We will continue to build them until all cars are built. If you cannot have your car here this year, this is no problem. As long as you have a 2007 GT500, we can build it into a 40th car. We will only stop building these once we have reached the production limit.

 

SHIPPING

We are also working with a few shipping companies to try to help save you money. Once we have a better schedule, we will be working with you to help get your car shipped to us and then back home. Of course you can chose your own company or pick up and deliver the car yourself.

Shelby GT500 Super Snake Update

 

PRODUCTION UPDATE

 

The Super Snake project will begin in the 4th Quarter this year. We have only built one Super Snake, the concept car. Many of you have already seen pictures of this beast and some have actually seen it in person. “Menacing” is the best word I have heard used to describe it.

 

Super Snake upgrades are available for all GT500 07’ and 08’ model year cars. You supply the base GT500.

 

We have started making calls for the Super Snake and taking deposits and assigning CSM numbers. We have lots of calls to make and we will make them in the order that we received requests.

 

The CSM Numbering of the Super Snake will look like this:

07SS0001

08SS0001

 

07,08- year model

SS- Super Snake

0001-sequencing number.

 

A 40th anniversary grill badge will be optional for all 07’ Super Snakes.

 

Adrienne Poplin will be the point of contact on the Super Snake. 702-942-7325 or e-mail at adriennep@shelbyautos.com. She will be very busy for the next few weeks making calls on the Super Snake. Any general questions about the package can also be answered by Doug Sinclair, at the same number or dougs@shelbyautos.com.

 

STRIPES

All Super Snake packages will get triple Matte Black Stripes. No exceptions, we want people to be able to recognize this outstanding package from a distance and know exactly what it is…..especially when it approaches in their review view mirror…..time to move over…. If you haven’t ordered your car yet and want this package it should be ordered without a stripe to make the conversion cleaner as the old stripes will have to be removed if they are already installed.

 

Super Snake parameters are as follows:

2007 or 2008 GT500.

Coupe or Convertible

Price for the 600HP and 700+HP version is $27995.00. If testing requires a different blower at the 725HP level, we will evaluate the price.

OTHER QUESTIONS

On both packages, we will only give credit for previously modified cars if the components have been purchased from Shelby Performance Parts. The components that we will give credit for must be one of the components used in our package. We will credit you in the amount of the cost for the parts only, not labor. Floor mats are excluded because the mats are different.

 

Thank you for your continued interest in genuine Shelby Performance packages. They truly make your Shelby something special. Your business and satisfaction are important to us.

 

Best regards,

Team Shelby.

Well a little disapointed in the stripe option. A white vert with black stripes. What ever happened to performace white with blue stripes. Classic Shelby racing colors. And 600HP option for verts only? I will have to think awhile over this. Spending nearly 28 grand US for something i dont really like is hard to come to terms with. I really want my car worked on by shelby but under the conditions and money?

You guys are prob right but Carrol Shelby is know as an inovator, not an Engineer!!! If there is a way to put 700+ HP in a vert i am sure they could figure it out. It just seems they are taking the easy way out. As for the stripe options for the SS or 40th i guess it is up to the eye of the beholder. The 25 grand U.S/Canadian is true. It is nice to be on par for once!!! LOL!!!

To handle that kind of torque and horsepower, Shelby would have to pull all of the body panels and restructure and strengthen the framework of the car. That would be a very expensive proposition.

As far as the stripes go, all I can say is that I obviously have a Torch Red coupe with Performance White stripes, and although I was very happy with my choice of stripe colour, I think the Torch Red looks smokin hot with Satin Silver stripes!!!

 

Although I think Carroll would definately agree with you about not being an engineer, there is not question about his more than impressive ablility to "engineer", design and build some of the most capable and impressive performing cars ever built.

King,

 

I agree with your comments regarding Mr. Shelby not being and engineer but engineering the ride for success.

 

As far as the stripes go, I'm still one of those not on board that my car will end up with the look that I can live with long term after the 40th package is installed. I have yet to see a Performance White with the Special Shelby Satin Silver Stripes (SSSSS) but my expectations, unfortunately, are not very high for the final look. Performance White/Satin Silver will look just like the 07 SGT, which is not as striking most other color combinations and may be one of the reasons they are not selling. I'd like to see the actual figures of the 07 SGT white vs black sold to see which is more popular.

 

I'm keeping the option open to remove the Silver Stripes and replace with the original Tungsten. This was a trade off that I had to come to grips with in order to get the 40th Anniversary package and performance upgrades.

 

Contrary to preproduction rheteric, there is at least one Vista Blue that does not have Satin Silver Stripes that has been converted to a 40th Anniversary package and registered with Shelby. It retained it's Performance Whie stripes. It belongs to the winner of the 2007 Shelby GT500 raffle. He lives somewhere in AZ.

I agree that he is a genius when it comes to making things fast and work well. It is just a shame that you have to be limited in choices!! I will have to think about it for awhile that is all. If you guys here or get ahold of any pics that are a SS or 40th vert please send them to me.

 

Thank-you

 

Scott.

So, does anyone have a 40th package yet for their car other than red? I'd love to see pics of the other colors done up in a 40th package (other than the promo pics). Thanks!

Yeah, I know, you posted it, but it's just a single thumbnail from the Shelby promo. I'm wanting to see if anyone has a 40th package on something other than red that they can post pics of. Thanks!

That's not necessarily good for either the U.S. or Canada. Less buying power for U.S. citizens in Canada is not good for either side because we will buy less from Canada.

Edit: Glad your dollars go farther down here.

I agree Blayne, in as many ways as we gain by the increased value of our dollar, as compared to yours, we also lose. It has been 30 years since our dollar was worth more than yours.

 

But I have not spent this kind of cash south of the border in some time (40th), so now works well for me. I have saved enough to offset the taxes on the package. Now, that I have secured such a low package number on my 40th, I have kind of lost the ability to call my Shelby a daily driver. And when ever the time comes for me to pick up a used Mustang GT convertable or possibly a Porsche Boxter as my daily, I will be shopping American and saving myself some cash.

Let me know when you change the rules striping etc. and the price comes down and you might have another customer(s). The way things are being handled now I don't think you're going to have to worry about selling out. I'll bet you're not even close to hitting your target and you won't doing business the way you are. Most people aren't STUPID. You've got a few out there who either have money to throw away or just don't get it. In other words whatever you say must be right. I wish your SAI was being run differently and Carroll was in charge...I have a feeling things would be much different. Give it a year and.......................................

Rip, for the life of me, I can't understand why you are such a negative person. The package is the package. How many other companies do you get to have so much input on a vehicle? How many other companies are as responsive to customer inquiries and feedback?

If you don't like the stripes, when you get the car pull them off and change the stripes. It would not be factory original, but it's ultimately your choice since it's your car.

Also, what makes you think that Carroll is not in charge? He is very involved in everything.

As far as the value of the car- see one first. Get a ride in one, if you can. Both the 40th and the Super Snake are impressive both visually and in performance.

Interesting how you can pass judgement on a vehicle that you have neither seen nor driven, but that's also your perrogative...

Most people aren't STUPID. You've got a few out there who either have money to throw away or just don't get it. In other words whatever you say must be right. I wish your SAI was being run differently and Carroll was in charge...I have a feeling things would be much different. Give it a year and.......................................

 

 

I won't offer you any words to convince you of anything.

 

But I DON'T appreciate you calling me or anyone else around here STUPID!!!

 

I bet you wouldn't be so free to offer your insulting rants in person.......

First of all, I didn't call you or anyone else on this thread stupid. And if you knew my background and who I am, I've called a lot of people stupid to their face. I'll leave it at that.

Let's leave it all together!!!

 

I think that the 40th Package, as is, is awesome. My car is completed and waiting for me at SAI right now. I am thrilled with my decision to do it. I think SAI is doing an incredible

job, under the guidance and direction of Amy. You are entitled to your opinions, whether they be positive or not. But this is a site of enthusiasts about Shelby performance passion.

If you don't feel that way. It's fine with me, but keep your negativity to yourself. Whatever your background is, and who you are is irrelevant, and maybe you ought to stop calling

people stupid, before you tell the wrong person! I'll leave it at that.

I have saved enough to offset the taxes on the package.

I'm planning on getting the SS package when they get to my name. Also being from the north side of the border, I'm curious about the taxes. Do you pay Nevada taxes (do they have any), or GST, or both?

 

How are you getting it back across the border? A trucking company, or driving it? And do you have to declare the mods at Customs?

 

Sorry for all the nosy questions, just trying to plan. And congrats on the upgrades!

I know this is not a question for me Vogon but i just ordered some parts from the States and we dont have to pay there state tax. You might up front but i think you fill a form out and get re-embursed the full amout. At the border you pay 6% GST and 6.1% duty on the parts and or labour. Correct me if i am wrong King. Have a good one guys

I wonder if anyone at customs would even know the diff if you drive your car to the states for a week and then drive back home. If you got a paint-job in the US would you have to pay tax upon re-entering Canada? Maybe ethically you would. I would think there'd be no change on your car registration. I guess I'm thinking that what you brought to the US and what you bring back to Canada is the same car, just with some 'replacement' parts? ;-) If you drove across to buy a replacement battery, would it be subject to tax on re-entry? Maybe it's just on any purchase? Dinner? <lol> I wonder where the 'line' is on this.

 

Actually, I guess if SAI is shipping the take-offs back to Canada there may be some question on those -- hmmm, especially so if they're in the trunk <lol>

I'm going to do some more checking, but I think if you bring it back, it's subject to duty and tax. If you consume it there, well there's nothing left to declare. If you go to the US and put on new tires, do they have to be declared? Probably, but most people may not, especially if they drove on them enough to lose the "newness." Lots of people cross to get gas, at least they used to. I don't think there was duty.

 

Yeah, when they stick their nose in to sniff for drugs, they just might notice all the parts in the back seat. :banghead:

I know one thing those border guards have the power of god. I would not chance them tearing your car apart and empounding it if you get caught. It is not worth it!!! Just be honest. It is not worth the 3 grand. IMHO!!
