Ford Shelby GT 500 Wins Vehicle Design Award

SEMA's Awards Program Spotlighting Accessory Friendly Vehicles Chooses the Ford Shelby GT 500 in Best Car Category

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The high-performance Ford Shelby GT 500 was recognized as the most accessory friendly car at the 2006 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, capturing one of four SEMA Vehicle Design Awards and joining a prestigious list of past winners.

Each SEMA Vehicle Design Award recipient was part of a selection process that encompassed several SEMA member companies and automakers who regularly participate in technology sharing programs. These programs consist of various data sharing, measurement sessions and technology transfer initiatives which provide valuable information for each specialty equipment manufacturer to be in sync with the launch of new vehicles.

The SEMA Vehicle Design Awards were established to honor those newly introduced vehicles that best exemplify the alliance between the OEMs and SEMA-member companies. The awards recognize and celebrate the vehicles that a select group of voting members has chosen as the most accessory-friendly vehicles of the year. The Ford Shelby GT 500 received nearly 22 percent of the votes for 2006.

"The value of the increased collaboration with SEMA members is good for both our businesses and it's good for the customer," said John Clinard, Western Regional Manager, Ford Motor Company. "Our attitude about vehicle personalization is just pure enthusiasm, we share that with the people who buy our cars and with those who buy SEMA accessories and parts to put on our cars."

"Our participating manufacturing members had early access to the Ford Shelby GT and discovered that its unique design and muscular engineering provides several options for customer personalization," said Carl Sheffer, SEMA vice president, OEM Relations. "Based on feedback from the automakers, we are having a positive impact on the design and marketing of future vehicles."

SEMA reveals the winners of the Accessory Friendly Car, Truck, SUV and Hybrid categories at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the largest automotive specialty equipment trade event where thousands of new products are unveiled to visiting trade professionals.
