The iconic musclecar is now available in the Philippines.
Autohub Group recently announced the entry of Shelby to the Philippine market with the introduction of the newest iteration of the Shelby Super Snake. Based on the Ford Mustang GT, the Shelby Super Snake boasts of aesthetic, and performance enhancements on the Ford Mustang GT for a faster and more thrilling drive.
Finding its roots in the first ’65 GT350 Mustang that put the ponycar in the pinnacle of the performance world, the 2020 Shelby Super Snake is Shelby’s top-of-the-line high performance Mustang. Sharing the same displacement as the first GT350 (302ci), the Super Snake combines Ford’s iconic 5.0 liter V8 engine with forced induction via an Edelbrock supercharger for an increased output of up to 825 horsepower. Making sure to handle the additional heat generated by the engine is an external cooling upgrade specifically designed by Shelby American Inc, which consists of a new radiator, aluminum tank, and heat exchanger. Performance half shafts, transmission, and a Ford Performance exhaust complete the drivetrain upgrades. Handling is sharpened as well with additional stability brought by a Ford Performance Track Pack suspension set.
Outside, the Shelby Mustang is fitted with a new front bumper, hood, grilles, rocker panels, front splitter, rear spoiler, rear tail panel, rear diffuser and more. Wheels and tire combination are Shelby 20-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped with Shelby performance spec tires. To bring the Super Snake to a complete but precise stop, the braking system is handled by Brembo brakes, which consists of massive red six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers at the rear.
The cabin of the Super Snake Mustang is upgraded with new floor mats and door sill plates, gauge cluster with gauges, custom Shelby badging on the engine cover and dashboard.
The result is a well-engineered car with stunning capabilities. On pump gasoline and street legal tires, the Shelby Super Snake can go from 0 to 100kph in just 3.5 seconds. To achieve this feat, almost all Shelby-exclusive components were developed and tested with original equipment manufacturers.
“We are thrilled to finally unleash the Shelby brand to our market! Indeed the iconic Shelby brand will bring more excitement and fuel passion to motorists and petrol-heads alike,” said Mr. Willy Tee Ten, President of Autohub Group of Companies.
The Shelby Super Snake is now available for retail at ACCS— Autohub Car Care Services.
