2010 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Ford Mustang

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for this past week, you’re well aware of the onslaught of Ford Mustang packages recently announced by Shelby Automobiles.  Several packages to upgrade the first generation S197 (2005 through 2009) Mustangs and announcement of the 2010 Shelby GT500 Super Snake (pictured above) were detailed to the public just a few days ago.  All of the new Shelby packages can be applied to the Mustang GT, Shelby GT, and the Shelby GT500 pony cars currently in ownership circulation.  Ready for the laundry list of Shelby applications?  Brace yourselves; this might be just a bit much.  There is almost a half-dozen new Ford Mustang combinations based upon Mustangs people already own.  C’mon, Shelby…a twist on the old adage (you can get too much of a good thing) might come to fruition here and end up with a dreaded backfire.  Commercialism and marketing of something artistic and unique is a good thing…until it becomes overly common.

Press Release

TWO NEW 500+HP PACKAGES FROM SHELBY AUTOS FOR 2005-2009 MUSTANG GTS REV UP TEAM SHELBY NATIONALS – 2010 SUPER SNAKE DETAILS RELEASED

TULSA, OKLA. – June 25, 2009 – Shelby Automobiles, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., (CSBI.PK) unveiled today two new 500+ horsepower post-title packages for 2005-2009 Ford Mustang GTs during the 35th Mid America Ford and Team Shelby Nationals in Tulsa, Okla. The 500 HP “Shelby Supercharged” and 550 HP “SR” packages include serious performance upgrades and exterior styling cues. Both 50-state legal packages can only be installed at Shelby Automobiles in Las Vegas or an authorized Shelby Mod Shop beginning September 2009.

“In traditional Shelby style, both amazing packages will give Mustang GT owners a competitive edge on the track as well as styling that will set their Pony car apart from anything else on the street,” said Amy Boylan, president of Shelby Automobiles. “While both cars pack a wallop and are seriously sexy, we’re offering two levels of performance depending on an enthusiast’s intent. The Shelby Supercharged really enhances the capabilities of the Mustang GT while the SR makes the pony car an impressive track performer, too.”

The Shelby Supercharged package includes a Kenne Bell Supercharger that cranks out 500 HP. In addition, to this increase in horsepower, the package includes improvements to the Mustang GTs handling, styling and stopping power. Owners of 2005-2009 Mustang GTs can bring their cars to the Las Vegas factory or authorized Shelby Mod Shop to have the work completed and registered in the official factory registry.

The Shelby SR pushes the performance envelope to an entirely new level. With a 500 HP Kenne Bell/ Shelby supercharger (a 550 HP Shelby/Ford Racing unit is optional), Shelby/Baer 6 piston brakes, fully adjustable Eibach suspension, rear Watts Link and other race style equipment, the SR is perfect for track days as well as the street. Only 1,000 Shelby SRs per model year will be built.

“The performance on the SR is totally amazing,” added Gary Davis, vice president of production. “With 550 horses coupled to a short throw shifter, serious brakes and competition inspired suspension, this machine can really move. I especially like it with the optional six speed tranny.”

Options on both packages include: Shelby/Ford Racing Whipple supercharger, Shelby front and rear fascias, front and rear brake ducts, performance clutch, Eibach system, six speed manual transmission, chin spoiler, sequential taillights, quarter window covers, Kicker stereo upgrade, race ready roll cage, cooling system upgrade and two-tone interior.

“Our Shelby post-title packages will give any stock Mustang GT a serious shot of adrenalin,” added Boylan. “We’ve worked closely with partners like Ford Racing, Kenne Bell, Borla, Eibach and Kicker to make them true to the balanced performance Shelby heritage. It’s one bad car that’s very reasonable for the true enthusiast.”
