MUSTANG SHELBY GT500 SUPER VENOM
Anderson Germany : Company's latest creation: the Shelby GT500 Super Venom.
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a hard to improve muscle car in large part because the car already looks and performs like a tried-and-true Shelby.
Dubbed the Super Venom Edition, Anderson Germany successfully outfitted the Mustang Shelby GT500 with a really cool body that not only drives up the muscle car’s aggressive looks, but also helps improve its performance and handling credentials.
As soon as the vehicle was bought, it was directly transported to the port to be shipped to Germany. Once it was received by Anderson Germany, they dismembered the car and cut its exterior body. When building the car back, they added steel to obtain a 6 inches wider body. Following the assembling, they painted the car in its initial black and red colors.
In 2012, Ford produced 390 black Shelbys and the Super Venom Edition is the only one that has an additional 6 inches of wideness while maintaining a body completely made of steel.
The tuner began by fitting the GT500 with a matte black exterior, red-striped, wide body that includes a front spoiler, flared arches, rear widening, carbon hood vent, side skirts, and new rear diffuser with unique tailpipes on each side.
To further emphasize the muscle car's attention-grabbing looks, Anderson Germany used the same theme for the wheels (comes with two sets from Anderson Germany, made with carbon fiber: 1st (to fit the wider body) set of wheels that is accepted in the USA but not in Canada, so the owner personally uses original set (before the car was widened) with added spacers made by Anderson Germany too, specially for this car) as well as adding a number of red cobra badges, further giving the car that distinctive look that separates itself from the rest of the aftermarket work done on the American muscle car. The original interior was completely redone from A to Z, including custom Recaro seats made with leather, suede, red stitching and carbon fiber detailing.
With a 5.4 V8 engine and six-speed manual transmission, this beast is capable of producing 662HP and 631lb- ft of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 in 4 seconds and its top speed is 190mph.
