If the 650 HP coming out of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 isn’t enough for those speed-lovers out there, Shelby American is ready to shut them up with their famous Super Snake package, which will transform the stout muscle car into a more powerful and agile machine.

The new Super Snake package will upgrade the GT500’s power level to an impressive 662 HP in the base version, or an incredible 850 HP if the additional supercharger is chosen. The model can be ordered in any exterior color combined with Satin Black or Gloss White stripes and new wheels in Satin Black or Bright Silver Metallic. As a first for Shelby vehicles, the new Super Snake will be offered with a choice of rear-only or front and rear "wide body" packages with an optional 13 inch rear wheel and tire package - a tribute to the legendary Carroll Shelby.

The new GT500 Super Snake package is priced at $28,995 for the 662 HP version and $39,995 for the 850 HP model, not including the base car. It will be limited to only 500 units, both coupe and convertible. The official debut will be made at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in Las Vegas on September 27th–29th.

I don’t really like this Super Snake especially its front fascia. It’s so thick that the driver might not see the front of the road.

As I can see, the front fascia is the only thing good about it. Oh and also the packages it have. I am curious about it’s interior.

Even though there are no major changes made to Mustang, it is somehow the most expensive muscle car in the market.
