Carroll Shelby was an early pioneer in high-performance street trucks, he first produced a version of these vehicles almost 30 years ago because of the tremendous demand for off-road trucks. The F-150 Super Snake is the new generation muscle truck from Shelby, and people are going to be impressed.

Oh, and be sure your wallet is bulging, because this super bad boy truck is going to put you out just under $100,000, which is also why Ford will only be making 150 of them!

The truck is not intended for off-road driving, but customers will be able to choose from 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive options. We even love the snake logo and Shelby name in various strategic spots all over the truck. This genius collaboration with Ford Performance and Borla for its development has really outdone itself.
