Shelby American has announced a new optional power upgrade package for the 2011 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake.

In collaboration with Ford Racing, Shelby American have increased power output to 800 hp (597 kW / 811 PS), 75 hp (56 kW / 76 PS) more than the 2010 Super Snake. To set the 2011 Super Snake apart from previous generations new anthracite wheels, white stripes and new side scoops were added. If 800 hp is too extreme, the Super Snake is also available in 660 hp (492 kW / 669 PS) and 750 hp (559 kW / 760 PS) tuning levels.

Beginning this month, production is slated for 1000 units of the 2011 Super Snake. Pricing for the 800 hp package hasn't been announced yet, but the 750 hp package is $30,245 including installation but without car.
