2018 Ford Shelby Super Snake Arrives With More Power

The Ford Mustang isn’t a lightweight when it comes to performance, but now the Shelby team has outdone themselves. The 2018 Ford Shelby Super Snake arrives with more power than ever before. The team went beyond creating a muscle car and created what very well could become an American legend.

The Super Snake package has been available since 2015, but it’s never featured this kind of performance. A Mustang equipped with the package will boast a minimum of 710 hp. Opting for the top performance upgrade will net drivers more than 800 hp and a 0-to-60-mph of just 3.5 seconds.

The 2018 Ford Shelby Super Snake rolls out on 20-inch forged aluminum wheels with an available track suspension and wide-body kit. Brembo® brakes provide the utmost stopping power, and trust us when we say this sports car will need it.

Even without the package, the Ford Shelby Super Snake is a sight to behold. The tuned muscle car bears a striking stare with a front splitter, side sills, and rear spoiler. The performance-themed monster of a muscle car will feature unique serial numbers and a spot in the Official Shelby Registry.2018 Ford Shelby Super Snake It should come as no surprise that the 2018 Ford Shelby Super Snake will see a limited production run.

Of course, we likely won’t see the Super Snake on our dealership lot, but we do have the already powerful and sporty Mustang on our lot for a test drive here at Palmetto Ford.

Two important outcomes have surfaced since Ford and the UAW union reached an agreement for contract labor.   First, Ford is able to create 12,000 new jobs in the U.S. that were initially being lost overseas.  The jobs should be filled by 2015.

Second, according to the contract, there will be a new engine being built at the Romeo Engine Plant.  Ford will be manufacturing a new 5.8-liter supercharged V-8 engine for the 2013 Shelby Mustang GT500.

V8 Engine

The current GT500 includes a 5.4-liter V8 engine that produces 550 horsepower.  The 5.8 supercharged has the potential to produce 600 horsepower.

The new contract will also bring $16 billion investment to U.S. factories within the ford organization.
