Getting back into the pickup market was no accident for Shelby American. The company saw an interest in a V-8-powered performance-built truck and responded accordingly. Supposedly the move had to do with customers wanting a V-8, not a twin-turbo V-6, that drove Shelby to produce its pickup. Showing a concept at the SEMA Show led to a slight frenzy from the media, which fanned the flames and sealed the deal.

 

This one is Shelby CSM 22ST0498, and it’s powered by a supercharged 5.0L/775 HP V-8 fitted with a carbon fiber intake system and backed by a 10-speed automatic transmission and stability and traction control. Finished in Carbonized Gray with black striping and a painted tonneau cover, it’s also equipped with tinted glass, specialized front end treatments and a host of other noir detailing, right down to the wheels. However, breaking up the darker mood are red calipers that bite down on the 4-wheel disc brakes. The interior features gray leather upholstery with red accents and stitching, carbon fiber trim, front bucket seats with a center console, billet racing pedals, a power seat, power windows, power locks, cruise control and navigation. The Shelby is accompanied by a window sticker, a Shelby Authentication Certificate and even a Whipple Supercharger Tomahawk V2 diagnostic computer, No. 12739.

 

Long in the business of producing some of the world’s most exclusive and best-performing cars, the latest generation of Shelby pickups has proven itself as a remarkable asset to the brand. According to Shelby, they are capable of thundering their way from zero to 60 MPH in less than 4 seconds; with that alone, anyone can ascertain this will cross the quarter-mile in a stunning time and top out at a level largely unheard of in the truck segment. By exclusivity, only a small handful are made every year, and each is prepped and tested by hand, creating a truly bespoke product.
