If you miss the SVT Lightning or you just happen to need a truck that matches your Super Snake Mustang, Shelby American just released the 750-horsepower street-performance truck of your dreams.
Fans of the classic Ford Lightning and our 2009 Shelby F-150 Super Snake have clamored for a new generation muscle truck from Shelby. — Joe Conway, Carroll Shelby International
To ramp up the performance with 750 ponies, Shelby added a Ford Performance supercharger atop the 5.0-liter engine and freed up exhaust flow with a Borla cat-back exhaust system. The company also enhanced the suspension for sharper handling.
“This is simply an amazing truck to drive,” Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief Test Driver, said. “Lessons learned building the Ford Mustang-based Shelby Super Snake muscle car and the Shelby F-150 were applied to create this incredible street truck. True to Carroll Shelby’s philosophy, it has more power, more sound, more styling and more handling prowess. From Detroit to Dubai and Dusseldorf, this is the ultimate expression of a high performance truck available through a dealer.”
The ‘Shelby Super Snake’ badge carries tremendous prestige because every vehicle that wears it represents the pinnacle of performance. — Gary Patterson, Shelby American
“The ‘Shelby Super Snake’ badge carries tremendous prestige because every vehicle that wears it represents the pinnacle of performance,” Gary Patterson, Shelby American President, said. “Our new Shelby F-150 Super Snake is certainly worthy of the name. From the sharp handling suspension to the thundering 750 horses and pure American styling, it’s a remarkable vehicle. One of our goals was to offer the truck in limited numbers to preserve exclusivity and potential collectability.”
Part of what makes the truck exclusive is its Super Snake styling, highlighted by its signature stripes and badges. On the outside the truck wears Shelby’s hood, rockers, spoilers, grilles, rear bumper and tonneau cover. That theme carries over on the inside with unique treatments on the seats, dash and floor mats.
With a manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including the base vehicle, of $96,880, these trucks are available in two- or four-wheel drive configurations. They also carry a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty and are assigned a genuine Shelby serial number that is documented in the official Shelby Registry.
