2008 Shelby Mustang GT500 Super Snake

THE 2008 SHELBY MUSTANG GT500 SUPER SNAKE PACKAGE
The Super Snake was a $31,995 package on top of the price of a regular (if there's such a thing as a "regular") 2008 Shelby Mustang GT500. Only 1,000 were to be built in any given year, by Shelby Automobiles for Ford under contract. They were built for speed, or more specifically, to run 10-second quarter-miles. To do that, they pumped the output up to 725 horsepower. The package also included huge brakes with 6-piston calipers, a 3-1/2-diameter aluminum driveshaft, and model-specific Shelby 20-inch Alcoa wheels with Pirelli tires.

To pull 725-horsepower, Shelby dropped a Kenne Bell supercharger on top of an otherwise stock 5.4L DOHC GT500 long block, and they polished it to a high shine. They also added a Borla cat-back exhaust system and free-flowing air cleaner setup, all running through 3.73:1 rear gears. Interestingly, Shelby also offered a lower-output, 605-horsepower version if you wanted a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.
