LAS VEGAS - Shelby Automobiles, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., (CSBI.PK) unveiled a Super Snake Ford F150 concept today at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Based on the popular Shelby GT500 Super Snake, the post-title package for the 2003-2008 F150 upgrades the truck’s handling, styling and power.

“Carroll Shelby pioneered the muscle truck segment over 20 years ago,” stated Amy Boylan, president of Shelby Autos. “Our team built this concept F150 Super Snake to see if the public is ready for another high performance Shelby truck. We took the same approach to this project as we do for every Shelby. With its ‘look at me’ styling, earth shattering power, stop-on-a-dime brakes and go cart-like handling, it’s a balanced performance truck that’s as desirable to drive as it is to look at.”

Shelby Autos teamed with Ford Racing and top suppliers such as Borla and Baer to develop the concept. The red 2007 F150 regular cab truck features a custom functional hood and fascias, black Super Snake stripes and Alcoa Shelby wheels. The 5.4L engine was tweaked to churn out 475 horsepower through the automatic transmission while 6 piston Shelby brakes were added to stop the beast. The suspension was lowered 3 inches and tightened up to improve handling.

Enthusiasts can choose to have the entire package applied to their truck for the ultimate Shelby. However, the styling and the power/handling upgrades can also be installed individually.

“We’ll install the Super Snake package for the F150 at the Shelby Autos facility in Las Vegas,” added Gary Davis, Shelby Autos vice president of production. “In order to maintain the high level of quality and performance demanded by real enthusiasts, we’ll only build a few thousand per model year.”

The Ford F150 Super Snake post title package includes:

  • Whipple supercharger kit
  • Borla exhaust system
  • DJM suspension
  • 3.73:1 rear axle ratio
  • Shelby-designed 22-inch wheels and tires with Pirelli P Scorpion tires
  • Forged Shelby / Baer brakes with 6 piston calipers with cross drilled and vented rotors
  • Custom front fascia, grill, carbon fiber splitter, fender vents and brake cooling ducts
  • Custom front fascia, mesh grill and grill surround
  • Custom side fender vents and rockers
  • Unique fiberglass hood featuring a hood scoop and classic Shelby design
  • Bed lid and rug with embroidered logos
  • Shelby signature Super Snake stripes
  • “Shelby” lettering across the rear tailgate
  • “Super Snake” vehicle badges and official Shelby CSM interior plate
  • Shelby signature embroidered headrests, floor mats and leather interior

On November 11th, 2008, Carroll Shelby invited some of the producers of the all new Shelby Official Licensed Merchandise catalog to his Shelby Corner Cafe for some gourmet food and good times. The cafe is covered wall to wall with memorabilia and photos. GT500 hoods hang from the ceiling and engine parts have been retrofitted as lights on the walls. It’s a heavenly getaway for true Shelby fans!

Carroll Shelby Merchandise and DenBeste Motorsports take SEMA by storm!

SEMA Show in Las Vegas gets a true taste of Shelby mania.

Attending SEMA (the largest aftermarket automotive tradeshow in the world) in the wake of the launch of the new website, and the distribution of the first-ever Official licensed merchandise catalog was a BLAST! The Catalog was very well received! Everywhere we handed them out, we seemed to barely keep up with the hands reaching for them. We visited several of the signing events with Carroll Shelby, as they happened through out the show. It was wonderful getting to know the fans as they waited to meet the legendary man of the hour.

On Wednesday we had the honor of co-hosting Carroll Shelby, as he signed autographs for a huge line of fans at the DenBeste Motorsports Booth. The process went so smoothly, that Carroll’s wife, Cleo, commented that it was “One of the best signing experiences they had ever had”.

Hot Food and Fast Cars—Full Bore!Guy Fieri heats it up! On Nov. 6th from 10:30am until 11:30am at the SEMA Show Las Vegas, Food Network Star Guy Fieri put on the first ever food cooking demonstration with two very special guests: Kenny “The Snake” Stabler, of Raider’s Fame, and the automotive icon, Carroll Shelby. The demonstration was hosted by Denbeste Motorsports and sponsored by Carroll Shelby Merchandise.

Guy created a special new recipe for the event, “Snakebite Shrimp” to honor the creator of the legendary Cobra, Carroll Shelby. Members of the audience and media had an opportunity to sample the new creation. The recipe will soon become a regular menu item at the Shelby Corner Caf at the Las Vegas Raceway, so if you want to try it, stop by the Cafe!

After the demo, Guy Fieri stayed a while to sign special commemorative posters for the flood of SEMA fans.
