Shelby Strikes With the 2017 F-150 Super Snake

Shelby's widebody Mustang is a concept, but its Super Snake F-150 is production bound

Shelby American Unveils F-150 Super Snake Street Truck

Shelby went to town on Ford's 5.0-liter V-8, adding a supercharger, an open-air performance intake, a carbon-fiber intake tube, a heat exchanger and new fuel injectors. That extra width let the company cram wider wheels and tires-12.5 inches wide in back, 11 inches wide in front-beneath those shapely arches, helping put more Michelin surface area onto the road.

Based on the world-class Ford F-150, Shelby American collaborated with partners like Ford Performance and Borla to transform it into a Super Snake. This provides more grip for later braking and earlier acceleration out of corners. It has announced a hopped up version of the Ford F-150 Truck for those with enough scratch to afford one. But the Super Snake opts for a different focus than those rigs: street performance. It will deliver more communication to the driver and better absorb track imperfections.

The new vehicle marks the first time Shelby American has offered a widebody kit for the current Ford Mustang. The package also includes new hood, rockers, spoilers, grill, rear bumper, tonneau cover, and special stripes and badges. "The current Shelby Super Snake emphasizes handling much more than the last model, which required a new approach with this concept".

The interior of the truck is also revised with new seats, dash, and floor trim. It rides on BDS suspension with Fox shocks and 18-inch Shelby engraved alloy wheels and BFGoodrich K02 tires. The Shelby GT350 and GT350R come close to matching the performance of German legends like the BMW M3 and Porsche 911, and the upcoming GT500 will nearly certainly push the 'Stang into the outer limits of genuine supercar territory. Prices are $88,595 for the 395-hp naturally aspirated version or $101,595 for all 750 ponies.

Later, Ms Sanders said, "We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity". A spokesman for Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said the details on the timing are still being worked out.

"This is simply an unbelievable truck to drive", said LaViolette. "From Detroit to Dubai and Dusseldorf, this is the ultimate expression of a high performance truck available through a dealer".

The Super Snake name is synonymous for being applied to some of the craziest Ford Mustangs ever created by Shelby and for the most part, these cars have been designed as straight-line monsters that can out-pace European exotics. Each vehicle is assigned a genuine Shelby serial number that is documented in the official Shelby Registry.

If you are in the Southern California area this weekend, the concept vehicle will be shown at the 5th Annual Carroll Shelby Tribute and auto Show on Saturday, May 20 along with the Super Snake truck and some beauties you can see in the photo gallery above.
