Shelby Unveils F150 SuperSnake Concept

Recommended Posts

I have been building my own "shelby" version on my 2009 F250 SD

I have been looking at what stripes would work on it

Changed the grill, lights, wheels, cover, tune, exhaust, CAI, LED's etc

Want it to match the Shelby

600 hp & 1500 Ft-LBs so far on the 6.4L diesel

 

With just a CAI, tune, and exhaust??

Seems just like the gt500, with a few bolt ons you have crazy power

Looks kind of like the Ford SVT Adrenaline that they should of produced! I like it.

 

 

you can buy the adrenaline visual package simply by checking the box on your new sport track.

Why build these on the outdated 2003-2008 model year truck?

 

My only guess is there could be some type of emissions certification issue when trying to sell it with the whipple on a brand new truck.

Big ditto. How does your 6.4 run? I have an '08 F350 with the 6.4 that I absolutely despise. Did the exhaust and an SCT Livewire tuner, 5" lift, wheels, tires, stereo, the works. Looks great, runs like crap and does not match my car. I'd be all in for the F150 if I could unload this one.

I ask this because IMO most people wanting to spend this kind of money would want to drop off a brand new truck and have it converted.

 

It does look very cool. :)

 

Think about it. How many 03-08 MY F150 are out there vs 09-10 F150 MY. It's called a target rich environment.

exactly! there are over 800K trucks out there, we have dozens of orders already for this package!

 

The truck is solid and perfect for our kit. The parts will be sold separate from the performance. I expect parts by February

So there will be parts for Reg. cab, extended and crew cabs? Flareside and Styleside beds in all lengths? 3 different body style changes? 5 lug and 6 lug rims? 4.6, 5.4 2v,3v and supercharged engines? 8.8 and 9-3/4 rear gears? I can't wait to see this parts catalog. :lurk:

Shelby 08, I could agree with you more!

 

I was just saying year and a haft ago when I picked my Super Snake up from SAI, how cool that would look with my F150 resembling my Super Snake, pulling my SS inside my enclosed SS trailer. I see my dream coming true!!! :happy feet: :happy feet:

Team Shelby – Nov. 3, 2009 – Shelby Automobiles, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., (CSBI.PK) unveiled a Super Snake Ford F150 concept today at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Based on the popular Shelby GT500 Super Snake, the post-title package for the 2003-2008 F150 upgrades the truck’s handling, styling and power.

 

“Carroll Shelby pioneered the muscle truck segment over 20 years ago,” stated Amy Boylan, president of Shelby Autos. “Our team built this concept F150 Super Snake to see if the public is ready for another high performance Shelby truck. We took the same approach to this project as we do for every Shelby. With its ‘look at me’ styling, earth shattering power, stop-on-a-dime brakes and go cart-like handling, it’s a balanced performance truck that’s as desirable to drive as it is to look at.”

Shelby Autos teamed with Ford Racing and top suppliers such as Borla and Baer to develop the concept. The red 2007 F150 regular cab truck features a custom functional hood and fascias, black Super Snake stripes and Alcoa Shelby wheels. The 5.4L engine was tweaked to churn out 475 horsepower through the automatic transmission while 6 piston Shelby brakes were added to stop the beast. The suspension was lowered 3 inches and tightened up to improve handling.

 

Enthusiasts can choose to have the entire package applied to their truck for the ultimate Shelby. However, the styling and the power/handling upgrades can also be installed individually.

“We’ll install the Super Snake package for the F150 at the Shelby Autos facility in Las Vegas,” added Gary Davis, Shelby Autos vice president of production. “In order to maintain the high level of quality and performance demanded by real enthusiasts, we’ll only build a few thousand per model year.”

 

The Ford F150 Super Snake post title package includes:

• Whipple supercharger kit

• Borla exhaust system

• DJM suspension

• 3.73:1 rear axle ratio

• Shelby-designed 22-inch wheels and tires with Pirelli P Scorpion tires

• Forged Shelby / Baer brakes with 6 piston calipers with cross drilled and vented rotors

• Custom front fascia, grill, carbon fiber splitter, fender vents and brake cooling ducts

• Custom front fascia, mesh grill and grill surround

• Custom side fender vents and rockers

• Unique fiberglass hood featuring a hood scoop and classic Shelby design

• Bed lid and rug with embroidered logos

• Shelby signature Super Snake stripes

• “Shelby” lettering across the rear tailgate

• “Super Snake” vehicle badges and official Shelby CSM interior plate

• Shelby signature embroidered headrests, floor mats and leather interior

The SS F150 looks really killer. Gary Davis has the first prototype and it was sitting in front of SAI yesterday I really like it.

no offense Amy, why do you/Shelby keep saying 2003-08, 04 is the 1st year of the newer body style, 03 is the 97-03 body style.

I just bought a 2010 L/M Navigator L (extended length) Tuxedo black--"Luicifer"--to tow "LuLu" around the country for meets and events. "Lucifer" in Shelby SS trim would would be an awesome road/tow vehicle. Lawd...Hurry up tax refund!

 

Worth the coins? Yeah...Hell Yeah!
