Ever since the 2015 Ford Mustang began gracing our lot at Mountaineer Ford, we’ve been waiting for someone to come along and tune it into a veritable beast of a racing machine.
Thanks to Shelby American, our wait is now over. The custom performance vehicle manufacturer has just announced the new Shelby Super Snake, based on the 2015 Mustang GT, which produces over 750 horsepower, in part thanks to the Ford Performance supercharger it bolted onto the engine.
That’s more horsepower than the 605-hp Super Snake released in 2007, the new 627-hp Shelby GT, or even the 500+ hp Shelby GT350 you can order from the factory.
In addition to the Ford Performance supercharger, Shelby American upgraded the 2015 Mustang GT with Ford Performance suspension components, 20-inch wheels from Weld Racing with Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber, a Borla exhaust, six-piston Wilwood brakes, and more.
It also sports new visual components to set it apart from the regular pony car, such as a carbon-fiber hood and aero kit, a blacked-out grille, racing stripes, a short-throw shifter, a three-gauge instrument pod, and special interior and exterior badging.
Only 300 examples will be built this year, so you’ll have to act fast if you want to get your hands on one!
