Jon Gruden has officially been welcomed to Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Raiders head coach will now be driving around town in his new Raiders-themed Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 after it was gifted to him by Southern Nevada Ford Dealers.
The 2020 edition of the souped-up muscle car, decked out in a silver-and-black paint job with “Raiders” painted on top of the rear spoiler and the team’s famous pirate logo included on the ends was delivered to him on Monday.
The rest of the reads as:
“The Coach’s new GT500 is only the ninth model produced in a limited Shelby series nationwide and has been fully customized with racing stripes bearing the timeless Raiders colors plus a custom license plate inspired by Raiders legend Al Davis.
“That is Henry Ruggs III horsepower right there,” Gruden said. He continued, saying his new GT500 is “the best thing I will ever own, next to my Super Bowl trophy.”
Welcome to the family, Coach Gruden! We are beyond thrilled by our new partnership, and cannot wait to see the incredible things you will bring to Las Vegas.”
The Shelby GT500 features a 5.2-liter V-8 engine, boasting a top speed of 186 mph powered by 745 horsepower.
What a welcome!
