2008 FORD MUSTANG SHELBY GT500 Super Snake for sale

Price: $195,000
Converted to right-hand drive by Mustang Motorsport in Melbourne, This pumped-up, blinged-out and mega-powered muscle machine has had the magic wand treatment from legendary muscle car magician Carroll Shelby, not unlike what ol Shel did back in the 1960s with the original tyre-shredding Super Snake Mustang and Cobra.

Like the original Mustang which introduced the personal car concept to millions of American buyers, it seems the latest Stang can be ordered to suit almost any taste. As well as countless Ford variations on the theme (Bullitt or Hertz Rent-a-car, anyone?) there are numerous aftermarket hot-shops like Saleen and Roush catering for those who want something a bit different.

But none have gone so far in the modification stakes as Shelby and his Super Snake Mustang. The latest collaboration between Ford and Shelby that goes back to the original Shelby GT350 street racers of the mid-60s, this steroid-pumped special has more lumps, vents and indentations than a race car; more shiny chrome and bright leather, than an Auto Salon show-stopper; and more neck-snapping appeal than Miss Australia experiencing an on-stage wardrobe malfunction.

And the best thing is, for collectors at least, that the 85-year-old Shelby has his fingerprints all over the thing, with numerous ID plates and special insignias, including the important serial number and documentation making the car eligible for Shelby club registers.

Like other Super Snakes, Craig Deans car started life as a standard supercharged GT500, and was built at Shelby Automobiles in Las Vegas. The 16th Super Snake since late-2007, it was a special VIP promotional car supplied by Ford before arriving Down Under.

Priced at an additional US$28,000* over the dealer sticker of $41,930* for the GT500, Dean also made sure just about every option from the Shelby and Ford Racing Parts catalog available was fitted to the car, from Shaker 1000 stereo to polished Kenne Bell supercharger.

To give it its low, menacing appearance, the Super Snake features a vented fiberglass bonnet, carbon fibre front splitter and side skirts, side scoops, front and rear cooling ducts and black-out stripes and badging.

Filling the huge guards are special, Alcoa forged alloy wheels; 21 x 10-inch with 275/35ZR rubber in the rear, and 21 x 9 with 255/35ZR tyres up front.

The Super Snake also benefits from bigger brakes incorporating Baer six-piston front callipers, aluminium driveshaft and 3:73 rear axle, JBA exhaust system, and six-speed manual transmission with Ford Racing short-throw shifter.
