The wait for the Mustang’s GT-based Super Snake concept to be released is finally over. Shelby had recently collaborated with Ford Performance and Borla to come up with something that will definitely interest truck enthusiasts. The F-150 gets a Super Snake treatment that makes it even more hardcore than the already intimidating Raptor. And what makes it even more special is that the company is only building 150 examples.
Let’s begin with performance. The F-150 Super Snake will be equipped with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that can carry out a whopping 750 horsepower (600 kilowatts). This engine will be paired with a two-wheel or a four-wheel drive configuration depending on the customer’s preference.
In terms of design, the Super Snake comes with a more aggressive body from the redesigned hood to the new bumpers. The tonneau cover and the extra spoilers are all custom-made. To make it even more distinct than a regular F-150, the special edition gets a set of 22-inch chrome wheels, and racing stripes that stretch from the hood, the roof, all the way to the rear of the truck, contrasting its blue exterior paint job – in typical Shelby fashion. The easiest way to spot one of these examples would be through the Super Snake badging that you’ll find on the front grille, and also in the interior.
Furthermore, a new Borla exhaust featuring a pair of stainless steel tips will be the one delivering the engine’s soundtrack. Suspension of the truck had also been improved for better handling. The best part here would be the three year / 36,000-mile warranty.
This incredible street truck by Shelby definitely has more power, more sound, more style, and handling prowess than that of a standard Ford F-150, according to Shelby AmericaN vice president of operations Vince LaViolette. The only sad part is that the Super Snake is designed for on-road use only, unlike its counterpart, due to the extremely low front air dam and side sills.
This special edition F-150 Super Snake is basically like a full-size truck with the power of a Dodge Hellcat. So do not expect this one to be priced like any of your regular trucks out there. Shelby will be selling this example for a little less than $100,000 - to be specific, $96,880. That base price is actually equivalent to three brand new Ford vehicles: a standard F-150 Raptor, a Ford Focus ST, and a Fiesta ST, plus you’ve got an extra $2,000 left for accessories. Though it had just been released, don’t be surprised if all 150 Super Snakes have already been allocated.
