“… a brutally fast car….” – Hot Rod magazine editor, Ron Kinnan
Car and Driver gave a quick rundown on the Super Snake: “The latest volley in the war for aftermarket Mustang supremacy is the Super Snake package from Shelby American. Designed to enhance the looks and performance of the factory-baked 2011 Shelby GT500, the package includes suspension, braking, and exterior upgrades.”
“Shelby began with performance, gifting the GT500 a short-throw shifter and a Borla exhaust. A supercharger upgrade bumps power to 750 hp (versus the stock 550), and there's an optional kit good for 800 hp. Fortunately, the Super Snake also receives chassis upgrades in the form of a set of Ford Racing adjustable dampers and springs, stiffer anti-roll bars, and a new strut-tower brace. The car rides on 20-inch Alcoa wheels available in silver or anthracite gray. Baer brakes with six-piston calipers and cross-drilled rotors are also fitted.”
Offered here is a 2011 Shelby GT500 Super Snake in Sterling Gray Metallic over Charcoal Black. Built during August 2010 and delivered new at the Las Vegas Shelby Museum, extensively documented as number 2375 of 4,150 produced, and showing 8,879 miles on its odometer (fewer than 900 miles per-year on average), the car's condition is literally like-new in every respect. A full listing of the Shelby's equipment is provided on the copy of the factory window sticker included in the sale and also presented in the photo gallery.
The exterior metallic gray paint retains showroom condition and virtually perfect gloss across every Shelby-specific body treatments including the vented-intake aluminum hood, lower and upper functional side air scoops, and rear-deck spoiler. (The lower front spoiler is carbon-fiber of a similar color.) Blackout front grilles and rear-valance trim are perfectly complemented by the LeMans black racing stripes and the Shelby rocker-panel stripes with model designation: “Super Snake GT500.” There is a subtlety to the color scheme that refrains from screaming “Look at me!” All factory badging—the Cobra grille emblem, Super Snake front-fender emblems, and the S-H-E-L-B-Y letters on the rear deck above the Shelby Super Snake GT500 fuel filler cap—remains in place and in perfect condition. Chrome trim is kept to a minimum, basically including the hood locks, dual-exhaust tips, and the rear gas cap. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Black, 10-spoke, “Shelby Super Snake”-embossed, 20-inch forged wheels (with “Shelby Super Snake” centercaps) are mounted with Pirelli® performance tires. The open-spoke wheel design offers good views of the red Shelby-branded Wilwood® brake calipers and the cross-drilled and ventilated brake rotors.
The interior benefits from a host of performance-related upgrades as well as first-class appointments. Horizontal-design, tightly pleated charcoal-black leather seat upholstery harkens back to the design used on the first Shelby Mustangs. Headrests bear an embroidered Cobra Super Snake logo. Door panels incorporate the same upholster design but in a vertical layout. Charcoal-black cabin carpeting includes Carroll-Shelby-signature-embroidered protective carpet mats, and door-sill brushed-metal trim pieces bear the Super Snake identification. A multi-function leather-and-brushed-metal-trimmed steering wheel with Cobra center emblem frames the large, 160-mph speedometer and 6,250-redline tachometer with smaller engine-monitoring gauges in the middle. AutoMeter® fuel-pressure and oil-pressure gauges have been added to the a-pillar. The black dashboard is trimmed in textured metal from side to side. The center stack is home to the audio and climate-control systems with a plaque attesting to the car's authenticity. The console-mounted shift lever for the 6-speed manual transmission is topped with a racing-striped ivory knob displaying the shift pattern.
The view under the front hood will make any blue-oval fan's heart skip a beat: Ford-blue, SVT-branded valve covers, billet-aluminum radiator trim, low-restriction air-intake system, and the massive Kenne Bell® TS Series, liquid-cooled supercharger are among the performance components helping the 5.4-liter Ford V8 deliver a head-snapping 856 horsepower. All engine-bay surfaces are pristine and Shelby identification is extensive. When the chassis is viewed from below, the same pristine condition is evident. There is no rust. The lower engine and transmission surfaces, drive train components, full-length dual-exhaust system with crossover, and Shelby-specific suspension all compete for visual attention here.
All the car's factory build and identification tags remain mounted. A binder with extensive documentation on the car, the original owner's manual, and a custom car cover accompany the sale.
