FS: 2012 Shelby GT500 "Red Mamba"

Hey guys,

It brings me a tear to my eye to sell my beloved GT500. Its been down a year for this build and it finally gets finished and I have to sell. Where I am moving, there isn't a place this bad-boy could handle, gravel roads/woods, closest track, 4.5 hours. I'm now looking to get into a new truck. I purchased the car last year and after putting some fun miles on it stock, I decided to build it into a national powerhouse. The car has 6,900 miles on it before the build. It currently has 409 miles on it from its brand new build from ground up.

This car has been built top to bottom and inside and out to be the monster it is and be able to lay down its power. I am the only owner and purchased the car last year BRAND NEW. MPR built the Engine and other components and Power by the Hour in Florida built the car for me. Ken Bjonnes from LUND RACING tuned the car producing 1,021 RWHP on only 22lbs of boost on E85. This car is scary at 1/2 throttle....very..but drives like butter. Could daily drive it honestly is drives so smooth.

Car has bad-ass nitrous setup but has NEVER been sprayed on build. It was put on to help cool the blower and intake charge while giving a little power. Cant get greedy! Engine was built to withstand 29lbs boost. Lots of custom parts made for this car from JLT intake to Nitrous plate by NX/ countless others. Here is the build list.

I have EVERY LAST PENNY in receipts that's been done to this car. Well north of $120,000 in parts and labor (including car). There has been no expense spared in this car, even down to the $2,000 Technocraft T2 race seat!

Tuned by Ken Bjonnes from LUND RACING on E85.

Highest HP 2012 Shelby GT500 in the country at 22 lbs of boost-no spray. 1021 RWHP. Motor is built to handle 29lbs of boost.

Motor still has Gibbs Break In oil!!!! Ready for a Synthetic change and go.

6,900 Miles on the car, Only 409 miles on Car Build. All Documented from shop mileage.

Im the only owner and bought it brand New last year. Put 6,000 miles on it, then decided to build it to what it is now.

CAR HAS NEVER BEEN RACED...NEVER SEEN THE STRIP. Just car shows. Although that was the plan eventually for the strip. Was about to pull the trigger on an Automatic conversion.

If anyone needs contacts or references on this car, feel free to ask. This car has seriously never seen the 1/4 and it hurts me, but its ok. I'm moving past the big HP stuff after my first child was just born.

All Receipts to everything that's ever been done to this Car.

Over $120,000 (including Car)

Any questions on the car, feel free to give me a shout.

$80,000 FIRM.

Check out the youtube video my buddy made. I was told to put on 500 "break in" miles before bringing back and changing the Gibbs break in oil to fresh synthetic. The 409 miles are highway pulls (not full throttle), cruising speeds, and in town stop and go to properly seat rings and break in clutch.


When I die, I want to die like my grandfather—who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Re: FS: 2012 Shelby GT500 "Red Mamba"

Thanks everyone for the kind words!!! the truth is, I question selling it every minute. It literally breaks my heart! but in all honesty, Im moving back to Minnesota and where im going, its a lot of offroad type driving, country boy. A far cry from the beautiful roads down here in Florida!. I could just get a truck, but trying to be responsible now and sell a toy for it. Just had a baby last month and its amazing! If I cant get it sold, then Ill just have no choice but bring it with and store it, hopefully pass it on to my son one day.

Here is another video my buddy made of some highway pulls. He has a 13' 5.0, and my other buddy has a jeep SRT8 with 750 RWHP and ran a 10.4 1/4 mile..you will see how my shelby pulls away effortlessly at about 90% throttle.. Not sure if anyone here has had an opportunity to ever ride or drive in a 1200 hp car that drives like it did off the lot, but its violent yet beautiful! That's due to proper a proper build and spot on tuning. Enjoy!

Make sure to watch it in HD to get that nice quality sound!!!

I just watched all the vids, that car is amazing, I think this car will smoke Slocum's, what is your asking price by the way-I can't buy it, but would like to know what it would take to get it.
