Bring A Trailer presents you with the opportunity to be the next owner of this low mileage example of a 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby Super Snake finished in Ruby Red Metallic over an Ebony leather trimmed interior.
Each 2017 Super Snake began life as a standard GT-series Mustang, before undergoing modification at Shelby American’s Las Vegas facility. The Super Snake’s 5.0-liter V8 was equipped with a Ford Performance Supercharger, which bolstered the car’s total output to 670 horsepower.
However, those longing for additional power could spring for an optional Ken Belle/Whipple supercharger, which increased the Super Snake’s output to 750 horsepower. The custom Shelby’s powerplant was also backed by a more efficient, high-flow cooling system, which effectively kept the engine’s operating temperature in check. Additionally, the Super Snake’s 5.0-liter V8 was paired with a minimally restrictive Borla cat-back exhaust system.
The Super Snake also underwent modification to the base GT’s steering/suspension system. This included the addition of Ford Performance’s specialty track handling package. Stopping duties were handled by a set of Wilwood brakes, complete with 6-piston front calipers, 4-piston rear calipers, and drilled/slotted rotors.
The Super Snake also featured a number of cosmetic refinements, which further differentiated it from the year’s stock GT model. Some of the most notable of these upgrades included the addition of a revised front fascia, custom hood, redesigned rear spoiler, and new rocker panels. Additionally, the Super Snake featured LED lighting, along with the model’s signature Shelby stripe kit.
One could easily pinpoint the 2017 Super Snake, over base GT models of the era, by its custom badging, which appeared in multiple locations along the vehicle’s body. This badging was perhaps displayed most notably to the rear of each front fender well.
Shelby American also made a few revisions to the Super Snake’s interior. The most significant of these additions included specialty seat trim, embroidered Shelby-signature headrests, and custom floor mats. The authenticity of each Super Snake could be verified by consulting a sequential placard, which each car bore across its dash line.
Our example here boasts a long list of factory options that includes a unique hood and fascias, 20″ Shelby American wheels, Brembo brakes, front and rear spoilers, and a Shelby performance track handling suspension in addition to a Shelby-tuned Borla exhaust system, SYNC 3 infotainment with navigation, a 12-speaker Shaker Pro audio system, adaptive cruise control, and heated and cooled front seats.
This almost-new 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby Super Snake is a highly acclaimed American muscle car with low mileage, and a 50th Anniversary Shelby Super Snake package for the 2017 model year. It is now ready to become a perfect companion for its next owner, whether for weekend joyrides, thrilling road trips, or as a bold and impressive daily driver. See the full listing here.
