Video: 2011 Super Snake vs 427 Shelby Cobra


Hot Rod Magazine recently got the opportunity to pit a 2011 Shelby Super Snake against a 427 Shelby Cobra in the ultimate quest to find out which of these is the baddest Shelby ever built.  Rob Kinnan from Hot Rod Magazine and Gary Patterson from Shelby American ran each Shelby vehicle through a road course and down the dragstrip to see which vehicle comes out on top.    Who takes the crown as the baddest Shelby ever?  Check out the video after the jump to find out…


With a curb weight of 3,950 lbs. the 2011 Shelby GT500 sports a supercharged 5.4-liter DOHC V8 making 750 horsepower.  The 427 Shelby Cobra pumps out 550 horsepower while only weighing 2,460 lbs.
