Shelby American announced they will be showing the actual 800-hp version of the 2012 T500 SuperSnake Mustang at the upcoming New York International Auto Show.
This model had been announced before along with the less powerful 650 and 750 hp versions of the GT500, but it might come with a new look to New York. Shelby has also prepared a sort of online customizer so customers can build their dream Super Snake and get a price quote on it. New stuff apparently include matte white or matte black stripes, behind-the-door side scoops, and bright or dark finish for the wheels.
Shelby will also feature 2012 GT350 coupe and convertible at the show.

“With more horsepower, the 2012 Shelby GT500 Super Snake is a strong performer both on the road and the track,” noted Gary Patterson, vice president of operations at Shelby American. “This Super Snake will deliver the driving experience that enthusiasts expect from the Shelby brand.”
The new Super Snake post title package is one of the very few vehicles that generates up to 800 horsepower on pump gas. Not only is the high performance vehicle legal in 50 states, the unique, limited production supercar allows Shelby fans the opportunity to experience the power of one of America’s legendary muscle cars for under $100,000; this includes the Shelby Super Snake package and the GT500 base vehicle.
