First 2014 GT500 Destined for the Museum
If you’re were hoping to get your hands on the very first 2014 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, forget it. No amount of money in the world would be enough to swing that purchase.
Well, at least not for the next few years.
The Shelby Automotive Museum located in Southern California, home of some of the most classic Shelby cars in the world, will get the first model of the new Grabber Blue pony car bearing the name of the iconic racer, according to a recent Auto Week report.
Built at the company’s new manufacturing facility in Las Vegas, Joe Conway, CEO of Shelby American, said the 2014 Ford Shelby GT 500 is considered to be the pinnacle of the outgoing solid axle Ford pony car.
“Carroll was very proud of its breathtaking performance, which was developed after Ford upped the GT500’s capabilities in 2012,” said Conway. “Since he was personally involved with both the pre-title GT500 and post-title Super Snake package, it’s fitting that the first car off our new factory line would be for Carroll’s Trust.”
Of course, there’s still a chance that of buying a new Shelby GT500, but you’ll want to act quick. Shelby American is only building 500 units of the new Super Snake and with a price of $28,995 for the lesser upgrade tacked on to the $55,935 cost of a GT500, they probably want be around for long.
The more expensive of the two packages offered, which features a 3.6-liter Kenne Bell supercharger that boost the power to 850-hp, cost $39,995 in addition to the cost of a GT500.
