Shelby Super Snake
Over the last five decades, the Shelby Super Snake has crafted and maintained a reputation of performance that will leave you “snake-bitten.” The 2020 Super Snake certainly lives up to that reputation. Powered by either a 700 or 800 horsepower supercharged Ford 5.0L V8 engine, the Super Snake can launch from 0-60 in as little as 3.5 seconds – that’s a bite you’ll look forward to feeling behind the wheel.
Sporting new a new chassis, brakes, Shelby forged aluminum wheels and performance tires, you’ll experience improved handling and agility, especially when cornering. It’s also equipped with either a 10-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission, inspired by the Mustang GT. When it comes to braking, its 6-piston Brembo braking system decelerates to 0 in record-breaking time. Widebody and suspension options are also available to enhance your style and vehicle handling.
A limited number of the Super Snake model will be available worldwide, and each will be branded with a unique CSM number that will be included in the Official Shelby Registry.
The Super Snake boasts a striking new look, complete with Shelby engineered body components. Key features include a front fascia assembly, a front splitter, rear spoiler, rear tail panel and rear diffuser. It’s also decorated with exterior striping and Super Snake badging, complementing its deep tinted windows. The Super Snake sits on 20” Shelby rims, fitted with performance tires. And if you’re looking for added style, you can opt for the widebody package, equipped with wide flared fenders and widebody chassis.
The Super Snake Wide Body features new integrated body panels that add approximately 4” to the rear track and 2.5” to the front. Additionally, it features bigger brakes and wheels, with hardened wheel studs and stronger spindles and hubs. To maximize control and handling, you can opt for the available fully-adjustable coilover suspension system.
