*Early Super Snake Example
The Model: Tire smoke is a sensual smell. Some cars make more than others, like the GT500 Super Snake. With 650 HP launches and corner exits are difficult although a smoke show is easy. Yes, the Super Snake sits lower on a polished set of Alcoa rims and yes it has all the body modifications you would expect, but underneath it all you just can not help but to marvel at all that power. All that juice originates from a 5.4 liter V8 topped with a blower, huffing 16 PSI into the Shelby’s lungs. Engaging the throttle simultaneously delivers neck snapping performance, and a symphony of rpm’s from the ample Ford V-8 and the 4” tipped stainless steel exhaust. Inside the driver is immersed in a retro interior refined in 2010 and reminiscent of the ’64 model with a brushed aluminum accented 6 gauge instrument cluster and aluminum accented air register vents.
The Car: Delivered in red with a black over the top racing stripe, the stance of this Super Snake says it means business. It is adorned from every angle with Shelby badging indicating that this is no ordinary Mustang. Under the hood this car looks as it should registering just over 10,000 miles, spotless. The Kenne Bell supercharger dominates the space in the engine compartment, revealing what is hiding under the bulging track inspired Shelby aluminum hood with accessory hood pins. Styling carries through into the interior where the Super Snake insignia is monogrammed on the matching seat headrests. The leather bucket seats are in excellent condition as would be expected in a low mileage car. A leather wrapped 6-speed shifter in polished white is welcomed in a world of increasing paddle shift operated performance cars, and the center console is further emblazoned with the striking snake logo. Performance gauges such as the Auto Meter Products Boost indicator remind you that you are in for a lively ride. Like the muscle car era of years past, America is again delivering the ultimate pony cars to the market, get yours while you can.
