During our recent visit to Las Vegas Shelby, had the opportunity to end the latest 2011 Shelby GT500 Super Snake. The last time I tried a Super Snake in December 2007. At that time, we have a 00-60 race 4.4 seconds, which is fast by any standard. Today we did much better with a blistering run 3.9 Mon The new rate has not given up and led this improvement, and then some, to Las Vegas Motor Speedway dragstrip pass a sec 11.7 128.7 mph. Not bad for a cold day of 52 degrees.
The car begins life as a customer bought the 2011 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake will convert the status of $ 34,245. It includes increasing the capacity of the compressor to drive a Ford Racing Whipple, helping the new all-aluminum 5.4-liter Ford V-8 makes 750 hp, 150 more than our previous test car. More is available if desired.
A number of body panels and interior parts are changed, foreign exchange short-installed, the 3.73:1 final drive mounted and tweaked suspension with adjustable dampers from Ford Racing. Note that the previous generation of Pirelli tires were replaced with new Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G: 2s. Even in plucked freshly coated with a compound of traction, grip needed to end this enormous power was hard to come by, not just at launch, but also in turn 01/02. It was hard not to smile every time they lit up the rear wheels, so hard my face started hurting.
