Shelby GT500 Super Snake 2013: The Devil Wears Shelby. When Shelby has raised a version Super Snake Ford Mustang, in 2007, V8 5.4L supplied the pretty power of 600 c. Now the Shelby GT500 displays 662 horses!
Shelby American now offers a power level increased to 850 HP (eight hundred and fifty horses! repeat together) for its Super Snake. If you feel that the slow end too, you can always opt for a Shelby GT500 power already displayed 662 ch for 855 Nm of torque, thanks to its V8 5.8L compressor.
Beastly, brutal, demonic, venomous, flirty, these are qualifiers that stick well to this new Shelby GT500 SS. And yes it’ll send wood!
The car was presented a few weeks ago at Pebble Beach in the form of one of these concept cars that look so much like a production model and it finally arrived in the catalogue of Shelby. This high-powered Shelby 2013 is intended to marked the kick to celebrate the half-century of Shelby, unfortunately the creator of the company is no longer there to see this V8 engine with compressor mechanical demon.
For the model year 2013 and in order to satisfy all its customers, both ‘timid’ brutal, Shelby offers two versions of the GT500 Super Snake, namely a small strong version of 662 HP and especially an impressive 850 HP with compressor Whipple or Catherine Bell version. The mechanical base is the 5.8 L V8 engine which develops only (or already?) 662 ch, 855 Nm of torque on the small version. The big V8 is a new ECU but a new cooling system ‘Performance’ with a new radiator, also equips a new heat exchanger two aluminum cooling liquid tanks.
All is associated with an enhanced BVM6 available with two axle ratios (ratio of 3.31:1 series and race with 3, 73:1 optional), Shelby/Ford Racing suspensions journals (including at the level of the rear axle), a Shelby exhaust / Borla, big brakes Shelby / Wildwood with 6 piston calipers at the front and 4-piston rear. The new braking system is associated with scoops entry reinforced ducts that lead to the brakes and air. The GT500 Super Snake is placed on wheels aluminum in 20 inches in diameter and even 14 inches wide at the back! Customers have the choice between two body kits (one that is large only on the rear part of the car and the other who is wide… everywhere!). All is completed by a fiberglass Super Snake hood and, of course, the famous Cobra which serves as a logo in place of the blue oval.
Not disclosed performance, but when you see the perf’ of 2012 GT500 during runs, one understands that it sends drivers and heavy small arms will have to move their way on pain of is few beautiful frights at the wheel of this pony car venomous.
Come to the chapter that angry, from the invoice! But if this GT500 Super Snake is expensive in absolute terms, for us European it is almost given a car by 662 or 850 c. Thus at the price of the basic car ($59.200), it will have to add the price of the kits which gives the following rates:
- GT500 Super Snake 662 ch: $88,195.00
- GT500 Super Snake 850 ch: $99,195.00
Go to find a European supercar with such power for such price… you’re not near to find one! Finally, be aware that this Shelby GT500 Super Snake will be produced only in 500 copies. Too bad!
