Both cars belonged to and were driven by legendary automotive designer and race driver Carroll Shelby. On December 15 you have the chance to own a timepiece - not only incorporating a piece of metal from two legends, but also captivating the unique design of both cars.
The hunt for
LITTLE RED is a one-off experimental 1967 Prototype Shelby Mustang GT500 EXP Coupe. She was ordered by Carroll Shelby, when he came back from the Le Mans in 1966 with Ford’s first overall win and became his R&D car.
Countless enthusiasts and experts have searched for Little Red since she went missing in the 1960s, but it wasn’t until March 3rd, 2018 she was discovered in rural North Texas by a team led by car collector, Craig Jackson.
GREEN HORNET is a one-off 1968 Shelby GT500 EXP Coupe. She was an experimental styling car with Shelby scoops and a rear spoiler. The car was given to Carroll Shelby by Ford, who started experimenting on the car with the newest tech that Ford was secretly working on: An electronic fuel injection, which made the apple green Mustang way ahead its time.
