Shelby American has announced their 2012 Shelby GT500 Super Snake 50th Anniversary Edition Prototype Mustang will be sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction this coming Saturday. The car made its debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January of 2012. It was one of two prototype cars on display during the Shelby American 50th Anniversary Tour.
"The 50th anniversary marked one of the most significant milestones in Shelby American's history," said John Luft, president of Shelby American. "We're excited to offer enthusiasts the chance to be a part of Shelby history by owning the first black and gold 50th Anniversary Shelby Super Snake ever built. With the 750 horsepower configuration, we expect the demand for this historical Super Snake to be strong."
This Shelby, Lot # 1321, is equipped with commemorative 50th anniversary badging, custom interior, special wheels, six-piston front brakes, a car cover, and a unique prototype VIN number that is in the official Shelby registry.
