Super Snake?

I live in Japan which seems (in my opinion) to be the capital of automotive impersonation. There is a Mustang that is labeled as a Super Snake but with only a 4.0L engine. Is that even possible?

this is copied from Wikipedia

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, for an additional cost of $27,995. The Super Snake will offer a 605 hp (451 kW) (at the engine) 5.4 L. A Kenne Bell twin-screw supercharged version with "over 725 hp" will also be available, without warranty and offer a 0–60 mph runs in 3.5 to 3.7 seconds.[25][26] The Super Snake is inspired by the 1967 GT500 Super Snake, a car made by Carroll Shelby for Goodyear Tires.

The Super Snake also comes with a variety of other performance, handling and cosmetic changes including badging, gauge pod, 20" Alcoa wheels, fibreglass ram-air Super Snake hood, stripes, carbon fiber front splitter and skirts, larger 6-piston Baer brakes, front and rear brake cooling ducts, complete track setup suspension, aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 differential gears and cat-back exhaust system.

Those are some ugly *** wheels. And this should probably be under the "grinds my gears" post but I hate fakes with a passion!

That would be a good thread for this. There are numerous "fakes" sold over here in Japan because no one really knows the difference.
