The Shelby Super Snake Is Back

#aftermarket – Shelby American continues to pack on the power for the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and this time it’s bringing back the Super Snake badge. After launching the 627-hp, 2015 Shelby GT earlier this year, the tuner has just revealed the 2015 Shelby Super Snake, available with performance goodies that bumps power to SRT Hellcat territory and then some at 750+ hp.

The Shelby Super Snake is offered with two stages of tune. Starting with a 2015 Mustang GT (base MSRP of $33,200 U.S.), the first option costs $49,999 and takes power up to 650+ hp. Here the tuner uses a Ford Performance supercharger and exhaust system, 3:73 gearing, Ford Performance half shafts, Ford Performance short throw shifter and handling package, and Shelby Performance cooling package.

The wheel package includes WELD Racing 20-inch, Super Snake wheels that are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sports, while the front brakes are upgraded to a 6-piston Wilwood set up.

Additionally, the tuner adds a number of carbon fiber body parts including the front splitter, hood, mirror cap covers, and rear diffuser. Visual tweaks include Super Snake decals and striping and Super Snake badges found through the vehicle. Also included on the list of interior upgrades is a carbon fiber gauge pod and Shelby sill plates.

Opting for the 750+ hp package will set you back $54,999 U.S. Here, Shelby sources the beefier supercharger from Whipple of Kenne Bell. Other upgrades include a more substantial cooling package (engine, differential, and transmission) and Shelby Wilwood 4-piston rear brakes. Other options include additional carbon fiber body work, one piece drive shaft, a Katzkin interior package, race seats, and a roll cage with five-point seatbelt harnesses. The tuner says it’s limiting production to just 300 units for model year 2015.
