an additional 30k? how in the Freak is that justified?

hell for the price these morons are willing to spend on a ford, i could have bought a camaro from every generation and supe them up to that kinda hp.


or, i could just buy a vette and throw a smaller pulley on the s/c, whoop the crap out of them, and still have money left over.

In 1967, Shelby American built one 427-powered GT500 “Super Snake” for Mel Burns Ford. Carroll Shelby drove it at the Goodyear test track for tire promotion film production. That car reached lap speeds of over 150 mph and a top speed of 170 mph. The new Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake will be equally potent.

soooo...they are saying they'll finally get a mustang to 170? thats fine... stock vettes can do what? 200?

“Mustang enthusiasts are demanding more from both Ford Racing and Shelby Autos” said Jamie Allison, Manager of Ford Racing Performance Group. “The GT500 Super Snake package, with its higher horsepower levels and balanced track-inspired tuning, satisfies those demands and then some … in a uniquely Ford – Shelby way.”

uniquely ford-shelby way.... meaning they are going to bend you over the counter and rail you till you cant walk with the extra 30k you have to spend on it.


All I have to say is this...
New packaging, same product...losers.
