Mustang Of The Day: 2009 Ford Mustang Prudhomme Supersnake Shelby GT500

The Prudhomme Edition Mustang Drag Snake is different than any high-performance Mustang you’ve ever seen. It is surely a Shelby GT500 Super Snake with features that place it in a league all by itself. For the post-title Prudhomme Edition, the entire front end tilts forward like a race car for easy engine access. And who can miss the dragster-style hood scoop that crams fresh air into the Kenne Bell-blown 5.4L powerplant. With race fuel, the engine produces 800hp, making it the most powerful Shelby (or even Mustang) available today.

In street tune, meaning 93-octane fuel, the Prudhomme Super Snake puts out a still-whopping 750hp.
