This merges all the legendary Ford names into one supercar. The 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake brings together Carroll Shelby, and Tasca Ford, in a supercharged 940+ hp package. This is one of those amazing cars that's more than just street legal, because you can take on all comers in the comfort of leather and A/C.
The Super Snake is a true professionally built muscle machine. Those with a deep passion for a blue oval, and even deeper pockets, could have a new GT500 transformed into one of the most powerful and highly sought-after Mustangs to ever hit the streets. Tasca Ford on behalf of Shelby American carried out the work. Those who know their Ford history know that Tasca is to Ford what Yenko and Grand Spaulding are to the other guys. So this one is actually double-blessed by the blue oval gods. The custom upgrades to the exterior made sure everyone knows this was the king above the King of the Road models. It has a special fiberglass Super Snake hood that looks like it can swallow its victims whole. There's a new front fascia with deeper ducts and a larger bodykit now made of carbon fiber. Side ducts cover the rear windows to pay homage to the original GT500. This airflow package is completed in the rear with a spoiler on top, and a functional splitter down low with the dual exhaust. But your favorite aggressive touch is probably the matte black striping package that provides the perfect contrast to the Torch Red. And because this car has barely any miles on the odometer, you know it's been babied all it life, and just about everything looks like-new. 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 an exclusive set of Alcoa 20-inch forged alloy wheels.
The upgrades found their way into the interior, too. The deeply sculpted red and black leather GT500 seats now wear "Super Snake" embroidery on the headrests. The same goes for the center console and the special floor mats, that include Carroll Shelby's signature. You pay a hefty premium for the GT500, so you got premium features such as air conditioning, power windows, power locks, power seats, cruise control, tilt wheel, dual airbags, and a Shaker 1000 AM/FM/XM/CD subwoofer stereo system that's loud enough to rival the monster motor. You know this is a special Super Snake, not only because of the individually numbered plaque on the dash, but also because of the Ford Performance shifter below it, and the new full gauge package above it.
As much as we all love the interior and exterior upgrades, it's what's under the hood that keeps us all salivating. The DOHC 5.4-liter V8 was upgraded even more and given the special Kenne Bell twin-screw supercharger. Receipts show roughly $110,000 invested. This one has been built in the grand tradition of the underrated muscle cars where Shelby advertised over 700 hp, and an independent dyno test tells us it easily cleared that hurdle with 944 hp at the motor. This is backed up by features such as a sweet sounding Borla exhaust system, JBA exhaust manifold, oversized coolers, and a short-throw Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual. So you know this Super Snake can reliably handle its power upgrade. Of course power is nothing without control. That's why it's running an upgraded Ford Racing suspension, including dynamic adjustable dampers, lowered springs, tuned stabilizer bars, and front strut tower brace. There's also Baer six-piston calipers with vented disc brakes at every corner, backed up by super sticky Pirelli P-Zero tires.
This is a mean beast engineered by the best to handle its power wisely. While the ultra low mileage tells you this has always been looked after like an instant classic, the full documentation, including the original bill of sale, warranty card, dealer invoice, and owner's manual help you keep this Shelby at investment grade.
