  9. NEWS FOR Immediate RELEASE SHELBY F-150 SUPER SNAKE SPORT GOES INTO PRODUCTION, BECOMING USA’S FASTEST STREET TRUCK LAS VEGAS – December 7, 2019 – Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc. (CSBI:PK), will put its Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport concept into limited production, making it the fastest street legal limited edition truck available through Ford dealer showrooms. Only 250 of the 2020 model year trucks will be available in the USA, with a limited number available through select Shelby mod shops and distributors worldwide. The production Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport will be shown to the public for the first time at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, from January 11-19, 2020. Introduced at the 2019 SEMA show recently, Shelby American received overwhelming requests to build the V8 super truck, which will come with four-wheel drive and be available in both naturally aspirated and supercharged versions. During Shelby American tests, the truck went from 0-60 mph in just 3.45 seconds and reached 100 mph in a blazing fast 8.3 seconds. “The Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport was initially an R&D exercise to build a street legal truck that could deliver blistering performance,” said Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. “The reactions from enthusiasts, the media and Shelby dealers were amazing. In fact, they petitioned us very hard to put it into production. Our team fast tracked the development process and we’ll begin manufacturing the super trucks in Las Vegas during the first quarter of 2020.” The Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport features a Shelby-specific lowered suspension, up to 770 horsepower, throbbing exhaust note, custom wheels and new brake system. The exterior has a meaner and more aero look, while the interior has stylish Shelby amenities. “While we’re most recognized for Shelby Cobras and Shelby Super Snake Mustangs, Shelby American pioneered performance trucks over thirty years ago,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief of R&D. “Fast forward to 2019 and our four-door trucks are showing our stripes on roads worldwide. But we were missing a hot rod two-door that could dust the competition. The 2020 Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport is lightning fast, wicked fun to drive and has the track styling that Shelby fans crave.” The Shelby American team collaborated with Ford Performance and other partners to create the ultimate “super truck” concept vehicle. Input from enthusiasts encouraged Shelby American to put it into production and add some options that were not initially contemplated. “The supercharged concept truck was based on an entry level trim Ford F-150 and had only 755 horsepower,” said Patterson. “Enthusiasts asked for a higher content base truck, more power SHELBY AMERICAN TO PUT SUPER SNAKE SPORT F-150 CONCEPT INTO PRODUCTION Final.docx
  10. NEWS FOR Immediate RELEASE SHELBY AMERICAN TO UNVEIL SCORCHING FAST SHELBY GT500 DRAGON SNAKE MUSTANG AND SUPER SNAKE SPORT F-150 CONCEPTS LOS ANGELES – November 4, 2019 – Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc. (CSBI:PK), will introduce two concept vehicles, the 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 Dragon Snake and the Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150, at the SEMA show in Las Vegas this week. Both V8 supercharged vehicles were designed to deliver blistering performance, especially raw acceleration. The 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 Dragon Snake will be exhibited in Ford Motor Company’s display inside the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center beginning November 5th. The Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 truck will be unveiled during Shelby American’s invitation-only party at their facility on the evening of November 6 and then displayed there the rest of the week. “Our research and development team continually pushes the ‘bleeding edge’ of performance,” said Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. “These two concepts are an exploration of new capabilities, new technologies and potential new models. We optimized each vehicle for a specific task by leveraging new, innovative ideas. Now we’re seeking feedback from enthusiasts about the pair, including their thoughts on potential production.” The Shelby GT500 Dragon Snake is a modern take on a proven Shelby philosophy. During the 1960s, Shelby American offered a drag racing version of the Shelby Cobra called the “Dragonsnake.” Given the new Ford Shelby GT500’s dual clutch transmission and stout 5.2L engine, Shelby American reimagined Ford’s new Mustang supercar for that same mission. “The 2020 Shelby GT500 is truly amazing in stock configuration, but we wanted to explore its pure acceleration capabilities,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief of R&D. “So we worked closely with Ford Performance and other partners to create the ultimate ‘weapon of track destruction’ in the quarter mile.” The Shelby team’s design for the Dragon Snake adds more power to the car (800 HP+), revises the suspension for maximum grip and straight line acceleration, lightens the car, retunes the DCT and modifies the bodywork including unique wheels. A widebody option is also being considered. In addition to the engine tune, Shelby American added high-flow catalytic converters, new lightweight glasswork and other innovations. The Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 concept was built in response to enthusiast requests for a scorching fast street truck. “While our current four-door Shelby trucks are extremely popular, hardcore fans dreamed of a two door in the spirit of the great 1960s muscle cars,” said Patterson. “After an event where we were besieged with those requests, Vince LaViolette and I began penciling out a Shelby Super Snake Sport over dinner. We took that idea to trusted partners, suppliers, enthusiasts and team members to collaborate on the design and content. The Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 is that vision come to life as a concept vehicle.” The Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 features a Shelby specific lowered suspension, 755 horsepower supercharged V8, throbbing exhaust note, stylish wheels and new brake system. The exterior was revised for a meaner and more aero look, while the interior has the Shelby amenities expected of a super truck. “Our goal was to build the unrivaled ‘king of the road’ F-150 and a nightmare for any other truck,” said LaViolette. “And it is. We found the Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 concept astonishingly fast during our testing. This concept certainly lives up to our initial vision for the truck.” The two vehicles were designed, engineered and built at Shelby American at 6405 Ensworth Street in Las Vegas.
