Shelby, the tuning house that gave us one of the all-time most gorgeous cars, the Shelby Cobra, is expanding upward. Taking their philosophy of dumping a big motor in a small car, they’re, uh, dropping a big motor in a big truck.
Set to make F-150 Raptor owners even more insecure, the Shelby F-150 Super Snake will be a 750HP 5.0L V8 pushing either back or all four tires. That’s more than 300HP more than the Raptor, already a stupidly over-powered man-child toy. The suspension will also be upgraded to handle the additional power.
Dudes in Sons of Anarchy t-shirts are stoked. It can be hard when you’re a sad little weasel-person to intimidate people going about their daily lives. Like owning a gun or pushing a child the Super Snake will grant a false sense of superiority to the last people who should be feeling good about themselves.
