427 GT500E Super Snake (ELEANOR) from Unique Performance
Carroll Shelby built only one 427 GT500 “Super Snake” in 1967, which set new performance standards for speed and performance at the time. The mighty GT500E Super Snake is a modern evolution of that legendary car.
Built for Shelby by Unique Performance, the GT500E Super Snake is the most powerful regular production Shelby (based on a Ford Mustang) ever offered to the public. Each car features a 525 HP aluminum Shelby 427 engine (this car features an upgraded supercharged 725 HP aluminum Shelby 427 engine), Unique Performance rear suspension, Tremec transmission and many modern performance upgrades, as well as special badges and striping.
In 2002, Carroll Shelby and Unique Performance agreed to produce continuation Shelbys based on vintage 1960s Ford Mustangs with updated performance and comfort. Chip Foose has also partnered with Unique Performance building the Foose Stallion.
Only 45 total 427 GT500E Super Snakes were built (this car is number 29). Each GT500E received a Shelby VIN and was included in the Shelby American World Registry. With its stunning looks, blistering performance and limited availability, the Super Snake is destined to be one of the most desired collector cars in the world.
