Used Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake For Sale
Have you dreamed of finding a rare Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake for sale? Many Ford fanatics would love to own one, but they are incredibly rare. As the ultimate Mustang, they are a tribute to a special 1967 Shelby Cobra GT500. Mr. Shelby was approached by Goodyear tires to build a Mustang worthy of their latest rubber.
What he delivered was unbelievable. His racing team had won LeMans in 1966 and 1967. The engine that powered the GT40 to first place was the 427 FE series big block V8. So what Goodyear received is probably the rares & most powerful Mustang of all time. The Super Snake Mustang was a GT500 with a scary level of power.
When the 2007 Shelby GT500 was introduced, Mr. Shelby decided to revive the name. Owners of 2007 and up Shelby GT500 Mustangs could send their cars to Shelby American to receive the Super Snake conversion. It included a new supercharger, exhaust, intake, and tuning for 725 horsepower. Buyers who needed more could opt for an 800 horsepower tune, but it requires race fuel.
Another great Shelby Super Snake for sale is the 2011 to 2012 examples. Instead of the iron block 5.4, a new aluminum block shaved over 100 lbs off the front end. They arrived with 660 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The optional Shelby supercharger boosted it to 750 horsepower. These cars received a steel driveshaft and Borla exhaust. Alcoa supplied the forged wheels in either anthracite or durabright finish. Forged brake calipers were a collaboration between Baer and Shelby, with 6-pistons up front. The 800 horsepower package was offered again, but only for use with 103 octane or higher race fuel.
In 2013, the GT500 Super Snake received its own 5.8 liter V8 that was not shared with any other Ford model. Rated at 662 horsepower, it was only a 2-year run. Once 2014 was over, so was the GT500. Codenamed Trinity, the 5.8 was a clean-sheet design that should have stayed in production, but the only way to find one outside of a GT500 is in the $30,000 Super Cobra Jet crate engine.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Super Snake Mustang, Shelby built the latest Mustang Super Snake for sale on the 5.0 liter GT. The GT500 designation is gone for now and rumored to return in 2020. The 2017 Shelby Super Snake uses the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 and a Shelby supercharger to make 670 horsepower. The optional upgrades include a 750 horsepower package that will allow you to run consistent 10 second quarter mile times.
