Widebody 2017 Ford Mustang Super Snake Concept
With its new Super Snake, officially dubbed the Widebody Concept, Shelby has gone down a different route by creating a hardcore Mustang that has been designed to deliver the ultimate in performance around a racetrack.
Shelby has yet to make a decision about whether or not the concept will reach production but the finished product looks ready to show the Camaro ZL1 what it’s capable of with an overhauled exterior and interior and most importantly, some serious mechanical modifications.
Shelby has installed a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine under the hood which delivers 750 hp, more than enough to leave the GT350R for dead. To complement the increased power are four-piston Brembo calipers and 16-inch rotors at the front and 14-inch rotors at the rear.
Arguably of more importance than the improved straight line and braking performance are the chassis changes. This includes adjustable coilover suspension, new rear lower control arms, a 4-inch wider rear track and a 2.5-inch wider track up front.
