And it is one mean looking machine with a lot of updates to place the current range-topping Mustang GT into the shadows.
Shelby American has officially pulled the wraps off the 2015 Super Snake. The model in question has been based on the 2015 Ford Mustang GT And it is coming with a carbon fiber body which is adding the carbon fiber hood, front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, rear fascia and mirror caps, all made from the same lightweight material. The muscle car has also received the rear spoiler, racing stripes and the black anodized grille, along with the 20-inch WELD Racing wheels, wrapped around in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
The cabin of the updated muscle car signed by Shelby has also received a sporty styling and here we can find the Shelby-branded sill plates, the floor mats, the embroidered headrests, the 3-gauge dash pod and the short-throw shifter, amongst others. The Super Snake is also getting the Ford Performance Suspension, the Ford Performance 3.73 gears, the Handling Package, the Wilwood front brakes and the Borla exhaust system. Under its hood, the 5.0l V8 engine has received the Ford Performance supercharger, which is allowing the unit to generate 650 HP (484 kW) and this can be connected to either the 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. Buyers can also order the Kenne Belle or Whipple supercharger which will bring the total output to 750 HP (559 kW). Only 300 units of the 2015 Shelby Super Snake will be put together and each one starts at 49,995 USD. The price doesn’t include the standard Mustang GT.
