FIRST LOOK: GT Spirit Shelby Super Snake Speedster! UPDATE

** UPDATE **  Added three additional photos, one includes a side profile.  Enjoy!

Another North America exclusive comes in the shape of the 1:18 2021 Shelby Super Snake Speedster in Carbonized Grey with Black Stripes.  This example is set to arrive in May 2022 and is limited to only 750 pieces worldwide, and likely never to production in this scale again.  This car improves on the basic ingredients of the Mustang DNA and then some, read below for more details.

About the Shelby Super Snake Speedster…  “As you can imagine, there are quite a few differences between the Super Snake Speedster and your garden-variety open-top Mustang. The first, and most readily apparent, is the roof. While the factory convertible version of America’s most famous muscle car comes with a soft top, Shelby American’s features a custom-made hard-top tonneau system that turns the car into a two-seat roadster. Other Shelby-engineered modifications include a new front fascia, a ram-air hood with functional vents, aluminum wide-body front fenders, side rockers and a rear wing. Each example includes special Speedster striping and badging, and rides on 20-inch forged monoblock aluminum wheels wrapped in sticky performance tires.

The differences aren’t just superficial, either. Underneath its racing stripe-adorned hood you’ll find a supercharged 5.0-litre Coyote V-8 that churns out a whopping 825 horses. Even better—at least to some purists—the brawny mill comes mated to your choice of a standard automatic or optional manual transmission. Other mechanical upgrades that caught our eye include a Shelby extreme cooling system, Borla Exhaust system, Penske track suspension and massive Brembo brakes on the front and rear wheels.”
