The car is being finished up at this time at Panteras By Wilkinson.  I test drove it a few weeks ago.  Practically every part of the car was modified/touched.  Custom hood and decklid were necessary as well as boxes cut into the wheel wells to clear the heads.   Cooling pack  size caused the trunk area to be modified.  The motor is a 2006 Ford GT crate motor and the stock ZF with an additional of an overdrive 5th.  Dual disc clutch is used. The car is modified so the transaxle slides out the back.  The rear window was modified to be removable with fasteners and a bubble placed in it to clear the supercharger pulley.  The firewall opening enlarged to get to the wide engine.  Dual connected gas tanks of about 27 gallons and able to be fueled from either side.

The interior has custom SPARCO seats made for the 2005 Shelby show car.  The are essentially Ford GT seats that have been cut down.   Interior is matte carbon fiber from Wilkinson and the steering wheel is matte carbon fiber from NRG with a quick release.  Backup camera is necessary as the decklid was raised in the middle to clear the supercharger.

Currently In the process of trying to get Collector Car insurance on it.
