The sixth-generation Ford Mustang boasts quite a few firsts for the model line--items such as independent rear suspension and an available 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. If you’re a diehard enthusiast, however, you may just be looking for something more hardcore. If that’s the case, this ride might just be the one for you: the Shelby Super Snake.
The 2015 Super Snake takes its cue from the Ford Mustang GT, and massages the engine, the suspension, the brakes and other bits to give the car the utmost in driving performance. Starting out as a regular Mustang GT, the car has been transformed into a monster befitting its Super Snake moniker.
Shelby American tunes the already potent 5.0-liter supercharged V8 and adds stuff like a new intercooler, a more powerful supercharger, and a heat exchange system to give it a massive boost in power to the tune of more than 750hp. To handle the added grunt, the Super Snake is fitted with an uprated suspension system, Wilwood brakes, Weld Racing Super Snake 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Tires, and a Borla exhaust system.
The latest Shelby Super Snake signals its arrival with exterior touches that tell the world you’re driving a beast of a car. The hood is made of carbon fiber and features a massive air scoop. This special Mustang also has the signature Super Snake stripe, Super Snake logos, a host of carbon-fiber aerodynamic bits, and a humongous rear wing. The special treatment continues into the cabin with a three-gauge dash cluster, and logos on the seats and floor mats.
In true enthusiast fashion, you can even build your own Super Snake to suit your taste. Just be sure that however you spec it, you will be able to handle this car’s bite.
