They’ve somehow managed to get pricing from the folks at Shelby on the Super Snake GT500 package that is capable of making your standard every-day 500 HP GT500 into a pony-car with (reportedly) over 725 HP, making it the highest horsepower street-legal warranty-carrying Mustang ever.
The folks at Shelby will take your $45,000 GT500 and for just $27,995, they’ll boost the engine performance via a Shelby supercharger upgrade, a Borla cat-back exhaust system and a cold air intake and then they’ll work on the handling a bit by dropping in a Shelby/Eibach coil over suspension to lower the ‘stang a little over an inch-and-a-half and then by adding Shelby/Eibach sway bars to reduce the body roll.
In addition to some Pirelli P-Zero Nero 255/35ZR20 front and 275/35ZR20 rear tires, Shelby will pretty up the exterior by slapping on some carbon fiber, a KR-like Super Snake hood and some super striping and badging, then call it a day. We’re even told they’ll throw in some satin door lock knobs and some Shelby floor mats at no extra charge, but we’re pretty sure they’ll charge you if you ask for a Cobra-Kai karate gi to wear out on the road while driving your “Snake.”
