For Sale: 2008 Shelby GT500 in Clarence, Iowa

Vehicle Description

2008 Ford Mustang Cobra Super Snake We don't always give this much context, even when we sell cars that cost more. But this car? If you're here, you either appreciate, want or will own this car. It deserves every ounce of context and backstory you have time for. That being said, here's a question for you....If a lot is good, then more must be better, right? I'm pretty sure any doctor would agree. At least that's the conclusion I've drawn for the impetus behind one of Carroll Shelby's last projects, the last Super Snakes ever made, and this version happens to be one of his 725+ HP BEASTS. The aftermarket changes to take the GT500 to Super Snake status include a long list of Racing parts, as well as proprietary Shelby bits to build a unique-looking, fully warranted alternative to the already impressive 600-bhp out of the gate machine to this one. If you want the DEFINITION, in our opinion at least, of a muscle car? Here it is. And the makers, including Carroll Shelby hiimself made sure this car was special. As mentioned above in case you need reminding and evidence, this Super Snake's 5.4-liter V-8 has been pushed to 725-plus bhp. Of course, that sort of stuff is not without its charm and just awesome. Moreso, it is an understatement to say that the Super Snake is a beast. The OG engine tested out 605 bhp and 590 lb.-ft. of torque as measured by the Shelby-provided dynamometer data. That is for the BASE Super Snake. Not this one. It wasn't officially measured after the upgrades, but you get the picture. More is better, right? ;-) Look at our pics and watch the video. The ride is supple for a car with taut suspension and massive tires, and the Super Snake, (with a little heads up), can be driven more easily than almost, if not all, supercars out there by anyone. Yes, supercar is in the conversation. Bonus: This car offers all the comforts and diversions one would want such as air conditioning, cruise, power everything, comfortable seating, comfortable ride and a 500-watt sound system to top it off. What the Super Snake offers is a trip down memory lane while reminding that this is a modern-day muscle car. But unlike those days of yore, where muscle cars were fairly crude, uncomfortable and about the only thing they did well was rip off respectable quarter-mile times, the Super Snake is highly refined, provides all our current expected creature comforts and is much, much more sophisticated. Again, we have every detail about this car that you might have a question about, so call us, look at the pictures, watch the video. Don't let this one sneak away.
