GreenLight 2010 & 2011 Shelby GT500

Oct 17, 2012 1 Comment by

Mustang fans better get their shelves ready; GreenLight has partnered with Shelby to deliver a pair of 1:18 2010/2011 Mustangs outfitted as Shelby GT500s.  It’s a cool looking pair – one black with red and white “performance” stripes, and the other Kona Blue with white stripes, both rolling on distinctive graphite-colored Shelby wheels and toting serious firepower under their scooped hoods. We’re pretty excited by these new colors – our red GT500 from the last batch of these cars is still a favorite around here, and these models stand as GL’s most detailed releases, ever.

After some time with these press photos, we can see that that level of finesse is carried over to this latest pair: from the fully wired and plumbed engines to the realistic hinges and carpeted interior, these power ponies offer a ton of realism for a very agreeable price.  Don’t sweat it – we’ll get some in for a  full review here on the site ASAP.

About the author

I have been a car guy since my early teens. From managing a performance center on Long Island NY to being a partner of the world’s largest traveling global car show series; my career path has taken me on an exciting journey. I have consulted for MTV, McDonalds, Turtle Wax, Dodge and other high profile companies and have been published in multiple automotive journals. Alpha Penguin Publishing recruited me to co-author “The Complete Idiots Guide to Customizing Your Ride” for which one of my cars graces the cover.My diecast addiction began about 12 years back. My girlfriend at the time knew I was saving for a Mustang Cobra. She thought it would be humorous and purchased a diecast version to hold me over for a while. What was an initial joke struck a chord because I was fascinated with how Hot Wheels could make such a cool replica for a buck. The next time we went shopping I stopped in the toy aisle and ended up purchasing additional Hot Wheels and a few Jada vehicles. Well you all know the story from here; one shelf led to a book case. The book case quickly became an apartment filled with hundreds of HotWheels, Jada and other 1:64th scale replicas. Next came my introduction to 1:24th and 1:18th scale die cast and twelve years later I am the proud owner of a collection that is displayed in a 2000sq foot facility with a current count of over 12 thousand unique pieces. My then girlfriend, now wife, has a lot of patience for my hobby and my two little girls enjoy it with us too.Today I find myself fascinated with all scales and all models of customized vehicles. From tuners to rat rods, lead sleds to pro street drag. I do have an appreciation for the well delivered OEM vehicles as well. Most of all I enjoy the hunt to complete a set or series of vehicles. I look forward to being a part of DieCast X Magazine and helping to strengthen, grow and deliver our hobby to people who do not know how rewarding it is to an individual and a family.
