Street Legal “Super Snake” – GT500 On Steroids

Rendering of what the Super Snake Might Look LikeJust when you thought things were good… they get better. Carrol Shelby has announced yet another new special edition Mustang, dubbed the “Super Snake”. Likely inspired by the 427 cubic inch GT500 Super Snake built back in 1967 (and recently re-animated by Chip Foose), this version promises to lay down the law with up to 725 horsepower – and yes you heard that right.

“Mustang enthusiasts are demanding more from both Ford Racing and Shelby Autos” said Jamie Allison, Manager of Ford Racing Performance Group. “The GT500 Super Snake package, with its higher horsepower levels and balanced track-inspired tuning, satisfies those demands and then some … in a uniquely Ford – Shelby way.”

Super Snake Highlights Include

• Ford Racing Supercharger upgrade kit

• 6-speed manual transmission with 3.73:1 rear axle ratio

• Ford Racing performance exhaust system

• Ford Racing Handling Pack offering unique performance suspension tuning including Dynamic adjustable dampers, lowering springs, tuned stabilizer bars, and front strut tower brace

• Shelby-designed Alcoa 20-inch wheels

• Ford Racing short-throw shifter

• Baer 6 piston brakes with Shelby cast calipers and larger rotors

• Front brake cooling ducts

• Unique carbon composite hood featuring classic Shelby design

• ‘Shelby’ lettering across the front edge of hood and rear decklid

• ‘Super Snake’ vehicle badging

• Carroll Shelby signature embroidered headrests, floor mats and other Shelby designed components

• Official Shelby CSM dash plate


The full Super Snake package will be available only through Shelby Automobiles, and of course the 725 horsepower mule won’t come with a warranty (though there will be a 600 horsepower Snake which will). Look to find these sometime around June.

“I told them that I wanted to build a vehicle that could blow the doors off of most anything on the planet.” says Carrol Shelby “By partnering with Ford Racing, we’re giving enthusiasts a Mustang with that level of performance.”
