Shelby Super Snake Giving Hellcat A Good Run For Its Money

By  | 

Shelby American released a limited edition Super Snake in honor of their 50th anniversary. Before you think that this is just another Mustang, keep in mind that this potent machine can crush even the Hellcat.

Under the hood, it’s equipped with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that produces 670hp but there is an optional supercharger that can yank that figure up to a whooping 750hp!

Dodge’s Challenger Hellcat, on the other hand, comes with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that churns out 707hp and 650 lb-ftor torque.

Shelby claims that this Mustang only needs 3.5 seconds to go from complete standstill to 60mph. Meanwhile, it sprints through a quarter mile in just 10.9 seconds. The Hellcat needs 3.6 seconds to hit 60mph in auto mode but .3 seconds more in manual mode.

The Super Snake can definitely crush the Hellcat but we doubt that FCA is worried as the Demon has been unleashed and this is one hell of a potent beast.
