LAS VEGAS — The 1,200-horsepower 2013 Shelby 1000 S/C, which is based on the Ford Shelby GT500, will aim to steal the spotlight at the 2013 New York Auto Show.

The Shelby 1000 S/C package starts at $154,995, not including the $55,445 base price of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. That pegs the base price of the Shelby 1000 S/C at $210,440.

The stock 2013 Shelby GT500 cranks out 662 hp.

Shelby American said it strips the 5.8-liter V8 engine down to the block, "strengthens the internals and then cranks up the power." Other details include an adjustable suspension with a performance cooling package, launch control and big brakes.

The 2012 Shelby 1000 debuted at the 2012 New York Auto Show to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary.

"We're bringing back the Shelby 1000 to New York, but with Ford's new 2013 Shelby GT500 as the base car," said John Luft, president of Shelby American, in a statement. "With its new engine, launch control, adjustable suspension and other new enhancements, we've created a car with even more capabilities."

A limited production of 100 2013 Shelby 1000s will be built.

Shelby American said it will unveil another unnamed vehicle at the 2013 New York Auto Show.

"Like the Shelby Focus ST, it will not be Ford Mustang based," said Shelby American in a statement.

Edmunds says: Shelby American will not be sitting on the sidelines in the Big Apple, as it lays claim to the most powerful street production muscle car at the 2013 New York Auto Show.
