Internet, say hello to the Shelby Super Snake Speedster. Underneath, it’s basically a ‘standard’ Super Snake. That means the 5.0-liter V8 has been fettled and fitted with a Whipple supercharger and a Borla exhaust system to produce a total of 814hp.
There’s also Penske track suspension, fairly massive Brembo brakes, and 20-inch forged aluminum wheels. Oh, and that’s not forgetting the widebody kit and the choice of an automatic or manual gearbox—the latter being fitted with a short-throw mod.
Just 98 standard Super Snakes will be built this year to celebrate the 98th anniversary of Carroll Shelby’s birth, but then there’ll also be 98 Super Snake Speedsters, too.
The Speedster is essentially a two-seat roadster with a hardtop tonneau, ‘unique striping,’ and many special-edition badges. Looks mean, doesn’t it? Just check out that slicey front splitter.
The 0-60mph (97kph) sprint is dispatched in 3.5sec, according to Shelby, and prices will start at $138,780 (P6.75 million) for the Speedster. Standard Super Snakes with a manual ’box begin at $133,785 (P6.51 million), so if you like your 800hp+ Mustangs with a bit of added breeze, the Speedster really is quite the bargain. Maybe...
