So I took my car out to Cars and Coffee in Las Vegas on Saturday and this was there. At first I thought it was just something someone had done custom, but I quickly realized it was a production-ready build. It's based on a Royal Crimson 2018 GT, and it was being driven by the President of Shelby American, which is right down the road from SpeedVegas, where the C&C was held. It appears 100% production ready, from the seats, the full Shelby brakes with the two-caliper setup on the rear, to the rear valance and diffuser, front clip with different grille and chin spoiler, all the badges, the new hood, etc. I didn't get a view under the hood and I wish I would've gotten more pictures, but it was pretty awesome to see!

Just out of interest......what sort of time-frame have you been given for delivery? On another forum, someone is complaining about a delay to receiving his '18 Super Snake.....but then I don't recall seeing any in private hands yet. In fact, the 3 in this thread are the only ones I've seen produced so far, although photos from SA show several more in the process of being built.

It’s nice but doesn’t look truly all that special for the money they want

They are just finishing up 17s and starting on 18s as we speak. My car is in build at Ford showing 50-60 days to delivery. Then expecting it to be finished October/November. The wide body cars are more involved and take a bit longer to build. Always takes forever but it is what it is on specialty cars! I had a custom backdraft racing cobra built almost took 2 years!! So, less than a year is nothing!lol

Would be a good looking car if they didn't plaster it with 50 different Shelby logos and decals
Agreed, I love the cars but the sheer number of Shelby logo's everywhere, less is more.
