Carroll Shelby has died.
The automotive icon whose innovation and influence spanned more than a half-century was 89.
Keith Martin, publisher of Sports Car Market and American Car Collector, commented, “Carroll Shelby will be forever remembered as the man who single-handedly took the fight to Ferrari and beat them at their own game on their own race tracks. His spirit, his ingenuity and his ever-present sense of humor will be missed.”
