F-150 Shelby Super Snake Sport With Fantastic 770 HP
America likes its own pickup trucks. It also likes V8-powered fast machines. It can all be found in F-150 Shelby Super Snake Sport.
This super-truck has a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 770-horsepower, with thin sports tires, race brakes, and aerodynamic front splitter.
In 2020 only 250 models F-150 Shelby will be available throughout the USA, and a limited number will only be available through select Shelby mod shops and distributors worldwide.
Shelby American, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., its own concept for the F-150 Shelby Super Snake Sport will put it into limited production, making it the fastest street-legal truck available through Ford dealer showrooms only.
The production F-150 Shelby Super Snake Sport for the first time will be shown to the public at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, AZ, from January 11 to 19, 2020.
Presented at the 2019 SEMA show, Shelby American received great demands to create a super-powerful V8 truck, which will come with a four-wheel drive and will be available in natural size. During testing, the truck went from 0-60 mph in just 3.45 seconds and reached 100 mph in 8.3 seconds.
Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American is said: “The F-150 Shelby Super Snake Sport was initially an R&D exercise to build a super-powerful street truck which would have incredible performance”.
“The reactions from Shelby dealers, enthusiasts, and media were unbelievable. In fact, they put a lot of pressure on us, to put this vehicle into production. Our team fast-tracked the development process and we will start producing this super powerful truck in Las Vegas during the first quarter in 2020.”
The F-150 Shelby Super Snake Sport owns a new brake system, throbbing exhaust note, Shelby-specific lowered suspension, custom wheels and he has 770 hp. The interior has stylish Shelby amenities and the exterior has a meaner and more aero look.
Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief of R&D is said: “While we’re most recognized for Shelby Super Snake Mustangs and Shelby Cobras, Shelby American pioneered performance trucks over thirty years ago”.
“In 2019 our four-door trucks can be seen on roads all over the world. But we were missing a two-door truck to scare the competition. The 2020 Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport is unbelievably fast, it’s a lot of fun to drive and has the track styling that Shelby fans crave.”
The Shelby American team collaborated with Ford Performance and many other partners with the sole purpose to create a super-powerful truck.
Many fans of this vehicle gave great support to Shelby American to put it into production and add some options that were not initially contemplated.
“The super-powerful truck was based on an entry-level trim Ford F-150 and had only 755 hp. Fans seek four-wheel drive, a higher content truck, and more power options. Тherefore Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport will be available either with or without a supercharger, with a four-wheel drive to maximize traction and more luxury. This truck will be the fastest in its class with more content than anyone else, from body panels, a system to the suspension, and tune ” said Patterson.
The price on Shelby super-truck is starting at $86,085 for a naturally aspirated V8-powered pickup. The 770 hp V8 engine will begin at $93,385 including a well-optioned Ford F-150. The truck comes with a 3-year warranty.
This super-powerful truck will be available through select Shelby dealers across North America. A limited number on this F-150 Shelby Super Snake Sport will be built by select Shelby mod shops and distributors internationally. We are all waiting for the moment when this vehicle comes on the market.
