Limited to 10 units, the muscle car's continuation model includes a 550-hp, 7.0-liter V8.
Shelby American recovers the legendary 1967 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake. The company is planning to run only 10 fastback units and complete what it calls the "unfinished business" of muscle cars parents, Carroll Shelby and Don McCain. This is the company's second continuation model after the 1968 Shelby GT500KR that was launched earlier this year.
True to the original, the Super Snake includes a race-inspired 7.0-liter V8 and large block of Carroll Shelby Engine Co., available in aluminum and cast iron blocks. This car produces 30 HP more than the original to 550 HP. The engine is coupled to a four-speed manual transmission like the original. The new continuation car will be built from the original 1967 donor Mustangs and you will get a Shelby serial number for the official Shelby registration. The cars will be stripped of the metal before undergoing renovation.
Outside, the Shelby will have the iconic triple band design and the correct period components. Each of the 10 units will be made to order and will have a board plate signed by Carroll Shelby and Don McCain. In terms of prices, it starts at USD 249,995 (Rs 1.7 crore).
