Shelby American Unleashes 2024 Super Snake Mustang

Shelby's most thrilling and advanced iteration of Mustang in six decades



The performance community was left astounded today as #Shelby American unveiled the exclusive 2024 Shelby Super Snake at the prestigious Barrett-Jackson event in Palm Beach, Florida. With its jaw-dropping 830+ horsepower, this car has become the most eagerly awaited vehicle of the year, setting a new benchmark for the highest-performing Shelby Super Snake ever created.


“We designed the Shelby Super Snake to be the pinnacle of our performance cars based on Ford's world-class Mustang sports car,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “It follows Carroll Shelby's vision that each generation of car improves the breed. By collaborating with Ford Motor Company, Whipple and other top companies, our Las Vegas team created our best Shelby Super Snake yet.”


The New Shelby Super Snake #Mustang is a powerhouse on wheels that will leave you breathless. From the Shelby extreme cooling system to the Shelby by Borla exhaust system, this car is designed for performance enthusiasts who crave power.



“The roots of the Shelby Super Snake began with the race-bred Mark IV Ford GT, which won Le Mans in 1966,” said Gary Patterson, President of Shelby American. “That car's engine was the inspiration for the first Shelby Super Snake, a one-off experimental built for high-speed testing on the track. Over the years, the Shelby Super Snake has evolved but continued to keep its competition-edged' personality. The 2024 Shelby Super Snake is pure American performance.”


Equipped with performance half shafts, a short throw shifter (manual only), and a one-piece drive shaft (manual only), the Super Snake Mustang is built for speed and precision. The hardened extended wheel studs, open-ended lug nuts, and Shelby suspension system ensure a smooth and controlled ride, even at top speeds.


“We set out to make the 2024 Ford Mustang the most technically sophisticated Shelby Super Snake in history,” said Vince La Violette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Senior Designer. “Through careful engineering, we were able to add much more power while working to keep the weight more balanced with a new aluminum hood and carbon fiber fenders that also redirect the wind for ultimate cooling. Our lightweight magnesium alloy wheels cut pounds off the rotating mass so you can run deeper into and accelerate faster out of the corner. The featherweight carbon fiber tail wing keeps the retuned suspension firmly planted.”


This Super Snake is not just about performance - available in fastback or convertible it's also a head-turner on the road. With 20” forged magnesium wheels, Shelby brake rotor upgrade, and a Super Snake aluminum vented hood with hood pins, this car exudes style and sophistication. The carbon fiber hood extractors, Wide Body front fenders, and rear ducktail spoiler add a touch of aggressiveness to its sleek design.



“We have an unwavering commitment to the enthusiast,” said LaViolette. “With the Super Snake's competition heritage, we knew it was critical to dial up a car that is enjoyable during daily commutes and deeply rewarding during spirited driving. While the styling inside and out is certainly handsome, functionality drove every decision. This car checks all the boxes.”


Step inside and you'll find a luxurious interior upgrade that includes embroidered floor mats, Cobra puddle lamps, and Super Snake door sill plates. The Shelby shifter ball (manual only), serialized dash plaque, and engine plaque add a personalized touch to this high-performance vehicle.


“The 2024 Shelby Super Snake is visually stunning,” said Patterson. “It is such a contrast in styling from European marques yet has the performance capabilities to compete with them at half their price. With only 250 available in the US, it will be ultra-rare.”

The New Shelby Super Snake Mustang is a true masterpiece of engineering and design. With its powerful engine, top-of-the-line performance upgrades, and stunning exterior features, this car is sure to impress even the most discerning car enthusiasts. Whether you're tearing up the track or cruising down Woodward Ave, the Super Snake Mustang is guaranteed to deliver an exhilarating driving experience like no other.
