“We designed the Shelby Super Snake to be the pinnacle of our performance cars based on Ford’s world-class Mustang sports car,” stated Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American, emphasizing the brand’s commitment to pushing the envelope of performance. “It follows Carroll Shelby’s vision that each generation of car improves the breed.”

Powered by a potent 5.0-liter COYOTE V8 engine, the Super Snake offers two versions: a robust 480-horsepower variant and an awe-inspiring 830+ horsepower supercharged edition, elevating it to the ranks of elite supercars. Gary Patterson, President of Shelby American, reflected on the Super Snake’s rich heritage, tracing its lineage back to the race-bred Mark IV Ford GT that conquered Le Mans in 1966.

“The roots of the Shelby Super Snake began with the race-bred Mark IV Ford GT… Over the years, the Shelby Super Snake has evolved but continued to keep its competition-edged personality,” noted Patterson, highlighting the car’s enduring legacy of performance excellence. “The 2024 Shelby Super Snake is pure American performance.”

This latest iteration marks Shelby American’s debut on the new S650 Ford Mustang platform, embodying a harmonious blend of form and function. Vince La Violette, Shelby American’s Vice President of Operations and Senior Designer, underscored the technical sophistication of the 2024 Super Snake, boasting enhancements designed to maximize performance and handling.

“The 2024 model roars with over 830+ horsepower… it is available with a manual transmission or automatic, as well as either a fastback or convertible,” explained La Violette, highlighting the Super Snake’s versatility and formidable power. “The featherweight carbon fiber tail wing keeps the retuned suspension firmly planted.”

With production limited to just 250 units in the US, the 2024 Super Snake epitomizes exclusivity, each vehicle meticulously documented in the official Shelby Registry. “It is such a contrast in styling from European marques yet has the performance capabilities to compete with them at half their price,” remarked Patterson, underscoring the Super Snake’s exceptional value proposition.
