New Shelby Super Snake Available to Order in South Africa


Shelby dealerships around the world, including Shelby South Africa, have confirmed specifications and production numbers for the 2021 Shelby Super Snake, including the eye-catching and extremely exclusive Shelby Speedster which forms part of the dynamic line-up.


To celebrate the 98th anniversary of founder Carroll Shelby, a matching number of Super Snakes will be produced, while the Shelby Speedster will be even more limited with only 25 units being built.

The Shelby Super Snake remains a popular choice for muscle car enthusiasts who want added track capability and performance from their Mustang, and it’s clear that the engineers at Shelby have not rested on their laurels. Ready for 2021 are a set of new upgrades which have been formulated to further sharpen the Mustang’s presence while adding more levels of premium refinement beneath the skin.

Engine Power and Performance

The foundation of the 2021 Shelby Super Snake’s performance is still Ford’s latest generation 5.0-litre V8 engine, although its appearance and output have changed significantly thanks to the presence of a high-polished Whipple supercharger. With the additional intake pressure supplied from the supercharger, as well as some fine-tuning and other performance parts, the new Shelby Super Snake produces 615kW, with power delivery sticking to tradition by sending it to the rear wheels for pure driving thrills. The Super Snake launches from 0-100km/h in just 3.5 seconds!

To ensure Shelby’s reliability as well as consistent performance is never in doubt, the rest of the conversion is extensive and includes a new cooling system comprising a new radiator, aluminium tank and heat exchanger. Providing unrestricted performance, accompanied by an amplified engine note, is a full Borla exhaust system.

Acting on the motto that power is nothing without control, the Shelby Track Handling Package is characterised by new high-performance tyres wrapped around 20-inch one-piece forged aluminium wheels. Behind that, a glimpse of the red calipers reveals the Shelby brake system with improved cooling, keeping the brakes at peak performance for longer.

Widebody Presence

The most notable changes to the Mustang’s exterior are the aluminium widebody front fenders and the steel bonnet from Shelby’s Signature edition. “The wider body allows for the use of bigger 305-inch tyres all round,” says Peter Lindenberg, owner of Shelby South Africa. “Shelby has also made advances on the aero package, hence a more aggressive front bumper and splitter with added veins,” says Lindenberg.

Further inspection of the Super Snake’s exterior reveals other functional details that have been designed with aesthetics in mind. This includes a rear spoiler, tail panel and diffuser and Shelby louvered quarter windows which have also been given a dark tint. Optional Super Snake badging and striping rounds off the look.

Shelby Super Snake Speedster

“The most striking derivative of the 2021 Super Snake is the new Speedster,” mentions Peter Lindenberg. The Speedster Edition transforms a Mustang Convertible into a two-seat roadster with a hard top tonneau system, accompanied by unique striping and badging and is only going to be available in very-limited numbers – 25 units are confirmed. The new Speedster also comes with Speedster Edition floormats and door sill plates.

Interior Refinement

The Super Snake’s unique appearance carries through to the inside, creating a cabin of premium refinement with sporty undertones. Shelby floor mats and door sills greet you as you step inside as do the new cluster and gauges. Carroll Shelby Mustang (CSM) numbering is a prominent feature on the dashboard and inside the engine bay, and this unique number will be documented on the Official Shelby Registry. A more extreme interior option and one that saves some weight is to have the rear seat removed and a harness bar put in its place.

Both the Shelby Super Snake coupe and Shelby Speedster are now available to order in South Africa.
