Shelby American has revealed the 2024 Shelby Super Snake, a high-performance variant of the new seventh-generation Ford Mustang GT, at an event in Florida. The Super Snake boasts a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine that delivers an impressive 620kW (830hp) of power when equipped with the optional 3.0-litre Whipple supercharger, representing a significant increase over the stock Mustang GT's 358kW output.

Limited to just 500 units worldwide for the 2024 model year, the Shelby Super Snake will be available in Australia through Mustang Motorsport, albeit in very limited quantities. While official pricing has not been disclosed, the Super Snake is expected to command a price tag exceeding $200,000.

The 2024 Super Snake features an array of performance upgrades, including a Borla exhaust system, cooling enhancements, performance half shafts, a Shelby suspension system, brake rotor upgrades, and lightweight 20-inch forged magnesium wheels. Extensive use of carbon fiber throughout the vehicle further enhances its performance capabilities and aggressive styling.

Exterior modifications include a unique vented aluminum hood, carbon-fiber front wheel arch extensions, wider body panels, a rear ducktail spoiler, and a carbon-fiber rear wing for coupe models. The interior receives a "Shelby spec" treatment, incorporating various Shelby-branded elements to distinguish it from the standard Mustang GT.

Why this matters: The 2024 Shelby Super Snake represents the pinnacle of Mustang performance, showcasing the latest advancements in engine technology and aerodynamic design. Its limited production run and high-performance capabilities make it a highly sought-after vehicle for enthusiasts and collectors alike.

With only 500 units slated for production, the 2024 Shelby Super Snake is poised to become an instant collector's item. Its combination of raw power, aggressive styling, and exclusive availability through Mustang Motorsport in Australia is sure to generate significant interest among performance car enthusiasts.
