 248 ever made, and this car is an investment as the price will only go up from here. This Shelby comes with 0 miles on it which is to be expected although I’d be horribly tempted to take this on the road at least a few times….cars like this are meant to be driven. Clearly I shouldn’t be a car collector.
This 99 Series One is powered by Oldsmobile’s 4.0 L L47 Aurora V8 DOHC engine which packs 320 hp at 6500 rpm, and 290 lb·ft at 5000 rpm. It’s not slouch and with the light weight it will do 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds and it has done 12.8 seconds in the quarter mile at 112 mph. The Series One top speed is 170 mph which is 15 mph faster than the 427 Shelby Cobra.
This car is currently at CTR Motorsports in Livermore CA and you can contact Rick Boysal by land line via 888-375-3050 or get him on his cell phone at 925-808-1401 from 9-6pm PST. You can also check out this cars history via the VIN which is 5CXSA1815XL000184. There apparently is a bid of $75,000 for this car up but the price tag on her is $119,000 USD and I’d expect this to fetch that price as this is a rare gem.
