The car uses a supercharged 427 cubic-inch V-8 (the hardware is a ProCharger F1-R centrifugal supercharger) to put out 790 horsepower, all while retaining classic Mustang looks.
That power gets to the ground through a Tremec manual transmission. The 9-inch rear end has a 3.50 gear ratio and Positraction. Steering is rack and pinion, and there is a tilt steering column.
Additional upgrades include wider wheels and tires, race-style bucket seats, Venom interior badging, and a 200 mph speedometer. There are also Shelby gauges, an aluminum steering wheel, Simpson 5-point seatbelts, A/C, a 1967 dashboard and door trim, a Shelby console and floormats, a Pioneer CD system, a 100-watt amplifier, a fuel cell, sequential taillights, 14-inch cross-drilled brake rotors, six-piston front and rear brake calipers, a MSD ignition, a dual exhaust, stainless steel mufflers, ceramic coated headers, coilover front and rear suspension with front and rear sway bars, and other goodies.
A DVD player and automatic transmission are available, along with right-hand drive and custom options.
Pricing begins at $199,000.
Next time you spot a Shelby GT500CR Venom at a car show, you can bet it's probably not a trailer queen.
