Shelby American announced its plan to unveil the 2012 Shelby GT500 Super Snake at the New York Auto Show.

American has a rich history at the New York International Auto Show,"
said John Luft, president of Shelby American Inc. "The very first
Shelby car was introduced there in 1962, as well as the 1968 and 2008
Shelby GT500KR and the 2006 Shelby Hertz GT-H. This year, we're
returning with one of the most powerful and important Shelbys ever

to the company, the Super Snake will pack the most horsepower ever from
an American muscle car introduced at the show, 800 to be exact. The
car is legal in all 50 states and owners will be able to use pump gas.
Among the many upgrades used to make this kind of power is a
Shelby/Kenne Bell supercharger, which, not surprisingly, voids any
remaining powertrain warranty from Ford.

Other goodies include:

• Borla exhaust system

• Forged Shelby / Baer brakes with six-piston calipers

• Fiberglass hood with classic Shelby design and pins

• Ford Racing handling pack that includes dynamic adjustable dampers, lower springs, tuned stabilizer bars and front strut brace

base price for a 2012 Shelby Mustang GT500 Super Snake is $82,894
according to Shelby American's Web site, including the cost of a donor
Ford Mustang GT. The 800-horsepower supercharger option is an extra
$1500 on its own, but we suspect you'll want to budget a total of closer
to $100,000 for a few more Shelby-optional cooling and suspension
modifications with that kind of power
