Shelby GT500 Super Snake 1967 went under the hammer at the auction Mecum
At the auction house auction Mecum sold coupe Shelby GT500 Super Snake model 1967, for which they paid twice as much as the predicted price. The new owner of the car cost $ 2.2 million. Thus, this Shelby for the second time recognized the most valuable and expensive Mustang ever put up for auction.
Sold Shelby – this is the only existing instance of such a car. It was originally planned to build a 50 coupe, but as soon as Ford found out that the cost of the car would be twice as high as the usual GT500 (about eight thousand dollars), the project was abandoned. One built by Shelby GT500 Super Snake in 1967 was sold for five thousand dollars.
Musclecar equipped with a seven-liter eight-cylinder engine with a capacity of 500 forces. The same unit was used on the Ford GT40 MKII racing sport prototype, which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans Marathon four times in a row – from 1966 to 1969. With this engine coupe during the test tests could accelerate to 273 kilometers per hour.
The car’s mileage is 500 miles (800 kilometers). At the same time, 97 percent of the original Goodyear Thunderbolt tire tread has been preserved.
In 2013, the same Shelby GT500 Super Snake has already been put up for auction. Then for the car paid 1.3 million dollars.
