Shelby American has recently launched a new package for the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 coupe which has been priced at $28,995.

According to the North American aftermarket specialists at Shelby American, the package added to the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Coupe starts at 28,995 USD for the 662 horsepower version, while for the 850 horsepower, the price has been set at 39,995 USD. Only 500 units of the so-called Shelby GT500 Super Snake will be available so if you want to get your hands on one you’d better hurry up.

“When Ford launched the 2013 Shelby GT500, we were bombarded with requests for Shelby American to offer a Super Snake package for the car,” said John Luft, president of the performance company established by the late Carroll Shelby. “Our team worked closely with Ford Racing and other key partners to develop our new fire-breathing snake.”

Shelby says that the entry-level 2013 GT500 Super Snake is getting the 5.8 liter supercharged V8 engine, producing 662 HP and 855 Nm of torque, but when the model gets a Kenne Bell or a Whipple supercharger, almost 200 HP are added to a total of 850 Nm. The 2013 GT 500 Super Snake will make its public debut in Las Vegas, at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction.
