50th Anniversary Shelby American Super SnakeJanuary 21st, 2017
The forced-air induction upgraded V8 engine configuration makes 670hp with optional Whipple or Kenne Bell superchargers packing up to 750 hp. When properly equipped Shelby American says that the new Super Snake can go from 0-to-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, run the quarter mile in 10.9-seconds, and pull 1.2g on the skid pad – all very impressive figures for a Mustang.
Other upgrades include Wilwood brakes, 20″ forged aluminum wheels, and performance dampers, sway bars, springs, and bushings. All these are wrapped up in custom bodywork, including a Shelby-engineered hood, grilles, rockers, rocker splitters, front splitter, rear spoiler, rear tail panel, rear diffuser and lower rear splitter, as well as custom LED fog lights and turn signals.
There will only be 500 50th anniversary Super Snakes available globally, and pricing including that base Mustang will start at $69,995. If you bring your own Mustang GT, the package alone costs $36,795. No word on the added cost of those larger superchargers.
