If a used Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 or a new seventh-generation Mustang Dark Horse doesn’t quite do it for you, then this insane Shelby Super Snake Widebody Concept from 2017 could do the trick.
The team at Shelby American built this very car on the chassis of a 2015 Mustang with the intention of seeing how far they could push the performance of the sixth-generation pony car. While Shelby’s products are best known for their immense levels of power and straight-line performance, the company made an effort to dramatically improve the handling of this particular car.
Immediately making the Shelby Super Snake Widebody Concept stand out from a standard Mustang and other Shelby products are the flared wheel arches that are 2.5-inches wider at the front and 4-inches wider at the rear. Slotted beneath these arches are 20-inch Super Snake wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires measuring 305 mm wide up front and 345 mm wide at the rear.

Elsewhere, the performance car specialists at Shelby installed fully adjustable coilover suspension from Cortex, Shelby American/Rogue Engineering tubular rear control arms, enlarged Brembo brakes with red-painted calipers and grooved and vented rotors, hardened wheel studs, and stronger spindles and hubs.
Adorning the exterior of muscle car is a Lightning Blue paint finish with black racing stripes. The Mustang also features carbon fiber front and rear spoilers, as well as carbon fiber wing mirror caps.
In terms of power, the standard 5.0-liter Coyote V8 has been fitted with a Shelby-Whipple supercharger and churns out no less than 750 hp. A cat-back dual exhaust from Borla was also installed alongside a six-speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels.
Mecum Auctions will sell the car at its Kissimmee sales event running from January 4-15, 2023. It has had just one owner since new and will be sold with 1,350 miles (2,172 km) on the clock.
