The New Shelby Super Snake And Its 750 Horses
|   Thursday, July 09, 2015
If you feel that American coupes are lagging behind their European counterparts, then rejoice: Shelby American has an offer hard to refuse. Called the Super Snake, the car is constructed on the base of the Mustang GT coupe and the top version comes with a V8 engine that produces 750 horsepower!

The V8 engine displacing 5.0 liters on the top version of the Ford Mustang coupe is received from the Shelby tuning workshop, via Kenne Bell or Whipple supercharger.
Thus, power was increased to 750 horsepower. Further on, the engine is mated to a 6 speed mechanical transmission or an automatic one. It is true however, that dynamic performances have not been announced yet.

This way, with the new Super Snake, the people at Shelby American are giving a reply to the Hellcat models produced by GM. Shelby Super Snake, for the first time, was developed to be marketed outside the US for everyone to benefit from the performance of this supercar.

Officials say that changes were made to the suspension and cooling systems, and an exhaust system from Borla was installed plus brakes signed by Wilwood with 6-piston calipers.

On the outside, a bodywork kit from carbon fiber appeared, consisting of a splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, giant hood vent, the rear view mirrors carcasses and rear spoiler. The standard set of wheels was replaced with a Weld Racing one, with a diameter of 20 inches. The tires are Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

The interior received "Shelby" inscriptions platelets with the order number of car and a ball-shaped lever. Shelby representatives say that in 2015 they will produce only 300 Shelby Super Snake copies, each copy costing 49,995 dollars, a price that does not include the original Mustang GT's cost.

"When Shelby American introduced the 605 horsepower Super Snake in 2007, the car became an instant sensation. The new Super Snake is even better because the all new Ford Mustang is such a terrific platform for the iconic muscle car. By working closely with our partners at Ford Performance, Weld Racing, Michelin, Carbon by Design and Whipple and Kenne Bell superchargers, the 2015 Shelby Super Snake is an amazing car with world-class performance" declared Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American and co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International.

The Americans know best how to build a muscle car. Therefore, to get the best results those from Shelby American shook hands with the folks from Ford Performance.
"Shelby American and the Ford team took the terrific Mustang to new extremes in the car's performance capabilities. The close relationship between Ford Racing and Shelby demonstrates our ability to work together to deliver some of the most exciting Mustangs ever built. The Shelby Super Snake is another example of how we are developing the kind of cars that enthusiasts want" Henry Ford III, Ford Performance marketing manager, said.

Ford Mustangs are manufactured the Flat Rock, Michigan, plant and the Shelby Super Snake is built at Shelby American in Las Vegas.
