Shelby have confirmed the specification of the 2021 Shelby Super Snake and exclusive Shelby Speedster, based on a 2021 Ford Mustang, which can now be ordered through Shelby dealerships worldwide and in South Africa.

 

The Super Snake is a modern iteration of the version driven in the movie Gone in 60 seconds and remains popular amongst muscle car enthusiasts looking for added racetrack capability and performance from their Mustang. For 2021 the Super Snake features a set of upgrades that are sure to sharpen the presence of the Mustang.

 

Under the bonnet

Ford’s latest generation 5.0-litre V8 forms the basis for performance but has been upgraded with the addition of a highly polished Whipple supercharger. The fitment of this performance hardware as well as a number of additional performance parts and expert tuning sees the Shelby Super Snake produce 615kW, delivered via the rear wheels. This allows for a 0-100km/h sprint in just 3.5 seconds.

 

Backing up the performance upgrades is an enhanced cooling system that consists of a new radiator, aluminium tank and heat exchanger. Ensuring that the engine note is on point is a full Borla exhaust system.

 

Helping transfer power to the road, the Shelby Track Handling Package includes 20-inch one-piece forged aluminium wheels wrapped in high-performance tyres. A Shelby braking system, with improved cooling, ensures reliable stopping, time after time.

 

The show to match the go

The exterior of the Super Snake is characterised by aluminium wide body front fenders and a steel bonnet from Shelby’s Signature Edition. The wide body allows for the fitment of the wide 305-inch tyres. Aerodynamic gains include a more aggressive front bumper and splitter with added veins.

 

Rounding off the extra sporty look is a rear spoiler, tail panel, diffuser and Shelby louvered quarter windows. Optional Super Snake badging and striping adds a finishing touch

 

Shelby Super Snake Speedster

The most striking addition to the Super Snake range is the new Speedster. The Speedster Edition sees a Mustang Convertible transformed into a two-seat roadster with the addition of a hard top tonneau system, accompanied by unique striping and badging. With only 25 units available worldwide the Speedster is one very exclusive muscle car.

 

Inside story

The interiors of the Super Snake models receive upgrades in the form of Shelby floor mats and doorsills. The dashboard features a new cluster and gauges as well as Carroll Shelby numbering straight from the Official Shelby Registry. Enthusiasts looking for a true racecar feeling can have the rear seat removed and a seatbelt harness bar installed.
