Showcased here on video for the very first time, the new Super Snake utilizes a 5.0-liter V8 engine completed by a massive supercharger to lift grunt to 710 hp. If customers want even more go, an 800 hp tune is available and can rocket the pony car to 96 km/h (60 mph) in a brisk 3.5 seconds. Beyond the addition of a blower, key engine modifications include a bespoke radiator, heat exchanger and performance half shafts.
Any car with so much power requires an equal amount of braking force. As such, Shelby has fitted a set of Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers at the front and four-piston units at the rear.
Visually, the 2018 Super Snake can be distinguished from typical Mustang models with a revised front fascia that incorporates a custom grille, splitter, air intakes, and hood. Additionally, the car includes flared wheel arches that engulf the set of massive 20-inch forged wheels available in a black or bright metallic finish.
If customers so choose, the Mustang Super Snake can be equipped with track suspension or without the wide bodykit. Prices start at $113,445 with the Mustang donor car included.
