Shelby GT500 Super Snake
If you know Shelbys, then you already know how special this one is. You're looking at a 2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake that's 1 of 50 black anniversary cars (and believed to be the only one of it configuration!) So this is a low-mileage and ultra-low production 800 hp juggernaut from one of the most celebrated names in American performance.
The Super Snake is a true professionally built muscle machine. Shelby American transformed the GT500 into one of the most powerful and highly sought-after Mustangs to ever hit the streets. It has a special fiberglass Super Snake hood that looks like it can swallow its victims whole. There's a new front fascia with deep ducts and a large carbon fiber front splitter. The blocked-out rear quarter windows pay homage to the best snake-bitten Shelby before it. This airflow package is completed in the rear with a large spoiler on top, and a functional splitter down low with the dual exhaust. If you're a lover of brightwork, then you still get it on this one, but it remains functional on features like the hood pins and those massive exhaust tips. What makes this example extra impressive is it's a very limited edition car celebrating Shelby American's half-century of dominance. 100 anniversary cars were built; only 50 were in black with gold striping; and this is the only one believed to have the optional Wide Body kit that allows for even more rubber to meet the road. So when you can mention Shelby and this kind of rarity in the same breath, you know this will always be pony car royalty. That's why this supercar has less than 1,700 miles on the odometer and it retains a showroom level of shine.
The moment you open the door, the first thing you'll notice are the seats. They are race-ready units that have an outstanding look with the gold stitching and special embroidery that coordinate with the exterior package. And with such low mileage, this Katzkin leather upgrade looks and feels supple. And while this is a true track day monster, it's also a premium machine. That's why you get all the best modern features, including power windows, power locks, power seats, keyless entry, cruise control, and automatic climate control. The stereo is the AM/FM/XM/CD Shaker unit with a touchscreen interface. It pumps out huge power, and it's still modern enough to have satellite navigation and interface with your phone. Speaking of modern conveniences, you also get the safety of dual front airbags and side airbags.
This generation of the Super Snake is especially sought after for what's under the hood. You'll love showing off this amazingly fresh engine bay that's stuffed with Shelby Mustang power. The fuel-injected 5.4-liter V8 is significantly lighter and more advanced than the previous generation. Not only is this motor believed original, but it came direct from Shelby American with the special optional Kenne Bell supercharger. That means this is the top dog with a ferocious 800 horsepower. This symphony of power is played through a sweet-sounding Borla cat-back exhaust system. You get full control of this monster motor and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. In fact, speaking of control, the suspension was upgraded to include Watts-link rear, Eibach adjustable coilovers, added bracing, and Wilwood disc brakes that are slotted and vented at every corner. And it's all backed up by super sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires (and don't forget the rare wide body means wider tires for superior grip!)
There's so much to go over on this Shelby that you should call for all the details. And when it comes to a car that's truly this unique, you already know it might be a case of call today, or it will be gone forever tomorrow!
