2010 Shelby GT500 Super Snake - Click above for a high-res image gallery

Coinciding with the 35th Annual Ford and Team Shelby Nationals in Tulsa, OK, Shelby Automobiles has released a barrage of new models including a 2010 version of the GT500 Super Snake (above). Most of the models are based on the previous generation Mustang, either the Mustang GT, Shelby GT or GT500 that current owners can bring to Shelby to be modified.

First up is the Shelby GT/SC, basically a Shelby GT with a supercharger, upgraded brakes and triple gauges on the dash. Next is the Shelby GT/SR (right), which is essentially a GT/SC model fitted with additional equipment for racing like BFGoodrich R compound tires, a one-piece aluminum driveshaft, front brake duct kit and an adjustable suspension.

If you want to Shelbify your regular Mustang GT, you can opt for the SuperCharged package that includes a supercharger, upgrades brakes, suspension and exhaust, 18-inch tires and more. You can also spec out your Mustang to SR spec, which adds similar upgrades to the GT/SR model.

Have a GT500 that needs more Shelby stuff on it? You can now go with the GT500SE (Special Edition) package that includes a carbon fiber front splitter, rocker panels and hood grille inserts, Ford Racing suspension, Borla exhaust, 20-inch wheels and tires, and more. And what if your GT500 is a 2010 model? Well, Shelby is now offering their Super Snake package for the latest GT500 that, among other things, offers a 725-horsepower supercharger upgrade.

Overwhelmed? So are we, but follow the jump to dig through all the upgrades and information for each vehicle.

        • 5 Years Ago
        Even though it's not heavier than German and Japanese competition... you sound really smart there buddy!!!

        Mustang GT - 3580lbs

        335i - 3557lbs
        S5 - 3818lbs

        G37 Coupe - 3717lbs
        Genesis 3.8 - 3480lbs
        • 5 Years Ago
        lol, still a moos-thang
        • 5 Years Ago
        Well it's big compared to what though? A lotus? A miata? A civic si? Of course it is it's a different kind of car.
        • 5 Years Ago
        it's still lighter than the 335i coupe and G37 coupe

        i guess those Germans and Japonese don't know what they are doing
        • 5 Years Ago
        You were dropped on your head as a baby weren't you?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Nice to see the Mustang bashers are at it again.
      • 5 Years Ago
      drool.... Super Snake is the ultimate Muscle Car
      • 5 Years Ago
      Words can't explain the AWESOMENESS of these beasts.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Six new models? Is this for real?

      Carroll Shelby will put his name on ANYTHING. He's really beating his name like dead horse. I got a better idea, how about Ford and Shelby stick with one or two really note-worthy products and call it a day, instead of totally watering down the Shelby name into nothing.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Still no limited slip diff? I'll take a Roush...
      • 5 Years Ago
      Absolutely gorgeous. I had the chance to get a ride in an 08' Super Snake last year, and to say that it was amazing, and had almost too much power is an understatement. It's the definition of insanity on wheels, and they look amazing, to boot.

      I wish I had the cash to buy one of those Kenne Bell packages for my 06' GT.
      • 5 Years Ago
      This is like Saleen.

      Too bad Steve is doing SMS and a variety of base cars. Otherwise, we would have 12 more duper stangs. At least Saleen races them in REAL races.
      • 5 Years Ago
      6 new mustang models in 1 post... some people are going to have a fit!!!
        • 5 Years Ago
        LMFAO ROFL - No kidding!

        This just in.... NEXT WEEK: 12 new SUPER DUPER MUSTANGS in one post!
        • 5 Years Ago
        725hp ftw
      • 5 Years Ago

      I seen more exciting school buses.
        • 5 Years Ago
        don't let parents of those school-kids notice your excitement Matt, we would miss your comments
        • 5 Years Ago
        I think Matt's a child molester.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Why are those others listed as 2010's when they aren't the new body style? Hmmm
      • 5 Years Ago
      I don't understand why people feel the Mustang is a Big and Heavy car. I've worked alot with Mustangs, they are actually fairly small.

      Go to the Ford website, the car isn't as long or as tall as a Fusion and a Fusion is a mid-size car.

      Now the Challenger, THAT is a big car.
        • 5 Years Ago
        All I know is that the Super Snakes lighter than my Magnum with a lot more horsepower. I may have to pick one up next year...
