Shelby GT500 Super Snake Signature Edition: Going Out Swinging
The next-generation Mustang is now the current-generation, meaning that the fifth-gen is now the previous gen; basically, the 2015 Mustang is now the PS4 and the 2007-2014 models are the PS3. But don’t get it twisted: those old ponies still have a fair amount of juice left in them, particularly if you so happen to be one of the lucky 50 to turn your last-gen Mustang into an ultra-rare, 850-horsepower Shelby GT500 Super Snake Signature Edition.
“The Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake has become one of the most exciting and desired cars in the world since we introduced it in 2007,” said Joe Conway, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American. “With production of the current generation GT500 ending, we wanted to commemorate the sunset of an important era. This Shelby truly changed the automotive landscape and inspired the performance competition that continues today. It’s a car worthy of being honored with a very special limited edition Shelby. The package can only be ordered available for a limited time, so ownership puts a person in a very elite club.”
