Shelby introduced the F-150 Super Snake Sport concept at SEMA earlier this year and now the company has confirmed the high-performance pickup is going into limited production.
Set to debut at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona next month, the production pickup is based on a single cab Ford F-150 with four-wheel drive.
On the styling front, the model has been given an aggressive makeover as it sports a new front bumper, a ram air hood and a unique splitter. The truck also has mesh grille inserts, body stripes and 22-inch aluminum wheels that are backed up by a high-performance braking system with red calipers. Last but not least, there’s an aerodynamic toneau cover and a carpeted bed.
The interior hasn’t been forgotten as drivers will find custom leather seats, faux carbon fiber trim and billet pedals. Other highlights include new gauges, special floor mats and an individually numbered plaque.
Power comes from a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 395 hp (295 kW / 400 PS). Of course, you’d be stupid to opt for that variant as you can spend an extra $7,300 to get a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that develops 770 hp (574 kW / 781 PS). During testing, Shelby said the supercharged model has been clocked going from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in just 3.45 seconds.
Other performance features include a retuned suspension and a Borla exhaust.
Pricing starts at $86,085 for the naturally aspirated variant and $93,385 for the supercharged model – including the cost of a “well optioned” F-150. Only 250 units will be built for the 2020 model year in the United States, but a “limited number” will be available internationally.
