Click above for gallery of the Super Snake

Despite the Shelby GT500KR's claim of supremacy over the dominion that is the open road, there is yet another Mustang that is even more extreme. Shelby's Super Snake package for the GT500 offers up to 725 horsepower and even more aggressive options for the suspension and braking systems. Available as a post-sale conversion for the GT500, the transformation can be performed at the Shelby facility in Las Vegas or at one of the official mod shops around the country. There have been a handful of owners who have already converted their GT500s, and one is already for sale on eBay. Something seems wrong with the seller's math, however, because a "Buy It Now" price of $200,000 is far more than the cost of a GT500 plus the $31,995 needed for the 725 horsepower conversion. We could understand the markup if these were in high demand, but pretty much any GT500 owner can send his car to get converted. So unless you really can't wait, keep your mouse away from the bidding button and just enjoy the gallery below. Thanks for the tip, Brad!

      Check out the pic of the headrests in the e-bay auction. They don't even come close to matching the color of the seats. WTF???

      Ok before I rant I will admit I have NEVER been a Mustang fan but do understand their early importance.

      Does anyone really have a grip on the 1001 super high performance versions of these cars made by Ford, sanctioned by For or simply just done by someone else.

      I think it's silly to see cars on Barrett Jackson and such going for the same price as a rare 1968 Ferrari when these cars just rolled off the aftermarket shot floor....

      but that one does look sweet...Now which version is this!?!?!?

      I don't know when Ford and their after-market tweaker brands are going to understand that fat looking sports cars aren't cool.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I expect Ford will realize just how uncool this is when it stops being a runaway sales success.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Relax people... Taking my comment way too seriously. lol

        "To each his own"

        I couldn't agree more.

        fat is relative, my friend. yea, it's fatter than a miata. would you call a lamborghini fat? they're pretty wide, i think.

        i think you are the misunderstood one. the mustang has a HUGE after-market *because* people think it's a cool car. sales records tend to agree with their mindset, not yours.

      As a fan and owner of mustangs, I must say that ther's no way in hell that I'd pay 200,000 dollars for a Mustang. Like the editorial said, the cars worth only half of that. It's silly to put 200 grand into this car when the there are Ferrari's, Lambo's, and AMG Benzes living in that price range.

      When are all of the mustang "editions" going to end??
      • 6 Years Ago
      Are these things still leaf-sprung?
        • 6 Years Ago
        That's the ZR-1 you're thinking of.

        Yesterday was ZR-1 day.

        Today is Mustang variant day.

        Tomorrow there will be a GT-R post or two.

        Hang on.

      It's nice, but there are so many variants of the Mustang out there, that now I just think the styling is boring and outdated. Good thing that the redesign is just around the corner. The Mustang should have a redesign every 3 years.

      another mustang.......yep.....another one.......
      • 6 Years Ago
      does anybody knows what 750 hp in this mustang does in the quarter mile?
      and why do people hate on this car, if people buy it its because they like it. and the reason there are so many mustang variations is because people want to buy them. i personally like this car looks and i am sure it would be a fun car to drive.
        • 6 Years Ago
        This Mustang does the same quarter time as every other 300+hp Mustang with the same rear tires.

        Put some slicks on this car and you will be looking at some decent low to mid 9 second runs.
      • 6 Years Ago
      With all these special editions of the mustang, I wonder how many normal GT's are left out there.

      It makes me want to buy a new unmolested mustang GT (S197 body) just to put away for the future. It might become a rarity. :-/

      In the end, it's just another POS Ford.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That line used to work twenty years ago, now it's just plain ignorant. I traded in my 97 Cobra for a C5 vette about 6 years, and while I love both cars I never had one day's problem with the mustang. I wish I could say that about the vette.

        170,000 worth of mods on a 30,000 dollar car. It's still a $30K at heart.
