    Almost certain you cannot turn off traction control on these and it may also have boost by gear limitations. The last thing they want is to see their car come back on a flatbed with the customer starting with "What had happened was......................"

    It'll probably be a minimum $500/day if not more like $1000. Or $200/hr sort of rate like companies do for the exotic rentals. And a healthy damage waiver if not outright deposit. And you KNOW they'll have a full-suite of tracking and data-logging riding shotgun. "Sorry sir, we see here that you were doing 90 to 130 along XYZ canyon road. That was a clear violation of the terms of service you signed and therefore we will not be refunding you your damage deposit. Have a nice day."

    I'll bet most of the crackups will be in town on the strip though - macho man floors it and fishtails out of control until either plowing into the people on the sidewalk or hitting road furniture. Just see the zillion YT videos.

    If I recall correctly they are pretty big in Europe. Rent a lot of high end cars. BMW, Benz, Ferrari. USed to see them in the airports when I went travelled to European auto shows. They usually also had a pretty strong presence at the auto shows and sponsored various aspects of the shows.

    I'm normally a non-stock hater.

    But that's awesome. Really well done.

    What?!? Shelby American made a good looking mustang? Wow.

    The hood treatment is nice and modern. The spoiler as well. And the hood is muscular yet understated. Very nice. The wheels are killer.

    Even the interior trim is done well.

    The only disappointment is the power. It really should be around 700 hp.

    a car that looks like that and has the Shelby badge should not be getting beat by stock Camaro ZL1s.

    Other than that, dang. REALLY nice!

    I have been very critical of Shelby's recent efforts and I think rightly so.

    Very glad they have been going for a modern take and not settling for outdated thinking and styling.

    Kudos Shelby.

    Is it Orange Fury, or Twister Orange?

    They are using, finally, an EDELBROCK supercharger that they private labeled to Shelby.

    I asked the Shelby rep at Barrett Jackson why they used a whipple on the super snake and not the FP supercharger. He gave me a look and said, "A Roush supercharger on a Shelby"? I guess I missed something....

    It's like Steeda using ROUSH or BMR parts. ROUSH and Shelby compete with each other.

    Didnt Shelby and Roush collaborate in the old days? I seem to remember that. Recently both did the SR-71.

    I emailed Shelby again about this hood. Unfortunately there is no plan at this time to make this hood available to the public due to lack of demand.
