Awww, that means I get to see him…. Anyway, this new Super Snake package happens to be the most powerful one that Shelby has offered. The standard Super Snake package allows output from the supercharged 5.4-liter V-8 to go from 550 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque to an impressive 750 horsepower and 590 pound-feet. Or if you want even more horsepower, buyers can spend an extra $1500 for a polished Kenne Bell supercharger that allows that output to jump to 800 horsepower. This fine piece of machinery is car is legal in all 50 states AND it still takes pump-grade gasoline (premium grade, of course (93 grade, duh).
Additional extras on the 2012 Ford GT500 Super Snake include a six-speed manual transmission with short-throw shifter, forged Shelby/Baer brakes with six-piston calipers, and a one-of-a-kind fiberglass hood fashioned after the 1967 GT500. A handling pack, sourced from Ford Racing, throws in dynamic adjustable dampers, lowering springs, tuned stabilizer bars and a front strut tower brace as well.
Pricing for the Super Snake package starts at $34,245. The car itself starts at $48,645, which you would need before you shell out the $34,245. Basically, this would run for a tiny bit under $100,000. If you’re interested in building one, you can do it at http://shelbyamerican.com/buildhome.asp.
I need to get my hands on one the next time I go to LA. I told Glasses Malone that I would
race explain what makes a Mustang so great to him and I can leave him in the dust test the Mustang against his Camaro SS. Also, Along with the Super Snake, Shelby also plans to show off its 2012 GT350 coupe and convertible.
Again, Funkmaster Flex would be so proud. I wonder what trim level Mustang does he have…
