A visit to Shelby American is a must for any petrol-head.

I have always been into my cars (a real petrol-head) and the Shelby Cobra 427 has always been a car that would sit in my dream garage. So when in Las Vegas on my way to the... read more

I have always been into my cars (a real petrol-head) and the Shelby Cobra 427 has always been a car that would sit in my dream garage. So when in Las Vegas on my way to the airport a stop at Shelby American was a no brainer. In the heritage visitor centre, showroom and shop you can take a free... More

Well worth the time if you are even remotely a car enthusiast. Nice representations of both old and new. Taking pics is no problem and we took pleanty.... More

We did not make the guided tour, but did a self-tour of the floor and mechanics shop. Lots of stuff at the gift shop. Will me memorable for a car buff, but still nice for those that can appreciate a beautiful car.

Insanely cool. My oldest daughter loves cars and this place was off the hook. They have old and new classic American cars. Shelby is a legend without a doubt and really cool to learn more about the Icon. Plus you can see up close the new cars being assembled and tuned to high performance glory.

I am not a big car buff, but I drive past this place on my way to work and have been curious about it. When I had company in town, they wanted to check it out, so I went along. What a pleasant surprise! It was bigger than I thought, with a large gift shop and so many extraordinary cars... More

Very interesting hour and a half tour presented by Mr. Jim King. A lot of interesting facts and tidbits into Carrol Shelby and his influence on racing and car design. An experience that was well worth the time spent. BTW, if you have a boatload of money handy you can pickup a car or truck fresh off the factory floor.

This visit is at the top of our visits to Vegas. I've been twice with my teenager and would go again in a heartbeat. Tour is long though free and packed full of really interesting information. One gets a clear picture of Caroll Shelby's life and mastery. The cars and factory are also wonderful. If the kids get tired you... More

Was very excited to come to this place. But right from the start you are welcomed by an unexcited front desk reception who is bored from life. Then upon entry to the workshop area. An old man who could barely hear us starts saying we are closing for lunch, we say okay. Five minutes later we go to the exit... More

Our guide made the difference between a neat tour and a very informative tour... being car folks we knew quite a bit about shelby, and we walked out having learned a lot more than when we started. The shop was clean, there was clean restrooms, and the shelby store had a great variety. Tour was 1.5 hours in length.
