You see, this is one of the cars used by the <a href="http://autoblog.com/tag/shelby/">Shelby</a> American team in the development of a long list of classic Shelby Mustang models.<br /><br />The car, powered by a 390-cubic-inch V8 engine and known internally as The Green Hornet, underwent a huge number of upgrade sessions that saw it receive experimental fuel injection, independent rear suspension and unique disc brakes. That's right, a Ford Mustang with IRS!<br /><br />In a somewhat baffling turn of events, despite a top bid of $1.8 million, The Green Hornet's reserve price wasn't met, meaning it stays with its current owner for at least one more auction cycle.
