Come Slither: Shelby Super Snake is the ultravenomous version of Mustang GT500
By Arthur St. Antoine
Perhaps you can't wait for the spring 2008 release of the Shelby GT500KR. Or perhaps a 540-horse supercharged Mustang is "merely adequate." What you need, then, is a Super Snake.
An ultravenomous version of the GT500, the Super Snake is a pure Shelby special-a limited-edition, hyperpowered Mustang built with mostly Shelby parts in the company's Vegas assembly facility. Deliver your GT500 to Shelby, fork over the requisite cash (pricing had not been set at press time, but expect to pay around $10K for the upgrade), and in a few weeks you'll have a Super Snake of your very own.
The bodywork closely mirrors the KR's-including a KR hood, hood pins, Shelby stripes, brake ducts, and the 20-inch forged Alcoa rims seen on the KR showcar. Inside, the Super Snake sports new gauges (boost/oil and fuel pressure), custom Shelby sill plates, a Ford Racing short-throw shifter, and a numbered dash plaque.
The best stuff lies under the hood. Utilizing the KR's cold-air intake and a new, larger-capacity Ford Racing supercharger, the Super Snake will romp with over 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, standard. Not enough? With optional tuning, Shelby will provide up to 725 ponies providing you're prepared to give up your warranty. This special Shelby will also get the Ford Racing Handling Pack, including stiffer, adjustable dampers, lowering springs, a front strut tower brace, and beefier stabilizer bars. The lower 3.73 rear axle of the GT500KR should provide for some blistering acceleration figures and the Baer six-piston brakes with super-sized rotors are employed to bring the Super Snake back to a standstill.
Shelby says the Super Snake will be in even shorter supply than the GT500KR. Production will start late this year, with most required parts also available separately from both Ford Racing and Shelby Automobiles by June. Earsplitting burnouts soon to follow. 2006 Shelby Ford Mustang Super Snake Web Design by Roy McClanahan RemcoGraphics.com
