For the Ford Mustang enthusiast that wants the best, there’s the Shelby Super Snake.

The all-new 2018-2019 Shelby Super Snake is priced from $113,445 including the base coupe Mustang, and come standard with the Ford Performance 710-horsepower supercharger finished in black. Ensuring the Super Snake is able to endure the 710 hp is a Shelby extreme cooling upgrade, which includes a new radiator, aluminum tank, and heat exchanger. Performance half shafts, one-piece drive shaft, and a Ford Performance exhaust round out the drivetrain upgrades.

The highly modified sports car gets overhauled on the outside with new front fascia, hood, grilles, rockers, front splitter, rear spoiler, rear tail panel, rear diffuser, and more. On all four corners are 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, available in either black or bright, paired with Shelby performance spec tires. And with all that power under the hood, braking performance needed to be overhauled with Shelby by Brembo brakes, which consists of six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers in the rear.

There are even upgrades inside the cabin, with new floor mats and door sill plates, gauge cluster with gauges, CSM badging, and a convertible light bar for those dropping the top on their Super Snake.

If all those standard features aren’t enough and your wallet is truly burning a hole in your pocket, Shelby offers a few optional upgrades for the 2018-2019 Super Snake. Those upgrades include an 800-hp supercharger (for a zero-to-60 time of 3.5 seconds), painted stripes, matching car cover, widebody package, and Shelby by Penske track suspension.

Each Shelby Super Snake comes with a three-year, 36,000-mile limited warranty. Only a limited number will be produced worldwide, and each will be branded with a unique CSM number that will be included in the Official Shelby Registry.

Watch out, Hellcat owners.
