The Ford Shelby GT-500 Super Snake will star in a new movie this fall with stars Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke, “Getaway”.

Opening nationwide on Labor Day, the Getaway movie also spawns a sweepstakes on August 14 where fans can enter online at FandangoGetawaySweeps.com for the chance to win a 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake, designed to match the movie car.

In the making of the movie, two genuine Shelby GT500 Super Snakes were used. One was driven in scenes filmed on location in Bulgaria while another was tapped for audio recording in Los Angeles.


“Since ’Getaway’ takes place in a foreign country, I felt strongly that we needed the quintessential American muscle car with enough star power to shine with Ethan and Selena,” said producer Courtney Solomon.

“With 725 horsepower, amazing capabilities and great looks, the Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake was ideal for this ‘role.’ Our film hasn’t even opened yet, but the tremendous interest in ‘Getaway’ by car enthusiasts is impressive. We look forward to taking audiences on the ride of their lives in the Shelby Super Snake.”

The film is a thriller in which the character Brent Magna played by Hawke, is aformer race car driver pitted against the clock. Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, Brent commandeers a custom Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake, taking it and its unwitting owner played by Gomez, on a high-speed race against time, at the command of the mysterious villain holding his wife hostage.

“We were pleased when the filmmakers chose the Shelby GT500 Super Snake for their movie,” said Tracey Smith, president of Carroll Shelby Licensing. “Over the years, Shelby cars have become a pop culture symbol of the American spirit and performance. The majority of Shelbys featured in past films were built in the 60’s, so we’re thrilled that ‘Getaway’ includes a modern GT500 Super Snake to illustrate how the brand continues to push the boundaries of power and performance today.”
