The 2007 Shelby GT500 came out with a whopping total of 500 HP, before the power output jumped up to 540 HP in the 2010 model year. Both sets of numbers are rather significant, but with the 2013 Shelby GT500 pushing 650 HP upon its arrival, customers who own a 2007-2012 GT500 may feel as though they are at a disadvantage. Well, worry no more.

Shelby Performance Parts has announced a new supercharger kit for the 5.4-liter V8 engine that can add an impressive 300 HP to the GT500. This means, the total output can be increased to an amazing 840 HP!

The new kit will replace the stock roots-type supercharger and will add a new Competition Heat Exchanger and Shelby GT500 Competition Intercooler Tank to improve cooling performance. The new Competition Heat Exchanger will keep the intake charge cool, while the Competition Intercooler Tank can be filled with ice or dry ice to further reduce intake temperatures.

The bad part to all of this is that there are no pricing details associated with the package as of yet. We’re thinking an upgrade package of this caliber will run customers somewhere in the $5-6K area.

From their whim to make it stronger, it simultaneously attracts consumers too for the very same reason.

I can’t believe that Shelby makes it possible to increase the current output of the former 2007 Shelby GT500.

It’s only good that their deal is beneficial to consumers too.

Is that one of their marketing strategies? The addition of the supercharger kit to Shelby takes the lead on upgrading engines that power up an additional 300HP.

Needless to say, this kit rocks the GT500.

The new supercharger kit is awesome. Imagine that it can control the intake temperatures of the Shelby.

It’s an excellent deal; 300 ponies for an affordable price is a rare opportunity to empower your car more.

This kit is ideal because it’s been long already since its first launching, and its initial capability to give off 540 hp.

It’s truly a money well spent. It’s not easy to append a drastic increase in ponies, so this is definitely worth the allotted price. You won’t always be needing a super powerful car, but it’s pleasant to know you have it handy.

The speculated price isn’t so bad for a 300HP increase. Your Shelby GT500 will already be beyond powerful than most supercars out there in that situation. If you owned it ever since its first launching, then you’d be indifferent towards its initial 540HP exertion.
