Shelby is not the same Shelby. The quotes on his ChryCo work are incorrect. Both GLH-S models had over 200 hp, not 175. 175hp was the output of the non-intercooled turbo engine available on the Shelby Charger, Dodge Daytona, and Omni GLH. The inter-cooled versions of rare cars were much more powerful.

I would expect some sort of increased power output for my $15k. If this is all Shelby has to offer, then I imagine we won't see much more of them within 10 years of CS's death. The SuperSnake has already been trounced by less powerful and more easily attainable Camaros, and it will continue to be trounced unless they start experimenting with magnetic damping systems. Even if it can match the handling with stiffer springs and dampers, it won't be able to match the ride.
