Shelby Autos Uncages the Super Snake Package for the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500

2010ss07-800

LAS VEGAS - June 26, 2009 - Continued demand for a “Super Snake” post title package has led Shelby Automobiles to unveil a new program to turn a limited number of 2010 Ford Shelby GT500s into Shelby super cars. The Super Snake package will include enhancements to the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500’s handling, styling and power; output ratings will range from 630 to over 725 horsepower. Exclusivity will be assured as a limited number of Super Snakes will be built at the Shelby Autos facility in Las Vegas or one of the Mod Shops, beginning in August 2009.

“We take great pride in engineering fast, fun cars that people love to drive,” said Carroll Shelby. “Over the past 12 months, my team of hot rodders was hard at work on a Super Snake package for the next generation GT500. Every lesson we learned kicking the competition around on the track over the past two years has been poured into this new car to keep Shelby owners out front.”

Born on the drag strip and road course at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Ford Racing and Shelby Automobiles dialed in an even more aggressive suspension and engine package for the 2010 car.

“Since we introduced the Super Snake package for the GT500 in 2007, this Shelby has become the pinnacle of current generation muscle cars,” added Amy Boylan, president of Shelby Automobiles. “While the stock GT500 is a fine car, serious enthusiasts know that they can come to us to make their Shelby even better. For those who crave a harder edged Shelby, this is your car.”

The 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake post title package includes:
- Ford Racing handling pack including Dynamic adjustable dampers, lowering springs, tuned stabilizer bars, and front strut tower brace is standard for the Super Snake
- Ford Racing Supercharger upgrade kit producing over 630 HP and 590 ft.-lbs. of torque
- Borla exhaust system on the 630 HP Ford Racing Super Snake Package
- 6-speed manual transmission with 3.73:1 rear axle ratio
- Either a Shelby/Ford Racing or Shelby/Kenne Bell supercharger kit producing 725 HP with upgraded drive shaft, billet twin 75mm throttle body and exclusive badges

Customers interested in bringing their 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 to one of the Shelby Mod Shops for transformation should contact Roger Sorel with Shelby Automobiles at (702) 942-7325. The price of the 630 HP package is $29,495 and the 725 HP package is $33,495 including installation but not the car. Each vehicle will be listed in the official Shelby registry.

Complete Super Snake packages will only be available through Shelby Automobiles; some products comprising the package will be offered by Shelby Automobiles and Ford Racing later this year.

Carroll Shelby Foundation Expands Mission to Include Education - GARDENA, Calif. - June 11, 2009

The Carroll Shelby Children’s Foundation announced today that the organization’s Board of Directors approved a name change to the Carroll Shelby Foundation. The change reflects the Foundation’s broadened mission to include continuing education for young people. The Carroll Shelby Foundation will continue to aid children battling life-threatening illnesses as it expands its reach into the classroom.

“This is an exciting time for the Foundation,” said Carroll Shelby, president of the Carroll Shelby Foundation. “We’ve been trying for years to find ways to broaden our mission to continue helping kids later in life. The automotive industry has been good to me for many years. What better way to give back than through the support of education in the automotive field? Now we can take children from their first heartbeat through their educational years.”home-002

The Carroll Shelby Foundation will conduct fundraising programs in two important areas that are close to Carroll’s heart. One will continue to provide financial assistance to children battling life-threatening illnesses and support organizations conducting research in the fields of coronary and organ transplant management. The new, expanded outreach is designed to aid children through scholarships and educational programs in automotive and related fields. The first step in this direction will be working with the Carroll Shelby Automotive Technology Center at Northeast Texas Community College.home-003

“Mr. Shelby created the Foundation in 1991 after receiving a life-saving heart transplant,” explained Jenni Shreeves, director of the Carroll Shelby Foundation. “From an initial focus on organ and tissue donation, we evolved into helping children who face all types of serious illnesses. And now, we look forward to assisting kids as they grow into young adults. We’re confident that our partners and donors will share our vision and support the new initiatives and fundraising programs that are on the horizon.”home-001
