Ford and Shelby Racing are back this year with the 2012 Shelby GT500 Super Snake. This is the fastest production modified Mustang to hit the market ever. The Super Snake was first introduced by Ford's tuning specialist, Shelby, in 2008. Shelby has been fine-tuning Mustangs for quite some time, but Super Snake is one model that turns the average muscle car into a ten second street car.

The 2012 Shelby GT500 Super Snake will get 800 horsepower this year, all coming out from a supercharged 5.4L V8. Around the car you will also get 20-inch Alcoa wheels, Borla exhaust system and a fine-tuned suspension to help you on those corners.

The 2012 Shelby GT500 Super Snake will start at $80,000 and for the amount of horsepower you get, it's well worth the price. Stats for Super-Powered Muscle Cars Trending: Older & Average
