Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 got ready for SEMA
Before heading to Las Vegas to participate in 2019 SEMA Modified Car Show, a Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150’s pickup decided to get some more touches to make it even more distinctive.
We are talking about a new modification package that was obtained by a 2017 Shelby version of Ford F-150 pickup, before it took part in the world’s most popular auto show for modified vehicles.
For those who didn’t like the idea of Ford F-150 Raptor ditching its V8, and getting a 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6 engine with a twin-turbocharger, generating 421 hp and 678 Nm of torque (450 hp and 691 Nm in US market), Shelby introduced Super Snake Sport F-150 Special Edition back in 2017 with a V8 powerful engine.
However, it seems that Shelby was not content with its tremendous achievements at the beginning of this year when it also revealed Shelby GT500, the most powerful production Mustang to date, with a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 that generates 760 hp and 847 Nm. So it decided to modify this Shelby Super Snake F-150 and take it to SEMA.
“While our current four-door Shelby trucks are extremely popular, hardcore fans dreamed of a two-door in the spirit of the great 1960s muscle cars,” said Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American.
“After an event where we were besieged with those requests, Vince LaViolette and I began penciling out a Shelby Super Snake Sport over dinner. We took that idea to trusted partners, suppliers, enthusiasts, and team members to collaborate on the design and content. The Shelby Super Snake Sport F-150 is that vision come to life as a concept vehicle.”
The modification job included lowering the height of this powerful vehicle with a modified suspension, a set of 22-inch alloy wheels surrounded by new tires, and a modified exhaust system from Borla. Other modifications made to this Shelby F150 pickup included a modified body kit for a meaner and more aero look, while the interior has the Shelby amenities expected of a super truck
