Shelby Unveils Widebody Super Snake Concept


Quote:
Super Snake is a name synonymous with only the most superlatively speedy Ford Mustangs and this one is no exception with Shelby American treating us to the first official take on a widebody S550 Mustang.

Thanks to a wider track, upgraded suspension, brakes, tires and wheels, Shelby American’s new Widebody Concept diverges from the Super Snake’s normal affinity for gobbling up straight lines and gains new acumen as an apex eater.

Notably, the rear track grows wider by 4 inches, while the front gains 2.5 inches. Other chassis upgrades include a fully adjustable coil-over suspension system, a new set of rear lower control arms, plus stronger spindles and hubs.

Under the hood, the Super Snake sports a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 pulled from the popular 50th Anniversary Shelby Super Snake, with 750 horsepower on tap it has enough balls to bury just about anything else Detroit has to offer.

The brakes were swapped for four-piston Brembo calipers which bite 16-inch front rotors and 14-inchers in the back. Everything rides on a set of wider wheels and tires to get the Mustang’s new found power down.
