I say yellow since it's going to be a track beast. Black is okay but why not be loud. Hard to imagine you can't find a white one somewhere though

I know. but the white ones are all $4 to$7 thousand more. And I can't find any white 2015 leftover (brand new) anywhere with 1,000 miles of me. I found a nice 2015 Black GT with leather Recaro seats leftover (brand new) for $30,000. I'm really leaning towards that one. It's in northern NY. I love that yellow one but my wife is fighting me on it. She wants the black with black stripe.

I was once a poor college student. Now at almost 50 I'm having a lot of fun. Work hard, get great grades, and work your butt off at your first job out of college and things will work out...and you'll be buying Super Snakes in 30 years. (BTW...those decades fly by, so enjoy being young).

"Clone" in all respects but color. I was going to do a mirror image (SS is blue with white stripe....I was planning on building white with blue stripe). But, as circumstances change one must adapt.

The limiting factor is not the blower, it's the motor's bottom end !!

No. But they have #1 cars going back to 2011 that they run constantly at the track and they are still together. And these cars are driven by hundreds of different people so they get used heavily.

Agreed entirely.

Love that snake on your cold air intake. Mine is just black. Also you have colored valve covers. Mine are just black. When I build the clone I'm going to make the engine compartment look better than the Super Snake. It's engine compartment is very plain.

The cam covers on the 11 thru 14 GT500's are Ford Blue. ( 2010 MY were black )
There are things you can do under the hood, only limit is your wallet.
.....Whipple blowers are available in several colors........for extra $$$$.

I'm ordering all the parts from Shelby tomorrow. Will be placing the order with Anderson Composites as well. I'll have to ask Shelby if they have the Whipple SC that carries their emblem in colors other than anodized black or polished aluminum Those were the only two choices when I ordered the SS.

Just FYI, I haven't found the actual car yet.

Just an interesting factoid. The "go fast goodies" from Shelby will be shipped on one 4x6 pallet and one 4x4 pallet. Both stacked 42 inches high. Slightly over 1,000lbs combined weight of parts. And that doesn't include the body panels that are shipped individually. By talking to them, I learned am removing over 1,000lbs of parts from the car so there will be weight reduction when I'm done. I will weigh the car before and after the build.

Between work and this build, I don't think my family will see me for a few months Or, it's going to take a while to finish this car. Probably the later.

Suspect they order blowers & put their logo on afterwards. If they can order you one in color, what color would you choose ?

Probably red. I'd like to do the braiding on the hoses and accents in the engine compartment in red to match the brake colors. Car will likely be black on black.

Red will pop against black, only issue you may have is different colors of red from different suppliers.

Just made an offer on a new GT premium leftover 2015. Black exterior with ebony interior with leather Recaro seats. Fingers crossed...waiting for the sales manager to finish his wrangling.

Good luck on the purchase !!
I've owned 1 white car, never again.
I currently own a black one, never again.
Black looks great when it's clean, but it only stays that way for about 10 seconds.

Same on the purchase!
Having owned a number of black and white cars....yes it does take work to keep them looking clean. To me the only color for a Shelby is white.......just because I'm old and my 68-1/2 CJ was white...along with my 65 convertible and my 97 Cobra...

My wife got some say in this car. She had no say in the 50th anniversary SS.

I am now the proud owner of a new/leftover 2015 GT premium with leather Recaro seats. Paid $33,500 for it all (including doc and tag fees). Plus got 60 month 0% financing through FMC as an incentive....love that they gave me their money for free for 5 years. List last year was $42,000 (it has some other upgrade options like stereo etc that I really didn't care about but they were in the car).

So, black car with black stripes. Not sure that I'm psyched about that...but it will look nice and my wife is happy. She says the blue car looks too much like a matchbox car. I tried to explain to her that's the point....but she doesn't seem to see my point of view.

As a proud owner of a modded V6 I can only imagine how insane it would be to drive something even close to what you're building/have...

hahaha...this is the second and last.

However, now the dealership "business manager" is trying to reneg on $500 of the deal I negotiated with the online sales guy. I hate car salesmen. I told him he was going to lose the deal over $500 on a car that they've had in inventory for 12 months and has 430 miles on it (so it's almost not a "new" leftover at this point with that many miles). He ended the call saying "I have to talk with the owner". Ok...talk with the owner Mr. Bait and Switch. Jerks. We'll see what happens now.

You already hinted that a red blower may be in your plan, along with red brakes, wouldn't take much to do red stripes !!

That looks real nice. But....she wants something subdued. Matter of fact she wants NO stripe...I had to tell her it's NOT a super snake without a stripe. So...black stripe on a black car. She's getting her way on this one....sigh.
