2024 Shelby Super Snake is the most powerful ever with 618kW

The limited edition 2024 Shelby Super Snake has been unveiled on the international Barrett-Jackson stage in Palm Beach, Florida. One of the most highly anticipated vehicles of 2024, the 830+ horsepower sports car was designed to be the highest-performing Shelby Super Snake in history.

“We designed the Shelby Super Snake to be the pinnacle of our performance cars based on Ford’s world-class Mustang sports car,” said Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American. “It follows Carroll Shelby’s vision that each generation of car improves the breed. By collaborating with Ford Motor Company, Whipple and other top companies, our Las Vegas team created our best Shelby Super Snake yet.”

The 5.0L V8-powered Shelby Super Snake is offered in both 480hp (358kW) and supercharged 830hp (618kW) versions, giving it super car capabilities. The suspension was tuned for sharper turn in and the exhaust for better air flow, while the brakes and cooling were enhanced to leverage the powertrain’s potential.

This is Shelby American’s first car based on the new S650 Ford Mustang platform and it’s said to be the most technically sophisticated Shelby Super Snake in history. It sports aluminium bonnet, carbon fibre fenders, carbon fibre rear wing and lightweight magnesium alloy wheels.

The 2024 model are available in either manual or automatic transmission for both fastback and convertible body styles. Only 250 total 2024 model cars will be available in the US, with international partners receiving limited numbers commensurate with their market.

Each vehicle from Shelby American is documented in the official Shelby Registry. With its own Individual CSM number. This registry collection dates back to the very first Shelby vehicle produced and is a living legacy of all Shelby vehicles produced, ensuring the collectability of these vehicles with verified authentication registered back to when each vehicle is produced.

The Shelby Super Snake is offered through Shelby selected Ford dealers in the US and through International Official Mod shops around the world.

For Australia, Melbourne-based Mustang Motorsport is the Australian Official Shelby Mod Shop. Working closely with Shelby American In Las Vegas, Mustang Motorsport have been importing and upgrading popular Shelby Vehicles for Australian customers for over 18 years. This relationship continues with the exclusive release of the 2024 Super Snake with a limited production run for Australia.

“We are excited for the next generation Shelby Super Snake and can’t wait to see them on our Aussie roads” said James Johnson, Director of Mustang Motorsport. “If Mustang enthusiasts are looking for the most capable high-performance Mustang you can’t beat a Shelby!”

Australian Shelby Super Snakes will be built on a customer-supplied, Australian-delivered base Mustang GT and will receive the 830 Horsepower package supplied with ADR compliance and 3 year/60,000km limited driveline warranty.

Production is expected to begin mid-year in the USA with Australian Production to follow late 2024. Pricing in Australia has not yet been finalized, to be announced by Mustang Motorsport at a later date.
