I don't think the supersnake is regular production...I could be wrong...

Anyways, we've got pictures of what we assume to be the "HP Edition" testing along side of a Mustang GT500 equipped with the SVT performance package. Chevy always aims to surpass their closest competitors...so that's where my head's at...

its says here it is.

Built for Shelby by Unique Performance, the G.T.500E Super Snake is the most powerful regular production Shelby (based on a Ford Mustang) ever offered to the public. Each car features a 525 HP aluminum Shelby 427 engine, Unique Performance rear suspension, Tremec transmission and many modern performance upgrades, as well as special badges and striping. With an optional supercharger, this Shelby churns out an earth shaking 725 horsepower.

Ah. I guess I was half-right. Super Snake is a Shelby. GT500 (regular) is a Ford using the Shelby name. Chevy doesn't build cars to compete with aftermarket tuner cars. That's what SLP/Lingenfelter/Hennessey/Tom Henry Racing/etc is for.

We think Chevy is building the "HP Camaro" to compete against the 'regular' Mustang GT500, which is a Ford. The Super Snake is not a Ford, and so it doesn't make sense as a target.

Thats pretty much hitting the nail on the head. Regular off the assembly line production Ford GT500's are sent to Shelby American, Carol Shelby's company, for the upgrade to Super Snake, much like the way Chevy used SLP.

But the GT500 is still a Shelby much like all the camaros out there that are massaged by dealers just on a larger scale. The GT500 is called a Shelby done by Shelby America not as a regular production car off of the Ford assembly line like the Camaro is.

Correct me if I am wrong but that would mean the GT 500 isn't a production car ... At least not in the same regard as the Camaro

The GT500 was developed in a partnership with Shelby but is produced by Ford, making it a Ford production car.

+1. It's a production trim level of the Mustang, assembled in Ford's plant, sold through Ford dealers, etc. Ford pays Shelby to use their name on it. Why? I dunno...I'm not a Mustang afficionado.

But I do know is IS a Ford production car.

I, too, seriously doubt GM is making a Super Snake competitor. GT500? Definately.

Now, the Supersnake...as said earlier in the thread -- THAT'S a Shelby. An aftermarket tuner car based on the factory GT500.

The ZR1 is a true factory car, and a whole 'nother beast. So, no - they don't directly compete.

Umm... That car doesn't hold a candle to ZR1; and I don't think it'll touch Z06 in terms of handling either.

Do you have a pic of the ZR1 that you are looking to trade up to? I really like looking at the pics of the cars you post. I am really fond of your tribute car being that I am an active duty soldier and have deployed on every OIF rotation since the invasion. I really appreciate what you have done for us. Thank you
