Shelby Autos Releases Super Snake Package for 2010 GT500

Shelby Autos Releases Super Snake Package for 2010 GT500

Shelby Automobiles, Inc., the Las Vegas tuning shop that bears the name of Carroll Shelby himself, has just announced that it will offer a Super Snake kit for the new 2010 Ford Shelby GT500.

Customers will be able to choose from two supercharger kits with a Shelby/Ford Racing kit increasing output to 630hp or a Shelby/Kenne Bell blower kit pumping out 725hp. That 725hp kit will also include a new driveshaft capable of handling all that power, as well as twin 75mm throttle bodies to feed the supercharger. A Borla exhaust will also be included, as will a six-speed transmission with a 3.73 rear axle ratio.

Shelby Autos will offer two suspension setups, including a Shelby/Eibach package or a Ford Racing package with adjustable shocks, lowering springs, sway bars and a front strut tower brace.

A set of Shelby-design Alcoa 20-inch wheels comes on the Super Snake with a massive set of six-piston front brakes.

Outside the Super Snake can be distinguished by a unique fiberglass hood, Super Snake stripes, Shelby lettering on the rear decklid and Super Snake badges. The interior will also feature plenty of unique Shelby and Super Snake items.

“We take great pride in engineering fast, fun cars that people love to drive,” said Carroll Shelby. “Over the past 12 months, my team of hot rodders was hard at work on a Super Snake package for the next generation GT500. Every lesson we learned kicking the competition around on the track over the past two years has been poured into this new car to keep Shelby owners out front.”

“Since we introduced the Super Snake package for the GT500 in 2007, this Shelby has become the pinnacle of current generation muscle cars,” said Amy Boylan, president of Shelby Automobiles. “While the stock GT500 is a fine car, serious enthusiasts know that they can come to us to make their Shelby even better. For those who crave a harder edged Shelby, this is your car.”

The 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake is available through Shelby Automobiles at a cost of $29,495 for the 630hp package and $33,495 for the 725hp package. The Super Snake transformation will be offered in limited numbers to retain exclusivity.
