Amy Boylan, President of Shelby Automobiles, Inc., has released the first official details on her company's latest Mustang iteration, the Super Snake GT500. First, you'll need a Shelby GT 500, the base price of which is $40,930 according to Ford. Now, you're probably going to want to option that up, and we're betting no dealer will let you out the door without paying a significant mark up. On top of that, turning your GT500 into a Super Snake will cost at least an additional $28,000.

Sure, that price could buy you a second Mustang, but instead your Super Snake will be boasting 600 horsepower. You can order up to a 725-horsepower Super Snake as well, but the cost will be significantly more and you can kiss that factory warranty goodbye if you go all the way. In addition to the Shelby Supercharger that produces the extra ponies, you'll also get a cold air intake, Shelby/Baer 6-piston caliper brakes, a Shelby short throw shifter, an Eibach coil-over suspension, sway bars, and a Borla cat-back exhaust. Unfortunately, the Super Snake doesn't address the Mustang's weight problem, instead trying to reign it in with a beefier suspension, more power and better stoppers.

More info and the complete specs are after the jump.

No Mustang special edition would be complete without exterior adornments to let everyone know, so the Super Snake gets a new hood, carbon fiber front spliter, cf mirror covers and rocker panels, as well as a brake duct kit for the front and rear. Then there's the badging on the rear deck lid, front grille and front fenders, combined with the fat Super Snake striping bisecting the car lengthwise. Your Super Snake will also be rolling on 20-inch Shelby Alcoa wheels wearing Pirelli P-Zeros.

So, if the fates are on your side, a Super Snake will cost you $68,930 base. You should figure on that not happening, however, and be ready to raid an extra college fund if necessary.

      I've seen it, yes it is in fact a pole antenna...
      • 7 Years Ago
      There must be something about Mustangs and 911's that makes people think you need 15 versions of essentially the same car. Looks cool though, but not at $80k. You could get a better car than any Mustang for that kind of dough.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Just the go faster, stop faster, turn better, make lighter parts please.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Is it an understatement to say I want one?
      • 7 Years Ago
      Pricing has been officially announced at $27,995. Check out the details here. http://www.motorator.com/blog/ford-performance-parts/update-shelby-gt500-super-snake-pricing-announced

      please get rid of the pole antenna!
        • 7 Years Ago
        That's not a pole antenna, its the corner of the set this picture was taken in

          "That's not a pole antenna, its the corner of the set this picture was taken in"

          thanks for the clarity. i would hate to see these things destroy the shape of the car

      I really like mustang, actually considering of buying one, but i live in wet conditions, traction???

      How many more editions can they squeeze out of mustang???
        • 7 Years Ago
        I own a Mustang GT in SE Michigan. I find the traction control does it's job in most conditions. However, regardless, the car doesn't do too well in the snow.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I like the idea of being able to get the car with a warranty if even with just the 600hp model. If I'm going to spend $68k on a car, its nice to know its covered for at least 3 years.
      • 7 Years Ago
      if any of you idiots out there think that a z06 is anywhere near as bad as the supersnake...you need to get that vibrator out your butt. how bout this, supersnake and a new z06 are close in the price catagory. tell me this they pump out thousands of those pieces every year were as a limited amount of the supersnake. sell each of them in 25 years and see whose got the better collectors car.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Where can you drive it? That be the problem. Then there is the insurance. Then there are the cops of the world. You will not be able to keep your foot off the gas so why bother? Bet it will be stolen before it rusts out!
      • 7 Years Ago
      Anyone of you losers who would even CONSIDER this crap are complete morons. ZO6 ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        • 7 Years Ago
        Some people do not like Vette's(I happen to like them a lot). I can't believe people have not realized that everyone has their likes/dislikes about things and always have to bash people for it. But I'm more into the musclecar, not a sports car so I'd take a Mustang.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I'd rather be an old guy in a muscle car than an old guy in a sportscar; besides, the GT500 looks better than the Z06 IMHO...These are two reasons are why I bought a Shelby GT500.
