Automotive manufacturer and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby is one of the most famous and successful high performance visionaries in the world. His arrival on the race scene, first as a driver and then as a manufacturer of high-performance vehicles for both track and street, quickly redefined what true performance meant. Shelby was also a pioneer for modern automotive licensing programs; beginning in the 1960s, he began licensing his name and designs for various products. His influence was so considerable that even competitors often wore clothing featuring Shelby trademarks. The brand united a wide range of enthusiasts who held Shelby in undeniable admiration and esteem.
He founded Carroll Shelby Licensing Inc. in 1988, which is the exclusive holder of trademarks and vehicle design rights for some of the most recognized muscle cars and high-performance vehicles produced. Today, Carroll Shelby Licensing product lines include cars, car parts, component vehicles, aftermarket styling and performance parts, toys and hobby products, collectibles and memorabilia, computer and electronic games, graphics and art, film and entertainment properties, branded apparel and accessories.
CSL has over 150 licensees throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia and a staff dedicated to cultivating additional licensing partners and programs that continue to reach new heights in supporting the timeless brand they represent.
