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
