Shelby Super Snake to cost $70,000

Remember the 600 HP Shelby Super Snake?  Of course you do – who could forget a 600 HP supercharged Mustang?  At the time of the press release, there were no pricing details at all, so everyone was speculating wildly on what this beast would cost.  Well, speculate no longer, the pricing is here, and it’s official, and it’s insane.

Start with a good old fashioned $43,000 Shelby GT500.  Then reach into your wallet again, and pull out an additional $28,000 – for a grand total of $71,000 for a 600 HP Shelby Super Snake.  Now, I’m about as big a Mustang fan as there is.  I don’t know if I can even get on board with a $43,000 Mustang, no matter how fast it is.  Now we’re talking about a $71,000 Mustang?  That’s Corvette Z06 territory, folks.  Yes, I know the Super Snake will outclass the Z06 in raw horsepower.  Chances are the Z06 is still faster, and of course the handling speaks for itself. 

Is the world ready for a $70k Ford?  I have no idea.  But it’s coming anyway.  Whether it will sell or not is still up in the air.
