Hissss! Shelby Summons an 840HP Mustang GT500
If there were ever a time to buy a Mustang in a pinch…this might be it. While the talk of the town remains focused on the all-new 2015 Mustang, Shelby American is giving its high-flying GT500 a heroic send-off. And in this case, ‘heroic’ means spouting a massive 850-horsepower. Meet the Signature Edition Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake, a ‘greatest hits’ of Shelby’s most popular upgrades for the outgoing GT500, and a package available to only 50 models and only until January 31st. So if you want one…you’d better act quickly. And you’d better already have a GT500 Mustang. For the Signature Edition, Shelby will take your standard 2007-2014 GT500 coupe or convertible, and give it a thorough performance shellacking. The firm bolts on a new 3.6-liter Kenne Bell supercharger, which helps boost output up from 662hp to a staggering 850hp. As a result, the Super Snakes pack an upgraded Shelby Performance radiator, heat exchanger, and aluminum cooling tanks. RELATED: Take a closer look at the 2014 Shelby GT500
Shelby also fiddles with the suspension, adds upgraded brakes in the rear, sets the new Signature Edition on forged Weld wheels, and graces the dash with Carroll Shelby’s signature (standard Super Snake interior shown above). Though not included, Shelby’s widebody package can be added at extra cost. But as a bonus, each of these sinister ophidians come available in any hue from the firm’s color palette (including stripes) and include a day of Shelby moderated track driving.
So what’s the total damage? Shelby prices this rare serpentine conversion at a cost of $44,995, which doesn’t include the donor GT500. Pricy? Yes. Probably ridiculously fast? We’d reckon so.
