    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.

    You obviously don’t rent a lot of vehicles. I expect this vehicle to be around $125-200 a day. It will not be unlimited miles but around 75-150 miles per day will be included. Full coverage insurance on your behalf will be required. If you have good credit, you may not even need to place a deposit.

    I take that back, Sixt charges a huge premium on their speciality cars compared to main players, Avis, Hertz, National.

    You can rent the Shelby GT-S from Sixt at Miami International for $277 (6/8-6/9).

    For reference, you can rent a Corvette ZO6 from Hertz at the same airport, same day, for $159.

    Seems like a fair rental fee to allow one to live with the Shelby for a day and allow one to decide if one would need more or less performance. I would rent one for sure.

    It includes 175 miles per day.


    Personally, it wouldn’t be on the top of my list to rent at that price. Between $125-200, you can rent the previously mentioned Corvette Z06, Mercedes C63 AMG, E63 AMG, Porsche 911 just to name a few.

    For that price/distance I can rent one, hit Atco Raceway, do passes all day then go home. Wonder if any in my area.

    At Los Angeles International, they are $191 per day with 175 miles per day included. Loss Damage Waiver is $60 a day. I would not want to buy one of these after they are used - the will be beat to crap!
