The new limited edition muscle car has been built to celebrate 50 years of the Shelby Super Snake
With more than 750 bhp, the new 2017 Shelby Super Snake is one of the most powerful Mustangs ever built. It is powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine producing 670 bhp. Optional superchargers then take the power to more than 750 bhp. The updated performance also means better handling. Ford Performance has given the Super Snake improved suspension and upgraded brakes. The tires are street legal Michelin.
A properly optioned car can accelerate from a standstill to a 100 kmph (62 mph) in just 3.5 seconds and the quarter mile can be achieved in 10.9 seconds. The American muscle car can also corner at 1.2g.
To stand out from a crowd of the regular Mustangs, it gets a few visual cues. These include a new hood, spoilers, splitters, grilles, fog lights, rear tail panel and rear diffuser assembly. You also get anniversary stripes and badges. The anniversary theme has been continued on the inside too.
This particular Mustang is being built by Shelby to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Super Snake. Only 500 units will be built and they will be available all over the world. It has been priced at US $69,995. This includes the price of the base Ford Mustang GT.
