It isn’t often that I stumble onto a (ostensibly) production car that I’ve never seen nor heard about…but it happened again. This next thing is #96 of 300 built from 1999-2000 of the limited Shelby Durango SP-360 Super Pursuit. Shelby took the basic Durango (the Dodge, not the Ford) in viper blue, added a Kenne Bell (who is not a country singer…despite my initial assumptions) supercharger to the 5.9 liter Magnum V8 for 360 hp, added custom wheels, suspension, bumpers…and finished the masterpiece with a splash of white racing stripes running the length of the vehicle. The end result is an almost 5000 lb vehicle that can hit 60mph in 7.1 seconds and reach 142 mph…impressive for 1999, and almost unheard of. Find this 1999 Shelby Dodge Durango SP-360 Super Pursuit offered for $22,900 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist.
