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

Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 HEMI - Special Edition ROAD TEST
Experience some sights and sounds of the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
HEMI Inaugural Edition. I was able to drive it on the same canyon roads
that I recently drove the Mustang Shelby GT500 and was shocked
at how fast and how great this car handles for being over 600 lbs. heavier
than the Shelby.
This limited edition 392 I.E. package will cost about $47,000 and features
the new 6.4L HEMI engine that is good for 470 horsepower and 470 ft.lbs.
of torque. The special interior is very flashy at first but fits perfect
with the overall feel of the car...which is in your face awesome but sedate
enough to live with every day.
Speaking of living with this car, during my grueling commute to work the
few days I had this thing, my fuel mileage average was 21 mpg combo which
blew me away.
Do I want this car, heck yes I do! But this price range has some stiff
The collect-ability factor is very high with this factory hot rod though.
Dodge will make less than 1500 of these so you had better get in line
pretty quick to own one.
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
Shelby GT500 Super Snake Crash in front of Camaro Car Show
An unfortunate Supersnake owner pulls out of the ford dealership and
attempts to show off in front of a bunch of Camaros in Wyoming. These cars
should require a mandatory course at skip barber driving school to
understand car control before taking ownership. As far as I know nobody was
seriously hurt, but seeing the needless destruction of such a fine car is a

Shelby Cobra - The Engine Sounds Wild
http://www.kitcarconnection.com - James Martell takes his Shelby Cobra
replica for a cruise.
I decided to post this video for all the viewers of my other video who
complained about the engine being drowned out by the music. They have a
point. The engine noise of a Cobra with the famous sidepipes is music
enough to a car enthusiast.
If you are looking to hear a the roar of the engine this is your video.
The car in the video was built in 2004 in Calgary, Alberta by Peter
Jacobsen using car a Mk2 Roadster kit from Factory Factory Racing. The car
is powered with a 302 crate engine from Western Motorsports in Calgary,

1965 Shelby Cobra + 700 HP + Kirkham + Fast
Replica 1965 Shelby Cobra owned by Len B, produced by Kirkham Motor Sports.
The car only weighs 2100 pound due to its aluminum body which is made in
Poland at a former MIG aircraft factory. The cars weight is also low due
to aluminum suspension and motor. The motor is a Shelby aluminum block
427fe which produces 700 horse power (i.e., FAST) !!! That is the same
power to weight ratio as a bullet bike.
To the dismay of several bullet bike riders; Len likes to show them who is
"the boss" in a race from time to time.
