Shelby will only build a couple of units of this Super Snake. There will be a number of 500 units that will make it to the market in this special edition model. The starting price of the Super Snake will be $69,995 including the original but modified Mustang GT.

The customers will be able to choose from different colors available and will be able to choose either manual or automatic transmission. The said price is for the 670bhp version of car while the 750bhp version will be priced above than this.
