In a double-coup win, Mr. Willy Tee Ten, Autohub Group president, revealed that the Autohub Group will be the official distributor of Shelby performance parts in the Philippines, (aside from the Triumph Motorcycle distributorship). The Shelby brand has been synonymous with extreme performance since the 1960s, and famously developed the iconic Cobra race cars, including the infamous GT40 Le Mans winner, and the Shelby GT350 and GT500 Mustangs. Shelby continues the tradition by outfitting V8-powered Mustangs and F150 trucks with various power-enhancing parts as well as body kits.
Mr. Allen Pascual, General Manager for the Shelby brand, said that current Mustangs with V8 engines could be retrofitted with the all the components needed to make a clone of the GT500; from superchargers, to exhaust systems, and everything in between. You want the Shelby look? Get the exterior kit. While you’re at it, order the ultra wide tire/rim combination.
Importing parts is actually cheaper than importing a whole car–which is taxed extensively. The customer can pick anything from its extensive parts catalogue, and Autohub will bring it in.
“It is our distinct honor to be the exclusive distributor of Shelby in the country. As always, we will ensure that the Autohub Group will deliver top-notch service for our discerning clientele. “We are looking forward to the continued patronage of our loyal customers, as well as the support of our ever-enthusiastic friends from the media.” stated Willy Tee Ten.
Aside from engine parts, aero kits, wheel and rim combinations, Autohub-Shelby will also make Shelby apparel available to customers. Talk about completing the look.
The Autohub-Shelby store is in the final planning stage and will commence operation by mid January, 2020. We can’t wait!
