Today at the Detroit Auto Show, Shelby American unveiled a new 850 horsepower 2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake “Wide Body” version of their popular post-title package. The striking new Wide Body is an additional option to the already supremely aggressive Super Snake program.

The skunk works at Shelby start with a stock 662 horsepower 2013 GT500 and increase output to 850 horsepower and retains 50 state emissions. The addition of the Wide Body option gives you huge 13” wide rear wheels to help put that power to the pavement – something that is sorely needed with this car.

“Now with 13 inch rear and 10 inch front wheels that are wrapped in serious rubber, the car launches and handles like the super car it is,” says Gary Davis, vice president of production at Shelby American. The optional wide body package isn’t just a cosmetic change, it now gives the Super Snake much more traction and makes it easy to exploit the Shelby’s potential right past the competition.”

The new 2013 Shelby GT-500 Super Snake package starts at $28,995 (plus your 2013 GT-500) for the starting point which retains the 662 horsepower engine configuration, but adds all the suspension, wheel, and appearance items. Upgrading to the 850 horsepower SuperSnake package is $39,995, adding the wide body option is an additional $14,995 on top of either.

So if you start with a fully loaded 2013 Shelby GT-500 which is already $65,000 you can be well over $100,000 if you go all the way. You can choose your own stripe colors luckily, which include Satin Black, Gloss White, Silver, Blue and Red.
