Shelby is launching the newest Mustang to wear the famous Super Snake badge, which will be based on the 2015 model Mustang GT.
With the option of over 750 bhp, as well as performance upgrades to the handling, braking and cooling of the base car, the new Shelby Super Snake will also be the first Super Snake to be made available with an automatic transmission. There will only be 300 total units built.
Each Super Snake begins as a Mustang GT with a 5.0 litre V8 and Ford Performance supercharger connected to a six speed manual or automatic transmission. Shelby also adds Ford Performance suspension components, a Borla exhaust, WELD Racing Super Snake 20″ wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres and 6-piston Wilwood brakes. Options include a more powerful supercharger, as well as a better performing intercooler and heat exchanger system, all designed to produce more than 750 bhp.
Aesthetically, the car has signature Super Snake striping and a carbon-fibre hood with a forced-air scoop plus a number of aerodynamic features including a larger rear spoiler.
Inside, the car has special badging, upgraded badged upholstery, floor mats and a 3-gauge dash pod.
“When Shelby American introduced the 605 horsepower Super Snake in 2007, the car became an instant sensation,” claims Shelby boss, Joe Conway. “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.”
