Shelby American announced today that it will offer a Super Snake post title package for the 2011 Ford Shelby GT500. The new package includes new styling cues but also an optional 800 horsepower tuned engine as well as a limited number of 1,000 units.

The 2011 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake post title package includes plenty of goodies such as a new Ford Racing handling pack including dynamic adjustable dampers, lowering springs, tuned stabilizer bars, and front strut tower brace, a new 6-speed manual gearbox with 3.73:1 rear axle ratio, a new Borla exhaust system, an optional Shelby / Eibach handling pack, short-throw shifter and front brake cooling ducts and behind the door side scoops.

In order to upgrade the all aluminum-block 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine delivering 550 horsepower and 510 ft.-lb. of torque, Shelby American used a Shelby/Ford Racing supercharger upgrade producing over 660 hp and 590 ft.-lbs. of torque.

But this wasn’t enough and the tuner installed a new Shelby/Ford Racing (or Shelby/Kenne Bell) supercharger kit producing 750 hp with upgraded drive shaft, billet twin 75mm throttle body and exclusive badges.

Furthermore, an the firm installed an optional Shelby/Kenne Bell 800 horsepower tune on pump gas. Due to this amount of power, new forged Shelby / Baer brakes with 6 piston calipers and cross drilled / vented rotors was installed.

Regarding its design, the new car comes with a unique fiberglass hood featuring classic Shelby design and pins, Shelby signature Super Snake stripes in either matte black or matte white, "Shelby" lettering across the rear deck lid as well as "Super Snake" vehicle badges and official Shelby CSM interior plate. Inside, an optional two tone leather interior is available as well as Shelby signature embroidered headrests, floor mats and other Shelby designed components.

The kit is completed by the Shelby-designed Alcoa 20-inch wheels in durabright or anthracite and by the "Super Snake" vehicle badges and official Shelby CSM interior plate. Regarding the pricing, the 750 hp package is offered for $30,245 including installation but not the car.
