First New Shelby
2014 GT500 Super Snake
Eric Kaminsky - February 04, 2014 01:00 PM
A Grabber Blue 2014 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, owned by the Carroll Hall Shelby Trust, was the first car to roll off the new assembly line of Shelby American in Las Vegas. The car will be delivered to the new Shelby Automotive Museum in Southern California.
Only 500 of the cars will be built, each one numbered and documented in the official Shelby Registry. The Super Snake is a post-title package; owners buy the Mustang, then deliver it the Shelby American for modification.
Shelby American enhances every facet of the car, from cosmetics to handling, braking and engine performance. The optional supercharger upgrade from Shelby American takes the Super Snake to a new level with 850 hp. The Shelby GT500 Super Snake package starts at $28,995 for the 662 hp version and $39,995 for the 850 hp model, not including the base car.
Established by Carroll Shelby, the Shelby Automotive Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created to educate the public about the auto industry, generally, and more specifically, the high performance cars created and built by Shelby American since 1962. From the first Cobra (CSX2000) to the current generation Shelby’s, the museum will reflect America’s spirit of competition by chronicling Carroll Shelby and the machines he inspired.
“Many consider the 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake to be the pinnacle of the outgoing solid axle Mustang line,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “Carroll was very proud of its breathtaking performance, which was developed after Ford upped the GT500’s capabilities in 2012. Since he was personally involved with both the pre-title GT500 and post-title Super Snake package, it’s fitting that the first car off our new factory line would be for Carroll’s Trust.”
