Shelby Automobiles Announces Final Content of Shelby ''Super Snake'' Package


VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Executives with Shelby Automobiles have finalized the content of their Super Snake post-title package. Earlier this year, Shelby Automobiles and Ford Racing unveiled a package to transform a limited number of 2007 and 2008 Ford Shelby GT500s into fire breathing "Super Snake" coupes and convertibles for US$27,995.00 at 600HP and approximately $31,995.00 for the 725HP version coupes.


"At Shelby Autos, we believe that life needs more," said Amy Boylan, President of Shelby Automobiles. "That's why we've teamed up with the best in the business to offer a Ford Shelby GT500 with even more punch. Working together, we've developed one mean pony car that puts out more power and balanced performance than any other American production car on the road."


The Super Snake post-title package will include enhancements to the Ford Shelby GT500's handling, styling and power. The main 600 horsepower package includes a Ford Racing supercharger with a warranty and components developed exclusively for the car with Shelby's partner, Ford Racing. The package can be applied to either a coupe or convertible with Borla exhaust, 20" Alcoa made forged aluminum wheels and a host of styling components for the rambunctious Shelby.


"We're always looking around the corner for new ways to deliver balanced performance that's unlike anything else on the road," said Jamie Allison, Manager of Ford Racing Performance Group. "The GT500 Super Snake package, with its higher horsepower levels and balanced track-inspired tuning, satisfies those demands and then some...in a uniquely Ford – Shelby way."


For those who feel they need even more power but are not concerned about a warranty, Shelby worked with Kenne Bell to develop a 725 horsepower program, which is available without a warranty, for the Super Snake coupes. The Shelby / Kenne Bell package is matched to a JBA exhaust and a custom drive shaft to handle the additional power. An adjustable Eibach suspension package is available for an extra cost.


The GT500 Super Snake package includes:


  • - Ford Racing handling pack including Dynamic adjustable dampers, lowering springs, tuned stabilizer bars, and front strut tower brace is standard for the Super Snake
    - Ford Racing Supercharger upgrade kit producing over 600 HP and 590 ft.-lbs. of torque <LI class=bwlistitemmarginbottom>Borla exhaust system on the 600 HP Ford Racing Super Snake Package
