GT500E Super Snake from Unique Performance

Unique Performance Ford Mustang Shelby GT500ECarroll Shelby built only one 427 GT500 “Super Snake” in 1967, which set new performance standards for speed and performance at the time. The mighty G.T.500E Super Snake is a modern evolution of that legendary car.

Built for Shelby by Unique Performance, the G.T.500E Super Snake is the most powerful regular production Shelby (based on a Ford Mustang) ever offered to the public. Each car features a 525 HP aluminum Shelby 427 engine, Unique Performance rear suspension, Tremec transmission and many modern performance upgrades, as well as special badges and striping. With an optional supercharger, this Shelby churns out an earth shaking 725 horsepower.

In 2002, Carroll Shelby and Unique Performance agreed to produce continuation Shelbys based on vintage 1960s Ford Mustangs with updated performance and comfort. Chip Foose has also partnered with Unique Performance building the Foose Stallion.
