There was a lot of hype and buildup about the Shelby American debut in Detroit and they sure delivered with a new 2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake ‘Wide Body’.  The GT500 Super Snake Wide Body represents the pinnacle of what Shelby American has to offer in the post-title arena.

As an added option to its Super Snake post-title package lineup the ‘Wide Body’ option will allow for up to 13-inch rear and 10-inch front wheels.  The massive tires will help put all of the 850 horsepower to the pavement as it screams down the road like a true supercar.

The price for the ‘Wide Body’ option will run you $17,995 in addition to the $39,995 (850 hp) option for the Super Snake package.  Those prices don’t include a base GT500 which can run you around $54,650.  All told expect to pay upwards of $112,000 for a 2013 GT500 Super Snake with the Wide Body option.  Not a bad deal if you consider other exotics with less horsepower cost over $200K.
