The Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport started as an R&D exercise, but enough enthusiasts have expressed interest that Shelby is putting it into limited production. You can now call this the F-150 Super Snake Sport, and the striped monster will hit select Ford dealerships starting next year. You better be as quick on the draw as this truck is off the line, however, because only 250 will be produced.
All Super Snakes will start life as F-150s with the 5.0-liter V8 and four-wheel drive. To get to the 770 horsepower mark, Shelby adds a supercharger system. Shelby claims that in this configuration, the Super Snake will hit 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds and 100 mph in 8.3.
Buyers can opt to stay naturally aspirated, which means the truck will have the same 395 horsepower as a stock V8 F-150. Besides the available engine upgrade, Shelby lowers the truck with new control arms and coilovers up front, and new shocks and lowering shackles for the rear. Slotted brake rotors are fitted all around, with the front ones stopped by six-piston Baer brake calipers. Naturally Shelby also fits custom bodywork including bumpers, hood, grille, bed cover and vents. Inside is custom leather upholstery, aluminum pedals and faux carbon fiber trim. There are plenty of badges inside and out, too.
The price reflects that though, and the “slow” version starts at $86,085 while the supercharged F-150 Super Snake Sport starts at a jaw-dropping $93,385, “including a well-optioned Ford F-150”. They can only be ordered through select Shelby dealers across North America and come with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.
