If you didn’t already get a chance to catch it at the 2013 North American International Auto Show, then here is an opportunity to get as much of the 850 horsepower 2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake “Wide Body” as you can handle. This venomous beast starts with the already crazy-powerful stock 2013 GT500 (662hp, anyone?) and ups the ante to a 50-state-legal 850hp…on 91-octane fuel. Add to it the new “Wide Body” option to help its performance as well as appearance, and you’re beholding what’s likely the best Shelby Mustang, to date.
The 13″ rear and 10″ front wheels help give the 2013 Shelby GT500 “Wide Body” its excessively aggressive raked look, as a true throwback to muscle cars of the past. “The optional wide body package isn’t just a cosmetic change, it now gives the Super Snake much more traction and makes it easy to exploit the Shelby’s potential right past the competition.” said Gary Davis, vice president of production at Shelby American.
What’s more, aside from insane amounts of Mustang muscle, is prospective buyers can select from a few choice hues: Satin Black, Gloss White, Silver, Blue and Red stripes. Additionally, and for the first time, wheel options include a rear-only or front and rear “wide body” packages.
