That’s it. 50 years have passed since the first Shelby modified Mustang monster hit the roads back in 1962. Great Anniversary for both Ford and Shelby and also great opportunity to satisfy muscle car enthusiasts by producing limited run of Anniversary Shelbys – GTS, GT350 and Super Snake packages. Those, of course, will cost extra to the default price of 2012 GT [+ $20-25K] or Shelby GT500 [+$60K]. There will be only 100 units built for each model – both 50 in white and 50 in black, all combined with gold racing stripes.
The 5.4 liter supercharged V8 Super Snake has a fatal bite of 750 horses hiding under the unique body kit’s hood. The Snake will also feature upgraded interior and matte black wheels, Borla cat-back exhaust.
The GT350 Shelby will deliver 525 HP out of the 5.0 liter also supercharged V8 engine. It shares Borla exhaust with the Super Snake, so as the Ford Racing suspension and improved brakes.
The GTS package may run of both V6 or 5.0 liter Mustang with supercharging options to boost performance.
