Shelby News

Sunnday 20th April 2014


If you thought that 700bhp tuned Mustang we showed you last week was a bit, well... un-muscular, here's the new Super Snake from longtime Ford tuners Shelby.

Based on the Mustang GT500, the Super Snake puts out 725bhp from a supercharged version of Ford's 5.4-litre V8, and it looks properly mean: check out those rear quarter window scoops - no idea where they're drawing air into, but don't let that sort of thing worry you - the huge bonnet scoop and the carbon fibre splitter.

Its a collaboration thats never happened before, a collaboration that will result in a one-of-a-kind 2011 Mustang that simply will be without equal. For the first time ever, Carroll Shelby and Jack Roush were on site to meet with Ford Motor Company to design, engineer and produce the SR-71, a vehicle inspired by the SR-71 “Blackbird, the long-range reconnaissance USAF aircraft built by Lockheed Martin.
