Yea they should call it anything else. Maybe the next gen GT/SC. But Super Snake no way; super snake needs to be based on the GT500 or even the GT350, not the GT.


Release the Kraken!!!

It's stronger from the factory, and breathes about as good as a Boss.

No its not going to be a built "forged block. It still has the same internals as the regular 15 gt, so the only thing being forged is the crank and rods 750hp is not a lot as its at the crank. So its probaly making 650 at the tires.
Which is very easy to do on a coyote

I personally thought Ford did Shelby a disservice when they made the '13-'14's look like prev gen Shelbys (front end, grill). A GT called a Super Snake? How about a Focus GT40? :facepalm:

12.5 even 13.5 is not considered high now that e85 is so well known.

I don't think I'd want to take a supercharger to 8,500rpms. Or is that the red line on the Voodoo?
