40th Anniversary Performance Upgrades


Ciera500

Recommended Posts

My car arrived at SAI yersterday for the 40th package (XL0029). My car is scheduled to be completed by November 06. At this time, I was told that only the 40th package is available. No power upgrades or any modifications to the 40th package. My car is a vert. With the current discussions regarding body twisting with the verts, I am happy to leave the car stock. Cynthia at SAI said the modifications will not be available before November.

Ciera, I have been trying to find out the same thing. My car is supposed to be sent in around mid Nov, but I'm looking at possibly doing the 600hp. I talked to Cynthia about a month ago and they had no numbers yet for the upgrades, but she has a list of people to call once they do. I'm probably going to do at least the brake system. Bright Red Calipers with Shelby written on them, peeking though my black Razors, should look pretty good. :D

PRODUCTION UPDATE

We have started building the 40th Anniversary packages. We will call the next group in mid August to schedule in more cars. Our plans are to build 300 of these packages this year. We will continue to build them until all cars are built. If you cannot have your car here this year, this is no problem. As long as you have a 2007 GT500, we can build it into a 40th car. We will only stop building these once we have reached the production limit.

 

SHIPPING

We are also working with a few shipping companies to try to help save you money. Once we have a better schedule, we will be working with you to help get your car shipped to us and then back home. Of course you can chose your own company or pick up and deliver the car yourself.

07-year model

You must request that your take off parts are returned before we begin modifying your car.

We will not be responsible for any damages that these parts may incur during removal or shipping.

Any parts that will fit into the trunk or back seat of the car will be shipped to you in it. The other parts will be packaged and shipped to you for a Shipping and Handling fee.

 

Shelby GT500 Super Snake Update

 

PRODUCTION UPDATE

 

The Super Snake project will begin in the 4th Quarter this year. We have only built one Super Snake, the concept car. Many of you have already seen pictures of this beast and some have actually seen it in person. “Menacing” is the best word I have heard used to describe it.

 

Super Snake upgrades are available for all GT500 07’ and 08’ model year cars. You supply the base GT500.

 

We have started making calls for the Super Snake and taking deposits and assigning CSM numbers. We have lots of calls to make and we will make them in the order that we received requests.

 

The CSM Numbering of the Super Snake will look like this:

07SS0001

08SS0001

 

07,08- year model

SS- Super Snake

0001-sequencing number.

 

A 40th anniversary grill badge will be optional for all 07’ Super Snakes.

 

Adrienne Poplin will be the point of contact on the Super Snake. 702-942-7325 or e-mail at adriennep@shelbyautos.com. She will be very busy for the next few weeks making calls on the Super Snake. Any general questions about the package can also be answered by Doug Sinclair, at the same number or dougs@shelbyautos.com.

 

STRIPES

All Super Snake packages will get triple Matte Black Stripes. No exceptions, we want people to be able to recognize this outstanding package from a distance and know exactly what it is…..especially when it approaches in their review view mirror…..time to move over…. If you haven’t ordered your car yet and want this package it should be ordered without a stripe to make the conversion cleaner as the old stripes will have to be removed if they are already installed.

 

Super Snake parameters are as follows:

2007 or 2008 GT500.

Coupe or Convertible

Price for the 600HP and 700+HP version is $27995.00. If testing requires a different blower at the 725HP level, we will evaluate the price.

Convertible max power is the 600HP package. NO EXCEPTIONS.

OTHER SUPER SNAKE QUESTIONS

We will be offering a discount on the Super Snake package if it is built on the 08’ GT500KR. This discount has not been established. Stay tuned as we finalize the price and content.

 

OTHER QUESTIONS

On both packages, we will only give credit for previously modified cars if the components have been purchased from Shelby Performance Parts. The components that we will give credit for must be one of the components used in our package. We will credit you in the amount of the cost for the parts only, not labor. Floor mats are excluded because the mats are different.

 

Thank you for your continued interest in genuine Shelby Performance packages. They truly make your Shelby something special. Your business and satisfaction are important to us.

 

Best regards,

Team Shelby.

 

 

Its a full brake system. Calipers, pads, rotors, etc.... From what I read.

 

SAI-John, from looking at the site, it doesn't look like there is a colored caliper optionfor the rear. With this package will the rears match?
