Built to succeed the SVT Cobra and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the launch of Carroll Shelby’s brutal original GT 500 for 1967, the 500-horsepower 2007 Ford Shelby GT 500 took pride of place as the most powerful production Mustang ever created. Looking, sounding, performing, and handling as any car with the Shelby name should, the GT 500 has at its heart a supercharged 5.4-liter V-8 based on a cast-iron cylinder block with four-valve heads and a Roots-type Eaton blower.
Following its purchase from Crown Motors in Redding, Calif., on 11-29-06, this car was sent to the Shelby automotive plant in Las Vegas, Nev., in late 2008 to be converted into a GT 500 Super Snake. This conversion included the installation of a Kenne-Bell supercharger, Eibach suspension, Borla exhaust, new rear end, upgraded braking system, Super Snake wheels, high performance tires, new hood, and a number of other upgrades. The end result of this work was a high-performance GT 500 Super Snake Mustang producing 725+ horsepower with an estimated top speed of 200 mph.
This vehicle carries the Shelby ID number 07SS0261. It is a one-owner car with just 11,437 miles and has not left California since purchase, other than its shipment to the Shelby plant in Las Vegas for the Super Snake conversion. The car has never been driven in the rain and has never suffered any kind of accident damage. The 40th anniversary and Super Snake packages made a great car even better, and this vehicle is a great case in point.
Since the Super Snake conversion was performed, numerous further upgrades were made, including the addition of the Shelby 427 package, with this being car numbered 12 of 427. Other mechanical updates include the Shelby short-throw shifter package, engine-compartment strut bar, engine dress-up pieces, the polished aluminum upgrade for the Kenne-Bell supercharger, powder-coated ignition covers, fiberglass radiator cover, and a wheel alignment kit. Interior comfort is enhanced with Hushmat fitted throughout the car and the addition of a leather headliner and sun visors, plus a Kenwood audio system with upgraded speakers, navigation, and satellite radio, plus installation of a backup camera and interior accent pieces, plus a special cover under the rear decklid and a Python security system. Exterior accent pieces round out this outstanding Shelby Mustang. All documents, receipts and service records are available.
If you are looking for an outstanding modern Shelby supercar, this GT 500 Super Snake demands close attention.
