427 Shelby Cobra Vs. GT500 Super Snake - 2 SHELBYS and 2 HOT LAPS
This just keeps getting better! After driving the 2011 Mustang GT500 Super Snake through the canyons near where I live...I was able to do a few hot laps in it on the road course outside Las Vegas Motor Speedway. And to make the day even better, I was able to do some laps in a 427 Shelby Cobra.
Thanks to Gary Paterson from Shelby North America for letting me wheel these cars during our photo and video shoot for Hot Rod Magazine when we had a blast trying to find out which is the "Baddest Shelby Of All Time". Look for that video at youtube/hotrodmagazine.
Don't watch this video expecting to see these cars at their performance limit...I'm not that guy. I'm just an average dude with a great opportunity to share this awesome experience and give my thoughts so fellow car guys can get a true feel for wheeling these amazing machines.
Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake - 750 Horsepower ROAD TEST
I was lucky enough to get the keys to this awesome car and wanted to share
my quick blast up this canyon road with any fellow gear heads. I'm just
your average car lover that happened upon this great opportunity to wheel
one of the fastest production Mustangs ever made! Chevy, Mopar or
Ford guys should appreciate this car...750 horsepower in a production
street car is flat-out cool. Unfortunately my lack of skills don't do this
car justice on the road...but this video will give you a taste of the
immense power, ferocious sounds and sexy yet menacing looks of this
American muscle car.
Check out the other videos on my you tube channel... there are a few more
road test videos with some great cars and build videos of my personal
project vehicle, a 1970 Ford Maverick with a Dodge Viper V10 engine stuffed

Thanks for watching!
Extreme Danger Rally Race in a Semi Truck
Pro Racer and Hollywood Stuntman, Mike Ryan, decided to accept the
challenge of wrestling his purpose built Freightliner Cascadia up the Mt.
Washington Auto Road in the 2011 "Climb To The Clouds" in New Hampshire.
This video feature shows the amazing talent and commitment it takes to
pilot a 10,000 lbs. Semi Truck with 1,950 twin turbocharged horsepower up an extremely
steep and narrow mountain road.
Mike's time of 8:02.65 to the top was the 27th fastest time to the summit
and was a jaw dropping experience to all who witnessed the Gulf Oil
liveried Semi streaking up the mountain.
With multiple on board cameras placed in dramatic locations around the Big
Rig...ride along and experience the sights and sounds of a full speed race
run up this treacherous road.
Don't forget to click the link above to visit MIke's facebook page and
become a fan to keep up to date on his exciting plans for the future.

Top Gear testing a Mustang shelby GT500
Starting in 2008, previous 2007 Shelby GT500 Mustangs could be sent to Carroll
Shelby's Special Performance Plant in Las Vegas to be rebuilt into a Super
Snake, which resembles the 1968 GT500KR, for an additional cost of $27,995.
The Super Snake will offer a 605 hp 5.4LEaton roots type supercharged
version with warranty. A Kenne Bell twin-screw supercharged version with
"over 725 hp" will also be available, without warranty and a 0-60 time of
under 4 seconds. The Super Snake is inspired by the 1967 GT500 Super
Snake, a car made by Carroll Shelby for Goodyear Tires
Automobile racer Carroll Shelby transformed a conventional Mustang into a serious track racer
designated as the "GT-350". The fastbacks were shipped from the San Jose,
California assembly plant and fitted with a "Hi-Po" 289, 4-speed manual
transmission, and included front disc brakes and heavy duty rear drum
brakes. Additionally, shortened hoods and deleted rear seats with
identifying trim were among the visual variations. These select Mustangs were converted to street,
road racing, and drag cars in Shelby's plant at Los Angeles International
