Shelby Super Snake makes a comeback

Shelby Super Snake makes a comeback

- To have the original 1967 body shells 

- 550bhp big-block V8 with 4-speed manual gearbox

- Only 10 cars to be built at $250,000

The 1967 Ford Mustang fastback is one of the most iconic cars in the automotive history, known for its sleek lines and muscle car image. The GT500 had a 427cu-in (7.0-litre) big-block petrol engine developing 355bhp of power and was developed by Carroll Shelby to one up the GT350. 

But when Goodyear, the tyre manufacturer, asked Shelby to build a test bed to promote their new set of tyres, the GT500 Super Snake was born. The 427-big-block transformed itself into a racing engine that almost matched the Le Mans champion at that time, the Ford GT 40, in terms of performance. With almost 600bhp on tap, the Super Snake with a bespoke gearbox and rear suspension reportedly hit 170mph (274kmph) during a test run.

But because it was too expensive to build and sell, only one Super Snake has been ever built. And now, under the small-manufacturer-limited-run scheme introduced by the American government, Shelby is set out to build 10 more Super Snakes.

They will have the original 1967-spec body shells with an official Shelby VIN. The big-block V8 will develop 550bhp of power and will cost just $250,000 (Rs 1.6 crore approx.) for the yesteryear star in its full glory.
