1000 Horsepower Shelby GT500 Super Snake In The Works?

1000 Horsepower Shelby Super Snake GT500

Even though Shelby American has been talking about slowing down on creating new vehicles and focusing more on its aftermarket parts business it recently posted a question on its website asking enthusiasts which concept vehicles enticed them the most. While most of the vehicles consisted of what we consider run of the mill performance packages that included the obligatory body and chassis upgrades, there was one that caught our eye.

Concept vehicle "2010-04a" is a $100,000 (not including the car!) Mustang performance package based on the 2007-2009 Shelby GT500. It would be powered by a Shelby designed twin turbo system that would propel it to over 1,000 horsepower! With the help of an adjustable boost controller owners could lower the power output for their daily commute, and then ramp up the boost on weekends to bring out the true monster that lies beneath its hood. Other upgrades would include a 10 point roll cage for safety, special wide body kit, 9" Ford rear end, and an adjustable coil over suspension system. While Shelby didn't propose a name for this package we assume that if it ever made it to production it would likely wear some variation of the Shelby Super Snake moniker.

So what do you think? Would you be willing to part with that much money for a Mustang? You'd definitely be the only kid on your block with one!
