Shelby American introduced the production version of the F-150 Super Snake Sport pickup. It is known that the series will be produced in a circulation of 250 copies, and sales of new items will begin next spring.

The pickup was called Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport. It is made on the basis of the Ford F-150 in the version with a single-row cab Regular Cab. In appearance, you can immediately recognize it by the traditional Shelby models for two contrasting strips along the body, an aggressive aerodynamic body kit, an air intake on the hood and large wheels.

Shelby American President Gary Patterson, said that after the recent SEMA exhibition, enthusiasts, journalists and dealers asked him to launch the conceptual Super Snake Sport pickup truck. That is why the company seriously decided to speed up the development process. The brand is ready to begin production of the model in the first quarter of 2020.


 The new pickup is equipped with a five-liter eight-cylinder gasoline engine, which in addition can be equipped with a drive supercharger. In the top version, the power plant develops 770 horsepower, and the Super Snake accelerates to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) in just 3.4 seconds.

 Engineers of the brand also finalized the suspension and brakes of the new pickup. Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport will not be cheap for customers: a version with an atmospheric engine will cost $ 86,085, a modification with a supercharger will cost $ 93,385, which is about three times more expensive than the basic configuration. Nevertheless, analysts agree that the circulation of 250 copies will be quickly sold out, and a little later on the secondary market the car will be sold even more expensive.
