Las Vegas, Nev. – Feb. 6, 2014 – Shelby Performance Parts (SPP), a division of Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc. (CSBI:PK), has introduced new performance equipment and Shelby gear to help enthusiasts gear up for the track days when the spring season begins. The new parts add serious performance to the 2005-2014 Shelby GT and Mustang GT and the 2007-2011 Shelby GT500.

The fresh lineup features a Shelby Eibach Pro Coil Over Kit suspension system, Shelby Extreme Duty Heat Exchanger to keep a supercharged motor cool, as well as trackside gear including a Navy Polo Shelby GT shirt, a Shelby Racing Jacket and of course, a genuine Shelby Racing Helmet.

“With racing circuits across the country scheduled to reopen soon, it is the perfect time to prepare for upcoming track days,” said Shelby Performance Parts Vice President Jer Gervasi. “We designed our new products to deliver significant improvements in performance. From our pro coil over suspension kit offering the ultimate in handling, to a heat exchanger that keeps those ponies running cool, Shelby Performance Parts is the one-stop shop for gear-heads and enthusiasts.”

An important aspect for all kinds of spirited driving, the Shelby Eibach Pro Coil Over suspension kit offers superior handling for the track or street. Created for any 2007-2011 Shelby GT500, the kit includes adjustable front and rear struts, shocks and jounce bumpers. The stainless steel-bodied coil over package allows drivers the ability to easily adjust the ride height and corner weight of each individual wheel, offering the ultimate in flexibility for precise street and track tuning.

High performance is about more than horsepower; it is critical to keep those horses cool. Any supercharged or force-fed motor will produce prodigious amounts of heat, which can cause premature engine wear. Shelby Performance Parts has the solution with the Shelby Extreme Duty Heat Exchanger, featuring dual puller fans. The piece uses a proprietary single row NASCAR core with a dual pass system, significantly reducing power-robbing heat soak. The piece bolts up to any 2005-2014 Shelby GT or Mustang GT.

Once a car is ready for battle on the track, it’s time add some style like the Shelby factory test drivers. The exclusive SFI-rated Shelby Racing Jacket, manufactured by Impact Racing, features a high quality inner lining and a Nomex outer shell for increased protection and durability. With the Shelby racing logo across the back, it’s as stylish as it is functional.

Pair the jacket with the professional Shelby Racing Helmet that is tailored specifically on each order for a snug fit. Sporting the Shelby logo and striping, the outer contact shell of each helmet is constructed from a low density, lightweight Z38 Fiberglass, Carbon and Kevlar® composite blend. The helmet is then painted in a rich white or black gloss, finished off with a protective clear coating, then striped and logoed to match a customer’s car. The helmet utilizes an ingenious vent system that siphons air through the chin bar ports, around the interior padding and out the top and rear vents; this will help keep the head cool on the hot track.

For Shelby GT owners, SPP has released a Navy Polo Shelby GT shirt. From the Carroll Shelby Collection, the navy blue cotton shirt sports the GT logo snake and the Shelby Auto logo on the sleeve.
