The first Super Snake model was built in 1967 and featured a 427-V8 motor, which enabled it to reach a top speed of 170mph with Carroll Shelby behind the wheel. The performance shop is now bringing that concept forward 40 years for customers who own the latest Ford Shelby GT500.
The new pack will include a Ford Racing supercharger upgrade kit, good for over 600hp and 590ft-lb of torque. Completing the power upgrade is a high-flow exhaust system with drive sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed short-throw manual shifter. Developers then will add a handling pack with unique performance suspension tuning including dynamic adjustable dampers, lowering springs, tuned stabilizer bars, and a front strut tower brace.
Other additions include a set of Baer 6 piston brakes with Shelby cast calipers and larger rotors sitting inside unique 20in wheels. There’s also a carbon composite hood with ‘Shelby’ lettering across the front edge of hood and rear decklid and in the interior.
